It's (d) all three, right?

I thought he was more of a self centered doosh than this. Good for him. Hopefully, more people will do the same.

get a clue, moran.

peyton manning in an interview today with tom jackson even said as much. he was asked about visiting the families and all that. he said players were donating money, visiting the victims, etc. and the only reason the media even knew about it was because the victims were posting it on twitter and other sites.

the broncos arent looking for publicity as a result of this.

stoli n coke: Your move, Tebow.


So like I heard something bad happened in Colorado and I'm like not there anymore and I'm in New York now, and New York is cool, it's really big, and I'm big, so like that's cool and I'm sorry for whatever happened, I heard something about batman? But my mom never let me watch batman, but I've seen pictures of batman and he looks evil, so probably that's why a bad thing happened, but I'm sorry. Go Jesus, go Jets.

Reversal on the multiple choice trope.

Well played, Subby. 50 internets and control.

Well, he played college ball in Utah, which is pretty close.

Manning did his part days ago son, try to keep up.

Man why must people take this good deed and turn it into a pissing contest about other players? The shooting happened a mere week ago and just figuring out how to help without ending up giving money to a scammer can be tough.

As a matter of fact, I should look into what legitimate charities are setting up victim support funds. I can't imagine the medical bills that will come along with all those gunshot wounds... missed work, child care, long-term disability and, yes unfortunately funeral costs. Some of the hospitals have pledged to write off treatment expenses for these folks, but more help will be needed.

DoctorRock: much like chad johnson, hes an obnoxious loudmouth, but generally a good dude


Early in his career, Smith had some anger issues. He was jailed for a night over a fight in a meeting, and there was a play in 2003 where he was returning a punt and after the whistle had blown, he kicked his tackler's helmet while on the ground, a penalty that backed the offense up near its own goal line and almost cost them that game. After those injuries in 2004 and 2006, he took some time to mature and get over his temper. There was a fight again in 2008, but after breaking Ken Lucas' nose he went ahead and asked to be suspended. He's seen as one of the mature veterans now, and IIRC he was working on a long-term contract that would let him retire as a Panther (sadly, that day might not be too far off, and we'll need to find another big-time WR that isn't a head case).

Actually, he's just the kind of person who beats up on his own teammates for no good reason and has a history of other temper issues, but everyone making good money needs tax breaks and public figures often use them for good PR, so his accountants are at least trying to do their job.

Why is (b) implied to be a bad thing?

/Really wish American football would catch on internationally so these guys would have some leverage.

Submitter: choice A) should have been "mindlessly attack teammate in training camp and break his nose."

Which is why he wanted out of town until Cam Newton proved he wasn't horrible.

Steve Smith?

Shooooot!

I didn't blame him. Jerry Richardson lucked out with Cam. Otherwise he's become a crotchety old miser that would give Bidwell, Sr. a run for his money.

100k.. what is that going to cost him, like 10 minutes of playing time?
 
2012-07-28 08:30:47 AM
A nice feel-good story. But if we had national health insurance like most of the world, it wouldn't be necessary for these poor people to beg for help.
