WAUNAKEE, Wis. Heisman Trophy winner Ron Dayne says his Rose Bowl rings, a bracelet commemorating his selection as the top player in college football and other items worth more than $140,000 have been stolen.

The former University of Wisconsin and NFL running back said Wednesday that his two bowl rings and other jewelry were stolen from his home in a Madison, Wis., suburb in April. Last weekend, an apartment in Madison where Dayne lived with a roommate was also burglarized, costing him the bracelet.

Sure, he pawned them off for food.

Seriously, as much as I've bagged on the guy I feel for him. Thieves suck!

Is it wrong that the first thing I thought when I saw the subject was..."someone stole his donuts?"

On another note, I agree with Hou-Tex...thieves suck and that sucks for him.

Someone gets robbed and it's prime time for fat jokes? Classy.

Scary situation as it looks like he's being targeted.

How could this happen? He was in an apartment. Things like that never happen in an apartment. Nor in a college dorm room. Shocking.

I say the roomie was in on the heist. It's just like in college. Who the hell else knows what you have in your room? Your freaking ROOMIE. That's who.

Nobody wants to say it. Nobody wants to say they think it. But 9 times out of 10 you got robbed because someone sees what you have. Plain and simple. They also know your schedule. It's not rocket science.

Throw in the fact that most sports fans know who Ron Dayne is, and that he lived in an apartment, and it's just so easy. A few months go by, the roomie decides he wants to go live elsewhere, and suddenly he's in a nicer place and driving a little bit nicer vehicle. It's magic, I tell ya'!

YUP! I fight with my wife all the time cause she wants to open curtains and blinds wide open and expose the world to what we have inside the house. I tell her time and time again that I do not want folks on the outside to see what we have inside, that is just asking to get robbed. I need to put up solar screens if she wants to do so, but that blocks the sun a little so defeats the purpose...

Sucks for the Dayne Train but those are possessions I would have kept in a safety deposit box or in a safe....

Funny you mentioned this, as I just sent the wife an email about a garage sale she's doing at my house tomorrow. As some already know, I've got a boatload of tools and equipment from my automotive life and several other types of expensive stuff. I informed her that my garage doors are to remain shut the entire time, no matter what.

Well as long as everyone agrees this is pretty bad news then fire away!! I gotta tell ya, for someone who loves to give fat people hell about being fat...super-including Ron Dayne...I think it's pretty low to insert one of those comments here. We could all be so lucky to have a thief make off with some prized possessions only to have him throw in a fat joke right before he left.

Again, the comment was made about what people thought when they saw the thread before opening, not about him being fat and robbed. It's not like I made a joke about the robber outrunning him or something. Lighten up. :barman:

This couldn't be more true GP. I had my house broken in two twice actually when I was in HS and early college. I found out who it was the first time and pretty much knew the 2nd time, but couldn't prove it but I pretty much knew. 9 times out of 10 it's "always" someone you know when you're house is broken into. Most of the time though, people don't want to believe that their friends would do that to them, but people usually break into a place when there is something in there that they want.

And this is just another major problem that continues to get worse and worse all over this country from the poor economy, to the illegals scattered all over the place, and from the liberals who don't want to punish criminals for their actions. The law makers need to do something at some point, because I'm so sick to death of talking to someone every single day about their car or house getting broken into.

SOLVE THE PROBLEM BY DEPORTING THIEVES OUT OF THIS COUNTRY!


Yeah, that may sound extreme and maybe it is, but I'm tired of thinking jail is the answer to ending robbers and burglars yearning to steal from hard working people. People typically don't even get a lot of time for theft unless it's with a deadly weapon and even then it's never for that long unless their criminal record is miles long.

I say after two felonies involving theft kick them out of the country for at least two years and if they're caught back in the country before being reinstated, then give them an automatic 5 years in prison. Let them go to some other country and steal over there. And when people can no longer live here because they're deported they'll quickly find out how hard it is to go live in another country and they'll most likely go to jail over there as well. Problem solved in my opinion though. Le them rot in some other country's jails, or live in some other country and they can steal over there. I'm sick to death of so many thieves being all over this country and the law makers not doing a damn thing about it.

Well, to be fair, his house and apartment were robbed. He also obviously just went through a divorce. You'd be remiss to suspect only the roommate when there's also at least one other obvious suspect.

Well it just seems like thievery is so easy now days and only gets worse. Jailing these basterds has been proven to not be the answer for like 20 years now. There are a lot of other countries that have extremely strict laws for people who steal even the slightest things. I'd have no problem at all with a public caining for thieves. I'd love that idea actually. I just don't see why people who are convicted for theft several times should be allowed to still live here. They just learn how to do it on a higher and better level when they go to jail and that doesn't seem to stop them when they get out either. Send them out of here and let them become some other country's problem.

I agree. I was just making a comment based on nothing really. Ha

Ever since my early 20's when I began raising my own, I've tried to live by the golden rule "do unto others as you would have them do unto you". Admittedly, I've failed a few times but watching how my kids treat people as they get older make me think it worked.

I must say, it's getting harder to follow as each day goes by.

How would that help? After 2 years they would come back and steal again? After 2 years they would be desperate for more since they have nothing to lose. What if France decides to deport thieves to America? Didn't solve anything.

I don't know that it would help for sure or not, but what we've been doing for thievery in this country for the last 30 years sure as hell hasn't worked and isn't currently working. Just jailing these guys for short terms just gets them in the system where they learn how to commit more crimes and better ways to steal and rob people. I think a lot of people might appreciate this country a lot more if they were no longer aloud to live here and become separated from their families because they wanted to take from others. Plus, it saves us money from having to pay the taxes to continually jail these thieves and criminals. Let whatever other country that is willing to accept them deal with it. There are a ton of other countries that have far worse penalties for stealing and theft and as a result they experience a hell of a lot less of it.


What if France decides to deport thieves to America? Didn't solve anything.

Whomever said that AMerica should have to take on other country's criminals? I sure as hell wouldn't support that and when I made the suggestion I wasn't suggesting that any other one country should take ours either. It would be completely up to the people being exiled to find their homes in whatever country they can, not on our government. That's the point. When people see how hard it is to fend for themselves in other countries where they have no other friends or family to help them out and just finding any place that would allow them to stay there legally sure as hell might give them a reality check about how easy they had it in America before they decided to break into homes and cars multiple times.

Something new and more stiff needs to be attempted as far as challenging criminals who rob and steal over and over from hard working citizens. The only people that should have any problems with much stiffer consequences for theft are people who steal themselves.

Yeah, they do thins like a public caining and other stuff like that in certian foreign countries. I think we should adopt policies similar to that for theft. Now I think cutting off someone's hands or caining them would be a little extreme and barbaric. I'm not suggesting that we go that far, but some major public humility would help as well. I'm just tired of paying tax dollars over and over for thieves who are going in and out of jail in this country for guys who are getting out and breaking into my car again and again or holding someone up in a parking lot. Theft is to easy now days for people and it only gets worse and worse. Our laws need to get a lot more strict on every type of theft and make it all felonies.
