Yeah, it's not that you're disagreeing. In fact, I just stated my opinion once and left the "conversation" behind. I think I can sort of tell from your histrionics how you feel. I get it.

I'm suggesting you calm down, well, because you're not calm. That's how that works. No need to foam at the mouth because a few people question Ladanian Tomlinson's leadership skills, or lack thereof.

That fact that you're overreacting means you're not calm.
What is the overreacting? Because I "dare" to challenge things that have been said, or don't agree with the constant bashing of certain players? If you all don't want opposing viewpoints, that's one thing. But to tell me to calm down or that I'm overreacting (to what?) just because I don't agree with certain things that have been posted is weak.

I'm not sure where you got the 100% healed from - he only practiced on Thursday and the short pratice Friday. He stated he felt he was 90%, and that he would play. He hadn't taken a hit up until that point. He played, just as he said he would. Once he got in the game, he got hit on the injury and could not play effectively.

I don't know about the injury reports, etc - if you know someone is going to start, even if you don't know what will happen once they get in the game (does anyone really know what will happen with any player once they get in the game?), then should they be on the injury reprt? If so, then he should have been on the injury report. That's a management error, not LTs.


I think the "misleading the public and the media" abot his injury is innacurate - based on a super quick search, here is what was said on Thursday and Friday -

http://www.nfl.com/news/story;jsessi...o&confirm=true


LT clearly stated that he felt fine, but until he got hit, there was no way for him to know if he could play the full game -

http://www.nctimes.com/articles/2008..._351_18_08.txt
The way the injury reports work is, if a player is not listed on the last one before a game, he is essentially considered 100% healthy, meaning that whatever injury he had was healed. Not 90%, not 80%. Healed. Meaning it is no longer a factor. He was removed from that report on Friday.

The fact that he was in for only three plays indicates that the injury never went away, and he and the Chargers should have acted accordingly before activating him for the game. He obviously didn't go through a full pads practice and get hit before the game, or else they would have realized that he was not fully recovered. If he was held out of such a practice, he should have never been taken off the injury report. Plain and simple.

Now if he did go through such a practice and deemed himself ready to play, and then gets hit in the game and decides he can't play, you can see where the criticism is coming from. If he was able to handle it in practice, why wouldn't he be able to in the game?

I'm merely pointing out that such inaccuracies do not cast him in a favorable light.

Well, again, I'm telling you to calm down not because you disagree, but because you're overreacting. It's fairly simple.

No, it's because you're ranting and ranting, capitalizing, punctuating, over-stating ... do I have to spell it out for you?

It's got nothing to do with your opinions. It's got to do with how you're presenting them.

I intend to address your opinions as well, but that's nothing to do with what I'm telling you.

Also, you said his injury clearly "effected" his play. It should be "affected." Effected would imply that his play was brought about by his injury, when in fact, his injury made an impact on his play, his play already existing. Thus, affected.

Be honest, every single one of you said this line out line with proper inflection. Didn't you?

Three cheers for AP English. We're coming for you, China!

My bad. I didn't realize that what others have to say is fine, calm and rational, but my posts are apparently full of "histrionics". I understand completely now. Thanks!

I'm done with this thread, what is the point, since my posts are completely useless, hysterical, and full of bad grammar. Last I checked, this was a bulletin board, not the AP English test. Now I remember why I stopped posting over here last football season!

Legs are about equal in importance when it comes to throwing, so dubbing his arm the "main tool" does not do the impact of the legs on a throw justice.

I know its porpular for Pats fans to refuse to call him LT, but those are HIS INITIALS, its not like he went out and created a nickname for himself based on some other player.
But you're calm right?

Phanan, I did want to say (before I make my exit from this thread ) thanks for this explanation. I've never understood how the injury reports worked, this was helpful. Thank you!
