    Stories like this make it seems as though all NFL players are involved in lawsuits, drinking, drugs, and having kids out of wedlock. When the great majority of players are living normal lives and doing great things in their communties. Raising money for the tsunami victims (which was posted..good job) going to Africa to build wells to obtain clean water, speaking to charities etc….The Turd Watch should be balanced out with a Good Guy Watch. The Good Guy watch would have to be reset everyday. Something to think about…………………

    Oh look…A recording studio….hmmmmm…A professional athlete who thinks he’s a rap star….How original….I guess he spent 6 figures, and realized Dr.Suess wrote the same lyrics nearly 5 decades ago…..Who was the previous tenant? Ron Artest?

    What the hell is wrong with these guys? Do they just think that everything should be free for them? Talk about a sense of entitlement!

    Surprise SURPRISE.
    and yet another player that doesn’t pay bills. How can these players cry about getting whats “owed to them” when they don’t pay what’s owed to others?

    As I said numerous times before, coaches, parents, “advisors”, etc. have not held rhese kids accountable for their actions since they were in grade school and now look at what we have roaming through society. A band of people who believe the laws and rules do not apply to them, and that they are entitled to whatever they want.

    He overpaid , the industry is way down. I could’ve leased him a studio w/u47’s and Neve’s for 10% of what he overpaid.He was sandbagged.
