Because airplanes have a ready supply of Barf bags on hand.
Like Ive always said (and truly mean), a true measure of a man is shown by how their kids turn out
Tony Dungy notwithstanding, I agree.
Know some very good men, who have idiot kids.. also know a lot of bad men, who have good kids.. no hard and fast rule here.
Agreed, but "good man" doesn't necessarily equate with "good father" and vice versa, I guess. All I know is this: if one of my kids committed suicide, the rest certainly wouldn't be living across the country from me. Especially not if I'd already made all the money we'd ever need.
Im about to be a father (baby due on the superbowl, just to put me in my place on the get go) and I cant imagine ever having to deal with a worse thing...not that any man ever could...
It's funny how people are portrayed. I heard them talk during the game about how Dungy does not get enough recognition, citing the fact that he was 'quiet' as a reason for that. The comparison used was BB. Yes, BB gets lots of recognition and is often talked about - that's going to happen when your team wins three super bowls. But gimme' a break, BB has less to say than Dungy; in fact, it's one of the things the media complains about!
Regardless, when they compared the recognition of the two, the insinuation left in the viewers mind was that BB is self-promoting while Dungy is not. While the commentator was simply trying to commend Dungy on another playoff appearance, and tried to say he deserves as much credit as BB (a whole 'nother subject), he somewhat subliminaly dissed BB. I'm sure it wasn't a previously thought out plan of attack, but it did show his (Collinsworth?) bias.
The bigger effect though is the subtle effect on everyone watching the game: Dungy is quiet and humbe, BB is a loud mouthed egotist; Dungy is under rated, BB is over rated; etc. It's the continuous subtle little jabs such as this that are why the rest of the country loves Dungy and the Colts, and hate the Pats and BB.
The word class really sets you guys off.
I must admit that was a very classy post by the OP. This is a classy thread too.
The straight dope on Tony Dungy: The man has HUGE issues, and all the idiots interpret it as "class." Somewhere along the way he disconnected with himself emotionally. I think that might be how his kid got so f*cked up.
Ha ha, now there's a signature-worthy quote.
That's good... crack on the man because his son killed himself. I don't care how much I hate somebody (including Dungy), I would never try to make a statement against them using their child's suicide.
So then why do you continue to post? I can point you to a few good Colts forums if you would like. Don't expect to come to a rival team's message board and be treated like gold as the idiocy in that thought process is equally overwhelming.
Not really. Steelers aren't remembered for being on 'roids. 49ers weren't remembered for cheating the cap or having Bill Walsh (the 80's version of BB) as a coach. Both were remembered for being dynasties. We've been a dynasty buddy. Spygate will come up as an afterthought.
And that is why Colts fans are some of the biggest douchebags in the world.
