We do now ask that all of you good people register as a member of our forum in order to see the sugar that is falling from our skies, so to speak.
Something is really bothering me about Dawgnation
This is a Georgia Bulldog football forum......a really good Forum and one I've enjoyed for the past few years.
The Georgia Bulldogs have many former great players. But they have one player that is considered by most to be the greatest college football player of all time.....
Herschel Walker.......but for some reason many times when his name is brought up......the thread gets shuts down.
Not only was Herschel Walker the greatest player in Georgia history......he has always represented the school so well.
Successful pro football career......very successful career after football.....good father......proud American......and someone that respects this country and what it stands for. While also acknowledging that things aren't perfect.
A man that has dealt with horrible racism and suffered severe bullying while growing up. If Herschel isn't a person for the younger generations to look up to....... who is?
How have we gotten to a place where someone who has done so many things well.....and is a hero to so many......but can't be discussed in a Georgia football forum? Simply because he has different views than some on here?
I've started this thread so that people can discuss how awesome Herschel was and still is.
If it's determined that this thread needs to be shut down......a thread about the greatest player in Bulldog history and a great American.....then I guess this forum wasn't for me.
