Guyz... He wuz in NC and a friends aunt that used to date him said he was meeting with Gettles... Something brewing!!

Be cool if blew his jersey number on a breathalyzer.


He was meeting with Gettleman to arrange his own trade? Windmills do not work that way.

He saved my fantasy season last year as like my 12th round draft pick and I wanted him when the trade rumors were flying.

 

Now? Get help, kid. Your playing career is probably done, but your life isn't.

I mean I was looking forward to seeing him play even before all the news of trouble started coming out.  Now I just feel sorry for the dude for being such an idiot.  A guy that talented and he's throwing it all away.

Me too.  I'd absolutely trade someone we know is just camp fodder for him.  The Browns wouldn't go for it and neither would J.R., but sure, I'd do it.

 

You'd be giving up something for a guy who's quite possibly never going to see the field again.

 

He was already expected to be out for a year, and now an arrest?  And for DUI, mind you.

 

Expect him to be suspended indefinitely, which means in order to be reinstated he'll have to stay out of trouble.  You really wanna bet on a guy who got arrested for DUI with an appeal of a year's suspension still in process doing that?

 

I wouldn't give up a ham sandwich for the guy.

The guy is talented for sure but is either really, really dumb or has serious addiction problems... Or both...

Either way, he's pretty much untouchable now.

 

If it's addiction, then there's a chance he can get help, but that's gonna take a long time, and I don't expect anyone's likely to take a chance on him until he's demonstrated - for a length of time - that he can keep his nose clean.

 

Again, if ever.  And it's a shame to say that.

Is that a positive or a negative for an admin?
