Right on the ball I think.
I mean, I can't vouch for those who have this "disorder," but sometimes I think it's just another name for daydreaming. It's not like this hasn't been around since humans existed...just because they found a PC name for it doesn't mean it's a new problem.
Anyway, if the Pats give him a nice Ritalin bath, I'm sure he'll feel a little better...but I doubt they are going to make him the focus of the offense because of it.
