Wow. I'm sure we all suspected much of this but it's crazy to hear Todd finally spill it.

Just finished this. Really good piece. Rosenberg, despite his education, is a pretty good writer.

Read it this morning. Pretty heavy. Remember seeing the 30 for 30 but this went more in depth.

Was pretty hard to read. His sister was neglected like crazy, yet there she is, helping the father who abused and neglected her.

Yep, and the writing about addiction and all the relapses was gripping. I remember when he was a big deal. I had the SI issue when he was on the cover and I remember when MSU beat them in the bowl game.

I also remember putting a beating on him in the Sun bowl. He looked scared.

Their whole team looked scared. When Moten was thrown-out the Spartans were so enraged that they kicked the living shit out of USC. Marinovich looked like he was going to cry. I loved it.

And as for this article- the only person I really feel sorry for is his sister.

I'd agree.  As Wags said, treated badly but still doing her thing.
