I could care less if he cries in front of reporters or not, everyone shows their emotions differently. But playing in the game, to me, is unconscionable. Is there anyone here who has a son or a daughter that would play football (assuming your a pro)/go to work the day his kid dies? I've seen ball players miss games due to a close friend dying, grandparent dying and parent/sibling dying. Those are all horrible, but nothing, NOTHING compares to losing a child. I am pretty baffled to be honest.
AP says he will be focused and ready to roll on Sunday. How is that possible? His 2 year old son was just beaten to death.
I'm not excusing it but I guess he didn't even know the kid or even that he had him until very recently. But people deal with their grief in different ways. I wouldn't come down on the guy until you (God forbid) walk a mile in his shoes.
TMZ reported that when AP saw the boy in the hospital it was the first time he ever saw his son.
Might go a long way towards explaining his weird behavior in dealing with this nightmare
Yeah. I heard he was planning on meeting the kid sometime soon. Sad on many levels. I would like to think AP was planning on being a part of the kid's life b.c he doesn't strike me as someone that wouldn't care about such a thing.
