+1My main gripe with Tiki has always been the constant drum beat of his brilliance off the field. He spawned it, promoted it to excess and some here have been coopted by it. He was a great player on the field for us and arguably our best RB ever. Beyond that................. not much of a teammate, because everything in the end was all about him. One quick example: pre-announcing his retirement so that every week all the reporters would be talking about life after Tiki, in every city we visited. That was a typically selfish distraction introduced to pump up his own post football value but it served as a distraction for the TEAM.
If he were half as smart as he believes he is, he would be Walter Cronkite or our next Senator by now. Right?
We all should go easy on our rhetoric (starting with me) regarding Tiki but to suggest that the boy wonder had a grander more noble gesture in mind when he criticized Eli is just silly. Isn't it?
