I’m sorry.. but I call Bull Pucky.
I get a lot of grief because I have been saying that sure, the guy did a horrible horrible thing and did the time that the current legal system allows and now he goes back to his job, just like every other American. I don’t think athletes should be held to a higher standard because they are in the public eye. Everyone should be equal in the eyes of the law.. that’s just how I feel and I know a lot of you feel differently. If he wasn’t punished enough then the system failed.

That being said, the dude turned his life around and worked with the Human Society (don’t get me started on them) because HE HAD TO. This was not a decision on his part. He had no choice.
Bull Pucky.. it stinks.
