I'm sorry Wes, I'm not trying to break the filter.
These "articles" are total and complete [ deposit from a bull that looks like Art Briles ].
The "writers" of these articles are washed up scheissing cowards.
The "writers" are writing about kids who are doing more than .1% ever will
The "writers" are writing about athletes who do not receive a true paycheck, yet the "writers" make money off of the kids.
The "writers" can go jump off a cliff.
Seriously though, years ago at a coaching event, Patterson made a remark that didn’t sink in for me for a long time. He said “the players you miss aren’t what kills you, it’s the ones that sign and don’t work out.”
