I'm not sure why he felt compelled to share that. I don't feel any more sympathetic after reading it and it contained nothing insightful. To be honest, I neither know nor care why he was a knucklehead, just that he was. And I don't like overpaid and underachieving knuckleheads. The Skins were stoopid to pay him that kind of money to begin with, especially if they were going to make him a nose tackle in their scheme instead of scheming to his strengths. But his response to what they wanted from him was so epically inappropriate and unprofessional, it ruined any idea that he is someone that I can care about.

And that remains the case after reading this article.

Definitely a piece written to provoke sympathy. I agree with you though.
