This was an actual letter to the editor published in the Courier Journal today. I think we can all agree after reading this that Dr. Friedland would be about the worst person to hang out with imaginable.

UPDATE: Here is a picture of the good doctor

    The Doc was kind of eloquent in a bizarre sort of way.

    It’s just sports and all in fun so lighten up there Doc.

    Life isn’t a battle? Wrong. If you don’t fight for things you will ultimately lose. I would think a doctor would have a better sense of hard work and dedication to something, which was clearly the spirit of the posters. What an overly sensitive moron this doctor must be.

    Even doctors can be idiots. There are several definitions of the word ‘attack’ to which he turns a blind eye.

    The best part is the ‘coach can urge his over-sized players to attack’…..As though the opponents are weak and fragile.

    I’m pretty sure when they made that billboard they were going with this definition: “criticize somebody or something: to subject somebody or something to strong or vehement criticism”

    You know Dr. Friedlander, words influence our conscious and unconscious life in powerful ways. Calling our players “over-sized” could lead to eating disorders.

    So, the doctor is worried about the subliminal messages we send to the public in our billboard, and yet he is a doctor with the word “Fried” in his last name? Glass houses doc…glass houses. Go CATS…ATTACK (whiny loserville doctors) EVERYDAY!

    You are assuming this guy is a UofL fan simply because he is from Louisville? I’m sure this guy has no interests in sports other than synchronized swimming and competitive ballroom dance.

    18, good observation. If chemo starts being compassionate to cancer cells instead of attacking them, society definitely won’t be better off.

    I suspect that Dr. Friedland repeatedly had to turn his lunch money over to the high school bully. That bully was probably a football team member. Hense the intense trauma created by a simply sports billboard. Furthermore, Dr. Bob was almost certainly sucking his thumb when he penned the letter, longing for the days when mama would protect and feed him.

    I have to disagree with my counterpart. Life is a battle. Coming from a Dr. I am surprised he expressed himself like this. Truly surprising. Wait, he’s a UL fan. All ok! All is good on his side I guess. Go Big Blue!

    wonder if he’s a liberal democrat? Wonder if he supports the racist, violent responses of the left concerning the Zimmerman verdict? I wonder if he supports the violence of the occupy movement, that goes unreported by our mainstream media? I wonder if he’s pro-abortion? I hope the answer to each of these is no…… (i wonder if this gets past the censorship on KSR here?)

    Gonna call his office and describe how his life isn’t a battle line is bullshit. This is why I hate upper class people who flaunt. Just because they don’t have to worry about bills doesn’t mean the rest of don’t. Football players should attack their goals everyday just as the rest of should. Don’t see how he thinks Coach Stoops and the marketing department are inciting violent. Obviously this man got “attacked” quite a bit in school.

    Had this guy as a professor in med school. He has every student read one of his manuscripts and the key word in it is “fierce.” He asks us the next day, what the key word in the manuscript was. The implication is to be fierce about advancing our education. How he can have us use an aggressive word in an otherwise benign phrase and then turn around and chastise Stoops for using an aggressive word for an otherwise benign activity is hypocrisy at its finest, Louisville fan or not.

    Has the good doctor picked on Horace for “carpe diem”? Dictionary.com defines seize as “to take hold of suddenly or forcibly; grasp: to seize a weapon.”

    Shouldn’t Horace have spared us this aggressive language, or is the doctor unhappy with a 2,200 year old philosophy of life?

    He’d prefer his messages be more positive….like u of L’s tenants:

    No guns.
    Dont rape women.
    Dont harass women.
    Hold the door for people.
    Say please and than you
    Dont rape people
    No guns (or real sharp knives)

    Its tough guys….I get it. But lets try not to do either of those things the next few months.

    I’m sure Coach String isn’t asking his players to show compassion to their opponents either. If so, there would be no football, no competition. Let’s just suit these boys in bubbles and give them all participation trophies just for showing up.

    Dear hateful dullards and inane twits of the BBN, the author of the letter makes a good point. Life is not a battle. Of course if you have a low level of consciousness, as so many of you do, that statement won’t make a lot of sense. I simply hope one day your perspectives will broaden enough to see the sense in the doctor’s letter.

    If you think that little of your fellow Cats fans, then why don’t you just go be a UL fan? What am I talking about though, I’m sure you are already. And no, the doctor’s letter doesn’t make any good points. It’s pathetic, passive aggressive, and misses the entire point of the billboards due to the obvious Cardinal coloring of his glasses. I can see from your post that you’re a weak, overly sensitive creature just like the doctor. Why don’t you just go suck him off then and leave the rest of BBN alone?

    He is correct. Billboards pollute public space. Some of the most livable cities in the U.S. have banned them. They can superimpose their message over our current thoughts. If a person just left the meditative cushion, for example, and was practicing tonglen – breathing in aggression and out compassion, such a billboard would be an unwanted intrusion. However, one zen master was known to travel with his nemesis, just to be reminded to stay mindful, so perhaps the Dr. could look at the billboard as a trigger to return to his breath. I am glad he had the courage to speak up, in Lexington, KY.

    I find it extremely funny that he uses the literal definition of attack throughout his whole, pitiful little letter (seriously, who writes letters to the editors of papers these days? people like this guy, I guess) but then at the end makes us all aware that he gets it’s a metaphor. You can’t have it both ways, doc. Either you’re so stupid that you literally think the billboards are a call to violence, or you get that it’s a metaphor. Either way, he fails on pretty much every level with his ridiculous crap.

    7:57 pm July 26, 2013 Permalink

    hey…without even bothering to read any of the other comments yet…and I will…but this much I can tell you from the get go…liberal socialist…if not worse…and these ARE the people educating our kids these days as well…and not only that, but- at the same time- filling their heads with the idea that the rest of us are nothing more than a bunch of uneducated “clinging to our guns and religion” rubes…for those of you who do not know what a “rube” is, it is basically an uneducated hick…you young folks had better wake up and smell the coffee and realize that you have been taught revisionist history…systematically poisoned to believe that Capitalism is “bad”…and God only knows what else…and that this has all been done very much on purpose and with a specific agenda in mind…hell, just what I am saying here is going to cause a lot of folks veins in their head to bulge…if not pop! And these are the “tolerant” ones? Yes. They are tolerant. As long as you agree with them 100% of the time, they love you. But have an opposing view or opinion? You best watch your back. And I am D O N E DONE walking around on eggshells to accommodate their idea of what is “politically correct”…at some point, those of whose who know better are either going to have to stand and fight for what’s right…oooh…I should not have said the word “fight”! OMG! I am sending the “wrong message”! What I mean by that is to stand up and speak out for what we believe in…ok? Ya know Obama…Mr. “reach across the aisle” and “work together”…lol…what a joke…when he got elected the 1st time…said stuff about if we want to show up for a knife fight, then he’s bringing a gun…and also…when he was 1st elected…said that the “rest of us”…meaning us who are Republican and Conservative…we could “go along for the ride” if we want…but we would have to sit on the back of the bus…well I- for one- Mr President…am not about to sit on the “back of the bus” anymore than Rosa Parks should have…and did not…and btw…for all of you “educated” folk…it was Republicans that fought for and pushed for Civil Rights…and the Democrats who fought it…and if you’ve been taught different? Then you were lied to about that as well…along with everything else…so lay down your Blind Faith…and seek the truth…I could go all night…but I won’t…but I could…easily…but let me wrap THIS up with THIS…the game of football is already under Liberal attack folks…and those of us who are paying any attention at all, such as myself? I don’t believe that football as we know it will even still exist as a sport in America within the next 20-25 years…it’s too violent…too inhumane…too many rich white folks getting richer on the backs (and the multiple concussions) of the black man…well, someone please ask Randall Cobb if he wants for football to be banned and to give up his multi-million dollar contract with the Packers…and all his ednorsement monies as well…so he can go get a “real, regular job” and live half-assed like the rest of us…I am telling you people…you better wake up…and stop allowing these liberal “elites” (self-proclaimed I might add) tell the rest of us how to live our lives…whether it be not being able to purchase any larger than a 16 Oz soft drink in NYC under Mayor Bloomberg’s RULE…the First Lady’s attack on the Big Mac…stay out of my damn stomach and out of my kitchen and don’t tell me what I can and cannot eat thank you very much…I am telling you…all you leftist Obama supporters had better wake up…what’s that? Huh? What? Oh, so it’s fine because you agree with everything Obama is doing, huh? Are YOU really THAT naive? Let me tell you folks…it does not give me one ounce of pleasure in knowing that in the near future everyone will regret all of this…I just want to stop it from happening…before it is too late…I will end with this…all of you who believe that America is some “bad” place that was “unjustly founded”…and that Capitalism “sucks” and that “collectivism” (the new word apparently for Socialism these days) is “good”? Just ask yourself this one question. If that all is so…then how on earth did America become the most prosperous and free nation in the history of planet earth??? With everyone else around the world desperately trying to come here? And how is that every Socialist/Marxist/Communist nation on earth has failed miserably? You leftists talk about the so-called “one percent”? at least we have a middle class…for now…but if we keep going down this present road? The real one percent will be the “ruling class”…the government…the President, the Senators, the Congressman…and the rest of us? We will be come the majority underclass as exists in every socialist/marxist/communist nation on earth…at least check into it folks…seriously…do not wait until you wake up one day and the government both owns you and rules you…you will regret it very badly…but it will then be too late…and you have my word on that…and THIS folks is why Matt wants to expand KSR and have other forums…such as a political forum…to keep this sort of stuff out of the sports area…as it should be…and if this post lasts more than ten minutes before Matt, Drew, or Tyler remove it I will be in shock. If you do remove it tho guys and gals…do it bvecause of the length…and not because of the message…please…or has Obama outlawed Free Speech yet? I know he is working on it…just wondering…

    this guy probably got beat up on the playground very frequently probably even as recently as last week. What a *&^#tard. It’s football jack and in case you were wondering, Yes Alabama probably mentally views their task as war requiring an aggressive mentality. But hey maybe UK should start a non contact debate team opening and closing each match by joining hands and singing koombaya. Mitch could even spearhead a statewide effort to reappropriate Commonwealth for this USE ONLY but move ahead with the $160 million renovation. Yep I’d get season tickets to that.

    Jen, after insulting lots of people within your own fan base you’re now resorting to making outlandish claims about how tough you are? Jesus, call it a f*cking day. If you genuinely believe that this man makes a valid point you’re either A) A Louisville fan troll or B) an incredibly soft person who’s lead an amazingly sheltered existence. Along with option B, I think it’s safe to assume that if you think life isn’t a battle you’ve never actually accomplished anything on your own, because anything worth accomplishing is worth fighting for (metaphorically, I don’t necessarily mean that literally, since you and the doctor seem confused on that distinction). So, which one is it? Are you option A or B?

    Another liberal Dr. Spock everyone gets a trophy BS. This thinking is why kids are fat, lazy, entitled cry babies. It’s always funny to watch these people when they get hit upside the head with reality.

    Not that everyone doesn’t know this already; if UL takes Dyer, just shows UL hypocrisy. If it’s predictable it’s preventable; this kid can’t stay out of trouble, it’s in his blood. I hope UL does take Dyer, that way we can laugh at them when it inevitably blows up in their faces.

    I agree with the doctor on this one. It takes an enlightened mind to think that way. Unfortunately 90% of BBN are close-minded, hate-filled, ignorant, racist, bigoted, wingnut Cons. As I sit here and watch the replay of “Hatfields and McCoys” on History Channel I see we haven’t progressed much in the last 150 years.

    On the one hand you talk about what an enlightened mind you and the doctor must have, touting the advantages of civility. You then rip on 90% of the fans of the team you supposedly support as being hate filled bigots. Your entire post was the definition of bigotry, claiming everyone else is a fool for not agreeing with you (and not actually bringing any of your own, original thoughts to the table). Does the word hypocrite mean anything to you?

    Only the fair-minded C-J would run an anti-UK letter from a UL Professor and not identify him as such. Ass does neurological research on the effects of aging and apparently doesn’t have to go far to find subjects. Whoops, is that an attack?

    The next billboard UK puts out for the football team in Louisville should read

    “Kindly suggest every day that all your problems, obstacles, and competitors remove themselves from your path. Meanwhile, explain to them that you understand their plight and sympathize, and feel horrible about even attempting to defeat them”

    Because, you know, that isn’t at all ridiculous…

    First, let me state that I bleed blue. Second, I have played and watched and love basketball and football.

    That said.. some of the good docs from UofL Neurosurgery saved my life a few years ago when I was suffering from a subdural hematoma (bleeding in the skull) after taking a blow to the head. When I say suffering, I mean I was unable to sleep, eat, or even think clearly for 3 days, the pain was so intense — all I could think about was how much pain I was in.

    Now I realize Neurosurgery and Neurology are different departments, but understand this. These are not just teachers.. these are doctors that see patients and treat patients, and these doctors see people suffering from brain injuries every day, several times a day. Some of them are without question injuries from football and other sports. While I personally think his letter is silly, maybe we could all stop and realize that people do get hurt — some in a life altering way — while playing contact sports and that these doctors and their associates are the ones that heal and rehab them. Or in some cases, tell patients that they’ll never have use of their arm again. Or tell families they will taking care of vegetables for the rest of their lives.

    Call me whatever you want, but after having to tell a parent that their child is severely brain damaged a few times, I might write a silly letter too.

    And, I mean no offense to KSR because I love this site.. but “outing” a doctor by posting his pic on the site is pretty f***ing low, IMO.

    I understand your sentiment, and thank you for explaining your thoughts on the matter rather than simply saying “I’m with the Doctor, if you aren’t you’re really stupid!!!!!!!!!”. However, I and many others feel that the guy is blowing the whole thing out of proportion. It’s an ad for a football team/season for God sake. If something that trivial really has such an effect on the doctor’s day, perhaps he should take up a hobby or something, because his mind is too free to wander in his off time.

    Further, I would suggest that a doctor should encourage his patients to try their best to fight/attack/whatever any illness or malady they may incur. The whole slogan “attack every day” seems more like an inspirational “seize the day” kind of thing to me, which is why I find the complaint from Dr. Friedland so bizarre and pointless.

    Next Billboard – As I said, I thought the letter was silly. And personally, I like the billboards. The billboards are clearly trying to pump the fans, not encourage players to hurt one another. And I didn’t like that the doc took a pot shot at UK and ignored the fact that UofL is just as guilty.. I mean just the mantra “L1C4” should be an insult to anyone with a 3rd grade education, much less a degree in medicine. But, UofL students do need to work on their letters and numbers, so…

    Anyway, I just feel a personal obligation to doctors, as I’ve been a patient and seen the bad shape some of their patients are in. All I’m saying is, if anyone has a right to express their feelings on violence in sports, it’s the guy who’s job it is to help those who were unlucky enough to get hurt. Even though I personally disagree with him.

    since the good dr is so focused on compassion im sure he refuses the crazy money doctors make off the illness of others. the number one cause of personal bancruptcies r medical bills. im sure the compassionate dr is working diligently to make sure his pay is more in line with others care givers like firefighters, paramedics and nurses

    After finally reading all the comments (whew)… I have come to this decision. UL fans/trolls, you stink. Like the bad B.O. you play against in a game and it screws up your game. Eff you, I personally hate you. This fair doctor/anyone else who wants to analyze an “attack evey day” philosophy as barbaric and not a basic principle of life would have darwinized themselves out of existence 50 years ago. Peraonally I love the fact that our new coaching staff wants to inspire us as a fanbase and in ou
