Re: Victor Cruz Class Act

We should be ashamed of ourselves for turning an act of kindness to kindle differences of opinion. I doubt that Goodell will fine the players for this, but if he does, then deal with it then in its own thread.

There is not much that Victor Cruz really can do in light of last week’s events, but it is such a breath of fresh air to see that he at least wants to and in some regard has tried.

But Goodell would have pretty dumb to fine Cruz, as dumb as that guy on some NFL management committee that admitted NFL owner collusion to the world.

I have alot of respect for Cruz for this. It's not an easy thing he's doing.

I don't think Goodell's image needs any more dings at the current moment. He's reached max level for the time being.



Kudos the the NFL players, coaches, and teams that honored these people.

That was so well said. Lol. Im a big fan of Pandas random thoughts, and also now a big fan of Cruz. Not because of what he wrote on his shoes, but the look on his face and his words, there was no disguising the genuine care and emotion for this little boy and his family. I would be willing to bet Cruz stays in touch with his folks for a long time - maybe forever. Good for him - seems like he has a heart of gold. Dude is forever solid in my book.

Re: Victor Cruz Class Act

This was a nice thing for Cruz to do, certainly. Good to know he's a decent human being. I still think his touchdown dance is absurd, and I'm glad no one on the Redskins does anything like it. I'd be humiliated as a fan.

Agreed, it makes me rage when he does it. I'm so sick of it.

I'd say the same if he were on our team. Santana needs to stop spinning the ball after EVERY catch and get back to the huddle too.

Re: Victor Cruz Class Act

Speaking of Mr. Victor Cruz, did anyone see that sick hit that Ed Reed put on him yesterday by the sidelines? Good grief.

For someone who hates the Giants you sure do watch them, alot.

I believe that dance is a tribute to his grandmother who passed on. Doesn't bother me. Lot more things to hate in the NFL besides that dance.

Now Garcon spins the ball, I think he got it from Santana. Shannahan defended the ball spinning last week. How do they do that?
