In Response to Re: Matt Light has Crohn's Disease
[QUOTE]Actually, I came to this thread to state that I thought it was pretty amazing that Light was able to have the career he had amidst his serious health problem. And I did say that. That said I was stopped in my tracks by a sophomoric comment about how tough Light was (and all pats are in general) as compared to others in the league. I thought this was bush at best and called the poster on it. Go have a fresca, Rusty. BTW - for your satisfaction, I'll say it again. Pretty amazing Light had the career he had in light of his very serious and difficult condition.

As usual, you look for what you want. I see nothing wrong with Pezz's comments whatsoever. You pick out what you want to see and then make it about you.
He simply said "you never know" in terms of not knowing things about the Pats and their players. The organization does a nice job of bottling things up and keeping things in house, as well as limiting drama. BB is classic for this and it's a benefit to the team and the players he tries to protect. What is the problem with him saying that?
Frankly, I think it's incredible Light played with that and was so good with the disease to the point I have no issue now talking about his potential as an NFL HOFer. That's an insanely great career while battling that disease. It's unheard of in sports to be able to battle a disease like that and play at that level.
And, regardelss if Pezz feels Pats players are tougher than others int he NFL, who cares? It's his opinion. Who are you to come on here and monitor Pats fans' opinions? Most people would say Pats players are blue collar and tough team guys. They are. There is a barometer of toughness here not seen in many other organizations.
Bruschi came back from a stroke for crying out loud. Brady has played with broken bones. You never hear a word of it. If it was in Pittsburgh, the drippy media there would act like it was the most legendary thing of all time.
All you, Mangione and Jints do here is troll annoyingly everyday, not giving this board any breathing room. Just forget it. I don't even mind if you tools came in here the week before a game between our teams, but it's way beyond that.
When are you going to stop this? I cannot believe the mods allow this to go on.
We have a right to discuss Light, his career and this sidebar news story about his personal battles with his disease without being annoyed and heckled by a person like yourself.
Please see a therapist. Seriously. Walk in there and tell him or her that you post at least 10 times per day on a Boston based newspaper's messageboard simply because the NFL team in that market got the better of yours years back and you can't handle the fact it happened, as well as the QB, owner and coach being better than you thought yours originally was.
Please go away until the season at least starts. Just admit that you're jealousy knows no bounds and walk away for a while.
