Terrible plan and terrible execution, but whatever

Serious question...do you know how to read?

AV said himself that he fucked up. Why are you treating him like a mental deficient who doesn't know what he's talking about?


Serious question. Do you know his applogy wasn't made under duress due to management pressure?


Did you see the presser?

Seemed genuine to me. No prepared statement. No weasel words. He seemed like an honest, stand-up guy.

I'm sure that you'll say he is because he's a soldier and you think that in and of itself is admirable, yet you also think he would can be cohered into lying about his true intentions like a common douchebag athlete.

Al wasn't lying -- he's a pure stand-up guy who fucked up -- he let his heart get in the way -- didn't realize the harm he was doing to his teammates -- if given another chance, he wouldn't do the same thing -- made his guys look real bad -- I don't believe that was Al's intention at all

Fuck you with your condescending remarks


You realize people can and do vote against party lines right?

People who can use their brains and think critically do anyway.

This.

Only a moron would take that as an insult.

imo this is THE biggest issue with America and politics..way way way too partisan. I know many people up here above the 49th parallel who have voted from our socialist left party, the liberal party and conservative party in different elections, myself included.

I did see the presser, 43 you obviously have no clue how true honorable military men think/work. He is throwing himself on the grenade to save his team. He is showing his true honor and sacrifice. Some people.... :roll:

So, Villanueva is a potted plant? :roll:

I take Al at his word-- no conceivable reason to believe he lies about this, or anything else. He might have the biggest assumption of integrity of anyone in the NFL.

I tend to believe the story that most aligns with what was said post-game and what makes most sense logically.

I also don't think the franchise would force someone to lie to save face.

On top of that I don't think AV would say he was embarrassed by the shot of him standing alone if he wasn't actually embarrassed.
