Exclamation What the hell?!

I just heard on fox 26 that VY gave his autographed jersey from his draft w/ the titans to a boy in his hometown of Hempstead. To me, you do not and i mean you do not give away your jersey that you got on your draft day am I the only one here or what ?! Thats just idiotic.

Well...it is his...so I guess he can do what he wants with it. Maybe some people would place more value on it but in the end, it's still only a jersey.

omg, r you seriously ragging on VY for this? I think the fact that it is something of value that makes this such a good act. I think he just made that kid's year, so he should be admired, not criticized for doing it.

At least he didn't sell it for 50 bajillion dollars to a crippled blind kid. Unlike his autograph signing in houston.........minus the crippled blind kid...unless you count John McClain.

Whatever, Titans jerseys hold no real value in Houston anyways.

I don't see it as a big deal at all. I see it as a very nice gesture. Especially in the age of athletes selling autographs or anything with their name on it. Class act!

HEMPSTEAD, Texas -- New Tennessee Titans quarterback Vince Young didn't hold onto his draft day jersey for long. He's passed it on to a 12-year-old fan with Hodgkin's Disease.

Let's just hold off on criticizing athletes for doing nice things for kids, especially sick ones.

"Geez, I can't believe Babe Ruth promised that kid in the hospital he'd hit a home run for him. The nerve!"

Unbelievable.

Nice. Critisizing a guy for giving his jersey to a kid with Hodgkins. Real classy of ya there Johnny T. If only more athletes were this giving of themselves, the world would be a better place. BTW - You could at least get your facts straight. VY is from Houston, not Hempstead.

"Young responded Wednesday to a request from Houston Texans linebacker coach Johnny Holland to visit with Archie Taylor Jr. Archie was diagnosed with the lymphatic cancer in December."

How dare VY do something nice at the request of coach Johnny Holland ,where will all this bleeding heart do gooding lead to?

Really props to Coach Holland and VY!

I just don't get it myself.
Certainly, nothing Vince Young has done or said has caused the "hatred" for him. The "hatred" has to be for all the Vince Young supporters attitude over the past few months. Threats from fans to dump the Texans and cheer for whoever drafts Vince. Cancelling season tickets if the Texans don't draft Vince. Full page ads in the newspaper asking the Texans to draft Vince. Immediate dismissal of anyone's opinion who suggests that Vince should not be the first pick. So on and so on. People just got tired of all the hype and the uncompromising and condescending stance of the VY supporters. This has unforutantely resulted in Vince Young receiving unfair criticism.

Of course, every word I just typed above could also apply to a large percentage of the Reggie Bush supporters. (except for the full page ads)

Back to the orignial thread topic. To criticize VY for donating his jersey to a child with Hodgkin's disease is inexcusable.

I think VY Titans jerseys will hold some real value in houston. Just wait to see the stores flooded with them and all the UT people buying them. His jersey will probably be one of the top sellers of all NFL jerseys in all of Texas
