Okay, get this. Remember that guy Plaxico Burress, the star wide reciever who plays for the Giants. He shot himself in the leg. No big deal. But he didn’t have a license to be carrying that gun in concealment. Big deal. So he was charged with “felony gun possession.” And the Giants are going to penalize him for it. GOOD FOR THEM!
This man is a criminal, at least that’s what the police are saying. He shouldn’t get $1 million dollars as a bonus, since he’s a criminal! Sure he didn’t kill anybody or steal anything, but he broke the law, making him a criminal. It’s like a tatoo; it’s permenant. The player’s union is getting upset because a criminal is being withheld $1 million dollars? Putting it like that makes it sound different, doesn’t it?
“Oh, but he isn’t a criminal, he’s an athlete, and he makes lots of money, and he’s really good, so you shouldn’t take his money away!” I wonder why they’re defending him? That’s gonna give the union a bad rep, if he’s convicted. I can see the headlines now: “The National Football League’s Player Union defends man carrying illegally concealed gun.” If for no other reason, let the Giants do what they want with their own players to save your own reputation! Besides, the guy makes tons of money, do you really think $1 million is going to hurt him? I mean, he makes millions and millions and millions of dollars per year, do you think $1 million upsets him? Crazy world, ain’t it?
