Let’s get the obvious out of the way. Nobody is perfect. Not even the star running back in a city that idolizes its professional athletes.
So that LeSean McCoy has some apparent issues with the mother of his child shouldn’t come as a surprise. Nor should it be shocking that perhaps McCoy’s personal life, if what was revealed on Twitter Saturday evening is true, may not be as clean-cut as his polite and professional demeanor in the locker room would suggest.
Life is difficult, relationships are hard, and sometimes things get twisted.
It’s none of the public’s business, nor should McCoy be criticized for his personal situation.
Except that it becomes the public’s business when a star athlete uses a very public forum to initiate a very private conversation for all to see. In writing.
McCoy may or not be a good father. He may or may not have Herpes. He may or may not have a small, well, we’ll leave that one alone. That’s his business. But why in the world would McCoy allow for such a private and unflattering conversation to not only take place over Twitter, but also urge his followers to get involved?
McCoy, who was supposedly vacationing according to a set of tweets sent early Saturday night, could explain this incident in a variety of ways. Maybe someone was tweeting on his behalf. Maybe he was drunk. Maybe someone hacked his account–the often used excuse by people who send regrettable tweets. None of these explanations will paint McCoy in a positive light.
I’m not here to condemn or pass judgment on the man’s situation, I’d just like to know why in the world he would put it out there for all to see.
