Do you know his family & his up bringing?...U know nothing.Stupid? Yes...incredibly immature, and will he need to pay a price for his actions, of course...but should he be crucified as much as he seems to be by many on here and on social media? No.
As some have alluded to, he's 19, got a big lot of money burning in the back pocket, and comes from a tough family with drug related challenges in the past (correct me if im wrong here). Youd have to be an incredibly strong willed individual to handle all of that on top of being put on the pedestal of being the next big thing.
He has owned it quickly which has helped control the narrative of the situation to a certain extent (and is the right approach imo), and I just hope his apology and remorse is a genuine one. For some reason I feel (and its purely a hunch) that it is genuine, especially in comparison to some of the other dickhead players that have rolled out apologies in the past.
It will show his true character how he handles the next 12mths or so.
My biggest disappointment about this is that he has a young daughter who he should be at home with supporting, cause god knows my mrs wouldnt let me out of the house for the first 6mths of our daughters life, let alone at da club letting rip.
In summary, - I think its dumb and immature, rather than entitled and arrogant. In my mind I have been comparing it to Proctor and Bromwich after they were getting after it the night of being hammered in a Kiwis vs Kangaroos test. They couldnt give a shit. But I think Walsh will learn from this...here's hoping.
