A former New York Yankees general manager fighting kidney failure said in an interview this week that he turned down his children's offers to donate one of their kidneys.

Bob Watson, 71, who helped construct the Yankees’ 1996 World Series winning team, told the New York Daily News that he was “ready for whatever happens now.”

“Both my kids offered to donate kidneys to me,” he told the newspaper. “And I told them both the same thing: ‘I’ve had a good life and I don’t want to take a kidney from young people who really need them and still have their whole lives ahead of them.' That would be very selfish on my part.”

Watson has battled health issues since he retired as a player in 1984, according to the paper. The former first baseman and outfielder has reportedly battled circulatory issues, hypertension and was successfully treated for prostate cancer.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
