    91% of RedsZone supports Junior

    Edskin proposed this poll in the Furman vs. Junior thread and I think it'll be interesting to see where RedsZoners stand. Simple question. Expound in the thread if you wish to be more complex.

    (Note to Mods: This poll will close on 05-10-2004 at 05:25 PM... Sticky-worthy until then?)

    yes yes yes; I'd vote twice if I could.

    Well, he does have one vote now. So I would say it is likely he does.

    What kind of poll is this? You know dang well that anyone that says "NO" is going to get bashed. This is baited poll, to say the least.

    As far as I know, you can't see how each person votes, only the total.

    I don't mean this in a snide way, but I have no idea how you voted, no interest in knowing how anyone else voted and AFAIK, no one else does either. The tally is the interesting part. Commenting in the thread is strictly voluntary.

    Nice to see you guys backing Jr. He's always gotten a bad rap, some of it deserved, most of it not IMO.

    Here's some good entertainment for you guys. There's a new grass roots campaign starting in Seattle to bring Griffey back to Seattle.

    Re: Do you support Junior?

    I've always supported JR.
    Don't think I've ever really hated anyone,
    but Andy Furman comes pretty close.

    Re: Do you support Junior?

    The poll is vague. Am I supporting him for some in particular, or just as a player/person?

    I said yes, I support him. I hope he overcomes all his demons and injuries and makes all these sportswriters/casters eat crow. Speak with your bat and your glove, Griff, otherwise don't give them the time of day!

    Though it was prompted by the Furman imbroglio, this is support in a general sense... or, like you put it "as a player/person."

    Re: Do you support Junior?

    I voted yes, only because without him performing at a high level the reds won't have much success, but as a person he's seemed quite snooty to me, ecspecially the last couple games, where I guess his line of thinking is hey I'm Ken Griffey Jr. I'm too good to be batting fifth(just me). I never been a Junior guy, but I am a Reds guy, so anyone in that uniform I root for.

    I think you need to clarify as to supporting him on what?
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations

    Native Cincinnatian.
    Grew up with the Big Red Machine, literally.
    Wanted to come back to play in his hometown.
    One of the greatest players in the history of baseball.

    If we don't support this player -- through thick and thin -- who will we support?

    Go Griff -- 15 to 500.
