What people don't understand about this, we, the common folk, try to rationalize a Cancun trip, as a big vacation, however as a celebrity, with virtually unlimited funds, this is nothing more than a brief getaway.. Probably the equivalent of a night on the town with your wife or a trip to San Antonio for the weekend, its no big deal. These people don't live the same life as the rest of us commoners and its nothing...
Jeez, just get over it..it was 3 days. He didn't miss a practice, a team meeting or anything. If your boss gave you three days off during the middle of your most important time of the year, would you sit at home and study work shit..doubtful
It's hard to say what I'd do, because I'm not in that position. I don't have the talent or ability he does. So I can sit here all day and spout off about what I think he should be doing, but in the end it doesn't mean diddly because I'm not in the same position he is.
However, you would think with all the pressure he's under, and his career on the line, he'd be studying all the tape he could get his hands on. He can't afford another mistake like last year.
Like I said. The guy gets paid millions to work a few months a year. Now is not the proper time for a getaway. There's a time and place for everything, I just don't think this is either.
EDIT: If nothing else, you'd think he wouldn't want any negative attention from the media. And if he goes 1 and out (I'm just saying if, so fuck off bandwagon blasters) the media is going to scrutinize any and every thing he has done. They will bring this little getaway up as the reason for a loss, etc. Would you really want to have to hear that shit for the next year? I know I wouldn't. I wouldn't want them to have any reason to blame a loss on.
