You sure seem certain that Griffey was in poor shape and lazy with your reference above as the the "truth on this matter", and your previous quote "Someone dedicated to the game and being the best they could be would NEVER have gotten overweight and out-of-shape like Griffey was for the latter part of his career".
Yet you also say "We have no way proving that he was lazy or not lazy".
At the end of the day you have you opinion, but you admit that you can't prove it.
I think what you really mean is that "people are not ready to hear your unsubstantiated opinion on the matter".
Not following your logic here at all. I'm not "contradicting" myself by admitting it's not a FACT that Griffey was lazy. I strongly believe he was lazy, but I'm not going to sit here and pretend like I have 100 percent of the information. Would you have preferred if I said "It's a proven fact that Griffey was lazy" instead of clearly saying it was MY OPINION that Griffey was lazy?
There's no doubt in my mind that Griffey was lazy. But I can still recognize the difference between fact and opinion. What's interesting is so many in this thread are pretending as if it's a fact that Griffey was NOT lazy.
