And people think I'm insulting.
May I just say that I'm not a sheep and I find nothing concerning here. Sure he may become injury prone but I'm not jumping off ledges with fright because of his play style and how it might impact his health. This is a reactionary position that you really can't prove will come to pass. You can't even suggest that it's a 50/50 chance without skewing data to favor your position. It's a risk, but far from a certainty.
