Default Re: Ben going golfing

I agree Ben needs to have a three ring circus press conference before training camp to get out of the way all the issues relating to the wreck.

Assuming his face heals up enough that his appearance will not frighten small children, he can do an on camera apology and then respond to repeated questions which will consist of variations on: are you sorry; don't you agree you were stupid; how is the healing; and are you ready to get hit in the face again?

Once that is done, he can deflect all questions relating to the wreck at camp with responses such as "I've discussed that" and "It's time to talk about football now."

In an effort to avoid a complete circus atmosphere at camp that will focus on the wreck and constitute a dreaded "distraction" I bet we get such a press conference the week before training camp.

Glad to hear Ben is up and about. That's all that really matters at this point.

The guy who did the face transplant surgery in France is stuck at customs. And Ben's no Paris Hilton.

Good to hear he's recovering well. Would he be able to take a tackle by a caddie well though?

If Ben can swing a driver, it is a good sign. If Ben can show his face there already, he must look just about as good as he will.

Exactly what I was gone say...

I would just like to hear him say anything to anyone at all. We have heard from him on a daily basis, read about him on a daily basis, and now nothing for way too long it does not feel right to me.
