Not defending what Ted wrote, but I do take issue with what you wrote about him having no control over what pics people take and post.  They could not have taken of photo of him rolling up a $20 bill if he never rolled up a $20 bill.

While that is unquestionably appropriate for Craft, I was actually referring to an article on here some time ago about different descriptive terms that are typically saved for white dudes. Call me a cynic but for some reason I don't see BD as that complimentary so I assumed, perhaps incorrectly, a more devious motive.

I wouldn't disagree with "pretty good."  I disagreed with being called "elite" which btw, I don't think equates to "gutter team" either.

But this isn't a case of second guessing or hindsight (which other people have posted.). For both plays, prior to the snap, everyone at the bar I was at was screaming for Hyde. 

But you are right about moving on so hopefully there won't be any more articles on it either.

I respect your thoughts but I disagree.  Sure they could stop him, but with his performances up to that point, even knowing it was coming, the odds were still in Hyde's favor if given the call.  Also I don't think this is really hindsight, my bet is practically everyone prior to that call would have second guessed giving it to Braxton over Carlos.  

But what's done is done, we never know what would have happened for sure if Hyde was given the chance, and all anyone can do is move forward and hopefully take something away from it.

I call bullshit too. I think at that age, you get one "he's just a kid" pass. He had his and apparently the only thing he learned from it is there are no consequences.  Regardless of the outcome of the alleged rape case, the lesson should have been learned.

Great point Cavluv, not to mention the caller somehow had enough knowledge to make the conclusory statement that he was passed out drunk.

I think this is another example of that article posted on here a bit ago from NPR (I think) about commenting on headlines w/o reading the story.

Unless you have fact not otherwise put forward here, I think that's a fairly dumb!!! assessment.  You could blow a .008 after gargling listerine.  For all of the things players have done that have been defended on here (eg Stoneburner and Hyde), your judgment seems a little excessive or premature at best.
