Again, we would all look like jerks if we had cameras on us at age 17-19. All of us. But most of us aren't, we were just teenagers who had swings of emotion and immaturity, because we were teenagers.
Most of the minor leaguers, and college athletes are teenagers. Cameras and the press follow them. Where are all the stories of them being jerks? Now many of them have their own name tattooed on their torso?
