    Poor guy. I feel for people that are obese. They obviously don't want to be that way but are mentally incapable of doing what it takes to lose the weight. It's got to weigh (no pun intended) on them mentally which further exacerbates the problem.

    I don't feel sorry for him.

    There is absolutely no excuse for RR to be in that bad of shape, ... None.

    A man in his position has every resource available to him to lose weight and get back in shape.

    He has the best excersice and cardio equipment available to him, .. he has the best workout facilities, track, and pool, he has the money to buy Nutri System or whatever he so chooses to buy to help him.

    He has the time.

    He has access to a nutritionist I'm sure.

    His schedule puts him at these resources every day.

    I'm not talking about every person who is overweight, .. but he has no legitimate excuse other than pure laziness and apathy.

    He doesn't know what color his shoes are half the time, or if he remembered to put socks on or not.

    Well, I do have compassion for him and other obese individuals. At least the ones that know they're overweight and want to do something about it but lack the mental strenght to do so. It's got to weigh on their minds constantly. I don't know if you've ever been obese, but walk a mile in their shoes, so to speak, and you might have a different take.

    You might try and actually read my post before jumping to this conclusion.

    Did you? Did you read it?

    Did you see the part where I said I wasn't talking about any other people that were overweight? Just RR.

    So stop with the "walk a mile" or the "high horse" crap.

    There are many reasons why some people are, or get overweight that is out of their control. Some have "conditions" that impact weight gain and prevent weight loss.

    I have compassion for those type of situations.

    I'm not talking about anyone like that. Only RR.

    But RR used to play sports, .. he was an athlete. He has no "condition" other than being lazy and liking to eat. (or drink)

    He has no excuse as to why he got that gut, .. nor any excuse not to lose it.

    He has every opportunity, and the resources to do something about it but does not.

    I'm sure there are many many people that are overweight that would love to have the resources available to them that he has. If they did, many would take advantage of it and do something about it.

    I'll stand by my opinion of RR.

    Not knowing Ryan as well as you obviously do, I still feel sorry for the guy.

    There you go with your reading comprehension issues again. You read stuff into what I put in my posts.

    I didn't say anything about knowing Ryan, I never insinuated that I knew the man, .. anything that I said about him is common knowledge for any NFL fan that watches sports on TV or reads the internet.

    Looking at the males in the Ryan family, weight is going to be a never-ending battle. Genetics play a huge part but it can be controlled in some manner with hard work. Clearly, they aren't putting in that work :eek:

    I realize that some can't shed weight no matter what they do, but I think Rob could if he put his mind to it.

    Just about everyone can if they put their mind to it. Some folks can't put their mind to it.

    I see a lot of players that look really fat. There is one college coach that is very heavy. Kansas maybe?

    Well, at least he had a big mouth. Not enough evidence that he's been able to actually walk the walk. I don't miss the guy a bit.
