My thoughts exactly.

ESPN has reported that Josh Gordon has been arrested in North Caroline for driving while impaired.
What a fool. He had an appeal hearing coming up later this month. It damn well better be a whole season suspended.
No wonder they were trying to trade this guy. They knew the kind of dudes he was hanging out with and it was just a matter of time.
He's out of control. I can only hope, for his sake, that he recognizes he needs help and is willing to take it.
When his agent gives a "No comment" answer to his assessment of the situation you know it's a mess.

If you're close to Josh Gordon please help this kid, it's not about football anymore it's about picking up the pieces of his life.

Blame the lack of a father figure, bad friends, poor upbringing, young money, whatever it might have been, but it is tough to see these young kids make these very bad decisions.
Hope he can straighten his life out and maybe make something out of his talent.
That's exactly the problem. Every time something "bad" happens... there are always excuses like the ones you mentioned. I have zero sympathy for 90% of these guys including Josh Gordon.
