    That kind of thing happens all the time with professional athletes. It's not like he went and robbed anyone at gunpoint like Maurice Clarett.

    Wonder what second rounder they could have gotten in 2004 with that tricky pick from Charlie.

    Does the name Steve McNair ring a bell. And he was also drunk . :rolleyes:
    Of course in NVille he was cleared of any wrongdoing. :penalty:

    Where Tony made his mistake is he got caught before making himself a household name superstar. Some of these guys could be accused of genocide and many fans would shrug it off as "childhood difficulties" etc.

    On the bright side, we just opened up a roster spot. :BananaWav

    As that AOL voice-guy says: "Goodbye." Hope he pulls it together fast, before it starts affecting his run at the Arena League MVP ice-bucket next year.

    I agree with the McNair comment--he got off because of who he was. Fortunately, the same can't be said for Fort Bend County juries when dealing with spousal abuse charges against Oiler quarterbacks who wore #1, right?
    Oh, wait--he was just trying to calm her down. :rolleyes:

    People carries weapons for many reasons. He is in the NFL. Maybe he needed to carry it for a staker or something. The suspended license is what gets me. I know it is a long wait at the DMV, but not the entire off-season. :)

    True...but it is not difficult at all to get a permit to carry a concealed weapon.

    So that makes it okay? No, that kind of thing happens all the time with people who are careless, irresponsible, stupid, or in some cases criminal. If this is true, I'll give Tony the benefit of the doubt and just say he's careless, irresponsible and stupid on this one.

    I am going to ask a stupid question here.. so I have a rifle that has been at the house for over 5 years, If I go take it to the gun range to get it sighted in.. does that mean I need to carry a permit? Just curious

    I think we can all agree that Hollings has been a bust but I'm not sure that illegal firearms possession and an expired license falls under the responsibility of casserly ...

    Tony Hollings is a very good person. Just got caught with something stupid. He has been very good to my daughter as well as to my family. I'm sure everything will work out.[​IMG]

    The article says suspended license, not expired. Why was his license suspended????
