I bite my nails. I have a late relative who was an alcoholic. Does that mean me/him have/had obsessive compulsive disorder?
That's why I'm having a real hard time with Ryan Perrilloux playing the OCD card in this Yahoo Sports story. To his credit Perrilloux doesn't blame his OCD for all the shenanigans that went on at LSU but it's still out there as kind of an excuse. It's pretty hard to pinpoint a mental disorder as a cause for trying to pass a fake I.D. at a casino.
I hate having to put a label on everything. Maybe Perrilloux is just an irresponsible bad guy, not afflicted by some disorder. The OCD sure didn't hurt him when he helped LSU win a national championship.
We find out in the story that Perrilloux isn't exactly an upstanding citizen. (You knew that) He missed a post-bowl team meeting because he overslept. (How does that happen?) He has a child out of wedlock who was born prematurely. Best wishes to the child and mother but the father's future can't be good.
It sounded to me like Les Miles went to the absolute last mile with his quarterback. OCD or no OCD, he had to finally let him go.
There have to be all kinds of red flags for the NFL ... if, IF Perrilloux ever gets that far.
