The father of USC receiver Vidal Hazelton was a bit miffed about what he believed to be poor medical treatment that his son has gotten over the course of this season. So miffed in fact that he penned a letter to Pete Carroll that, shock of shocks, has since found its way onto the internet. So, let's get to what Poppa Hazelton said.
What is being done to ensure that my son is being cared for in a proper manner??? When is the USC training staff going to meet his medical needs??? It makes me wonder if the trust that I have extended is misplaced.
The letter was actually sent back on September 1st, but Carroll refused to comment on it when asked about it recently. But guess who wasn't afraid to comment on it? Vidal's grandma. She must have been awful mad about her grandson's lack of treatment too, right?
Oh burn! Grandma Hazelton just took her own son to the woodshed. I also like how she said "My son is drama." Grandma Hazelton sounds like a pretty cool lady, and surprisingly up to date on the hip lingo of the day.
“The coaches are very good to us," she said. "There’s no confusion. They made sure he [Vidal] got his treatment and everything’s fine."
“My son is drama. I don’t know what he’s talking about.”
However, looks like things could be kinda awkward around the Hazelton household this holiday season.
