    exactly where is your threshhold for class...what requirement satisfies your definition of it.

    I happen to think that different deeds done different ways can still show class.

    May I remind you there is a difference between someone who is classy and a gesture that is classy.

    I personally do not know Shariff Floyd, but I do know he should be commended and told when one of his behaviors, which may I once again remind you is a desired behavior, is "classy". In hopes that Mr. Floyd will continue to do such behaviors and can hopefully one day reach the seemingly "unreachable" threshold of Barrett Jones and be referred to as a classy person!

    I totally agree. But the bar should be pretty high before you bestow the term class upon anyone. Its a case by case situation. Barrett jones is there, he gets to wear the term class. The florida player is being polite and nothing more.imo

    My friend rizolltizide is a small primate, so his bar is pretty low (sorry, riz, but it's the truth, ya' know). He gets a pass on this one.

    Just FYI, next time someone bets you and you think you are going to win the bet, accept the bet and allow them to lose before you tell them that they lost...

    Seems classy to me; you can even see quotes of Coach Bryant telling incoming freshmen to write letters to family, etc. He said his first thing was to teach class, and then winning would come. To me this follows in that mode.
