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.
