Sporting News’ Ross Tucker wrote this HOT TAKE on DeSean Jacskon today. So let’s do what we do in these instances, and FJM this thing. Tucker’s words in bold, my responses in italics.
I don’t know anything about DeSean Jackson and his “ties” to gang members and frankly I don’t really care because in my mind, that isn’t really the issue anyway.
I don’t know anything about DeSean Jackson. But here is my 500 word opinion on DeSean Jackson.
His problem is one of decision-making and professionalism.
I can’t wait for you to enlighten us with the horrible decisions this extremely successful millionaire has made!
This isn’t one of those columns about how he needs to distance himself from some of the nefarious characters he grew up with or apparently still chooses to associate with. That can’t be easy and I know that I would have a tough time just completely shutting off any of the friends I grew up with. For all I care, Jackson can hang out with them all day every day.
Ross Tucker can totally empathize with DeSean Jackson’s upbringing.
