On a side-note, what is this need lately to keep painting Tiki as some put upon victim? Tiki's own words and actions during and after his playing days created the bad blood between himself, the Giants and a large part of the Giants' fan-base yet somehow the fans who have issues with Tiki are the 'bad guys' and Tiki's the 'victim'.
One of these teams is not like the others
Strahan also held out prior to the 2007 season while he contemplated retirement. That was also deemed as selfish by plenty of people on these boards and the media at the time. Both Strahan and Barber have their flaws, but they were both great giants players and should be celebrated as such.
Tiki threw his coach and teammates under the bus. Strahan did not. Plain and simple.
Not even close, Strahan stuck around and learned to admire TC and win a SB.
