I don't have a problem attacking josh hamiltons character. The fact that he is currently addicted to heroin, although not using heroin currently is my justification. I don't care if he's 10 years clean, he will always be an addict. I'm just saying let some one else roll the dice.
I told you my problem. But since you and your other condescending friend don't get it I'll say it again.
Recovering. He is a recovering heroin addict.
He is not a heroin addict. He isn't using heroin today. To say it the way you did is callous, inaccurate, and *******y.
Yeah, his past problems are always hanging over him and absolutely any team has to consider it when signing him. Never said otherwise.
But you can say it with a little more tact. It is dismissive and insulting. We have people on this board, respected posters, that have talked about past problems with substance abuse. What you said was insulting to them and to anyone that has ever been touched, directly or indirectly, by substance abuse problems.
Now go away.
