Clearly Missing the Point

Look, sports fans, I’m not trying beat a dead horse but I think a lot of folks are still missing the point regarding Tiki Barber (see Tiki’s “Honesty” in the opinions section this site). For example, “Game on!” quotes Michael Strahan as saying that Jeremy Shockey doesn’t want to be with the Giants and that it’s not wise to keep him on the team if they hope to repeat. The site — clearly misunderstanding what Tiki did — then, speculates on how angry Giants fans would be if Tiki Barber said the same thing. Wrong! Giant’s fans understand that criticism comes with territory but — again — there’s a huge difference between criticism and character assassination. Strahan wasn’t demeaning anyone — not the team or Jeremy Shockey. He was simply, objectively, intelligently voicing his opinion without trying to be ‘cute’ or malicious or condescending. Nothing wrong with that. Nothing at all.
