Well when i find out what he is told by the coach and upper management i will let you know i agree with what you said i was just getting tired of reading all the foul mouthed comments and raciest comments<quoted text>
If you are indeed his brother-in-law, then please remind him of this:
Being an NFL player comes with certain responsibilities. He represents not only himself and his family, but his team, the fans and the NFL. It takes a bigger and better man to maintain a sense of dignity and maturity in a situation like that. Maybe the guy DID 'have it coming'(of course, that can be interpreted in a number of ways), but that's no excuse for poor judgement and violent, illegal behavior. He can save that for the field -- where he's PAID (and paid well) to be violent.
If it's an isolated incident and he learns from it, more power to him. If it becomes a pattern, then he needs to address that, and soon, before he ruins his life.
One other thing - if you are indeed his BIL - I'd love to know what his bosses said to him. It's probably not far off from what I said...and then some.
I do wish him well.
i know he's in a position to be a role model and is expected to to carry himself as one but like i said he is human and he made a bad choice and now he will have to deal with the court and most likly a law suit. it may be worth it for victim i would let him hit me for a hundred thou.
