Your new avatar is irresponsible as well. You can cause others to experience wretching and whatnot. Funshine Bear is right out as well.

I have to agree with TC on this one. Is he acting like any guy would in the circumstances? I dont know. Maybe.

But he isn't any guy. He, and all NFL players, should be held to a higher standard.

We don't hear about the stupid stuff you or I do, either. Because no one gives a river barrier how fast we drive or how much $$$ we spend in a bar. I'm still not sure why we care about Mario's driving or spending habits.

As far as I know, Mario didn't sign up for displaying his private life on a reality internet show. Had there been consequences to Williams actions, we would and should know. There weren't any, and that's where the line of public concern should be drawn.

But when you make a complete fool out of yourself in front of everyone it is all out there for people to always remind you of the time you stuck your foot in your mouth or forgot to use your brain.

If you are going to drive at incredibly dangerous speeds on a busy interstate while you are being filmed by two people at once...you are open to public criticism if you ask me. All it took was for one guy to not notice a 150 mph blur and change lanes at the last second and blam....you got dead people....on film. If you don't want the public to pick you apart...don't do dangerous or illegal stunts on film.

So it's OK to do drive dangerously? Just not on film? Does that make any sense to you?

We've rubbernecked and there was no blood or broken bones. Time to drive on.

I don't exactly see where I approve driving at that speed one single time in this thread. You said, "Mario didn't sign up for displaying his private life on a reality internet show."

...and I said if you don't want us to pick it apart...don't put it out there. You telling me to 'move on' won't change my opinion that it is incredibly irresponsible to drive like that on a busy interstate.

As a general statement, of course that type of driving is irresponsible. That's not the point. Why should Mario become the poster boy for driving dangerously? Because of a 5 minute video posted on the internet? Again, this is something about Mario we have no business knowing.

He participated in a video partaking in illegal and irresponsible behavior but you are right, I shouldn't condem it cause he's a Texan and he is our 1st round pick....his irresponsible behavior should not count.

Go Texans! I hope Mario doesn't kill your Mom tonight because she doesn't see a car going 150 mph in her blind spot.

Wow. I thought you were past making out of line remarks like that. "Don't get personal" has always been the #1 rule on the boards you've run. That shouldn't change here.

Take a look at the forum title. Texans Talk Football talk only please. This has what to do with football? TC posted a line about Mario's foot, and went into internet papparazzi mode concerning Williams' car, grill, night club activities, and driving habits. Is that going to be invited here? Maybe people following AJ & Dunta around at clubs and posting pictures of them drunk? Are you planning on fostering that, as well?

If you hadn't brought my Mom into this, I would have just PMed you. But, I think everyone should weigh in on this, now.

I didn't cross any line...it's amazing you guys think like you do....I'm not a hypocrite either. I've never driven any car anything close to 150 MHP on a busy interstate. I don't think some of you guys grasp how fast and how dangerous that is.

It's not personal. It could be my Mom....just used an example. I think that people kill other people when they drive dangerous and reckless. My mom, your mom...my sister, your cousin...we are all related to someone. I don't care if it is Mario Williams or Joe Q Public....driving like that will end up putting someone at risk and the selfish behavior you guys condone just because he is your sports hero is disturbing and sick.

The race video has been removed from YouTube. They get tons of race video but they take them off because they don't want to encourage idiots taping themselves racing on public roads.

I do think that given the new NFL Personal Conduct policy that is really really vague, and the fact that at least one of the videos showed dangerous behavior, it is football related. If one of your players violates the personal conduct policy or gets seriously injured doing stupid stuff, that effects your entire season. Lots of recent examples of that.

In other words, I am guessing this is information that his coaches would want to know about their first pick in the draft of 2006.

As for the mom comment, I didn't take it as a yomama kinda statement but rather as a way to personalize the issue of racing on public streets. Things can easily get misinterpreted in writing.
