I think i was. Heck There are plenty of players who came back after jail time. I'm saying if he actually didn't do it he will be signed in a heartbeat

 

 

 

You cant be naive enough to think the guy is innocent.  That was my point

guys, can we not make jokes about this. A person is dead and another is facing a possible death penalty or life in pirson.  I'm just failing to see the humor in this situation.

This is the s hit that happens when you continue to let convicted felons play in the NFL.  Some guys will always think theyll be able to get away with whatever, and continue with their lucrative careers.

Just because people use humor doesnt mean they aren't saddened by the fact that someone lost their life.. Thats what i hate about this stupid PC society we live in today. Everyone wants to feel morally superior by saying things like you said. Well the truth is, some people keep it light hearted around serious matters and it has nothing to do with their morals or lack of sympathy for the victim and his/her family/friends.

 

One of the more funny tweets i read was "its going to take forever to explain all of this to Gronk".

See? that was poking fun at Gronk, not the victim even though the situation is the context for the joke.

 

Lighten up people.

I think the Gronk tweet is hilarious. I just thought the OP was "too soon" in my opinion. Moral superiority never entered my mind. I'm far from a PC type as well. Just decided to chime in.

    • Calvin Pryor sucks he's getting cut at some point they just drafted two guys that can disguise their blitz looks as both Maye and Adams can do a lot of the same things. Jets safety's are going to be beastly, and it's not like their front is bad either with Richardson and Wilkerson but I don't even know who is playing QB for them
    • Some of you may remember that I'm a banjo player and studying classical guitar and music composition at East Carolina University. This was my senior year and for my senior composition recital I composed a 40 minute chamber opera. I heavily borrowed from traditional folk songs from The Anthology of American Folk Music (good composers borrow, great composers steal - Igor Stravinsky). The idea was original to be about a 20 minute telling of the story from The House Carpenter, but after researching the history of the ballad, I decided to do a telling of the Scottish Daemon Lover version of the story and mix elements of other ballads into the story. I used a lot of melodies from the ballads that I used, though a lot of times you'll have words from one ballad, mixed with the melody from another. It's a large thing so I'm giving a link to download it from dropbox. I hope some of you are interested enough to listen. If you're not, who can blame you, move along and enjoy your day. The Daemon Lover Below is a description of each scene. Act 1
      Scene 1
      The House Carpenter is building a cabin in the mountains win a demon comes to see him. He says he must give himself or one of his family as a sacrifice. The House Carpenter says to take his wife, because she has no ability to make money for their children. Scene 2
      Jane Reynolds is alone at him and tells the story of her long lost love, James Harris. The House Carpenter returns home and tells her that he has to go out of town on a business trip. Jane Reynolds tries to convince him to stay, but she is unsuccessful. Scene 3
      Jane Reynolds is alone at home when the demon comes to fetch her disguised as her lost love, James Harris. He convinces her to go away with him and leave her children with the House Carpenter. Act 2
      Scene 1
      Less than 2 weeks later the demon and Jane Reynolds are at sea. Jane Reynolds begins to have second thoughts about leaving her family for James Harris. The demon grows tired of this and reveals himself to her. Scene 2
      The House Carpenter is living with deep regret for what he’s done to Jane Reynolds. He reveals that she is a witch, and if he hangs himself the spell the demon has on her will be lifted. The House Carpenter hangs himself. Scene 3
      After the House Carpenter hangs himself, Jane Reynolds can feel her witchcraft return to her. She makes the demon a mortal man and punctures the boat. The boat sinks and Janes Reynolds and the demon drown at sea. Below are the program notes for the piece When I was fifteen my Grandfather pulled a banjo down from his attic and told me if I could learn to play it I could have it. A few years later I discovered The Anthology of American Folk Music edited by Harry Smith. The music contained on those six CDs opened my eyes to an “old, weird America” that I had no idea even existed. I learned how to play and sing every ballad on it, and it was these songs that gave me confidence to major in music. I’ve felt for the last couple years that the deeper I get into classical theory and technique, the further I’m getting away from these folk songs that have been so important to me. This chamber opera is my attempt to reconnect a little bit with some of these ballads. “The Daemon Lover” is a traditional Scottish ballad that is known as “The House Carpenter” in America. The story in this opera is basically that song, with a few story elements added that come from other folk songs. These songs include “The Old Lady and the Devil, Butcher’s Boy, The Cuckoo, Omie Wise, and The Drunkard’s Special. The melodies are also taken from folk songs, though often the words are taken from one folk song and sung with the melody of another one.
