There was no reading into it on my part. You said injured, a term which includes all the specific terms you just laid out. Even if it didn't, it doesn't say much for you that you would wish any type of harm upon someone over a game. Personally, I don't want to see injuries. I want my team to win against the best the other team has to offer.There is nothing wrong with me. I'm a BEAR fan, I seriously dislike the Packers. Now just like a whole lot of other times, you have read way more into what I said than was really there. Did I say "maimed" or "crippled"?. NO. Did I say I wanted to see a career-ending injury? NO. Was I at all upset to see Woodson out of the game? No. That is part of the game. Boo-Hoo. I've just gone through 2 weeks of hearing about the Bears' QB Jay Cutler not being a real player, not having any toughness, blah blah yatta yatta, after a game-ending injury.
I have no idea if you know anything about this game, but it's a very painful memory for me, a BEAR fan.
In a 1986 game against the Green Bay Packers, [QB Jim] McMahon sustained a season ending injury when defensive lineman Charles Martin grabbed him from behind and body-slammed him to the ground on his previously injured shoulder (after McMahon had passed the ball for an interception and officials had turned their attention downfield).
There was no reason for this, both players were well away from the play, and would have no further impact on it's outcome. It ended McMahon's season. I seriously dislike the Packers. I don't like the Vikings either. I really hate the Red Wings and I can't stand the Mets. I'm a sports fan, a Chicago sports fan.
I'm sorry if you didn't care for what I had to say. I'm sorry being that you are a moderator that you didn't just have the courtesy to ask me in a PM to edit my post. That I would have done very quickly. I'm also sorry that since you asked me publicly if there was anything wrong with me that I had to make this post now.
As far as the moderator thing goes, you didn't say anything that disagrees with Cheftalk's posting guidelines. I disagreed with it independently of Cheftalk rules and it would have been an abuse of my status as a moderator to edit your post or ask you to do so.
I agree with you on the Cutler issue, though. It's incomprehensible to me that someone would think that he came out of an NFC championship game for anything other than good reason.
