"Months after becoming the CFL’s Most Outstanding Rookie with a year that won’t soon be forgotten, the Argos’ running back has promised to become the first player in league history to record 1,000 rushing yards and 1,000 receiving yards in the same season."
There is no mention of a promise in the tweet from Wilder. It is a tweet isn't it?? I don't follow this stuff.
saying you are going to do something without the word promise, is not a promise. It is more of an intent or prediction.
You cannot promise anything when the fulfillment ofwhat you intendis not entirely in your own hands.
doesn't matter if he believes it, he didn't actually Promise it. That was just the writers word. You can believe something all you want, but in this case, he cannot promise it. He doesn't have enough control over it. I just take issue with media making inaccurate sensationalized statements.
I know that today's younger people are constantly misusing the word Promise. Saying such things as "I promise you I am telling the truth". Promise is about future, not present or past. Promise is about what you can control, not what you hope to do.
I would like to see Wilder accomplish this though.
