From PFT article

And while the Bucs are putting on a happy face when it comes to Talib, there is evidence that trouble has continued to follow him.  A recent item on Yahoo! Sports sets forth several pieces of evidence that should be cause for concern.

Before training camp, Talib had been late for meetings.

He missed the flight to Canton, when the team’s rookies visited the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

His position coach, Raheem Morris, admits that Talib is a “wild child.”

Due to his various actions, Talib already has been fined “heavily and repeatedly” for violating team rules.

They knew what he was when they drafted him.

Hopefully he grows up quickly.

All that's from a year ago. They are just rehashing it. He supposedly hadn't had any issues since the season started last year until the little skirmish yesterday.

If you pull up last year's post-draft threads, many here were worried about his personal character flaws.  That's the problem with Generation "Y"ers - sense of entitlement and instant gratification. Throw in star athlete, first round draft choice, and you have the recipe for disaster.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Generation_Y



[edit] Generation Y in the workforce
The Millennials are sometimes called the "Trophy Generation", or "Trophy Kids,"[19] a term that reflects the trend in competitive sports, as well as many other aspects of life, where "no one loses" and everyone gets a "Thanks for Participating" trophy and symbolizing a perceived sense of entitlement. It has been reported that this is an issue in corporate environments."[19] Some employers are concerned that Millennials have too great expectations from the workplace and desire to shape their jobs to fit their lives rather than adapt their lives to the workplace.[20] To better understand this mindset, many large firms are currently studying this conflict and are trying to devise new programs to help older employees understand Millennials, while at the same time making Millennial more comfortable. For example, Goldman Sachs conducts training programs that use actors to portray Millennials who assertively seek more feedback, responsibility, and involvement in decision making. After the performance, employees discuss and debate the generational differences they have seen played out "[19]

There are three (suggested) core elements that drive the ambitions of Generation Y in the workplace[21]  :

Impact--Making a difference is a strong motivational force behind Gen Y's efforts. Though salary and benefits continue to dominate the no. 1 and 2 on the importance list, making an impact ranks no 3.

Communication--The instant communication framework Gen Y developed through extensive computer usage has lead to a need for more professional feedback than that of past generations.[22] Communication platforms such as SMS, e-mail, video chat, microblogging and blogging have engendered a mindset that necessitates constant communication with others. That mindset has carried over into the workplace.

Flexibility--The divide between work and life is continually growing narrower as more people shift from the bricks-and-mortar to a remote workplace. The rate of remote office workers has increased significantly in the past two years, according to WorldWideWeb.[23]

Carol Elam and Nicole Borges discuss some issues with Millennials in a medical school environment.[24]

Gary Hamel discusses managing members of Generation Y. [25]

He is young and needs seasoning.. Being mentored by good character veterans helps to speed the process. Hopefully we still have enough quality left in the locker room to get this done..

Rehashing news from a YEAR ago to back up a non-story.  Unbelievable.

So true. I mean were are talking about MONTHS where he didn't in trouble with the team. Never mind the fact that he wasn't even on the grounds of the facility for much of that time.

Personally, I don't see why we don't give him a gold star for every week he doesn't do something stupid. He must have earned at least 2 or 3 gold stars since he was drafted. At least.

Using a helmet shows he's a p*$$y.

Why do you necessarily have to be wrong just because a few million people think you are?

That seems to be the general mentality of journalists these days. If there's any dirt anytime in the past of someone, they will dig it up and throw it in their face, whether it is relevant to the story or not. You can read an article about some poor bastard getting killed in a car wreck and they will throw in at the end that the deceased had a checkered past because of several unpaid parking tickets 5 years ago. I mean c'mon. I wish just one time somebody would dig up some dirt about one of these supposed journalists old high school or college indiscretions and post it publicly.

First and foremost, you never want anyone to be hurt.  Then you never want a sucker punch thrown at a defenseless guy.  That all being said, I like and expect skirmishes in OTA's and camp.  I love the fire and competition...

Without Carl Nix it feels like our running game just took a death blow to the face!
