Its why I said Lewan wasn't going to be considered at a spick here either.
There are guys who have been on record doing or saying really controversial things. NYC is the media capital of the world, and use the word media loosely to describe what is more like Paper***i. In 2006, the NYC "media" was in such an uproar over Strahan's divorce and contract talks they had half the posters on this board hating his guts and wanting him cut. I couldn't believe it. This was perhaps the most likable player and public representative this team has ever had, and the media somehow managed to turn him into a bad guy, over nothing. Imagine what they would do if they got ahold of this kid, or Lewan, or anyone who has done or said some really controversial things in the past.
The Giants have to consider these things because it is a reality of their world. Most NFL franchises do not have these concerns.
