So he gets to play in the NFL season and then do his time.

If that's not preferential treatment, what is?!

Not that he doesn't deserve it, of course. After all, he's a professional athlete. And all real Americans with proper, god fearing values know that pro athletes are special people who must, at all times, be treated well.

Bradshaw and others like him must be coddled and nurtured to ensure that our teams do well. Without quality sports to watch on TV, we are, in fact, nothing.

While I don't disagree with you Jim, it could be that this is part of a plea deal, where rather than trying to tie up the legal system with any challenges or appeals, till the end of the seaons, Bradshaw stands up and says he's going to serve half his sentence up front and half after the end of the season.

I agree the idea of preferential treatment wrankles, and if he's due the punishment he should serve. But there could be some legitimate flexibility.

Do the G-men really need convicts on their team? If they could win without Tiki and Shockey, they can win without Bradshaw.

What is it with you guys?? Of course you all are saints - like Shockey! We don't even know what the guy did. But what we do know is he is a great player and teammate.

And if he spends his summers in jail, well he can't really get into much trouble like many other football players!
