Looks like Steve Gleason would have appreciated your help in a different way
quote:

Regarding the DJ skit in Atlanta yesterday. I would like to thank the public for their support. 'Defend Team Gleason' now has been officially redefined. Additionally, the DJs have provided genuine apology. Received and accepted. We have all made mistakes in this life. How we learn from our mistakes is the measure of who we are.

I think everyone can learn from this event. Its clear to me that, on a national & global scale, ALS is not understood, which is part of why its under funded and largely ignored. In the past 36 hours lots of people have been talking. Lets talk about this... There are zero treatments for ALS. If you take any action as a result of this event, I prefer it to be action to end ALS. See what we are doing to change that @ teamgleason.org.

How am I supposed to feign outrage over something like ALS awareness? I can't even get someone fired over it.

Steve Gleason continuing to be a ridiculously classy individual when he has every right not to.

As someone pointed out on the SB yesterday, those clowns in ATL probably will be a net positive for Gleason and ALS because their tasteless skit put both Gleason and ALS all over the news.

I'm not justifying what they did. It was disgusting and horrible, but at least some positives will likely come of it.

But Steve, it's so much easier to get upset and angry about something than to use that energy to support something and do actual good. Give us something to rally against and we're all over it, give us something to support and we'll forget about it after a couple minutes.

This I can agree with you on. Would you expect any less?

me either. he's turning a negative situation into something that fuels the drive for awareness of ALS. continuing to be a hero to those in suffering.

Look, I'm never going to call/email and ask for someone to get fired. I may (didn't yesterday) email someone's boss letting them know of their behavior in the public domain.

But they should have been fired. And ALS should receive more awareness/support. The two are mutually exclusive.

absolutely not. the real measure of a man's character IMO is how he chooses to live when handed a steaming pile of shite in life. he just continues to set a wonderful example for those thinking they can't make a difference because of their disease.

trying to get them fired does absolutely nothing to support the cause, in fact, it just takes away from it.
