Commentator Terry Pluto talks to Amanda Rabinowitz about why fans should cut the players some slack and how they deal with the criticism.

Listener Comments:

Terry, you sound like an old man yelling for Joe Haden to stay out of your dang yard.

Aderall is a minor minor issue moving forward, he's not Ricky Williams or thank god Chris Herren.

It's unfortunate that he was suspended but to pretend his suspension has any impact outside of missing 4 games is laughable. His image will not take a hit for taking a prescription drug...I don't think it hurt Favre's.

Aderall is an amphetamine, it's a performance enhancing substance and very addictive. Yes cheating is no big deal.
