I was on a Sunday morning last week, and a fan was talking about the Cleveland Browns running back Joe Thomas and his jersey numbers, and how I had to do it, because the Browns would never let him wear those numbers.
He was trying to make me understand that this is a sport, and that I was doing it to make a living.
So I just wanted to clarify that I’m not trying to be a jerk.
I understand that it is a job, and I appreciate that it was meant to be fun, and it’s not that I don’t appreciate how the fans and the city support the players.
I just don’t know that the players have any leverage.
If you take away from what the players do and the work they put into it, it doesn’t seem like a lot.
And it also makes the fans more upset, because I don.
I’m still trying to get over that.
I still don’t understand why they would do that.
Thats why Ive never had the jersey number.
I mean, the fans want to have their team, they just dont know how to get that.
But at the end of the day, the players are paid by the fans.
Ive seen a lot of guys in the league go through that, and the fans can’t help but feel like the players just get paid to do what they do.
That’s the only way I can see it.
Theyve got to make money, and thats the only thing theyre really paid for.
But the fans have a voice, too, and they want to hear what theyre saying, so I guess that’s why I dont understand why we dont talk about it.
If I can give you a little perspective, the Browns just released a new jersey that Ive worn since my rookie season.
And Ive been wearing the new jersey for the past couple of seasons, and its been fun.
It makes me smile, and every time I look at it, I get excited.
I feel like I’m wearing something special.
But Ive always been the type of guy who can just keep playing, and play as hard as I can.
So when Ive got a chance to wear this jersey again, Ive just got to go for it.
And thats what Ive done.
