Garrett Reid

Posted July 14, 2013

I am blogging this for one reason why does a death of a child have anything to do with football?

Sure the son was involved with some aspects of training camp.

But lets look at this in a mature way or can we, his son was struggling with a sickness called drugs not a play book. 

I used the Penn  State  story as an example of how we can think we know all?

At PSU it didn't matter how many kids being abused , No what mattered at least from what I read FOOTBALL are you kidding me , look at how popular Nittany lions football was and Joe Paterno how or why should this thing called abuse take away from that?

Now I read where a death of a son is being overlooked? 

I have never had kids, I love kids but as a joke they go home...

But as in a sports crazed society , it didn't matter what kind of reaction the Reid family had over this tragic death....

all I've read about recently is the sy of relief that coach Reid is gone. and we still want to ring up his sons death??

This I don't understand...I as I said have never had kids so how would I react in this example????

the idiots who are news people are in my mind super idiots when it comes to reporting, example a family has just lost everything in a fire... and here comes the idiot with mic in hand asking this "how do you feel?" 

or lets say when Reid's son was found I can see some ....expecting Reid to say hey lets all go to Disneyland?

How would YOU handle it?

lets from now on keep it in the context of football or sports if nothing else!
