I tried to go to a football forum but ended up at the most gossipy table in the nursing home.

If you can't say anything nice, at least pretend to have a little human decency and refrain from posting instead of passing judgment on a couple of young people you barely know anything about.

I don't think it's fair for any of us to criticize Ronnie since none of us know his situation in it's entirety. I just hope for the child's sake that everything works out for all of them.

Well said. Who knows...perhaps he and the mother were already engaged to be married.

At least he's taking responsibility for the child instead of too many today who are simply fathering children with any and every woman out there and not stepping up to the plate at all.

Let's all pray that he'll be wonderful father to this child.

(I wonder...where was the complete disdain some have shown here toward Ronnie for SG given he fathered a child so young as well?)

Exactly! I've known him for awhile, attended many a worship service and bible study with him. I have no doubts on his ability to be a good provider and father.

I have a confession everyone! I committed the abominable act of fathering a child while jobless! How dare I? 23 years old, no job, and I irresponsibly brought a child into this world.

But, but... Surely that child isn't properly taken care of, loved, and provided for right? WRONG!

Got a good job. Got a house and 6 acres, bought and paid for. Got a car, bought and paid for, along with my wife's car. My daughter is well fed and well dressed, and loved tremendously.

By the way, Jades' daddy never applied nor received welfare/government benefits, so rest easy fellow taxpayers!

Default Re: Ronnie Martin, father to be.

I read two posts; one about Sidney not being a loyal Gamecock because of a pre recorded video of him not mentioning us before a game and then this one bashing Martin for becoming a father.

What is wrong with some of you? Stop trolling against our own players.

I don't recall criticism for his being a father in college, but moreso, for his shenanigans setting a bad example for his child, which I myself brought up a few times.

The fact remains Ronnie is not the first of our athletes to have a child while in school, nor will he be the last (see Garcia, BJ McKie as examples). As I said before, at least he is stepping up to the plate and appears to be determined to be a positive influence in the child's life, as opposed to too many of the "fathers" in society today.

How is that any different than a parent who has to devote time to his/her job, some still in school, and also a kid? All parents have issues that they have to deal with that could potentially take away time from their child. Balancing everything is part of being a parent.

Instead of constantly looking for ways that he can fail, why not try to lift him up with support and positive reinforcement?

I am not going to judge anyone as we are told in the good book not to. So don't. I will say I hope Ronnie comes out ready to play and is focused on and off the field. We need him and I still believe in his abilities.
