Im not sure how to take your commment. Do you mean treatment by the media and fans? If so, that is an unfortunate consequence of the society we live in today. If you mean in the punishment determined by Urban, then I must disagree. In a legal matter such as this one which involves alleged assault (not sure if misdemeanor or felony) he was right to suspend indefinitely until more facts come to light. It seems like more evidence will be surfacing soon, so all we can do is hope for the best and that Hyde has been wrongfully accused.
Noticed that too
Agreed, upvote you if I could
Being unrealistic? Isn't equally unrealistic for everyone here to assume the team will not perform at a high level even without these two (if they do in fact remain removed from team/become suspended for X amount of games) without ever having seen an on field product?
This is the nature of the sport. Eventually, no matter what you have to replace your started. At one point Hyde was an unknown and not producing like the starter at the time. The next big thing may be second or third on the depth chart before all of this went down. Now we get to find out who the next stud will be.
Lets just be clear. I did not condone hitting a woman (allegedly), but as someone who has had a few drinks before reaching 21 and been in a few scuffles I will not throw stones.
Youre right, I guess I should have finished watching.
I have to agree with the sentiment that one player does not make a huge difference. Even with Roby, our pass defense was atrocious at times last year. And all of this panic is assuming that no other players have progressed over the off season.
Sorry man, some of us are human and make mistakes.
I shouldnt have even watched. Leading rusher? No, see braxton. Stepped in for jordan hall? No. and that was the first 30 seconds before I was too disugusted to continue watching
Out of a hundred total players (schollie and non-schollie) 4 incidents (3 confirmed) would prob be lower than the average arrests for the general population just saying.
Agreed. I would love to have both back as they are good players and up until this point had spotless images, but there is some young and hungry talent ready to prove themselves and now they may get the chance.
Finally, reason emerges. Kudos for a level head!
Agree with original comment, everyone needs to step back from the ledge. Roby will most likely get probation and miss max 4 games. Hyde is still innocent until proven guilty and will most likely be reinstated if cleared much like Storm Klein. Relax people, all is not lost.
