    Not to beat a dead horse but the kid just got bad news, and only mentioned calling his grandma when Ireland asked if he was ok. It's not like he was shouting or demanding to call his grandma. He just simply said he wanted to call grandma, then under his breath he uttered and my brother. He was obviously upset and felt that his family could help him, hell I was upset watching it and haven't been able to shake how upset he was. Seeing a young vulnerable man upset like that kinda makes me wish we didn't do hardknocks.

    It's not what a grown man does.

    It's what a child does.

    That's the issue. He acted like a child.

    Thanks Shifty!

For all we know, she could be highly dependent so the change of location on short notice may be VERY HARD to cope with.

    The kid has huge talent, and may never realize it because he is not "worldly and mature".

    I also wouldn't call someone a millionaire who is set for life based on 3 years of a late first round rookie contract. Guy will have made a few mill, but with family, housing, agents etc, he is not a Bill Gates, just a well to do guy that had his rug pulled out.

    I wish we hadn't had to trade him, but either way I wish him nothing but the best. Good Kid, played hard, made some mistakes.

    Too bad we didn't keep him and unload Dansby and his "the world owes me something" attitude.
    My son is in the Army.

    He's just turned 21.

    Cry me a ****ing river about children, and choices, and, extraious bull****.

    Now Vontae can go act like a kid in Indy. Bye Bye douchebag. Here I'll even give you a couple quarters to call Grandma from me to you. You want a bus ticket and blanky too? Get the **** outta here, "I gotta call Grandama".
