  • Well, my take is: thank God that this is not violence, criminal, etc. Dumb sure, but it's just a kid who didn't know how to handle traffic violations and racked up some civil infractions. I'll begrudgingly accept if the league hands out some minor consequences, but all in all I am truly not worried about this.

    pretty much the same here ... however I am from the school of thought the league should stay out of it entirely because it happened prior to playing a down in the league ( the infraction that got him the fines) and since it is not something that alters performance it simply is not any of their business ..


    had it been a banned substance violation that alters his ability on the field in a + manner that would be another story for me anyways ..

  • i agree... it didn't light up here because we get it. it was all over the news and such because of most people's knee jerk reaction to an arrest. but i believe here we look at it and make an intelligent decision as to whether it truly is something serious or not....
