Out of that entire piece, the title of the article is "Tyrann Mathieu wanted to skip the national championship game"....
That is a great example of part of what is wrong with this society. Out of all the intense, meaning filled, and introspective reporting, they pull out one insignificant aspect, and twist it to sensationalize.
It worked too. Half of you idiots either passed judgement without reading the piece or didnt understand the context. For all you pulling for Mathieu to fail, you certainly dont treat the people you love in your life with the same lack of compassion that you do with Mathieu when they struggle with something.
Society is too quick to pull the trigger on criticism, and too hesitant to change the point of view and think about yourself or a loved one in the same situation.
If you havent, please take the time to read the article.
Im pulling for Mathieu, to go high in the draft, and break NFL records, but more importantly to win in his battle with addiction, and to have a good and happy life filled with peace. He is a Tiger for life, regardless of what you peons "think." and I wish the same for all people, but especially Tigers!
