    Spagnola: Travis Knew When To Walk Away

    [​IMG]

    SHELTERED IN PLACE, Texas – At first blush, my jaw dropped.

    Travis Frederick is going to retire?

    Then my mind raced. What's this going to do to the Cowboys salary cap?

    Then, how in the world will the Cowboys replace him? Centers who go to five Pro Bowls are not easily replaced. In the infamous words of Bill Parcells, you can't just go down to the neighborhood Texaco and pick one up.

    And finally, being far less concrete it was this: Bless his soul. What a brave man. A lucky Man. Frederick gets to go out on his own terms. Not many are afforded that privilege. And I'm not just talking professional athletes. All of us most likely. Heck, think about all of our amateur athletic careers. If you love it, you didn't quit easily. Usually someone cuts you.

    Mickey is such an insufferable pile of turds. You can just tell the guy thinks he is the Hemingway of sports writers.

    I'm not at all surprised, what DID surprise me was that he was able to come back and play last season. He's a tough dude, I wish him nothing but the best.

    TFred was one helluva solid professional athlete. I started watching him in college with hopes that he would become a Cowboy and he never disappointed me in any way. I have the deepest respect for TFred and the team and fans will miss him. He is one class act.

    So much deep anger. If posters (not you) dislike someone, still can at least be civil in use of language. But that's me.

    He smells like a guy who knows he's a hack and makes the best of it.

    Not angry at all sunshine. Just honest. Mickey is a hack. Even someone as silly as you should know this.

    This is why I have those, well, won't say it, but it is why I have them on ignore. Makes it so much better not seeing it day to day.

    this is true. Surprised everyone is buying into this. Fredrick would play another 5 years if things were on his terms
