If the son really went to West Point then he has had plenty of opportunity to learn right from wrong. The kid made a major mistake.
To lay this at the farther's feet is ridiculous. The son is a GROWN MAN. And to somehow connect this to coaching acumen is beyond a stretch.
This doesn't have any bearing on Joe Philbin's skills as a father let alone his skills as a coach.
However it is a distraction for him, certainly. I think it's OK to talk about it within that context.
When I die I want to hire the Miami Dolphin's to be my pallbearers so they can let me down one last time.
I'm still amazed Philbin held up as well as he did during his first season with the Dolphins, coming on the heels of his son's death. A new job in a new city, away from his family. I personally would have been a wreck.
He shouldve called Brian Hartline. We all know Hartline is an expert at fleeing the scene of an accident caused by driving intoxicated.
All kinds of people have all kinds of family issues. To lay the blame of a sons mistake at the feet of his father is frankly stupid.
Of course a new job and a new city must be exciting, he's been roasting on the BBQ since day one. Especially here on whats supposed to be a Dolphin forum.
Joe Philbin has nothing to do with what happened. It is his sons action and responsibility. To put any of this on Joe is just wrong.
