Re: VY's Mom: "He's hurting inside and out."
A pity party? Where he quits on his team in front of everyone?
If he does ever get his head on straight and decides to "man up" he is going to have a lot of difficulty getting his teammates to look at him as a leader.
I think he has lost any respect he had from the Titans players. It will be a long, long time (if ever) he regains any respect.
All that is necessary for Evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.
