Ok this thread goes out to the player who is Mr. Nice Guy...

A player who is always willing to do something for Charity, doing something special for fans, or something special for children

Im recommending Mr. JJ Watt.

Mr. JJ Watt saw a video of a little girl who is 6years old crying that she could never have a chance to marry JJ Watt becuase she is too young lol

JJ Watt saw that video on the internet, got on his twitter, and tried to get in contact with the little girl. Well after 2 days JJ found out who the girl was. Well I take it his ppl called the girls parents and they arranged for a little meeting. During this little meeting JJ Watt got down on to one knee and proposed to the little girl with a fake/candy ring. Gave her flowers, and gave her a jersey and she was Watt's pretend wire for the day

http://network.yardbarker.com/nfl/article_external/jj_watt_proposes_to_6_year_old_superfan_photo/12798199?linksrc=home_vv_image_12798199

My Thoughts of it...

Watt is an amazing person to do something that special for that little girl. He took the time out of his life to change that little girls life. she will never ever forget that event.


what other players have amazing stories like this

yeah i think he's great too...

but define "took time out of his life"


because i'm about 90% sure that, athletes lives consist of... working out, and doing nothing. then getting ready for next season.

well he didnt have to go do something like that. I know its the offseason for him but he prolly does other things in his life going on. just spent the whole season away from the family and he likes to go home to Wisconsin and spend time with his family but he sees something like this and goes sees this little girl. We can assume the girl just works out and does nothing

I'm always when someone takes time to do something nice for others no matter if they had something important to do or not. Isn't it almost more impressive if someone uses their free time to do something nice then doing it when they should be working/doing something they don't like doing (i.e. getting out of something)?

JJ Watt is a stand up dude. What a great story.

From Jeff Darlington's Twitter:

"Just watched Eli Manning discreetly give several hotel workers at Pro Bowl each $100 bills, calling them by their first names. That's class."

I know Jay Cutler gets a lot of flack but he's a decent enough guy. I worked a charity event that he put together for a local children's hospital a couple of years ago (For kids with diabetes). It was held outside and it started pouring rain. Even under the tent we were getting drenched. Jay still talked to all the kids, took pictures with each kid and spent time talking to all of them after his part of the event was done. Then he took a picture with all the staffers at the end.

Not a single compliant or attempt to ditch out early. Even some volunteer staffers left early because of the conditions. He was great with the kids, which some might find hard to believe considering how grumpy he comes across sometimes in the media...

I know some or many people have a negative view of James Harrison but he created The James Harrison Family Foundation. It's a non-profit organization that helps disabled children and their families. Every year his foundation has a Brunch with Santa for the kids where they raise money.

Troy Polamalu has the Troy and Theodora Polamalu Foundation which helps the Pittsburgh Children Hospital and also provides humanitarian aid to American Somoa. Troy and his wife is also very active with veteran causes and the Pittsburgh VA hospital.

I don't know if they do charity or anything like that but Donald Driver and Greg Jennings both come off as nice stand up guys. In fact, all of GBs receivers come off as nice guys.

Check out the first minute or so of this video. Randy Moss still hangs out with her, true class! Took a pic late last year.

What he did was awesome...

but I would bet there are charities set up and things done like what Joe did by the majority of players in the league it is a shame it goes unnoticed.

Especially when all we hear in the news is the negative stories concerning football players.

I like the mention of Torrey Smith. I never knew of his story until, sadly, his brother died. He has my utmost respect.

Not that often, he's too busy watching game tape and preparing for next season.
