Guys play with partially torn labrums all the time. Hell Roethlisberger played with it...it really isnt that serious of an injury....but when the general fan hears "tear" most assume its worse than it really is. Im not denying his shoulder wasnt 100%.
Smith on the other hand- that's a smokescreen. However just from interactions with Knicks fans, they buy this type of stuff. For as negative and angry Jets fans are....Knicks fans are unbelievably optimistic for the most part.
JR is a POS so Im not defending him.
As to Melo, you just contradicted yourself on the bogus claim by bringing up Big Ben, who didnt get surgery. Thus you concede that lack of surgery doesnt mean the partial labrum diagnosis is bogus, correct?
