Hey asshole. I'm one that thinks that the NFL is NOT the make a wish foundation. I drove from shreveport to houston twice a month to sit through chemo with my mom for two years. Then I kissed her on the forehead as she passed away. Guess what. My mom wouldn't have wanted preferential treatment... I'll send you the biography when I get done writing it.

As for the idea that you would berate people? You are nothing but another internet bad ass. You have joined the ranks of wagon and SWT. That is reserved for the lowest of the low on here. I don't give a damn if you apologized. You berated people for an entire day. I've said something out of line before and apologized a few minutes later... you kept going. Hopefully your internet connection dies and we don't have to hear your drivel again.

Mike

I am not against your sentiment overall, but you realize that you overplayed your hand and have come off overly moralistic. If you want raise the subject of why the texans (or any other 31 teams) did not draft Herzlich, it is a more than fair (honestly even proper)question. But acting like an organization has a responsibility to be nice, while not even having the ability to discuss the issue with any sort of maturity (ie questioning what other people or their families have been through, etc) comes off as mean-spirited and is counter to what your sentiment should reflect.

I am going to give you some time to response and then will close thread. The general point has made.

Seriously?you are equating giving up the last pick in the draft to choosing between being a good football team or a good person? Seriously? You realy believe that last pick that we could easily sign as a UFA is going to or could be the difference in this team being good or bad?

Again it was the last meaningless pick in the draft and has this team not said from day one that it will be an example of class and morality above all? I think you can read 90% of the post in this thread and use the term mean spirited to describe them. I don't mean to push my morality on anyone but some people here act as though morality has no place in sports as if it's counter productive to winning. Having said that I agree that this thread has reached it's end. Kill it if please I have said my .02.

I care if you pm me? I care if you rep me? I'm not acting like anything. I neg repped you in private... then came back to the thread and figured if I would say it in private that I might as well say it in public so I did. I appreciate the feedback though. As for my mother? The only reason I brought it up was because you were telling people (who's stories you don't know) how they needed to go through something. I figured I would head off that at the turn, I wasn't looking for your sympathy.

Mike
