In response to NedBraden's comment:
What is the thought process for someone like this, anyone, regardless of how much money you make. how famous you are, etc......to actually involve yourself with this kind of activity?
I could see if you aren't paid millions and live some kind of a gang life and think you have to live a gang life to survive, because there is some kind of conditioning for a kid to not know any better or not feel there is a way out, etc. You can kind of understand the source of that.
But, with this situation.....What is it? Even the Sean Taylor thing. The guy went to his offseason home to lay in his bed with a machete on his Bye week and was murdered doing it. What are you doing? You went to college, you graduated, you're paid millions, you play a game for a living, etc. What is the issue?
How many more examples of these kinds of people or incidents do we need to see or hear about before others realize they're actually participating in it?
Even the DUI stuff. How hard is it to seriously say "I am not going to get involved in that"...? Why would you literally want to throw away the fact you make up .00001% of society that makes 10 million per year, which pretty much means if you're somewhat intelligent, you can take that money and make it grow and once you retire, you'll never have to worry about paying your bills ever again? So, you go from poor or lower middle class to what many strive for in this country, to being a moron and involved in crimes?
Is it to try to be cool in some way? Like, why would you even hang around people who carry guns? I don't get that part either. When I go out with friends, I want to veg out in peace and have a good time. I don't want to pretend like I am on the front lines waiting for an attack. It's just the strangest line of thinking to me.
What is the thought process for someone who gets paid a crapload of money? Do they just quit being sensible and lose all control? What is it? What are the agents doing? What are the parents or friends saying to these people?
I get they're young, but they're not children either. You hear all the stories of rock bands and musicians who get the big record deal and then have too much money, too much time, free drugs, etc, and it spirals out of control, but these athletes are ABOVE the radar and we've seen dozens of examples over and over now, to the point it's very clear you won't win. How many more examples does someone need?
So, why do some athletes in general think they're different? Even if Hernandez is not connected directly to this, why would you associate in even having discussions about murdering someone? Can anyone make any sense of it? You play football, you practice, you play, you work out, you have a good time, etc. What is the problem? You go out with your friends and discuss murdering someone? Why? What possibly would make you make that decision?
Just forget it man. You have to live a real life. The fact that you are asking these questions a day after claiming to know it all, is really all one needs to see. YOu are a fraud. You said I think thugs bringing brought into the NFL, murders, etc is cool? Why? because I understand and can relate. I cant help where I came up, but as an adult I am doing just fine but I know alot you will never know. Its a bit late to ask questions know it all. Its a "HOOD" thing, you would never understand....lol
I knew you would jump in here and imply you are in a gang or were in a gang, trying to pass it off as "cool" again and then deny that is what you're doing. Like clockwork, mentally deranged Shizzles shows up. lol
W TF are you talking about!?!?? Im done with you man. Now im in a gang? Can u be more of an eeediot. Stop making up sh*t about me you cornball. MY life you will never know....just be happy you have no life and the board IS your life. Pretty safe way to live.
