How many cigarettes can you get in trade for a Super Bowl ring?
Wow - pretty stiff (twss). What did Stallworth get for killing a guy?
Edit: after reading the article more thoroughly, I see the actual sentencing hasn't taken place yet. I assume they'll stick to the plea agreement, but I wouldn't be surprised if that turns out to be a bad assumption.
Well, come on now look at the situation. He didn't shoot himself while killing a guy....
Between Burress and Stallworth the sentences seem to be more than a bit out of whack for the offenses. IMO, it would have been more in line if Stallworth got the two years and Burress should have got the 29 days.
What would happen if he shot himself while killing a guy at a dogfight....probation to 60 years?
Things is if it went to trial the charge carried a minimum mandatory 3 year sentence.
I'd have to check but I think that's a death penalty...
Thought of Burress when I came across this piece. Both of them probably graduated (or maybe not) from the same School of Mentally Ill Equipped.
The gun charge in New York carries a mandatory sentence.
The charge in Florida does not.
If I were Plax I'd be a bit more concerned about my other ring. What a dumba$$.
Just pointing out that the myriad laws at different locations/levels of the justice system result in decisions that appear out of whack.
His career is over.
I dunno, how do you get 2 years for an accidental, self-inflicted wound ?
You forgot to mention that Stallworth is also on probation for a long time paid restitution to the family and can never ever drive again.
Carrying a pistol in NY is illegal and carries a mandatory minimum sentence of 3 years. He isn't being punished for being a dumbass but for violating the law.
Actually he is being punished for being a dumbass, because if he hadn't of somehow managed to shoot himself nobody probably would have even known he was packing.
Prediction? The Giants will SUCK HARD this year exposing Eli Manning as the OVER RATED/OVER PAID FLUKE that he is. Say what you want about Burress, but as long as he was on the field you had to have two guys on him. Over rated Eli loses that...and he's in for a world of hurt.
They drafted Nicks 1st and Ramses Barden from Cal Poly in the 3rd. I think the drop-off won't be so much, especially if Barden hones that 6'6'' frame into a redzone threat. Oh yeah and the Giants running game is sweet and the defense is still a monster...
Eli may be overrated but he's certainly got a few cushions to fall on....
