Lastly, I have every reason to believe that players from the 30's would have fared better than players today (if I recall, Old Red Guard say that players from the 30's wouldn't do squat today), because players back then weren't relying on steroids and tons of "performance enhancers", and they DID (as Old Red Guard alluded to) bust their butts, often playing with injuries that today's prima donna's wouldn't dare play with. I appreciate Old Red Guard's story, but I've heard much better comparisons of today's players with those of long ago.
Son, you just whizzed on the Alamo, spit on Plymouth Rock, defecated on Ground Zero.
You could burn a flag in the middle of a Veteran's Day parade and come out of it with more friends than you will after that post.
