Plaxico Gets Two Years


#1

If he's a good boy he will serve twenty months.(profootballtalk.com)

I almost feel sorry for the guy. Glad the Steelers dumped him.


#2

it was pretty much a given and I don't think the people that gave it to him (minus the DA) wanted him to get a full 2 years, but thats the price you pay for LAWS with absolute sentences. Want's the point in having judges?


#3

It doesn't add up. Stallworth killed a man and did a few days.

He carries a gun it slides down his pant leg, accidently goes off an he gets shot. I figure the punishment he gave himself should come into play. That said, who takes a gun into a night club?

Burress and Pac Man's boys I guess...they just the ones who got caught.


#4

2 years really isn't that bad for an ILLEGAL firearm going off in a public place. Lucky if you ask me.

Plus he'll have plenty of time to write one of those 'For Dummies' books.

I think he can name it... "How to f*** up a $35 Million dollar NFL contract after winning the Super Bowl in New York for Dummies"


#5

JGerman - you forgot to mention... not only did he kill the man... it was driving DRUNK. he got out earlier than the 30 days to boot.

ONLY! my friends... in America.


#6

he shot himself and he's going to jail for it

lol?


#7

I think Stallworths lawyers already got his probation reduced on top of the original bullshit sentence. Not sure I would get that consideration in the same circumstances. Sucks to be poor.


#8

Plaxico should have hired someone from the same firm as Stallworths lawyer or something, haha.


#9

Absolutely heinous sentencing.

Fucking New Yorkers.


#10

I swear these NFL babies are so spoiled with their salaries and contracts. If I made money like that, I would be so clear of any illegal bullshit, and just enjoy the ride.


#11

I asked some of my international friends about what money can buy (in terms of justice) in their home countries. Compared to that, America is actually one of the strictest countries.


#12

x2

fame and all that attention and "yessir" stuff must make you lose a bit of perspective though


#13

Nugga's gotta be armed dawg


#14

Funny, I was talking to my wife about just that thing and came to the opposite conclusion. If I made money like that I'd take advantage of the fact that I can at least pretend that I'm a free man. Guess money doesn't fix it all though.

If he doesn't get picked up by an nfl team after he gets out he can make a rap CD like fifty cent!


#16

Stallworth also had a financial settlement which helped.


#17

He had to make conscious effort and follow through with a number of actions to carry that gun into a nightclub.

He worked hard to get that sentence and deserves every second of it.


#18

stallworth had to make the conscious decision to booze up right before he got behind that wheel. does that make him any less of a felon?

someone shot himself in the leg and had to go to prison for it. thats insult to injury. someone else killed an old man and got a slap on the wrist. that, ladies and gentlemen, is the beauty of the american justice system.


#19

Ha HA a gun ain't a fashion accessory for a fake ass thug.


#20

You said it man, what a fricken mess. Wasn't vick tourturing animals to death cause they lost their fights?I don't think he didn't even do two years in jail. I think it would really increase ticket sales if the eagles tortured his ass like he did to the dogs if he loses a game!
