Let's not go overboard. Boone is obviously an alcoholic, so it's probably best for him to just stay clear of the booze. But in society at large, it's not alcohol that's the problem but a culture of excess and aggression. Most alcoholics don't go around smashing windshields, so it's apparent alcoholism is just one of his issues. That being said, for his sake and the Niners', I hope he makes the team and figures himself out along the way.
...and yes, it's ridiculous that alcohol is legal and marijuana isn't.
Don't get me wrong,I am pulling for Boone to beat his demons,I doubt alcohol put the rage into him,but I guarantee you that it was what let it out of him.Hopefully he can channel that aggression into becoming a top notch RT. I was not trying to comment negatively about Boone,just making an observation about the hypocrisy in the legal system.I (unlike some that post on these boards) pull for anyone and everyone on the Niners,but even if Alex wasn't a Niner I would still hope he gets himself squared away.
