"It happened -- I'm over it, so they've got to get over it," Johnny Damon said of Red Sox fans' attitude toward him...
"It's something that happens year in and year out in baseball; players change teams," Damon said. "This was a part of it." - Johnny Damon
Um, you're over it? Then why all the quotes all over the place, Johnny. We've heard about your poor financial situation (how you somehow couldn't afford a house in Boston), and disrespect (when the Sox offered you the same contract as the more valuable team captain), and everything else you have to say...so...what? Fans aren't allowed to voice their opinions? Your word is more important and now that you say you're over it, everyone else is supposed to be, too?
If that is the case, shut your mouth. I don't want to hear your ramblings any more than I wanted to hear them last year. You are not an intelligent human being. You contradict yourself more than "Chef" Isaac Hayes from South Park. If this really is something that happens "every year" and is just "part of it" then what is all this crap about disrespect? You don't make sense.
You've made me sad, Johnny. I used to look forward to you coming out to play. Now you've pretty much destroyed that. You are just another guy looking for the largest check (hey, we all are...)...but we don't try to dictate public perception, too. We all would say, "Hell, I went to the highest bidder." We don't have access to the media to plead our case and then, in turn, to try to shut everyone else up.
You know what? I think that if you had just left and gone to the Yankees and kept your opinions to yourself that most of this would have blown over. Funny, all that you did here is starting to fade...I wonder why? Any ideas? Or is that all just "part of it"?
