    Re: Reuben in trouble again...

    Two arrest this year is not a good sign.
    Some guys have problems when there is no one there to say
    Don't Do It.
    It looks like he is playing fast and loose with his football future.
    It requires a level of maturity to make your own rules,
    and not yield to temptation.
    I hate it for him, but he's doing it to himself.

    I am just going to assume Rueben will be out of the league before he hits 5 years. Hate it for him, like people say, he is doing this to himself.

    Wasnít Foster one of the dudes who took a knee to protest police brutality? If so (and I believe he was) letís just say the hypocrisy is quite thick.

    I`ve about decided that when you move some of these guys outside of a structured environment and system such as you have with CNS and his program ( and others as well ) and give them lots of money, they simply do not have the underpinnings ( AKA upbringing ) to handle it. How you were raised impacts you all the days of your life.

    I'm convinced the NFL isn't doing enough in this regard.

    Meh, every single one of these guys is a grown man. Maybe not fully mentally developed when they enter the NFL, but a vast majority of guys playing in the NFL have their act together wrt self discipline. IOW, I don't see it as an NFL problem, I see it as a problem on an individual basis. It would behoove teams to identify these guys and make classes / therapy contractually obligated.

    Nah, what it says is that Bama provides an atmosphere and structure that does a wonderful job to stay focused while in schoool. I think some of these guys really miss the structure they had a Bama, but at some point an adult has to learn to structure his/her own life.

    Easier to control them when they don't have six or seven figures sitting in the bank. Controlling yourself with money is a discipline that requires training.

    There's a reason some 70% of all lottery winners are bankrupt within seven years.

    Agree with 100% with your final sentence. That's where I was going.
