Let me see, Vick was sentenced to 2 years for killing dogs ( I don't disagree with the sentence) and this man was sentenced to 30 days in jail even though he was under the influence. The judge is letting him train! This is totally disgusting! This is why I stopped following most pro sports. If you really want to get an idea of how pro football players are treated by the law, read "Pros and Cons" criminals who play in the NFL.

So - if I am an NFL star - I can murder someone and only get 30 days- WOW - what a deal what a great message to send out, what a great example to set. Only in America!

This MURDERER needs to be in PRISON, not playing football. If it were not for him being a PRO, he WOULD be in PRISON....Let him rot in jail

The court of public opinion has been harsh on this man. I read the 911 transcript. The deceased, darted into the road in order to catch a bus. The defendent did not have sufficient time to react and avoid collision. There was no traffic citation. The defendent also made the 911 call. He didn't leave the scene or deny any wrong-doing. The judgement has been fair. Any comparisons to the Michael Vick case or any other case are not appropriate, since there are too many variables involved.

My initial reaction was shock that he only got 30 days, but the more I learned about the incident, the more I agree with the outcome. After the tragic accident Stallworth handled himself as appropriately as could be expected.

I knocked some kid in the mouth while performing one of my signature helicopter maneuvers and he lost 3 teeth during an exhibition game at Reliant.

All I got was traded to the Vikings.
