Let The Excuses Rain Down Upon Us

Plaxico Burress has been indicted.

Now, all that is left is for the message boards to be bombarded with more of the same stupid posts. You know the ones: "Plax made a mistake ... Plax deserves a second chance ... Plax has a right to make a living .... Who are you to judge Plax? You're not perfect".

No. I'm not perfect. But I've never fired off a gun in a nightclub, killed someone with a car, committed other felonious activities.

Rob Toxin says this to all of you who make excuses for Michael Vick, Plaxico Burress, Donte Stallworth, Leonard Little and the list goes on and on.

Throwing into double coverage is a mistake. Robbing a liquor store is a crime. There is a difference.

Sports fans, our professional sports are in shambles. And that will not change until we stop making excuses for criminals just because they happen to have athletic ability. Nothing says one must be a felon just because one plays sports. Plenty of athletes play sports and have respect for the law. Rob Toxin loves to drill holes into the prima donna that is T.O., but T.O. has done something many athletes have failed to do lately. T.O. has avoided being arrested!

Maybe because T.O. doesn't go out and commit felonies?

And one last thing, all you who demanded that Michael Vick get a second chance: Are you going to say the same thing when Tim Donaghy gets out of prison? Are you going to demand that the NBA give him his referee job back?


Then don't you dare call me a hypocrite.
