Yes you are right, respect cannot be bought but it can be earned. The good far outweighs the bad as far as Carragher is concerned.
After watching his interview on Sly yesterday you could see he was visibly distraught at what had happened. Hopefully he keeps his job as i really enjoy watching him and Ratboy.
Everyone makes mistakes, every single one of us. He will learn from this and come back stronger, of that i have no doubt.
Jamie Carragher - You'll Never Walk Alone
Boom. Perfectly said. I’m a cop in America, and I do often see the worst moments in people. However, MOST of the people I see who do unlawful things that get me called out aren’t bad people, but rather people who let a moment, life, circumstances, etc get the best of them. A lot of people I encounter overcome these low points and move past it.
Jamie had a low moment, no doubt about it. However, we all know what kind of guy he is, and a shitbag he is not. The moment got the best of him, simple as that. He was wrong and what he did was terrible, make no mistake about it. However, you all have fu**ed up, I know I certainly have. In this day and age a lot of screw ups are caught on camera, especially if you are in these guys shoes. Jamie has to be better than that, and I’m sure he knows it. He made a mistake, like so many of us have. We can beat him up over it, or we can treat him the way we would wanted to be treated after a major f**k up and that is to be listened to and thought of rationally. This one action can’t change who he is and always has been. I can’t do what I do everyday and think this way! I refuse to do so.
Live and learn and remember the words we sing each week.
