“I think my behavior is reprehensible and, as I’ve said 1,000 times, I take responsibility,” Chaney told The Associated Press in a phone interview. “If it’s the judgment of the school to suspend me, I can accept the responsibility of my actions.”
I reckon this attitude is awesome. John Chaney sucked it up, and admitted he screwed up. No bullshitting and having his agent make statements/not answering questions. A great role model to stand up and admit that he fucked up. Yes – his actions helped break the kids arm which sucks…but he admitted fault and is taking the penalty like a man. We do things in the heat of the moment, and sports definately provide those "heat of the moment" moments. Just look at Ron Artest.
I know growing up, playing sports I was an absolute arsehole to my friends and competitors in the heat of the moment. My emotions would go crazy and I would do just about anything within the rules and shoot my mouth off to get any advantage possible. It worked a lot – but really pissed off some folks hardcore. In fact, a lot of my Chicago buddies still remember me for a lot of those moments and can’t get past them when we visit 10 years later. Good thing I was on their team most of the time…I was the teammate you loved to have, but hated to go against cuz I was such a jag off.
I am using the term "was" cuz I don’t think I am like that anymore…sports, when I play them, I can just about anything pass…I am more into sports of the exercise and to hang-out – not to win. Chris and friends who still play sports with me…is this true? (Tell the truth por favor)
