    so here is my morning dump….
    a female friend of mine ran into RM yesterday at walmart, she was stoked and started asking him a bunch of questions. And just so were clear she really really likes Mathews. Well , as she was asking questions every answer she received from the very first question he began to stroke his own ego in a big way. long story short she went to being a huge fan of his to not at all, she told me he was extremely arrogant and full of himself. when she first saw him she pulled her phone out and wanted to take a photo with him like any fan would, but after the brief strokes of ego she decided she was cool off him and didnt want to even ask him for a photo, her thinking was why stroke his ego even more. she was extremely disappointed and hit me up to fill me in. i was rather shocked. i never met the dude or ran into on a random note so i dont know what the guy is like. i live by chargers park and run into players a lot. they all seem humble. but hearing this make me think, is this why RM gets hurt all the time, is he creating his own bad Karma by is attitude, another thing that tripped me out was this year hearing not to long ago our RM just bought his mom a house. i hope it was the second house he bought for her cuz being in the league this long and knowing he and is mom struggled and they had to sleep in a car at some points as RM was growing up and him just getting around to taking car of his mom disturbs me. they guy has talent and its undeniable but why oh why in my circle of friends and people i know that work where these players shop tell me our RM is a egotistical worried about himself dick. And we wonder why he always gets hurt. Its disturbing. Im not quick to judge anybody but what im hearing on the streets just keeps coming my way.
    things that make me say Hmmmm!!!
    Sorry Ernie i had to get this off my chest. lol

      Wow who would of thought RM24 is and Ego-maniac… SMH

      Just hope he produces and stays professional on the field, but still that change my whole perception of RM…KSMH

    • arnie

      I hope he had his reasons, but the bottom line is this, you should always be kind, humble and respectful to fans. Or Stories like ^this^ get told about you.
