    E-Mail I Received That You Will Enjoy - From a Player's Mom!

    I'll keep this anonymous, but I received an e-mail from a player's mom yesterday. Here's what it said:


    Any player who makes it to the NFL is not a body at any camp! They are hard working players trying to make the roster. I resent people like you who insult players! If you don't have anything good to say why say it at all? FYI, [John Doe] was playing all positions on the o-line during mini camp with the 1st team and playing well.

    My Response:

    Jane Doe,

    Thank you for the e-mail.

    I'm sorry you didn't like my comment about your son, but it was not said in malice, nor was it meant to be insulting. It was factual; [John Doe] hasn't played a regular-season game since 2005.


    Thanks,

    Walt

  2. I see where she's coming from. He's worked hard all of his life to get to the NFL and then you play it off as if they are irrelevant even though it may be true.

    She e-mailed me back:

    Wrong [John Doe] started in the CFL last season. What ever you don't know your facts i can see that now.

    LOL def. not a camp body in the CFL...

    I e-mailed her back:


    Sorry, the CFL is not part of the NFL. If I ran a CFL Web site, I would mention that [John Doe] was a starter for whichever team in that league, but they are two completely different leagues. The fact remains [John Doe] hasn't appeared in an NFL game since 2005.


    Thanks again,

    Walt

    haha... cranky old lady with nothing better to do with her time. Walt, you're getting pretty popular when NFL players' moms are emailing you because they are upset about your opinions =P

    Spanos couldn't have played in the CFL, nor in the NFL prior to this.
