No one is saying he's an awful person just because he likes weed and handles things immaturely.

But this same article could have been written years ago. In fact, it basically was. Check out this redemption article written over four years ago while he was still at Clemson:

http://www.espn.com/blog/acc/post/_/id/54097/clemson-wr-bryant-changes-focus-attitude

Talks about how he was a changed man. How he's focused on doing right for his young daughters, no more skipping meetings or practices, speaking more confidently and not being a loner, how he's straightening up his act and knows he's on thin ice.

Sound familar?

And since then he has been suspended for 21 games of his NFL career failing at least 3 or more drug tests, called out his QB over the offseason, threw Coates under the bus, did the same with Juju, called off sick to avoid a media firestorm he created, and has demanded a trade to a new city with not one mention of how this will affect his sobriety and road to staying clean, as if that is a total afterthought.

The reason he is getting criticized is he deserves criticism.

I honestly don't care what these guys do off the field. That said, "damn good kid" is not how I'd describe Bryant.


Of course you wouldnt..... :roll:

I don't believe Martavis is set out to destroy his relationship with the Steelers. I think Martavis has put in the blood, sweat and tears required for his return to the NFL. I think Martavis is at a point now where he has grown impatient with the process. He believes he can come out onto the field and destroy defenses. After sitting out a full season Martavis doesn't look the same as he did prior. I think he's grown frustrated/impatient and isn't being directed by quality influential people ie.. girlfriend/agent whomever. I think Martavis has redeemed himself enough to warrant another opportunity with the Steelers to continue his contributions to their success. Like most impetuous young men he wants it now. Perhaps he doesn't realize his ascension may take a little longer than he's planned for. I like Martavis. I hold nothing over his head as a fan of the Steelers. While he's made mistakes regarding his career in Pittsburgh, nothing IMO is worthy of 'Too' harsh-a judgement(s). I think, Martavis will come out of this a winner if he'd just stay away from social media with the raw unchecked emotional comments. Also, convey to your girlfriend to mind her own business and quit 'helping' you in the social media arena. JMO

The good ol'e redemption article template. Rinse and repeat. People like STD fall for these hook line and sinker. What a RUBE!
