Former Ram arrested for fraud

Fullback James Hodgins, a member of the Greatest Show on Turf that won Super Bowl XXXIV, now faces the possibility of spending time in the Big House.

According to Robert Salonga of the Contra Costa Times, authorities claim that Hodgins swindled victims out of thousands of dollars by renting vacant homes via the Internet.

Prosecutors have opted not to file formal charges yet because more evidence regarding the size of the scam is being compiled.  “This is going to be pretty
big,” Oakley, California police detective Sean Eriksen (and she) said.

Hodgins spent four years with the Rams, from 1999 through 2002, appearing in 55 games, with 20 starts.  He joined the Cardinals in 2003, playing every game and starting eight.  He spent two more seasons with the Cardinals, making only one game appearance.  Hodgins ended his career in 2006 with the Jets.

    Speaking of fraud, what’s gonna happen to your site when Comcast buys NBC?
    Olberdouche is out, most likely, but can Keith protect you for the rest of his time at NBC?
    Gotta imagine they will look at that Football Night in America show and decide it’s bizarre and stupidly expensive, and cut the fat.
    I appreciate that show when they go on about global warming, it’s hilarious. They use about 300KW just to light Olby’s face…

    Because he won a Super Bowl with them.
    How else would he flesh out the article about a minor player with no other career highlights?

    You suck, Florio. It’s not always easy to make a Michael Scott joke. In fact, it can be very hard at times.
    That’s what she said!!
    (Or, if you actually have a sense of humor and are not wearing a wig, it can come easy).
    That’s what she said!!
    See, that’s how it’s done, dummy.
