You fucking People

I shouldn't be surprised. With society's insatiable appetite for people like Terrell Owens, Chad Johnson, and a host of others before him, Odell Beckham Jr's cry-fest and childish tantrums have engulfed the football radio/internet waves.

I just ask why?

Why are people attracted to this type of behavior? And why on earth are there people out there defending this spoiled piece of shit (looking at you, Nick Wright)?

I'm not the smartest man, but I do know, as a society, any attention given to Beckham, or any malcontent, is aimless.

If there's any talk about him, at all, it should be about the ass-whooping he deserves, because he obviously never got one when he was younger.

Wright said that Eli Manning "threw his teammate under the bus" when Eli said Beckham basically needs to grow up, and start acting right.

He's accusing Manning of being wrong? MANNING! This idiot (Wright) has kids! I can only imagine how terrible they are if he condones this behavior from Beckham.

For a psychologist, diagnosing Beckham is wildly easy. He's been babied his whole life, told how great he is, and has never had to deal with adversity- until now- and we're seeing how he's dealing with it.

Diagnosing society's addiction to watching a shit-show? That's the mystery.

And that's the problem with our society.

Just because a person, Beckham in this case, is uber-talented, are we to believe he deserves a different set of standards when it comes to behavior in the workspace, or life in general compared to his peers?

In sports, we see this all the time. Greg Hardy is a prime example. He beat the shit out of his girl. Yeah, but can he still rush the passer? Yes. Then sign him up!

We all know if Ray Rice could still be productive he would've got another gig, too, and all he did was knock the shit out of his girl and drag her into an elevator- on camera!

Wright said Beckham isn't capable of changing. "That's who he is." A 23 year old not able to change? Sorry, but I gotta disagree with that one. Anybody can change, it just gets harder the older you get. At 23, he's going to.change- even if he doesn't want to.

The problem is our society. I've said it a million times, but we need to stop coddling these kids. And yes, I blame his parents, too. He should've been set straight when he was young, and that obviously didn't happen.

Just do me a favor.. Stop.
