    Nothing wrong with therapy. Just no need to go public with therapy. That comes off as secondary gain.

    it’s just become too fashionable to reveal you are in therapy. And going public DOES provide secondary gain.

    I believe therapy or not, there is a group of fans who will boo RT the minute he sets foot on the field. Not a wise move as it fuels the enemy. Regardless of that probability, he will face gale force boos at his first interception. Is he prepared for that eventuality?

    There’s another reason to go public with therapy that you are missing; advocacy. One of the most productive ways to reduce stigma is for people to speak about their experiences. Even more so when the person speaking is in the public eye.

    i don't really think it needs advocating anymore

    it's like "cancer awareness" campaigns

    we know it exists, we don't need reminders

    but i don't really care he mentioned it, i care about what he said in regards to Malik though

    Yes I agree with you 10000% on the secondary gain thing. It’s popular right now to be a victim of something. And people exploit that all the time. No doubt about it.

    After watching the press conference I didn’t feel that way about RT17 (and I think my opinion on him is very well stated in here). But to me the question led him to bring it up. It did not seem like he brought that up just randomly. The question was pretty specific about how that game affected him/and if it still affects him. Seems pretty relevant to mention the therapy sessions at that point.

    but there should be no one in here denying people play the victim card for self gain,.. because that happens ALL THE TIME. And our society has embraced that mentality sadly.

    All of human history would argue that we need constant reminders.

    I don't get what y'all think he's gaining from mentioning therapy in an answer to a question he was asked. Obviously it's opening up him up to criticism more than it's gaining him sympathy.

    The people who are ok with it aren't giving him sympathy for going to therapy ...we don't see it as a big deal... On the other hand, look at all the criticism he's receiving. He's being called weak and a bad teammate and everything else... So where is the gain?
