Every other team would do - and does - exactly the same thing. For every highly talented player they have who is undisciplined early on. There are multiple examples at every club. And that's the just what we know about, I'm sure there's much more that's kept quiet.You could make the argument that he wouldn’t even be a football player without the Tigers appointing chocko just to babysit him for the first few years because he was out of control, I would argue no other team would had done that for a rebellious youth and would had been delisted or exposed badly by the media when he stuffed up.
they really went well beyond the norm in protecting him when he first got there, and they also give him so much license in how he plays in regard to his zero defensive side to his game which I doubt would be allowed to happen with any other team.
