No matter where you live in the world, there are objective standards of right and wrong that guide behavior. Just because you come from a "tough" neighborhood doesn't give you the right to act like a complete jackass.
I understand that Roach has a big mouth, but his trash talk has been boxing related for the most part. I don't mind the hyping of a fight, but there are certain ethical boundaries that you should not cross.
Dude, I hear you and am in complete agreement with you. I was referring to the kids when I was talking about the neighborhood. I was merely making a point that Garcia isn't the one that made those kids that way, he's just the one's trying to help them.
As for Marg and Rios, there is no excuse and I stated that.

OJ, TO, LT are all HOF's in my book. However compared to other HOF's like Rice, Emmit Smith, and Steve Young are HOF's on and off the field. That’s probably why Young is still on Toyota commercials and Emmits still doing just for men commercials way past their playing days while OJ and LT are enjoying retirement in prison.
Sports is entertainment. What you find entertaining is subjective. If you value flash and brash more power to you. Unfortunately sports is more than just entertainment.
Shekwan, best post of the day bud. Nice change from all the PED trolls on this board.
I get it and I agree but he was saying that their attitudes are a reflexion of their success or failures, which is just nonsense you read in fairy tales. I try to be the best person I can be but that's not going to make me win in a fight vs someone who is better than me, no matter what a douche bag they may be.
