I Just Became a London Fletcher Fan

Just read a great little Sporting News piece on London Fletcher. Besides playing more consecutive games than any NFL player, he just sounds like a good guy. How about this? No music with bad language on his IPOD, just clean versions and Christian music. There may be hope for our pro athletes with more great leaders like this.

  1. I know I’m a little late with my commentary here, but Mike, you make a beautiful statement regardless of the fact that Christian music was implied as the reason for your admiration or not. I wholeheartedly agree with you that a great leader needs great values. I find it hard to believe that anyone would find fault with this.

    I guess that should not surprise me. Thanks for reaffirming my impression.

    I had to pleasure of working with London Fletcher when he was with the Bills. I was just an intern at the time. When some of the other pros didn’t have the time for me London showed me the upmost respect. I have never forgotten his character. I am proud to have gotten the chance to work with him.

    Everyone has right to their opinion. I’m not a Christian ( a lapsed Catholic, I guess) but I see what is going on in the world and applaud those who try to make any positive change.

  5. I agree a great leader needs moral values. What I take issue with is the emphasis on Christianity (a bigoted view and one has no right to keep others from listening to music from other faiths or secular themes, for that matter) and the arbitrary moral absolute that expletives are “bad”. The only real virtue mentioned was the disapproval of racism which was not part of the original post.

  6. I think a great leader needs great values and this shows some of them. How can you find fault here with all that is wrong in pro sports? Clean is simply the opposite of explicit in ITunes. I don’t allow obscentity or racism in my facilities.

  7. So music with expletives is “unclean” and without Christian themes is uncharacteristic of a leader?
