just let the guy drink for 1 day once in a while to get it out of his system.
one night of heavy drinking can be satisfying.
even a person who diets is supposed to have a cheat day.

this really doesn't affect where I'll draft Hamilton. He's pretty much on my do not draft list because I don't like 2nd rd'ers that get injured 75 times each season.

I'm surprised many are assuming this is an isolated situation. Drug addicts/alcoholics having one drink is considered a relapse. Not something to take lightly, and definitely something that could affect his season. He won't be on the field much if he ends up back in rehab.

I agree, we shouldn't blow this out of proportion. However, the circumstances dictate that we have no sense of proportion on the matter, other than the severe alcoholics/drug addicts that have posted so far.

I really hope there's no sex tape. It sure seemed like he was trying to get ahead of something with the press conference. I hope the other shoe is not something that further jeopardizes this guys health and well being. Not to mention that the game is better when he's on the field. A tragic story Josh Hamilton - the guy really deserves a break.
