Everyone is so quick to crucify. He agreed to pay for the damages. Now let's delve a little more into this. Dumpster close to car. Bray, the QB, tossing from balcony into dumpster. Roommate tries same but can't hit dumpster, accidentally hits car. Roommate can't afford damages but Bray can and feels he's partially at fault. I honestly don't see the big deal. Anyone who heard about the cops being called could've damaged the 2nd car on the afternoon that Bray wasn't there. Or even worse, and just a possibility, the 2nd incident could be made up to get repairs done for free(depending on what insurance coverage she has). Rock off a dump truck may have hit the Windsheild on her way home for lunch for all we know. Everyone is so eager to crucify without all the "facts".
That link of the tweet that kid sent me is blocked.
i get the whole, boys will be boys, and "when I was in College..", deals, cause lord knows i've done some things im not proud of either..HOWEVER, im with Vols28..who throws beer bottles and golf balls off of a balcony? no matter how stupid i was or drunk or both, such an act never occurred to me. Query, what would have happened if someone was down below and was struck? The level of irresponsibility and carelessness is what is alarming to me. I agree, in the scheme of things, a dinged car roof and cracked windshield are not that big a deal, especially since Tyler offered to make restitution. What is a big deal, at least to me, is what the act says about the person. Like everyone else, i had read with great optimism, the reports of Bray's new found maturity and leadership. Perhaps why this news is so disappointing, since my faith in Tyler's growth appears to have been misplaced. Tyler is 20 years old now, and has to know the difference between right and wrong. And this was just plain, old fashioned, wrong. And if Tyler hasnt learned that by now, heading into his Junior year as one of the "faces of the franchise", sorry, but that is cause for concern. For everyone's sake, most especially Tyler's, I hope for one of two things: 1) the facts are not as they have been reported and Tyler was not involved (given Wes's reporting prowess, though, this seems unlikely); OR 2) Tyler accepts his punishment, whatever Dooley deems appropriate, learns from it, moves on, and has a stellar junior year both on and off the field.
