Meant talk more, not take more. And I had nothing to do with getting the interview

Re: Confessions of a Former NFL Agent

I look at it like speeding. When everyone does it then how can it make you feel bad? It was almost a requirement of the job.

I meant the more inclusive "you". As in "you all".

This is why the Southern "y'all" should become standard American English. It may sound hick-ish but it is useful in a language which otherwise lacks a second person plural.

I read 90% of that article and did not see one time where the kid needed the money to send home to his single mom with 4 kids living in a hell hole. You seem to have added that part to this entire article. Its seem like most of the players just used him to get some extra spending money. You also are saying that a college degree cannot change moms problem but even if the kid does not make it to the NFL he now has a degree (unlike allot of other poor kids) to make a good living to help mom.

Even though I'm a Chinese dude with no genealogical relation to anyone from the South, I find "y'all" to be a very cool term.

You don't read carefully do you? Read the thread, read my posts, tell me where I have even talked about the specific situation in the article. Then when your done doing that and you didn't find it go have a nice drink in the fantasy land you live in where the degree a kid gets in college has any value to these kids. They don't go to college to get a degree, they go to play football. Major college football is the minor leagues for pro ball. That's all it is. Oh, and a revenue generator for the schools.

Ok, you just added those as a side bar but when first read it seemed like you refereed to that article. That was what the thread was about but you added the part of the poor mom with 4 kids. It would actually sound better if she had 5 kids because 2 had been shot walking to school. So you really think none of these kids care about a degree or education? Maybe that true and another reason for me to have a few drinks and stay in my fantasy land. Tonight that fantasy land is actually the Chesapeake Bay chasing striper's (thats a fish).

Re: Confessions of a Former NFL Agent

Is it just me or did Mel the Viper cover his sleazy ass by admitting he doesn't know what he's talking about when he rates players?
