    ESPN is reporting that Barret Robbins was shot twice, ans is in critical condition, by Miami are police last night. The shooting took place as the police officers ere investigating a buglary.

    Sad end for a guy with some serious miedical issues.

    That was the running back for Cincinatti. His name was Stanley _________? and was found in a closet with a crack pipe the night before or morning of the super bowl some years back.

    It was also Barret Robbins for the Raiders prior to the Tampa Bay game.

    Just not a crack pipe. Mexican drinking binge?

    It would be interesting to find out if Robbins ever did anything about his disease since he disappeared right before the Super Bowl a couple of years ago.

    From the stories I remember, he forgot to take his medicine. When you do that, the symptoms can come on pretty quickly. He was seen in a bar the night before drunk off his tail and crying uncontrollably.

    If anybody remember Justin Strzelczyk from the Pittsburgh Steelers back in the mid-90s, ESPN just did a story on him. Apparently he was suffering from the same symptoms of bipolar. Ended up driving himself into a tanker truck at 90 MPH.

    I wouldn't wish this disease on anybody.

    Sad .. the downward spiral continues for Robbins.

    "Former Oakland Raiders center Barret Robbins was charged Wednesday with three counts of attempted felony murder...."
