Yeah, but how long is that an excuse for? Hopefully the negative feedback will drive change in his behavior. However, I do think we expect WAYYYY too much out of the twenty-year old males populating our favorite sports teams.
I love my neighborhood. Right downtown, but we have this big ass nature preserve across the street from us, so no neighbors across the street peering in. We're all really tight and look out for each other, without being all up in each other's stuff. It's great. I know everyone's name for a block each way.
We lost a ton of starters (eleven guys drafted) - our entire defensive line, a linebacker, our best corner, our quarterback, our best receiver, etc... Don't have a great feeling. In two years we'll be greatm not so sure about this year.
