A great post. I'm really hoping over the coming days that a narrative change which the Patriots and the Krafts could drive is that those players that are in deep, do not see the light at the end of the tunnel and turn to drugs and alcohol do indeed get the help and protection to stay in the league instead of recent times seeing these players as cheats, fcukwits or worse. Its proven society will not heal these men, its they themselves with proper help around them that do help them heal. Chucking them to the street is the last thing these people need. Lets put an arm round there shoulder and push them to a better path, if that means they still relapse, we don't suspend them, we try harder to help them instead.
