I Love Comments

I have to say, I do love comments on my blog for 2 reasons.
1) It means someone read my blog
2) Its always good to get feedback.

So, you can imagine my delight when I received a comment from the aptly named 'Anonymous'. It was in reference to my article about Stephen Cohen.. In fact, here are the comments...

"regarding Cohen's comments: c'mon--act like a man and get over it. He, at least was man enough to apologize. And anyway, what kind of alleged "adult" bases his identity on a conglomeration of overpaid idiots who kick a ball around? Grow up and get a life for chrissakes. "

So, I would like to point out a few things.
Firstly, Cohen made the comments, apologized and then made the same comments again and from reliable sources State side, has made the comments on different occasions. Its not just a one off. The thing about the comments that irritated me is that he is not making fun of the team but rather making fun of the loss of human lives. If you cannot understand this 'anonymous' then I am sorry for you.

Secondly your comment "what kind of alleged "adult" bases his identity on a conglomeration of overpaid idiots who kick a ball around?". Please point out where in my piece I state that I base my identity around my team. I identify with them and I will wholeheartedly state that I do love the club and I love being a fan of the club. However, my identity has been built around my upbringing, event that have happened to me, people I have met and situations I have been in. Again, if you cannot understand this or have not been lucky enough to get an identity then I am sorry for you.

Lastly, the statements about "act like a man" and "get a life" and all that I just love the fact that you are all big and making brash statements and then send this anonymously. Your sooooo tough aren't ya???
