As awful as the Hernandez case is, on so many levels, could there be a flicker of hope? Is it at all possible that this glaring example of paradise lost might, just might, enter the consciousness of some current and future players, who may be living in a similar universe.
Is it naive to think (or at least hope) that entitled 20-somethings with an invincibility complex, who have been idolized their entire lives. then handed an unimaginable fortune to simply do what they love to do, can make rational decisions?
