07:01 AM ET 06.25 | The heart of this week's NFL Rookie Symposium is in the right place, of course. It sounds all well and good. And then you have the experience of Josh Gordon. ... [When] his first season ended, something happened to Gordon. He changed agents. According to a source, he gravitated to South Beach in south Florida -- the party haven of young pro athletes -- and ran with a different crowd. He was influenced by the wrong people. He tested positive for a banned NFL substance. ... Two weeks after the suspension was announced, Gordon riled up Clevelanders by flaunting his allegiance to Cavaliers-deserter LeBron James and the Miami Heat on his Twitter account. He tweeted about "the haters creeping back into the couches right now" during the seventh game of the NBA Finals.

The fragile and impressionable young minds of athletes... This is going to be train wreck. Where's my popcorn?

Another young guy who thinks he's bulletproof. I feel a bit of anger whenever I see one of these kids effing up his career for no good reason because I have the unfortunate ability to picture how I'd be living if I had a lot of money. I sure wouldn't be blowing off film study (VY), dealing drugs on the side (Hurd), or alienating everyone in sight (TO and a legion of others). And I definitely wouldn't be trying to live like the characters in a rap song (possibly AH). They get a shot at lifelong financial security and they treat it like nothing. Bugs the hell out of me.

Since he's also a Brown, does that make him a turd dog?
