Also how are you sure he wouldn't have taken some blame if he was here to tell us?
I said the kid did
have common sense based on his tweets, but didn't express it to the coaching staff. I said that was what's most disappointing was that he knew he was in a bad situation and didn't speak up.
As far as your question... the way society works, I highly doubt it.
