HOLD UP! WAAIIITTTT A MINUTE!
"it's ok to be a shit citizen".
who says that they are a "shit citizen"?
hey, i don't know all these people or what their apparent crimes have been, but let's not enter the realm of the "SELF-RIGHTEOUS S.O.B.'S"
what about the example YOU are setting or SUPPOSED to be setting and the message you're sending???
oh that's right, you're not a celebrity therefore you don't have to be a "role model / good citizen"!!!
your dirty laundry is tucked away nice and neat and that's just where it's going to stay.
in the meantime, let's bring up someone else's skeletons and have ourselves a little debate....by doing so, everyone's enjoying themselves and are much too busy to point out my FCUK UPS!
you know........i've had it up to my diamond studs with YOU PEOPLE who think that these guys/girls owe you something........like it's their responsibility to make life easier for you & your kids.
like they're supposed to NOT fall into traps that you yourself or someone you know and love fell into.
"no, it's just that i want my kids to be the best that they can be and you have to help me with that because i don't qualify"!
"just because i can dunk a basketball......doesn't mean i should raise your kids".
"YA DAMN SKIPPY"
YOU put in the 5 minutes that started these kids on their journey, so you should RAISE your own DAMN kids.
you're responsible for them....."HOOK, LINE & SINKER", not johncock, kobe or ken cole.
that's right you heard me.
YOU should be the ultimate role model to your kids, brothers, sisters, etc., because they smell, hear, feel, touch and see (OBSERVE) you more than the crows, port power, 36ers, fellas/lightning and any other professional clubs and athletes rolled into one.
i mean really, just take yourself off the hook, why don't you!
......"mcdonald's made me fat".
now i fully understand what it means to be a good citizen, but this shit is OVERKILL.
pete rose should be in the baseball hall of fame, because he's one of the greatest baseball players to ever play the game.
now as a person, maybe he's cool...maybe not, i really don't know.
what i do know is that he had a gambling problem. he bet on baseball. that's a no-no. he was banned for life from baseball. those were the consequences of his actions.
if you feel that what pete done wasn't morally or ethically right.......you're correct.
if you're saying that what these guys above done wasn't morally or ethically right.......maybe you're correct again.
but just like pete, haven't they PAID THEIR DUES / DONE THEIR TIME?
there names & legacy may have been
tarnished, some ruined.
their livelihoods may have been tarnished, some ruined.
they've made mistakes, whether it was foolish, stupid, childish, or otherwise.......we should all GET OVER IT and turn over our membership cards to "S.R.S.O.B. CLUB"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
"ONLY GOD CAN JUDGE ME"
my wife and i hope to have kids one day.....if we do, we're not going to expect a professional athlete, coach, or any other celebrity to raise our kids.
yea, it's ok to have heroes, but we'll teach them that their/our heroes are human beings and human beings are FALLIBLE.
it's ok if you want to be as good a basketball player as michael jordan, BUT, you shouldn't worship him or have unrealistic expectations of them....
......and you shouldn't judge them!
"should we proceed"?
"because he's only HUMAN".
oh yea, for those of you who miss the point............NO, i don't condone!
