I really don't understand what point you're trying to drive home, here...are you trying to discredit Elder's observations? I mean, whether he was familiar with Mickens or not, his original statement is true by default since 99% of people are less ego driven than that POS Long... Now, add in the hint of inside knowledge about Mickens from watching the local news and you have a solid case that Elder's point is true.

I'm sorry...I just don't see what this line of discussion is continuing when the initial rebuttal to Elder's statement was so trivial in the first place.

I think it’s really weird and ****** for us, who don’t know any of these people personally, to make personal judgements. I don’t like Long as a coach but I don’t feel comfortable judging him as a person, or pretending to know what drives him. You and Elder obviously do. That’s fine.
