How kind of you to say when he's trying to make better choices. Probably the main reason he is out doing something with his life and you will probably be sitting at home with a bottle curled up in the fetal position crying alone for the rest of your life. lol

Maybe I didn't make it clear enough in the column, but I sincerely hope that this is the last time Rey has trouble with the law. Our community looks up to him so much, so many people are rooting for him and he has worked so hard to be in his position, it would be tough to reconcile if something like this springs up again. It would become very much situational and he'd be subject to losing the support of many fans, both locally and nationally.

Here's to hoping that day never comes. I'm confident that there are many more supporters of Rey than naysayers. Let me state here and now that I support him and wish Rey nothing but the best in his career and personal life.

There is another saying: "Stay hungry." It means keep the fire of your desire alive. Don't rest on your laurels. I just hope he can quench his thristy self without ruining his life in the process.
Stay hungry, Ray.

It is now all up to him and I wish him success, both in his life and football. The rewards couldn't happen to a nicer kid, or nicer family. What kind of man (and player) he becomes is up to him.

Rey needs a Life Coach.

He needs to be counseled on setting a series of goals for himself.

He needs a coach to expose him to a different life than closing a bar down with a couple of teenage girls.

He needs to be coached to get involved in positive civic events.

Rey is making enough money to afford himself a $50k a year mentor.

Still unconvenced. He said "i'm sorry" and stated he'd learned from his mistakes after both of his previous runins with alcohol and the law.
As for the DA saying girls weren't there... keep in mind that he was in a small county with it's own good old boy system and families that don't want the entire world to know that their minor daughters were out illegally buying beer, as well as DAs who are willing to not make waves ahead of elections.

But he's not trying. The perfect resemblence between this apology like statement and his previous insincere apologies.
And he's not "out doing something with his life" He's PLAYING A GAME and PARTYING. How do you see this as "doing something with his life"?

Sorry my computer hiccupped.
The first paragragh should have continued.
..." causes me to beleive that the only thing he's sorry about is being caught, being punished, the loss of social status and benefits that went with that."

His criminal record alone qualifies him as not being a "Nice Kid" If even a tenth of the anacdotial stories about his bullying and drunken mysogany are true then he qualifies as a "bad kid"

I could only hope Actually in Humboldt could meet Rey face to face.But hiding behind a keyboard doesn't give me much hope.
