Yesterday, the troubled Josh Gordon put out a sincere letter defending his humanity and explaining his fallen nature.  The letter exploded on social media.  Some found Gordon's plea moving, while others found it to be another excuse in a long line of "but what had happened was."  

The Panthers have had a troubled athlete controversy this season.  It's been one of what many believe to be a more serious nature. Greg Hardy's domestic dispute, however, has largely fallen out of the media's focus.  

So do you find yourselves a wanting to forgive these guys for their transgressions?  Does an act like Gordon's come off as sincere or just denial?  Is it better that these guys just keep their feeling close to the vest, or do you like to see this vulnerable side?  Jump on the mic and let us know.
