    Yeah I like this move, you get a 24yo first round draft pick and with little to no risk.

    It's a message board, we all speculate and assume things, don't see why this is any different. But I remember him retiring after a few arrests, so again, I just doubt he retired to focus on being a better father, but that's just my opinion

    And I thought you WERE the Silver Surfer. And not just THE Silver Surfer but the Jack Kirby Silver Surfer. :)



    And now I find you're a slacker. :(

    I hear that. I was almost dead-set on moving to Japan to become an English teacher there for a long time. Then my fiance and her kids came into my life. Priorities change sometimes, it doesn't necessarily mean that the thing(s) you left behind don't still mean a lot to you.

    I think about 29 different people posted a link to an extensive piece on his reasons for leaving the NFL. You can't possibly have missed that.

    One thing that kept recurring was that Curry stressed "football" intelligence as opposed to general intelligence. There are plenty of examples of this in professional sports (wat do voluntary mean;)), and is completely fine with me considering it is their profession.

    Well if there is one thing this team needs it's players with football intell. I don't know how many times I've muttered this may be the dumbest team I've ever watched in the last few yrs. here's hoping he sticks and contributes.

    Did he come out and say he retired to focus on being a parent? If that was posted, I did miss that. Haven't really been in the McClain threads too much

    Silver Slacker, huh. I like that. So who's the Golden Slacker? Do we have a Platinum one?

    I'd say those are levels the achievement-challenged could shoot for, but having any ambition at all would negate the whole "slacker" thing. My motto is: Start slowly - then taper off.

    Sometimes I hear about these really smart people... but they don't seem immune from making poor decisions.... intelligence and good decision making may not always go hand in hand...
    For example one be very good at their job but very poor with personal relationships and important life responsibilities...

    So let's get this straight.

    One bust speaks highly of another.

    This is somehow, good?

    Nobody is perfect. We all make mistakes. What counts is if you learn from them and stack good days together and get better each day. It's a process.
