Wow, i remember cracking up when i first heard about that trade, now I just feel bad

I think I'd feel worse if he didn't have enough drugs in his system to take down an 800 pound elephant, but it's tragic nonetheless.

Rest in peace, slugger.

Too soon?

No, I'm glad somebody's bringing this back to a proper perspective. He was a guy who nobody would've heard of, if it weren't for the unusual trade. He's presumably nobody's friend or relative here, and he was apparently a junkie. I'm not saying I'm glad he's dead, but I certainly don't understand words like "speechless" "shocking" and "tragic" being thrown around. I mean, is anyone here truly that affected or shook up?

Plus, the tattoo in Latin is pretty douchebag. It's my personal rule that if it's important enough to etch permanently onto your body, it's important enough to say it in your own language. I hate when people try to seem deeper than they are. To wrap up this side rant, pain doesn't even necessarily equal wisdom. Ask the guys from Jackass.

Here's my last issue on this story. The article mentions that he was distraught over the insult of being traded for bats. It's speculated that it might've drove him back or deeper into drugs.

Kris Draper was sold to Detroit for a single dollar. Did he implode in self pity?

No, he became a multiple time Stanley Cup champion.

Your a :censored: :censored: hole. Shut up and have some compassion, you douche bag.

I think Milo's absolutely right, though. It's the latest thing for everyone to be shocked, speechless, at a loss, what-have-you, whenever some fringe member of society dies.

If my cat died tomorrow, half of the members here would be completely devastated by the shocking turn of events, because all of a sudden, you're all a bunch of white knights who are so morally above the rest of us that you have such compassion for all forms of life. If that's the case, then grow a pony tail and start listening to Enya, Francis.

Perspective, kids. Learn it, so you can misspell it while you're acting high-and-mighty.

I just find it offensive how Milo thinks no one should care about how this kid died because he was addicted to drugs. I also find the word "junkie" offensive. Also, I'm not shook up but I do feel bad for anyone's family who has to deal with the loss of a person who dies before his or her time. And about the tattoo, who the :censored: cares. A lot of people have stupid tattoos. At least this one isn't completely meaningless like a lot of tattoos I've seen.

Why should I have compassion for someone who made a general hash of their life before the trade, judging from the fact that Canada wouldn't let him in the country due to an aggravated assault conviction. He could never play for them, so they dealt him for something they could use. Namely bats.

More importantly, I never heard of him outside of the bizarre trade, and probably am not within 10 degrees of them. Why should I be moved?

Patsox, stop making a fool of yourself and listen to Lee and Milo.

I will listen to Lee and Milo, but I will not agree with the way Milo presented his opinion. It was rude in my opinion. I will however listen to rams80. i did not know he had an assault conviction. I still do feel bad, though. People make mistakes. Look how everyone fawned over Josh Hamilton. This guy could have been the next Hamilton in a few years for all we know.

Just mostly. What type of wisdom leads you to do heroin and crystal meth at once?

And for people who were close to him...He died in November. And nobody knew about it for months. Nobody even bothered to return the coach's voice mail.

No, I said I think it's ridiculous that people are using terms like "speechless", "shocking" and "tragic", indicating that they're personally shaken up about the death of a person they've never met. It's not even like any of us watched his career and developed an affinity for him.

I also find the word "junkie" offensive.

That's just kind of silly.

And about the tattoo, how do you honestly know that this kid wasn't a huge fan of Latin in high school or something?

Maybe. And maybe all those douchebags walking around with Kanji tattoos were really passionate about Asian Studies back in school.

I've had relatives that have had serious drug problems. I would never disown them or call them a "junkie" because they were addicted to drugs. That is horrible and cold and that is why the word is offensive to me.

I guessed as much by your response.

I didn't say I would disown them. But call them what they are.

I suppose some people would call them junkies, but I still find that insensitive.
