This sucks. Hope he gets better! Other than the fact that he has a past record, he's a good player who the Jags needed. Jags gotta hit the waiver wire now, and the time to do that is good...lotsa people got cut last week.

That wasn't the hood really. It is near a large top notch hospital, park on the river, and some very beautiful historic expensive homes. Who knows the girls could be living in a restored historal home.

Lets not rush to judgement about the neighborhood, and yes there are some run down homes in that area, but then there are some very expensive homes there on the river.

I feel bad that this guy was hurt, but am waiting until I hear all the details. I guess there was some sort of a dust up earlier or something.

What I do think is these young guys have bad judgement in who or how they date, picking up girls etc, and clubbing on a school night, no good. When will these young rich black men learn to be careful, and not be out partying night after night to show off their bling. Most folks are home in bed as today is a work day for most.

We lived at the beach and saw Fred Taylor all the time at a local nice place burger and bar. We have been Jaguar fans since Delores and J. Wayne Weaver brought the team to town. About the only good thing that happened in the 20 years we lived in Jacksonville.

Prayers for Collier!!

What a suprise, another member of the National Felon League

Its suprising the number of braindead sheep who pay big $$$ for tickets or waste a whole day watching a bunch of felons, thugs, and spoiled babies throw around a leather ball. I must be missing something, I know Neanderthal genes.

Hope he gets better and I also hope he will use better judgement in the future and stay safe.

The money goes to their heads. They gotta show off their wealth. That's what gets them into trouble.

My question is, what will the Sunday show talking jock straps have to say? Probably that he was a good guy, just misunderstood or some other crap to make him look good.

He wasn't a fourteen year old kid, who cares if it was 2:45 am? You've never stayed out that late before?

Now I can say that yes they may have had a good reason to be parked waiting around back for two nice girls in a good area at 3 am. But the chances are better that they should have not been there in the first place, thus placing themselves at risk. Bad folks in bad areas at a bad time face bad luck. Thats how it looks, and perception is MUCH closer to reality than not. Still a bummer that anyone gets shot for looking like they have money or bling.

Just because your player got shot buying weed in the middle of the night doesn't mean you have to take it out on Orlando. Don't worry we've had a Magic player shot in the street in the past too. You know, you can "them" out of the hood, but you can't take the hood out of "them".

Wow , you really have a problem. You are a bigot. How can you say that about another human being. Your parents were losers who fail to show you love and how to love others. You need help kid.
