How many people would have woken up and apologized over the years to Ali if it was obligatory?

How much would it have inconvenienced Ali if everyone who dreamed of beating him apologized?

    Fair points. Like the Rolling Stones, every next tour is their last farewell tour but it isn’t really and they’re not apologising for it. You’ve firmly implanted an elephant in my mind now - I’ve made it pink and added wings to it if that’s okay. Now I can’t remember what this thread was about.

    Is this a troll thread?

    Ali was just being Ali talking trash

    The apologies logged in at 2 or 3 AM, with no formal ID required, would certainly be suspect.

    You ask that like it's somehow out of the ordinary for the entire world to be mailing Ali apology letters about imaginary fights.

    Nah, just a fun, shoot the breeze thread.

    Haha. Get Rudy G. and his team on to that. He’d be dyeing to investigate <groan>.

    I can think of MANY things I’ve dreamt about that I should apologize For. But beating Ali isn’t one of them

    I for one take these threads very seriously.

    Though, I must admit I was a tad disappointed that a transparent poll wasn’t somehow worked into this thread.

    Not that ALL your prior, creative and excellent work hasn’t been appreciated, but you don’t seem to care as much as you used to CT. Maybe it’s just me, I dunno, I’m feeling a bit vulnerable today.

    Lest I’ve offended, my apology is already in the mail, signed @djanders. Sorry brother Djand, I don’t like signing my name to anything and everyone here already knows you’re a good soul.

    You raise a good point. A poll is absolutely necessary.
