Plenty of Opinions

01 Dec

There are a lot of people ripping on Plaxico Burress because of his recent negligent discharge (See here, here, here, and here). Now, what Plaxico did was stupid: stuffing a handgun into your pants without a holster is just asking for trouble.

Now, I’m not going to get into the debate of whether or not over priced babies athletes should/not be allowed to carry guns, which is what the journalists people writing the above linked crap seem to be pissing and moaning about.

No, I wish to clearly point out Mr. Burress’ mistake. It’s actually very, very simple to see. He should have been licensed and he should have used a holster. Don’t we all remember this guy? I think Plaxico wanted to share his fate.

Now, as to Plaxico’s fate? I hope that he gets kicked out of the NFL. I don’t care about jail time or anything of the sort. Of the three major sports the NFL is the only one that can be saved – Stern is ruining the NBA and Bud Selig couldn’t care less about the sport that’s made him millions. Come on Commissioner Goodell, boot him! Your reputation as a fair Commish depends on it.

    Reese:I’m just sad Burress didn’t shoot himself a little bit HIGHER …after all, a brain IS a terrible thing to waste.(but he’s doin’ a damn fine job)Gun safety? Mean anything to you, Plaxy boy?Still, it wasn’t the gun that got him shot, as much as it was his STUPIDTY…the gun was just the tool used (on this tool).When you’re SUPPOSED to be a “role model”, and are always in the “media’s eye”, you or someone close to you has to make you MAN UP and hold you to a HIGHER STANDARD.But that’s just *my* opinion.B.G.
