I do think fans deserve more than “no comments” or “I don’t
knows.” Those simple answers have always stemmed from a genuine
concern that any statement, any opinion or detail, might be
distorted. I have a unique perspective. Many of you saw me after
that final home game, when the enormity of the moment hit me. I’m
not a robot. Neither are the other athletes who at times might
seem unapproachable. We all have emotions. We just need to be sure
our thoughts will come across the way we intend.
So I’m in the process of building a place where athletes have the
tools they need to share what they really think and feel. We want
to have a way to connect directly with our fans, with no filter.
