What’s Eating Ryan Fu – Tom Brady & Manny Pacquaio, A Nation Of Winners (It’s all out fault)

The NFL has suspended New England Patriots’ quarterback Tom Brady for four games without pay in relation to the “Deflategate” incident in which the team was found to have used underinflated footballs for an advantage in the playoffs.

The Patriots were also fined $1 million and will forfeit its first-round selection in the 2016 NFL Draft and fourth-round pick in the 2017 draft, the league announced Monday.

His counterpart, Manny Pacquiao revealed in his postfight news conference that he fought Floyd Mayweather Jr. with what turned out to be a torn rotator cuff, he has been criticized for his handling of the injury.

He has even been sued by disgruntled fans who say he kept the injury hidden to keep the fight on schedule and preserve his payday of over $100 million.

Some people have the sense that Manny Pacquiao sold out for the money. And by fighting with a torn rotator cuff, not giving himself the best chance to win, he somehow perpetuated a fraud on the public. 

However, you feel about these two superstars situation, you must realize that we had a hand in their downfall. We are a Nation of Winners and we hate Losers. We put them on the highest of pedestals then we believe that they can do no wrong. But that’s where our own hubris comes into play because our heroes aren’t Gods, they are just like you and I. They feel the pressure to be successful and be perceived as a winner.

It fucking annoys me when one of our “heroes” falls short on our own standards, even though we didn’t have the courage to reach for the stars like they did. Then we get butt hurt when we realize they are just like you and I. Just normal people trying to be successful in their endeavors, feeling the pressures of being successful. So, let’s give these people a break because if we were in their shoes, we would have probably done the same thing.
