Default Re: Arian Foster's Week 1 availability in doubt?

I don't care about Arian's speeches in general. That had 0 to do with my initial comment other than mentioning the interview as a whole. I've said a few times now what part of the interview made my ears perk up.

As far as Arian always being a douche in press conferences or interviews, bull****.

Arian Foster doesn’t want his children playing football

I can appreciate that a father wants an easier road for his children. What father doesn't.

...well, there ARE those who wish to live vicariously thru their kids. (See RGII)

Just because he doesn't say all the eat breathe football things doesn't mean he doesn't put in the work. I was watching his work on the rehab side field, am familiar with his off-season training. It isn't like he's sitting around eating Shipley's.

If we criticize every non-robot answer a athlete gives then we as a fanbase deserve only robot answers. I actually enjoyed listening to the presser. He's very straightforward.
I'm with you on this subject. I think Foster is refreshing.

When players barf out the same old stale quotes to the press it reminds me of the movie Bull Durham where the rookie (Tim Dobbins) finally gets it and starts feeding the press the usual & customary answers they expect and they love him for it.

Boooorrrrring!

Not in the slightest.

They also beamed down J.J. Watt and Brian Cushing.

Soon, very soon, all will be assimilated
