What is this world coming to when bible thumpers like April are defending thugs who shoot firearms without regard to anyone's safety at a strip club with drugs at 3a.m. in the morning.................

I stated in my original posting he was assisting a teammate/co-worker.

Hahah, assisting a teammate. Now that's funny. By assisting a teammate, you mean running into the stands and attacking THE WRONG GUY? Is that what you mean by assisting? Hey, at least it was an assist.

Did you read the article on Mr. Wilford aka Fingers today? I guess the police officer was acting like a thug.
When I watch hockey, guys fight over things that have nothing to do with the sport. Fans applaud! No one calls these guys thugs.

Good point...I agree 107%...I suggest everyone with the thug comments hush if the source of your information was through the paper or internet. And after all, don't you think how much of a nobody you are anyways to just surf the web for news and waste all the time commenting on somebody. Your comments really don't mean anything outside of this forum and so why not hush...thug this thug that...I have even heard someone say that look at the way he is dressed, just like a thug...how silly. Get lives people. The closest you will ever get to being famous is commenting about a famous person on the internet. SORRY

Hmm, I have never seen a gunfight in a Hockey rink. Interesting. After they are sent to the penalty box for fighting, does their weed get confiscated like the Pacers did that night? Just asking. Also, just because "Fingers" is a thug doesn't mean Jackson isn't.

Nor have you witnessed a gunfight at a Pacer game. The dictionary defines Thug - a cruel or vicious ruffian, robber, or murderer.
S. Jackson was in a fight, so I guess we'll classify him as a cruel ruffian. Hockey players that fight must also be classified as ruffians, also the two guys fighting on Monday night football and kneeing oneanother in the private area are also ruffians. The Nascar drivers fighting at the end of the races, must also fall under this title. So if you call one guy a Thug for his acts, then all must be Thugs for similar actions.
You have the right to not like a person or a group of people, but don't discriminate and call one guy a Thug and give the other guys a pass.
Furthermore, did S. Jackson get charged with drug possession? Is this why you called him a Thug? Interesting! I guess all these MLB players are thugs.

If you have a problem with S. Jackson, pull him to the side after the game and talk to him. Maybe things will work out for you (hopefully). Currently, you are acting like a jealous hater.
See ya in Dallas....Go Colts

I did't even think of that but that is a very good point

Hey that is uncalled for but one of them would probably do that

You put a lot of people on that list that are “speculated” to have used performance enhancing drugs. Using performance enhancing drugs doesn’t make you a thug, it make you an idiot. This still isn’t the same thing as a gunfight in a parking lot with drugs on the scene. You want another thug, how about Bill Romanowski! Now he’s a thug! As for Rafael Palmeiro, Ken Caminiti, Jason Grimsley, and Jason Giambi they should be banned from baseball (those who aren’t dead). The rest of that list is speculative, could we guess who else was doing what, but that’s a maybe, maybe not scenario.
Also, you brought up hockey. The fight is part of the game. That’s why they have penalties for it and allow you to return to the game. If you get in a fight and throw a punch in baseball, basketball or football you are ejected from the game. Different rules for different sports.
