Kind of strange seeing Tiki sitting up in the mezzanine. I would have expected him to be on the field or much closer to it.

Fans left him alone. No one bothered or heckled him.

I didn't but maybe my daughter's friend did. He's going to send me his pics tonight. I'll post if he got him.

He was dressed sharp, with a brown fedora, a tie and cuff-links. Not your typical Giants fan!

should have asked him if he could afford the ticket or if rhonde had to shell out the cash.

lol rosy

no matter what , He was our beast on the field for many years. If not for him the late 90's early 00's would have completely sucked.


fans need to respect that. also, for being "broke" he sure has a hot GF and still drives an aston martin.

Such a strange story. One of our greatest of all-time becoming one of the most hated. It's certainly time for people to let that go.

It's certainly time for people to let that go. we live in a time that people are so socially senitive, in the old days players mugged people ,got coke and hookers left and right and we loved them for what they gave on the field.

I wonder who he was rooting for his twin brother or the Gmen.

I wonder who he was rooting for his twin brother or the Gmen. he has always said he roots for the giants and has picked us both times 07 and 11 in the SB. Not sure why fans act like he wouldn't

I for one, have never hated him for what he said about Eli or TC after he retired. Man's entitled to his opinions just like the rest of us. He gave us Giants fans the 10 greatest yrs any NY Giants RB ever has! He rushed for over 10,000+yds in his career & I believe only Jim Brown & Barry Sanders have a higher yds per carry than Tiki, 4.7 YPC for him I believe. He also had 4 200yd rushing games in 1 season & had he played 5 more yrs, would have been in the top 5 rushers of all time & a sure shot for the HOF.

I couldnt agree with you more. Tiki got a bad rap from so many Giants fans, all because he said how he felt. What, because he played for the team means that he has to lie about his true feelings, right or wrong??? So many on these boards cry about the right to speak their opinions, yet when a former player does it he gets ridiculed and booed. So many people are flat out hypocrites. Just because he played from the Giants doesnt mean that he can't say how he feels about the team.

I could see if maybe he said that Eli was horrible and that the Giants suck (in those words), but that was not the case.

I hate seeing Giants fans boo Tiki. Hypocrites. So many people are just mindless followers, just birds in a flock following all of the other birds.

Probably not as bad as when #20 got burned repeatedly in the 2007 playoffs...

We also live in a time where people like to play victim and blame everyone but themselves. I hate that Tiki blamed Coughlin for "robbing me of my passion for football" (from his book)...

Cause he got burned on one play? It happens.
I'll have to re-watch the game, but I didn't see him lay an egg when I initially watched.

Nothing but respect for Ronde. To play at the level that he has, at his age, as a DB is absolutely mind-boggling that I just don't think people are able to put it into perspective. He's an iron man. Dude starts 200 games in a row, we have DB's half his age who can't even go 3 plays without blowing an MCL.
