i think they were trying to do a story on him, his child hood and the behaviors that got him in deep....sort of a documentary type but he declined, which drove them to a smear piece butt thats just my opinion
I have to admit that I haven't read SI in many years...but it used to be something really special to be put on the cover.
TM7 was a big phenomena, but he isn't even playing right now and may not play again. I am surprised that he would still be considered to be that big of news and put on the cover when there are so many stories from active players...that is why I thought word had gotten out that he was coming back...so their cover issue would time up perfectly with his return.
