    For those who don't have time to read it, interesting quote from a gump.

    Very telling, and sums up what most of us already know...

    I've often wondered that if the "process" makes you that miserable in order to win, then what's the point?

    $$$$$$

    Of course that's what everything boils down to.

    Was that a Gump player or just a fan? THAT would be something to bring up on the recruiting trail if it's an actual player. Talk about an eye-opener!

    I find it sort of sad that Les has never been to a bar in the state of Louisiana. Not that I want him to be a falling down drunk, but it seems to me that the ability to stop for a beer after a tough day's work is almost a God given right. I see where he's coming from -- doesn't want to get caught in an awkward position on some idiot's cell phone camera -- and I'd be willing to bet that, if he walked into the wrong bar at the wrong time, even with the best of intentions, some drunk might ultimately take a poke at him.

    I realize he's well compensated for what he does and certainly my heart doesn't bleed for him when it comes to money. But that still struck me as sad.

    I didn't expect anything less.

    The problem is, these kids that play for him and are DESTINED to be millionaires don't know that yet.
