    I think he is a good business man. I think he is smart. I think he is a jerk. I think he's egotistical. I think he is one those people who thinks money and his ego give him immunity from the norms the rest of the world must follow. I think he also thinks his ego and success make him more qualified in his opinions than anyone else. I think he is not unlike many successful people (primarily men, but not exclusively so) who have such a high opinion of themselves, they can't be saved from themselves.

    I’m a hard worker. Don’t have many talents. I’m sure I’ve spent well over 2M in my life.

    I’d say he and Lavar Ball are intellectually similar.

    To answer your question though I grew up entitled and took life for granted. I always knew I’d be able to get what I’d need to live the lifestyle I want. What I didn’t know is how many stupid people there are in this world. I used to think everyone was smart. WRONG. I drank so much beer, smoked so much weed and had so much unprotected sex in college that I ruined any chance to make my millions. If I had the focus and discipline of Papa John there’s no doubt in my mind that I’d be on ESPN right now talking smack about LeBron not being better than Kobe and chilling with 7 figures in my bank account. But I was irresponsible in college so instead I’ll just have to make do with my current job that pays me good money with great benefits and make sure these bills get paid in between these 3 vacations and various weekend outings with my true friends and family. I mean, I may not be the genius that y’all claim Papa John to be but my life doesn’t suck by any means.
    Regarding the question in bold above: that God loves you. I came to the place in my life where I thought I was going to lose everything I had worked for, career, people's opinion of me, everything. It wasn't even as a consequence of my actions. But I was pretty certain I was going down the tubes for a season. But I knew two things... my wife loved me and God loved me and that was enough. So I'm with you there, PP92.

    That would be "nowhere and never" if you are not African-American.

    This is true of everyone. Even Solomon, as wise as he was, had his kingdom divided basically over power and sex. This is one lesson that the whole sexual harassment thing in Hollywood has exposed in recent times. It has always existed. The casting couch is a well-known part of Hollywood. Success strokes the ego and then you're one step from falling.

    This pretty much nails my thoughts on him.

    In 1999 Papa John was sued by Lesli Workman for sexual harassment. He countersued claiming that she was trying to extort money from him. The suit was dismissed. No word of a settlement.

    Sounds like a guy who doesn't like to take responsibility for his actions. The bad ones, anyway.

    Is Josh Hader in jeopardy of losing his contract now? It appears he made more than one mistake in the past?

    It's already been reported he won't be fined/suspended by either the Brewers or MLB.

    Gotta love how nothing happens to Hader and yet Colin Kaepernick was blackballed.

    They both did something stupid and are now paying dearly for it.
