The argument among fans is varied because many are tired of seeing this behavior, but they still love their team and need players like Parker. However, that's not stopping his arrest from being the most talked about story in town.
"He's made one hell of a bad decision if this is accurate. And a selfish one to boot, but I don't know if he's a bad kid." said radio host Jeff Cameron.
Cameron heard from exhausted fans in the Tallahassee area Tuesday afternoon--fans who've heard the tired word of another FSU player's mistake. And it begs the question, when is enough going to be enough?
"More and more, when these things happen, I'm not desperate to see a guy like that--a selfish individual--if he is indeed guilty of what they are charging him with, back on the team." said Cameron.
On campus as students pack up for the semester--Parker's arrest is another blow to their Seminole spirit. "He's like our best receiver. He's a big name, and you know, he does something stupid, so it's very disappointing." said FSU student, Danny Gonzalez.
However disappointing, some fans are willing to forgive and forget, no matter what the situation. Erich Breedlove shares the opinion of many other fans. "As long as he can come out and apologize. Apologize to the team first and then the coaching and then the public and he can kinda lead by example. I feel like everybody makes mistakes,everybody deserves chances. Because if everybody was, you know, ruled on one mistake then where would we be?"
Because of the charge, Parker would not be allowed to play for the 'Noles if they were in season, but he will still be allowed to practice.
