So you think his actions are justified?
I never wished any harm on the kid, but you can't deny that he's acting like a spoiled child. I'm sorry if I offended him, but thats my opinion and I'm sticking to it.
I am sure as a friend the players wouldn't want them back. However after reading some of the commits correspondence with him, it seems as though some of them do not care for the way he ha been talking about Michigan. Fir onstage after e talked trash about Michigan, Taco Charlton said "you can't make tweets like this and then get mad when Michigan fans say stuff"
I do wonder what his actions would have been if grown men had not attacked him and his character over the internet.
You're a child yourself, I wouldn't expect anything less from you.
For the 2 or 3 people that have said "hurtful" things about him there have been 100's of people that told him good luck, and sent him positive messages after his father passed earlier this year.
Then he went on to bash UM, and name MSU and ohio his leaders. Sorry, but that's not going to sit well.
To pappy121 and his family.

The kid is screwing up, no question. Lets just admit that, and leave him alone. I think he realizes he made a mistake, too late to fix it, and is reacting as 18 year olds are wont to do. I frankly wish him the best, and don't give a damn what he says, smack or not.
Here's an idea .. lets lock this thread ?!!?!??
What's pissing me off is people coming into threads, in which the title says "David Dawson".... and proceed to complain about people talking about *gasp David Dawson.
People can post about his recruitment if they want to. He was a one time UM commit who is bashing the program and now has ohio and MSU in the lead. It's a recruiting website. If you don't want to read it, ,don't open the thread. Honestly how is this such a difficult concept to grasp?
Nobody here is hoping for anything bad to happen to him, nobody is saying anything horrible about him. EDIT: Purse comment was unnecessary.

So let me get this straight. You think it's perfectly acceptable for you to comment (negatively FWIW) on the actions and public comments made by David Dawson, but it pisses you off when someone effectively does the exact same thing to you? Got it. You may now return to your temper tantrum.
How about you grow up? You seem like you're suffering from battered wife syndrome. He's 17. (18?) He's immature. That's fine. Let him talk all he wants. Who do you think looks bad at the end of the day? Here's a hint .. it's not Michigan. It's him. He's stock is falling before your eyes. This will be a hard lesson for him to learn.
He's no longer a Michigan recruit. PERIOD. Let it go. How about YOU take your purse and head to Tbb and talk about it there? Cause I'm pretty sure most people are tired of you jumping all over the kid because he's made some questionable decisions in the last few weeks. Truthfully .. it's not much different than the Treadwell threads that were going up every other hour. Do we all want Treads? Of course. But a thread every other hour on the hour gets stale and old.
Fact is .. Dawson doesn't owe YOU or ME or ANYONE ANYTHING. It's America. Let him say whatever the hell he wants. Karma's a b*tch. He'll regret this decision in the future .. you and I both know it. Let him live.
I'm not trying to go off on you or anybody bro .. I promise. I just sit back here .. and take a look at our incoming class (without the likes of Dawson and Treadwell (hopefully that changes) and McQuay (this too) and I cant help but not give a damn about Dawson making the bad decision that he has. I know you're bothered by his decision .. but here you go.. this'll make you feel a lot better ...
So. You're saying it's America, let him say what he wants, but at the same time you want to lock a thread and stop people from talking about something? You realize how hypocritical that is right?
Grow up? Really? The worst I have said is that he sounds immature and angry. That is called "jumping all over him". What universe do you live in?
If you don' care about it fine... don't post about it. I've said before that I think he was either 4th or 5th among our incoming OL so it's not that big of a loss. If by "bothers me" you mean amuses me. Then yes I guess I'm bothered. I find it funny that he has done a complete 180 and is trashing a program that was good to him.
Also there wouldn't have been a new thread if an older one wasn't locked. I don't get people like you. You're complaining about it being stale and old, but nobody forced you to open the thread in the first place. You're like the guy who says he doesn't drink, but you're spotted at the bar every day. Suuure.
I don't think I've bashed Dawson. I've tempered what comments I have made about him by saying something to the effect of "if the stories are true..." I will however agree with Clarkw267 that if you don't want to hear about Dawson, don't visit this very clearly titled thread. I don't believe that we should be enforcing "classiness" by censorship. Disagree all ya like. I just don't see the need to shut this thread down. I haven't seen anything over the top here.
Actually I came to a thread about David Dawson, and said David Dawson's comments which were posted here, made him sound angry and immature.
What I said pisses me off, is people that open a thread, then complain for the thread to be locked. What is the purpose in that?
No. You said you were pissed off that people were coming into a thread on a public message board, where you posted comments critical of David Dawson, to criticize you and your comments. And then you threw some derogatory barbs at them about going shopping. You are exhibiting the same immaturity that you are claiming you see in David Dawson when he lashes out against people who are attacking him on twitter. If you expect him to act as a mature adult, the least you can do is hold yourself to the same standard.

Show me my critical comments. Please, I'd like to see them. If immature and angry is critical then the nation we live in is worse than I thought.
And you or whoever else can criticize me all you want. It won't affect me one bit.
I guess if you want to come into threads and complain about the topic (which was clearly stated in the title) being discussed then go ahead.
His actions might have been different, but his thoughts about Michigan would probably be the same. The people attacking him just gave him reason to say those thoughts.
