Thread: Todd Heap

  1. #1

    Todd Heap



    I've heard talk that heap misses time because he won't take cortizone shots for pain due to his religion. I don't know if that's true or not, but if it is he should be docked pay for the games he is missing.

    I've also heard that. But because it's a religious issue, there is no way they will dock his pay. That will end up almost as bad as the Vikings coach docking Williamson's pay for going to his grandma's funeral, maybe worse....

    Don't expect that to happen any time soon
    Waiting for the next one!!!

    Since when do Mormons not take medicine? Can you give us a hint what your source is? I hope you don't mind me saying, until you provide a little more foundation for this tip, I'm inclined not to give it credence.

    His definitions and arguments were so clear in his own mind that he was unable to understand how any reasonable person could honestly differ with him.

    He is mormon, I think? Mormons don't have any restrictions on medications as far as I know.

    No, it's not true. Someone asked the morning show on WNST a week ago, and he said absolutely not.

    I am glad to hear that. Religion should not play a part in doing your job. If it does, maybe you need a new profession. I just think we are so desperate these days to win, we are picking on injured players unneccessarily. I am sure Todd Heap would play if he felt up to it. I think the man has integrity.

    Couldn't agree more. Losing really does bring the worst out in us fans. Do you think we would have still won this game if Todd was in?

    This topic has been addressed countless times.

    It's a rumor that has no validity to it whatsoever.

    Heap has said on numerous occasions that it's not true.

    Poe is absolutely right. And if Heap says he can't go, then I believe him. The punishment he takes going across the middle is enough to make anyone believe that when he's hurt, he truly is.

    LOL, if you have religious beliefs they should trump anything else in your life. We are talking about a game, it really isn't that big of a deal in the grand scheme.

    And as noted above, Mormons have no issue with legal medications.

    I really have no sources. I've just heard it around alot. I was sort of fishing to see if anyone else here has heard similar things. I'm glad it was somewhat clarified.

    I agree with Greg, about religious beliefs trumping a game, but I would hope if that were the case the team would be cautious about how much money they pay a guy that is going to take a beating, but wouldn't be willing to take all steps to come back from that beating.

    It's all a moot point, but it sure does seem to take heap a long time to come back from all of these injuries.

    His religious beliefs should be a consideration in his signing if it were true, but it isn't. I linked to a site regarding Mormons last week, they have no problems with legal medications, only illegal drugs and caffeine.
