Is anyone else getting sick of seeing Rick Reilly write (talk) down to all these atheletes/coaches like he's sports' equivelent of the pope?
First he criticizes arguably the great golfer of all time about his cursing problem (a topic well discussed on these boards w/ RR). Next he bashes some multiple championship winners including Phil Jackson and Federer saying; "There is a hideous new trend in sports that we need to stomp out like milkweed before it spreads. Scientists are calling it the 'Hey, look what I did, everybody!' syndrome. There have been three dreadful examples of it lately, all from people who should know better."
Enough Rick. Cursing and golf go hand in hand like meat and potatoes. If people are offended they don't have to watch him. Also, Federer wins a record setting major, puts on a jacket w/ "15" on it and Reilly is blaming him?! Likewise w/ Phil's X hat. I really dislike atheletes showboating but c'mon...they're making history for Chrissakes! Rant over.
