Charlie Weis' Woes Lead to Poor Choice of Words

Jason SiesserCorrespondent IApril 30, 2008

What should really be looked at is whom Coach Weis is calling the thug superstars.  Is he saying that the thuggy stars outshine the well-spoken and less loud players who are also superior athletes?  I hope not.  For every thuggin' player who loves to thank his god for the ability to run fast, jump high, and catch or carry a football, basketball, or any other ball-oriented sport you have similar athletes who do not shoot their mouths off and speak poorly.  I don't want to point any fingers or add fuel to the fire but in all seriousness we, the consumers, are who drive the market for the loud mouth, trash talking, poorly spoken sports figure that exists.  Without you and me watching the games and paying for memorabilia some of these jokers would be playing backyard sports and working at McDonalds or Kentucky Fried Chicken or being bouncers at your local strip club.  I guess some of them would feel right at home there.
