Yep, well-written and very fair.
The question to answer, imo, is summed up here...That doesn't seem right, or fair. But it would be equally unfair to wipe Hill's misdeeds from his record -- to pretend he can outrun his demons as swiftly as he shoots across our television screens. Hill's past is a permanent part of his story, and it should be mentioned every time his life and character are discussed. His efforts to redeem himself are also part of that story. Someday, they could become the most important part.
Is it wiping his misdeed off his record if it is not mentioned every time that he is praised? I'm not sure that there is a perfect middle ground in cases like these.
first let me say that y'all that i was bullshittin when i said mina kimes was bae. my baby is smart af, and a very talented writer. and stuff like this is why i love her shit. well thought out and holds herself accountable for what she herself thinks and sends us through her thought process. great stuff.
anyway.. to your point UEM, i think that kimes is saying it should be mentioned every time his life and character are discussed. not every time he makes a great play or plays well in a game. but specifically talking about his life and shit.
i also want to say kudos to collinsworth for handling that shit like a boss when he called that game. and also kudos to gundy for getting off his ass, going to the police station and viewing the video himself. then kicking him off the team.
