It really is a shame. That 2011 season...phew. I think he should get credit for maybe 20-30% of the success that season. It was amazing how many times he either flipped the field or pinned people deep. It seemed as if he were setting a new prototype for punter of the future with his ball placement.
As for my earlier comment regarding his fathers influence, I stand by it. Sure, people need to be responsible for their own actions. Brad followed in his fathers footsteps, though, in attempting to bring Aussie style kicking to American football. His father has filled him with a lot of unrealistic expectations and arrogance. It showed last year. Brad has nothing without football, and his father told him and everyone else college didn't mean squat because brad would make it all in the pros. Good thing the girl he knocked up has some family money.
