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......
Becks biggest mistake was probably calling Mom at home to let her know what was going on. If he hadn't Sipple wouldn't have got all those nice quotes from her and Beck would probably be running stadium steps today and the next few. But no........ Mom had to open her big mouth.
