Plus, I'm bulletproof".
Current day Roy would say "holy cow, its too damn windy for this, there is no way I'm going up there and I don't care what anyone says. Hey coach, I'm staying down here".
And its my life experiences that have taught me that.
Exactly, there are hundreds of other kids on the Notre Dame campus that want that job. Stepping out of line, would likely have cost him his job. Perhaps the kid wanted to go into coaching. Stepping on Brian Kelly's toes would likely have ended whatever chance he had at making that a career.
Whenever you get mad over a called strike or ball on a close pitch, it's the equivalent of being mad at the QB pump-faking one time before throwing a pass in your average NFL game. ---Caveat Emperor
