Everyday choices leave lasting impressions

Conversely, former Crimson Tide star and current Oakland Raiders rookie Rolando McClain declared he is holding the media hostage with threats of not speaking publicly until fans sell out a home game.

“If the fans come out and we can sell out a damn game, I’ll talk to the media,” McClain told The Associated Press. “Until then . . . I need full fan support.”

I can understand McClain being spoiled by Alabama fans. There are still not enough seats at Bryant-Denny Stadium after it was expanded from 92,132 to 101,821. But for a millionaire to ask people to fork over $36 for the cheapest seat to a Raiders home game is insensitive.
