Sadly, sports and politics intersect again...sound familiar?

Navy Transfer Called ‘Coward’ In Hate-Filled Letter From Veterans

Notre Dame safety Alohi Gilman began his career at the United States Naval Academy, but he decided to transfer after his freshman season because he wanted to pursue a career in the NFL. According to a group of anonymous military veterans, Gilman betrayed his country when he made that move.

...Gilman...received from “six veterans and college football fans” who ripped him from transferring from Navy and ridiculed him over Notre Dame getting dominated by Clemson.

“You were honored with the highest appointment possible to the United States Naval Academy and were given a one year prep school scholarship because of your questionable academic record,” the letter read. “And how do you thank our great country for giving you a chance to serve? You spit on the flag and transfer because you believe you can make the NFL quicker. Much more talented players than you received their commission, served their country, and went on to the NFL…

(Prior to 2017, a rule allowed football players a chance to defer their military service for five years if they wanted to pursue a career in the NFL. Gilman...decided to leave after the rule changed.)

“…It goes without saying that you are a coward. Our military is probably better off not having you amongst its ranks, but this will accompany you throughout your life.”

Perhaps the most ironic part about the letter to Gilman is that it ripped him for being a coward, but those who were responsible for it chose to remain anonymous. If you are that passionate about attacking someone’s character, there should be no issue attaching your name to your opinion.

Couldn't agree with the opinion writer more on the last bit.

Somehow I think this young man will be fine with his personal decision as these "fans" wallow in their small puddle of hate...

the "T" in "TRANSFER" will be worn on the uniform as a SCARLETT LETTER by any athlete whom shall be deemed a transfer. :shock:

It's like local business owners who offer a limited selection of inferior products at higher prices calling people who choose to shop elsewhere "traitors" and "cowards"...maybe it makes them feel good, but wouldn't a look inward be more productive than foaming at the mouth and whining to the government to force people to shop at their stores?

Don't like that analogy, here's another one. The local movie theater shows the same old movie over and over again and wonder why customers are heading to the duplex showing new movies. Instead of reevaluating their business model, they instead rant and call the customers names and ask the government to compel them to only patronize the theater nearest to their home.

Yawn...spending hours every day searching through google images doesn't pass for having an original thought

Still waiting for you to take your tail out from between your legs and try to respond to that embarrassing beatdown Luca put on you in the other thread...note that he didn't need any pictures to do it

HOURS lol ... don’t let it get in your head bud! Have a sense of humor. If you’re going to embarrass yourself with “original thoughts” like movie theatre “analogies,” then you’ve got to be prepared to get called out. Troll better Rev!

LOL Oh God I better stop my life!! Look at you trying to be Luca’s Bundini Brown! You two are so cute! At least Bundini was honest about his alcoholism and actually said some things that made sense every now and then.

FTLOTM, don’t waste any more time with this clown. He’s the board mascot, the longest running troll still in the mix. He’s like a glitch in the Matrix, somehow still roaming around even without a purpose.

Survives by leeching off of others comments like a parasite. Asks everyone for “facts,” provides none, takes pride in making absolutely no sense at all “original thoughts.” Contradicts himself constantly (as evidenced above), acts as if no one notices. Posts political nonsense, then tries to tell others to stay on topic.

Claims to hate Trump; is basically a Al Sharpton Trump clone.

Don’t worry about Rev, I’ll keep him in line until we can get that glitch fixed :lol:

Sounds like the 2016 election, but I digress. Sorry, wrong board.

Getting back to the topic, still not hearing much from La Palma Ave. I think we lost two frosh football players at the semester changeover. Par for the course in any year. Hardly the mass exodus that a certain Bosco poster promised due to our "obsession" with the O.C. Buckeyes. Must be the same guy who guarantees that the SJB academic standards are second to none. :giggle:
