In Herb's article (http://www.montrealgazette.com/sports/f ... story.html), Diedrick had this to say:
" I have prayed about this. I asked God for it to happen. Prayers do get answered.?
I find that offensive,frankly. Just how self-important is he? The same god who ignores the prayers of countless women raped and murdered, the same god who ignores the prayers of far too many children who are victims of pedophiles, the same god who ignores the prayers of countless men, women, and children who live in poverty and are dying of starvation, etc etc, actually cares about which football team one Dahrran Diedrick plays for ?????
Ted Laurent said much the same thing when he signed in Hamilton. It amazes me how these football players think themselves so damn special and important, more important apparently than the millions of folks I just mentioned.
Far better, to my mind, is Romby Bryant's approach:
"At the end of the day this is a child's game and I'm getting paid to play a child's game." From http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/sports ... 87271.html
For that, I respect Bryant. I don't have any respect for Diedrick or Laurent.
