Selfish Or Not Selfish?
Newly retired LaDainian Tomlinson
was recently asked whether he would have rather won a Super Bowl and not get in the Hall of Fame or get elected to the Hall and not have a ring. Tomlinson choose Hall of Fame without a ring
. I found the answer selfish, and asked people on Twitter for their take. Vikings offensive lineman Geoff Schwartz weighed in
, saying "I don't have much issue. Pros have 2 goals. Be best personally + help team. Guys will value one more than the other. but that doesn't mean they won't work to make both happen. Just didn't happen for LT so I can't fault him for saying that." Texans linebacker Connor Barwin responded by saying
, "It does 'sound' selfish but I respect his honesty. Every great player is selfish and there is nothing wrong with that as long a you understand you aren't bigger than the team. In the end it's an unfair question bc every player should want both. But while you're playing it should always be about winning a SB bc u can control that."And last, but certainly not least, Paul
"BizNasty" Bissonnette chimed in as only he could
, opining, "That's the dumbest thing I've read since yesterday when I realized I spelt "ruff" instead of "rough" in one of my tweets." What do you guys think?
