However, Troy had constantly refused to give him the money, but Rose still gave it to him in the end. Troy believed if he could have a girlfriend and eventually his family, he should be able to get a job and support them. With Cory, he didn’t support him to play college football. Troy didn’t believe they were allowing colored people to play sports at a professional level and didn’t want his son to go through the same disappointment he had gone through when he tried playing baseball on a higher level.
