    Re: Asian giant for HC

    <p id="story-body">To the New York Giants' Fans:



    As many of you know, I am contemplating one of the biggest decisions of
    my football career, whether I should retire or continue playing. Like
    all athletes, I knew this day would come when I would have to stand
    before that proverbial fork in the road. But I must admit that it's not
    until you're actually staring at the two diverging paths do you really
    grasp how impactful and painful this decision can be. I was hoping to
    make this personal decision quietly and without much hoopla, but given
    the recent torrent of erroneous media reports and totally inaccurate
    assumptions, I feel that I have to come forward and publicly set the
    record straight with those for whom I have toiled the last fourteen
    years--you fans.



    This off season has been one of the best in my professional career. I
    have worked extremely hard to make sure that I'm in shape and ready to
    tackle the rigors of another physical season. I am proud to say that at
    my body feels years younger and ready to compete at the highest level.
    I love training and preparation, and this off season has made it clear
    to me that this is one aspect of the game that I will miss tremendously
    when I decide to one day unstrap the helmet for the last time. I went
    into this off season with every intention of entering a 15th season
    with the Giants, the only team I've ever played for during my career.
    But I am human, and despite the images of me grimacing and tackling
    opposing quarterbacks and running backs, I have to face my mortality
    like anyone else. When an athlete like myself who does what I do for a
    living starts having doubts, then it's time to take a step back and
    seriously consider my future. Anyone who plays in the NFL with doubts
    or second guessing is not only putting themselves at risk, but their
    teammates also. I will never do that.</p>
    <p id="story-body">What 's been most disappointing has been all of this nonsense that I'm
    holding out for more money. The truth is that football has been very
    good to me and I have been fortunate enough to be surrounded by
    advisors who have ensured that my family and I will live comfortably
    for the rest of my life.You deserve to know what's really going on. My
    agent met with the Giants earlier in the year and discussed many things
    including my contract.Money is not the reason that I have not reported
    to training camp and it will not be a factor for my return. This has
    already been communicated to the Giants and while the reports may
    indicate a"hard line" taken by the team regarding money , it is not
    necessary, as this issue had been decided well before July



    Despite what some might believe there are those of us who make
    decisions that have nothing to do with money. Many athletes ask
    themselves daily if they are emotionally and psychologically at the
    level where they can compete at the highest level for twenty-four
    weeks. For them also it isn't about the money, rather a serious athlete
    asking serious questions about his future. All that I ask, after
    fourteen seasons,is that you afford me the patience so that I might
    arrive at my decision on my own terms.



    As GM Jerry Reese has said, the Giants are not going to hold a spot for
    me. I completely understand his stance as football is a business and he
    must do what is in the best interest of the team. I know that I am only
    one player. I want to express my thanks to the owners and coaches for
    their extremely kind words about my career as a Giant to date. I have
    been proud to wear the Giant uniform thoughout my professional
    career.You have my word that I will try to make the correct decision as
    quickly as possible. If I decide to play, I hope that you will continue
    to cheer me on like you have for all of these years. If I decide to
    hang up the cleats, then I will bid you all a tremendous thank you for
    the privilege to play a game that has blessed me in so many ways and
    created memories I will cherish for the rest of my life. I humbly thank
    you for your understanding and being the best fans in the world.



    Michael Strahan

    Re: Asian giant for HC

    Mike had since the superbowl to retire and let fans know.

    It makes no logical sense to be in this situation NOW.

    If he decides to come back, I will root and cheer for him since he HAS BEEN
    a great Giant for so many years and it is 99% chance that this is his last year.

    If he decides to retire then so be it as well....

    But he needs to end this drama now and just make a decision already...
