That is not arrogance-- that is reality.
You don't seem to understand. He didn't just make some forgiveable, youthful mistake. What he did puts a LOT more on the table than just garden variety alcoholism. Multiple felonies and evading arrrest?
You have no problem cheering for THAT, as long as he makes a few sacks for us?
If you're drunk enough, it's hard telling exactly what you'll do. Labeling him, or drunken drivers in general, a lowlife. It doesn't make any sense. Stupid? Sure! Thug? Hell no! He just needs to get back on the right track and away from alcohol. His punishment is soon to come, but I believe the Rooney's did the right thing in allowing him to prove himself worthy of a roster spot (or a Practice Squad spot, in this case. He made a mistake. It IS forgivable if he gets back on track. Don't you dare label me as the guy that ignores player character and pays attention to the play-making either. That's bullshit.
