Since when is latimer considered a guy "likely" to go in the first or early second? I've read probably hundreds of mock drafts and done at least 50 myself. I don't remember ever seeing him go before out second pick. I like him as much as the next guy but to say he (almost definitely) won't be there by our second pick is silly and uninformed. There will be better value available in the first. This board goes through the same rigamoral every few weeks about its latest favorite draftee. Until this dinner meeting it was widely assumed that he would be a 3rd round target. I can tell you that he is being projected to go later than that, though sounds like a riser so I doubt he would drop much more than that. I don't think id be angry with him in the first but geez.
Don't know any of the details of the story here. Will say this in general...
A guy who hits or abuses a woman doesn't deserve to be called "a man".
You can't generalize. I used to work with a couple when I was a kid on a farm. The husbands loving wife out weighed him by about 50 pounds, and it was mostly muscle. He would regularly get drunk on Friday or Saturday night and would show up to work on Monday morning with shiners, cuts, and bruises where his wife beat the piss out of him. She would be of course unscathed.
It was spousal abuse all right. But no one seemed to care because it was a guy on the receiving end.
Like anybody home said take your dog to the vet first and see what they say. In all likelihood from what you say it is time to prepare yourself to let your buddy pass into the next life with your and your vets help. My last two pets I have had euthanized at home, and it was well worth the house call cost to have it done here where they had spent their lives and were the most comfortable.
Best to you both - dont be afraid to do what is best for your friend.
your " gelling " idea is an over hyped myth held by folks who dont realize these guys are all professional athletes. Once the new guys run a few rutes with cam they will learn one anothers habits. How many yards did cam pass for with brand new to him recievers his first year?
