Default OT: A Few seconds of panic

Hey guys,

I just got reading Stefan Fatsis' book "A Few seconds of panic" where he becomes a kicker and participates in the Denver Broncos training camp back in 2006.

If you read it, what were your guys impression of the book?

Personally, I enjoyed it.

I don't understand why you guys are so anal about sombody starting a current thread that they would like to talk about. It's like you are personally hurt by the fact there is a redundant thread. Did you ever think that someone would like to discuss the toppic with others in stead of being burried on the 16 page of an antiquated thread. You guys spend entrely too much time on the internet if it really bothers you that much.

Get a life!

Oh, and by the way I have read the book and enjoyed it very much. It was like hearing from the fly on the wall in dove valley...

Sometimes I wonder if people take themselves too serious when they post about people taking themselves too serious.

I mean do you react this way around your buddies when they bust your balls over stupid stuff in real life.

I pretty much think everyone is just giving the guy a hard time and no one is really that "angry" but that may be just me.

Seriously, man. First, you know I respect you. With that out of the way, I just have to say that I think you're taking yourself too serious about how he's taking himself too serious about you taking yourself too serious.

I don't mean to offend you at all. Honestly, that's not my intent - never will be. But you're kind of a douchebag.

Dazed and Confused. Matthew Mcconaughey is the one who says it.

Yeah, I'm wondering if we're talking about the same book. It seemed pretty fair. There were a few places he was critical. But even in those, he was respectful.

how did this guy get a chance to compete in training camp in the first place? the team didnt know he was gonna write a book, right?

edit: bet the broncos got a nice cut out of this. hes 46 years old, he was 43 during 2006 training camp and he has no prior football experience. broncos knew all about this...

I think you are being sarcastic but just in case. Yes I believe he sent requests to all the teams and the Broncos said yes. Shanahan and the team had the rights to view the book before it was published but didn't have the right to change anything.

Fatsis said they had no complaint with anything in the book.
