In response to TripleOG's comment:
Please , this is why as fans, just stick to football. If you went and dug up everyones rap sheet, u wouldnt watch anymore. Like Deion Sanders say, you want your Cbs to have that "dog" in him.
Hows the patriots way working in the back end the last few years? Why is Pacman still in the league after ALL the stuff he did?? I know players that played for N.E. in the Hay day. Most players arent saints. Do they mature with age and when they settle down w/families , sure, but listen... Let me tell you.
I used to work with Ty Laws cousin , Ray who moved up here when Ty was drafted to R.I. Remember the exctasy case when Ty said he had his cousins bag and didnt know...well, that was the cousin and he said he told Ty to say it was him to save his career or whatever. I sold Bud to Tully Banta Cain and JR Redmond and smoked with Redmond. I mean these are regular cats and getting the squeky clean guys dont assure you anything. U need players like this and we had none in the back end. ONly Spikes on the WHOLE team is nasty so Im all for it. Stop being naive. Football players are humans and a lot come from the hood, thngs follow them,. He will be better off field IN N.E. rather than Tampa.
thanks for the story insights triple.
taxi cab thing didnt sound good, however i seriously doubt the older taxi drivers report.
not condoning the behavior, but i imagine a big difference of opinon and or i could imagine, likely some racist stuff was said, and talib being from a place where you dont get away with that, esp in front of the guys (ie serious disrespect and you gotta show you are a man).
by all reports talib is a smart guy and very tough. he does come with a different code than any due to where he grew up. his latest issue with adderol was nto about acting out. i see more and more players are beign caught with it, the "greenies" of football (see mlb)
