You implied that LeClair's struggles post back surgery were due to his lack of toughness... what about his career EVER suggested he wasn't "tough"?

By the way, I think doing something repetitively when you know it is going to hurt is pretty much the definition of being mentally tough. Same thing with guys like Lappy that block shots with regularity.
