>was told as a young child that he would be slow mentally

If he's been told that much of his life (and I have no reason to believe that they were correct), maybe that's why he's so quick to assume that anybody who criticizes an ACTION of his, must really hate HIM.

Criticism of actions and personal hate are two entirely different things.

I can like somebody as a person very much, yet intensely dislike something that they do.

Since 99.9% of us have never met Drummond, I'd say that NONE of us really hate him. But he seems to be convinced otherwise.

Well if he came on here and read some of the remarks posted about him, I don't see it being too far fetched for him to think that. I have seen many attacks on him as a person and his character.

Based on some of the holier than thou comments on this board this statement is absolutely absurd.

I don't believe that Jon Drummond (or Maurice Greene, or for all I know Ricky Henderson or Allen Iverson, and so on ad infinitum) are jerks.
I bet if you were stuck on a highway with a broken-down car and Drummond came along he would stop and help you.

We must remember that among young inner-city males there is a culture that rewards a particular kind of behavior. The ability to trash talk and the willingness to fight back when challenged or "dissed" are considered cool attributes.

Then when some of these men because of their unusual athletic skills are exposed to a wider public they continue to exhibit what they thought were "good" habits and they are probably bewildered to find that we think of them as buffoons or jerks.

I happen to find your statement a little unfounded. Do you even know what kind of upbringing Jon Drummond had? Seems to me that you don't have too much of an idea of what you are talking about but thought you would just throw out some assinine reason and hope it sounded good.

Give it up sleeper - he didn't even mention Drummond in his statement, and you know what he said is generally true.
