Thread: Marcus Gilbert AWOL and not rehabbing his injury?

  1. #11
    If only he had DeCastro's temperament...

    ...or even if we could just get him to land on opponents, rather than teammates...

    "Reunite on Ice" might be more fitting while he's on the shelf might be fitting. And then once he's back in the mix, we can just call him Reunite.

    Nah, I like Reunite too much to associate it with him.

    Flip, I don't think there's any denying his talent, it's his heart that's lacking....

    He may be hitting a bit of a sophomore jinx but he was pretty solid last season as a rookie. I haven't given up hope that he can develop into a solid player.

    I wonder if he cried after injuring DeCastro like DiCaprio cried after killing the grasshopper?

    As Marcus' waistline continues to grow as big as big as Gilbert and Arnie's mother, instead of asking "What's Eating Gilbert Grape?" we can asking "What's Gilbert Grape Eating?" instead.

    Chardonnay has talent but he doesn't have a mean streak. I said the guy rarely finishes games and someone on here disagreed. Not sure who it was but since that first discussion I think Chardonnay hasn't finished 75% of the games he has started.

    The write up was spot on... he isn't rehabbing he is hiding.

    The kid is softer than a movement after X-Lax...
