Emotional Intelligence is Important in Pro Sports


I'm really laughing at how so many pro-sports teams still tie their wagons and large sums of millions to young troubled men who clearly lack maturity and exhibit low or non-existent emotional intelligence.

These guys always fail eventually. some will have success in the short run, but eventually they cause more trouble than they are worth...especially when they are in a position of leadership on a team (like QB).

I wonder if he refuses to cheer for Dez Bryant, while instead laughing at the Cowboys for drafting him.

Not a fan of Dez. he will eventually blow up just like Moss/TO/Chad Ocho

its 10,000 times worse when its the QB...see Leaf, CAm, JaMarcus, Vick, VY, et al

Look, I tend to agree that Dez has high likelihood of going to shit, but mentioning these individuals as frick ups who didn't reach pretty substantial levels in football is a tad ridiculous.

Full potential? I'd argue and most would probably agree Moss could have been even more disgusting stat was, which is scary to think about. But he was one of the best to ever play.

A lot of the HS to NBA guys are all like that. A few of them seem well adjusted, but a lot of them are off. Like they don't know how to be actual people. They're all stuck in their teens.

How you look at it could be two don't belong.

I don't know if he meant "blow up" as in turn to shite or "blow up" to be really good.

Moss and TO are HoFamers. Not bad for emotionally immature.

I'm pretty sure he means Dez will be the next TO/Chad/Moss in terms of production.

Great book..I highly suggest it.

And not to knock the great work that Sam Nader does at LSU, but the last two Heisman winners(after this coming Saturday night), both wanted to attend and play for LSU..Johnny Football sent film..fact.

Emotional Intelligence is important in any field. If you're in a position of leadership, it makes sense that it would be magnified.
