Steven Jackson responds to allegations

Rams running back Steven Jackson has issued a statement regarding the domestic violence allegations reported earlier today by TMZ.com.

The statement was forwarded to us by agent Steve Caric.

“It’s disheartening that I have to address any alleged allegations 10
months later, but I have read the accusations made by Supriya Harris, and
they are untrue,” Jackson said.  “The accusations are especially hurtful because those who
truly know me know that those actions would be out of character for me. 
Miss Harris is the mother of my son, a son that I love and that I
willingly support emotionally and financially.  I will address this matter
thoroughly through the appropriate avenues, but not through the media.”

Jackson has not been arrested or charged with any crime.

  1. “Jackson has not been arrested or charged with any crime.”
    I realize you folks are gonna have a field day with this, but please read that last part again before you go ape sh!t.

  2. At least we can take heart that Steven Jackson’s lawyer and/or agent didn’t write this. Either that, or he needs to find better representation! Alleged allegation – so some person is making the claim that some other person is making a claim that he did these things? I’m believing more and more in the mantra that it is better to remain silent and let people thing you are a fool than to open your mouth and confirm it…

  3. Jackson was also quoted as;
    Save the drama, baby mama, the presidents barak obama, and i’m allowed to cause you trauma.
    Word !
    Pants on the ground !

    I was thinking the exact same thing, he definitely had no help on that one.
    It often shows a fine command of the language to not say anything.

  5. I smell a gold digger here……how long before we hear that she tried to “negotiate a settlement but in the end was “forced” to file charges”.

  6. You people are idiots.
    allege |əˈlej|
    verb [ reporting verb ]
    claim or assert that someone has done something illegal or wrong, typically without proof that this is the case
    allegation |ˌaliˈgā sh ən|
    noun
    a claim or assertion that someone has done something illegal or wrong, typically one made without proof
    Yes I know I posted the same definition twice but the difference is that alleged is a verb and allegation is a noun.
    “It’s disheartening that I have to address any alleged allegations 10 months later”
    So basically he is saying it is sad that he has to address the false accusations of an event that never occurred.

    I wish you would follow your guidelines.

  7. If it is untrue then it will go away, if its true we will find out soon enough. Why don’t we all assume innocents until we know any better?

    Please try a little harder when attempting to sound like you believe you are very intelligent.

    But you’re incorrect. Steven Jackson used the adjective form, alleged, not the past active form of the word allege. So what your haughty self should have done is posted this definition:
    1. declared or stated to be as described; asserted: The alleged murderer could not be located for questioning.
    2. doubtful; suspect; supposed: The alleged cure-all produced no results when it was tested by reputable doctors.
    The word alleged is not synonymous with the word false. Anybody with half a neuron knows what he meant to say, but there is certainly a difference between what he said and what he meant to say.

    Sorry I posted the wrong definition of Alleged. He was indeed using the adjective form but my argument is still the same regardless.
    alleged |əˈlejd| |əˈlɛdʒd| |əˈlɛdʒd|
    adjective [ attrib. ]
    (of an incident or a person) said, without proof, to have taken place or to have a specified illegal or undesirable quality : the alleged conspirators.
    “It’s disheartening that I have to address any alleged allegations 10 months later”
    Again he is stating that it is sad he has to address something “said, without proof” to a “claim or assert that someone has done something illegal”.
    I put the definition parts in quotations to prove my point further. It is the closest I could get to using color crayons.
