Oh, don't get me wrong, the blunt of the blame lies on Harrisions shoulders. I just think that it's a shame this couldn't have been handled internally instead of being drug out into the open by a sleazy reporter (those of you who are familiar with Sipple will concur on this). A similar thing happened to Crouch when he was battling Newcombe for the starting spot... it got taken care of and things turned out pretty well for both parties. I know that when I was 18 I made some poor decisions too......
