Current NFLPA President Dominonique Foxworth has went public that he has likely played his last NFL game at just 29, saying “I think that I’ve probably made the decision that I’m going to move forward and stop playing football.” This isn’t exactly a shock considering his retirement has been a discussion since he tore his ACL during training camp in 2010, but being a former Terp, Raven, Baltimore native (attended Western School of Technology in Catonsville) and genuinely impressive man, I think it bears mentioning.
A couple of weeks ago I was at one of my many family parties and I was asked a very interesting question by my Uncle. He wondered why there was so much hate toward Lebron’s a couple of years ago with his decision while this year Peyton is getting almost no backlash and what the main difference was between the two? Of course he came to his wisest and most knowledge nephew to answer to this question and fortunately for him I have to the platform to do it. Before I write this one thing I do want to say is that I really didn’t have a problem with the way Lebron handled his free agency all that much. I think people tend to blow things out of proportion and I don’t really think that anything he did was that terrible, but a lot of people certainly did.
