We all have been youthful and ignorant at one point or another. I think the fame and money that these guys get at such an early age can lead it to go to their heads more often then not. They probably get used to a lifestyle where people just give them things all the time and expect it.
It is just much more refreshing to see a star athlete who is not a jerk.
My buddy ran into Jerame Tuman at a concert and didn't recognize him. I think they were in line for drinks or the bathroom. My buddy was wearing a Heath Miller jersey and Tuman complimented him on it and said something to the effect that the TE's don't get much respect and that Miller is a great young player. My buddy is joking with the guy and still doesn't realize who it is.
When they were parting ways, he told my friend who he was and he was taken surprised!
