“Someone said, obviously I can’t swear while I’m talking to you guys, but there was some stuff said that I’m not too happy about. If I ever find out who it was I’ll deal with it in my own way. There’s guys on their team that chirp a lot and stuff, but I don’t know if it’s right when somebody’s face is halfway across the other side of their face. But it’s a tough game and people have to live with their actions.”
