Re: A warning to all Warpath members

I think it is very admirable that coles would share this story with everyone else. It really shows that he wants to make a difference in other's lives who might be experiencing something like this or might have experienced it in the past. It's pretty remarkable how he was able to cope with this and put it behind him and turn into an NFL star. It takes courage to come out with a story like this and I hope he has a good future ahead.

I always liked coles because he has always been a blue colar guy with a great work ethic. this article was great because it showed his motivation.

Re: A warning to all Warpath members

Coles' story is compelling and all too real in the society we live in. It just goes to show you that child molestation and rape is not alien to those in the NFL, NBA, NHL or any other sport. The most positive result of Coles' story is the fact that he seems to have confronted his past and moved to a point to share and hopefully help others to overcome such a tragic and horrible experience.

I always respected Coles because he NEVER appeared to be afraid to go over the middle. My respect for him has now skyrocketed; he's willing to talk publicly (in the New York Times no less) about something that is so very personal and emotional.

That takes a lot of guts. I applaud the man. Iím sure it will help other children that have suffered the same.

I definitely respect Coles for his attempt to help others while sharing a painful memory. Best of wishes to the man; I hope he does well in NY.

Re: A warning to all Warpath members

While I don't agree with the "who cares?" part (I tend to care a lot since I have a daughter and that tends to strengthen your resolve to have people who do this kind of thing killed in very painful and tedious ways) I won't simply give the guy a free pass on the way he treated our beloved Redskins organization. He definitely deserves our respect for being open and honest about this because it could help others out there come out about abuse. But it does not give one the right to be a punk. He was a punk when he treated the Redskins the way he did and this doesn't really change that perception. Maybe I won't look upon him with such disdain now but I still will hiold agrudge about the Skins deal.

Yeah there's no way you can call hima terrible football player. If not for the toe injury he is a top 6 or 7 WR. That is far from terrible.

Not too mention he has scored more TD's this year than our whole offense.....

You can't just separate the toe problem from the player. One of the big reasons he has the toe problem is because he refuses to get it fixed. And it's not like you can sign a guy and say, "hey, we'll sign you to a multi-million-dollar contract, but you can't bring your toe with you."

While I don't think Coles is "terrible" (I'd save that term for Todd Pinkston), he's definitely not going to help anybody win anything in the NFL. With that toe issue he is reduced to nothing more than a posession WR.

While I sympathize with his childhood plight, I can't stand him. He's self-centered in the way he demands to be used in an offense, and all the while he can't produce that way because he won't get his toe fixed. Good riddance.
