      Hey Mark,

      I don't think I did not show respect to Greg. I told what I saw and
      told I don't like what I saw. I think to have no respect is more
      like when you speak from another one in his back, like private e-
      mail or in person to another people except the guy then you speak
      about. Greg is a legend, a very good players and everyone respect
      him for is good career. You can send to him anything I wrote I have
      no problem and we can discuss it anytimes.
