Re: You're a class act Joe Montana
GAC, that would be too funny. Kinda like the stunt the Lexington deejays tried to pull last year with their "100 grand giveaway".
Chip, that's what I was trying to get at. Your example makes it clearer. If it was all about the family, then don't set a price. Again, assuming the reports about the money were correct.
I'll admit that I sometimes take the "spoiled, greedy, rich athlete" stance on things when I haven't (and can't) put myself in that person's shoes. If the money stories were incorrect, then it's unfortunate that they were put out there. Me? I believe it, unless these "sources close to the league" had something against Montana to start with.
As for the earlier comment someone made about it being stupid and adding nothing of value to the game, well I guess that's a matter of opinion, and it's one I don't share. I thought it was really cool to see these guys again, especially some of the older ones. If the Reds bring some members of the BRM or the 1990 team back to GAB and recognize them in pregame ceremonies on the field, is that stupid?
Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.
