    Don't think this has been posted yet. Good for Royce.

    Thank goodness this ended relatively painlessly. I hope that RW can get down to business now.

    I'd pay money for a seat on that bus. It could go to his awareness charities.

    You know that ride is going to be sweet.

    Re: Royce and Rockets Reach Agreement

    That's great to hear. If you haven't, read the entire article. It explains a lot of why things were handled the way they were, such as Royce in part made it a public issue to help bring awareness to mental disorders like this.

    Re: Royce and Rockets Reach Agreement

    So I still don't entirely get this. Was this a holdout? Was Royce refusing to join the team as leverage to get this done?

    This seems to address your question. It's kind of hard to figure out, but I think it sounds like he was more comfortable working it out now instead of earlier.

    He said that his delay in reporting for training camp was to formulate and formalize his plan with the Rockets, calling his willingness to put off more substantive discussions with the team until shortly before the start of camp is part of dealing with the illness.

    “One of the things that I know is this is my responsibility,” White said. “I had a letdown. In my defense, these things are unprecedented. To travel by way of bus or doing some of the things I did at Iowa State to head off anxiety, it was indicated to me through the draft process, sometimes in a joking way, that most teams wouldn’t allow that."

    Re: Royce and Rockets Reach Agreement

    So he was getting anxiety and pushed back discussing it until he was forced to? I can buy that, but its still not a good thing. Stay strong, Royce! We've got your back!

    It's not like he is incapable of flying, or just driving down to Houston if he wasn't there already. He was holding out.

    Very glad to hear this. I can't think of a time that I wished more for a former Cyclone to be successful.
