    The Bengals will probably re-sign him now.

    he hired Bobby Bacala to carry out the shooting just so he can up his street cred

  11. dolphindad says: Aug 22, 2011 12:28 PM

    Pac-Man shot him

  14. 4evrnyt says: Aug 22, 2011 12:46 PM

    You’re all assuming he was outside of his house. I dont see it saying it wasn’t a burglary or home invasion.

  15. voiceofrealism says: Aug 22, 2011 12:49 PM

    How on Earth have I managed not to get shot all these years? If you’re a professional athlete there must be bullets flying around you constantly.

    ESPN Movies presents “Athletes and Bullets” -a biopic of former Bengal Antwan Odom, starring Delroy Lindo as Odom.

    Must’ve been at the Raiders / 49ers game

  21. logics71 says: Aug 22, 2011 1:04 PM

    This guy, like other NFL players with off -the- field issues has no real understanding of the privilege to play in the NFL. He was blessed to have experienced peoples dreams of being able to play in the NFL. Already trying to bounce back from injuries to play this year, gets himself shot. Now he most likely wont play this year. Probably wont get an opportunity next year either. What a waste of talent. Whether, his fault or not, he shouldn’t have been out at 4:30 am. Trouble is always around the corner at that hour.

    ESPN is reporting that Odom was shot during a home invasion. The suspect entered his house at 4:30 a.m. through an unlocked door. Two shots were fired one of which hit Odom in the thigh.

    All joking aside, lets not forget what happened with a previous home invasion (Sean Taylor).

    @logics71

    Get of your moral soap box for a moment & get the facts before you make a tool of yourself.

    Hint: It was a home invasion!

  24. theytukrjobs says: Aug 22, 2011 1:26 PM

    He was in his home when an intruder shot him. He didn’t accidentally shoot himself, nor was he part of a large altercation outside of a strip club, as was widely assumed.

    Reports are still hazy on whether or not he was wearing sweat pants. Stay tuned.

    You can take the homie out of the ‘hood, but you cant take the ‘hood out of the homie.

    Well, the racists are out in force today. A guy gets shot by criminals in his own home, and everyone assumes that HE is the criminal. Typical. Reminds me of all the posts on that Josina Anderson thread calling her “dumb”, “affirmative action hire” and all the other code words. Typical. Human nature will never change.

  32. johnstofa says: Aug 22, 2011 5:20 PM

    @crenfroe45:

    He was banging his buddy’s girlfriend at 4:30 and got shot. Home invasion my butt…that crap has gotten you shot at since guns were invented.

  33. axespray says: Aug 23, 2011 6:10 AM
