I am comparing two players starting out at the same place with the same challenges and pointing that it's up to the player to perservere through it.

But sure I can buy in, Bonsignore - although being the poster boy for colossal bust - was really just misunderstood and mistreated even though those that were here before him endured similar and got through it just fine.

I have little sympathy for a guy that was gift wrapped an opportunity that damn near every kid in Canada would kill for but didn't want bad enough to do what was needed to succeed at it.
