"Adrien Broner Pulls Out Of Omar Figueroa Jr Fight Due To Mental Health Problems"
At the risk of incurring the wrath of the PC police, I gotta raise not one eyebrow... but a whole set of eyebrows to this.
There has to be at least a million one-liners that come to mind right now, but of course I don't want to seem "insensitive."
All I gotta say is, Adrien Broner... "mental health issues." I'll just let that marinate for a bit.
Are you f*cking kidding me?? REAL
mental health issues is a real and serious issue, one that many people have to deal with. But at the same time it lends itself to claim abuse by any Joe, Dick and Harry who wants an easy bail on something. Of course, as soon as someone claims "mental health issues", no one will touch that with a 20-foot pole, lest they be accused of being insensitive to the poor soul. It's almost like the "Me Too" trend, where now even someone like George Foreman is being accused of sexual harassment for something that allegedly occurred sometime in the last millennium.
I'm gonna go out on a limb and say Broner doesn't have any mental health issues, other than those he's always had... which admittedly are quite many. IMO, he's just a buffoon who has overstayed his welcome in boxing way too long and needs to go back and reestablish himself somewhere else in life.
