Ok so you're saying people would like his story more if he was a rapist on top of a recovering drug addict? Is that right? Really?
A lot of people can relate to addiction, that's why his story has made him more popular than his baseball skills alone. It's completely different than violence which wouldn't have made anybody go out and buy his jersey. How many people do you see walking around with an OJ Simpson jersey on? Micheal Vick?
