He turned around. I offered my hand and he took it.
“Those sincerely concerned, I’m doing OK & plan to B back by opening day. 4 those worried abt your fantasy team, u ppl are sick.”
My reaction at the time then was the same as it is now. Mostly disappointment in how a small but very vocal minority of fantasy players had behaved so Darryl Sittler Womens Jersey callously on social media to prompt that reaction from Arian. While we care deeply about injuries to players and our fantasy teams, players should not be concerned with it at all. Foster was worried only about his health and helping the Texans win football games and rightfully so.
The tweet got a ton of attention and Foster was one of the first guys I remember to be willing to call out fantasy players’ boorish behavior. Foster was 100 percent right in his message and I’ve given a lot of interviews over the years about this subject. My response is always the same. It’s like driving on the highway. Most people are normal, respectful, good drivers. But there’s always one jerk that’s going too fast, cutting people off, acting dangerous and then flipping you the bird.
That’s the internet, and specifically, fantasy football twitter. Most people that play are normal, respectful and upon seeing the news, just Dave Keon Womens Jersey wish Foster (or any player) a speedy recovery. But a small percentage lose all sense of perspective and it paints all of us in a poor light.
He put it best in a follow-up tweet, saying “I know opinions are usually cement. But, I love all my fans. My quarrel is with people who value a digital game over a humans health. #love”
But “Caillou” has no logic. No reason for being. The parents look exactly like each other. What weird cousin-mating thing is going on here? It’s like they have completely given up on life, both of them dumpy and dowdy. Rosie, the 2-year old sister, says nothing and just cries all the time and brings nothing to the table.
Some episodes they live in the city, some they live in the suburbs. Sometimes the Grandmother is the narrator, sometimes it’s the cat, but only as a puppet because as narrator, he’s puppet cat, but in the show, he’s a normal cat and if you think it’s confusing to read, it’s even more confusing to watch.
There is only one thing that is consistent about this poorly-drawn and even more poorly written show: Caillou whines. All the time. About everything.
Foster shares my concern and hatred for this show. As soon as I mentioned “Caillou,” his eyes lit up and we spent a good five minutes talking about how terrible this show was.
If “Caillou” has one redeeming quality, it brought Foster and I closer together.
Thanks for everything, Arian Foster, you will be missed. From all of us in fantasy football, thanks for all you did and I wish you an awesome and “Caillou”-free retirement.
And so, with or without Foster, the show must go on. Week 8 is upon us, and with it, six teams on bye. With the obligatory tip of the hat to researcher “Thirsty” Kyle Soppe, here’s who I love, and who joins Caillou on the hate list, this week.
