    I support any player who is wearing the red wishbone "C"...

    BTW, I agree with TC the poll is very vague - there are times I want to spank Jr's behind for some of his actions on and off the field.

    Re: Do you support Junior?

    OK, for clarification, by popular request, although it pains me to put too fine a point on this, especially since so many have voted and I have this nagging fear that I'm stepping into a minefield. <wincing smiley here> How about if I phrase it this way?

    "The RedsZone perception of Ken Griffey, Jr. is complicated. Most appreciate his play on offense and defense. Some wince at his high salary. Most wish that the rash of injuries which have befallen our superstar had never happened. Some react strongly as he spars with the local and national media. Setting aside the specifics like those... as a general rule, do you support Ken Griffey, Junior?"

    Before I update the question... I'd like to get a reaction from those who requested the change and from those who already voted but feel that they would have voted differently on this version of the question. If you don't want to speak up in the thread, just PM me and I'll preserve your anonymity.

    Nah! I think you clarified it. "As a general rule", I support Griff ..... and I think most would. I think he's great. I would just like to see a salary challenged team not have to rely on 1-2 players. I want a team. I want a team that gelled like 99. (On that note ...... I am open to "trade Casey, Griff or Graves threads when we talk about balancing the team and upgrading it .... even though it doesn't always come across. Depends on how the debate is presented.)

    Concisely stated. I agree.

    Excellent sentiment, shouldn't we all?

    As far as junior is concerned, it's hard to knock a guy that could just as easily dog it on defense like sosa or bonds and just sit back and hit homers. Thanks Griff for laying it all out there.

    I think "Do you support KGJ in his feud with WLW?" would be an interesting question.

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

    Go Griff -- 15 to 500.
    I agree with all of this, except it is now 13 to 500!

    I will support Jr. through it all. A really good person and ballplayer, not much to dislike other than the injuries which arent even his fault.

    Re: Do you support Junior?

    I've never faulted or ragged on a player because he was hurt. And IMO, regardless of who it is, I find it ridiculous to do so.

    Especially when I look at the manner inwhich Jr got injured... Giving 100% and playing hard.

    It has to be very frustrating for Jr. Alot more for him then the fans.

    If it wasn't for the injuries, then we wouldn't even be having this discussion/poll.

    Do I support Furman?
    Hell no

    Do I want Jr to do well?
    Yes

    However, I think Jr whines too much. Fans are fans and for 10 mil a year, he should not complain nor get involved with fans. It is crazy for professional athletes to complain about the media as well. Media want contraversey, they want the big story. For 10 mil, he should certainly respect the people who make his contract possible, the ones that make well less than 1/100 of what he makes, the fans.

    No, I'm not Junior's jock.
    My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, Commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions, loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife. And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next.

    Re: 91% of RedsZone supports Junior

    The poll is closed and the final results are in. 91% of RedsZone supports Ken Griffey, Jr. Thanks for voting!

    BTW, let me say for the record that Edskin is a genius! He predicted before the poll was even posted that this outcome would be 90%-10%, a figure which held for most of the time that the poll was open. :notworthy

    There was firebobboone.com and firebobdavie.com how about firefurball.com. Maybe that would make the retard shut his mouth, and stop alienating the teams most marketable and best (argueably) player.
