LT said no, so there you go. Tomlinson had no obligation to do so, but he has class and it was the right thing to do. They aren't even in the same town, or coast, and play on opposite sides of the ball for that matter and one of them isn't even playing anymore. I think LT should have broken his legs in a cocaine induced beating, but that's all it would've taken for Yankee fans to be ok with it.
Thats not the same thing at all. It would be similar if Wagner just decided to use the song now. But he's been using it for 10 years. And then it still wouldn't be the same, because if anyone he should ask Metallica, they have much more claim over the song than Rivera.

End of story.
LOL...until the next Mike and the Mad Dog show. Although with Torre's inept managing today, they may have a new target to beat up on fo the next day or two.
If I was a Mets fan I'd start calling Wagner 'Mo' just to see how many Yankees fans heads I could get to explode. Rivera said that it doesn't bother him at all that Wagner uses the song, and furthermore...that he doesn't even like the song. Can we all move on now?
