I am sure you have all heard about the NY Giants' Plaxico Burress...

Will he have a job? Will it be with the Giants? Should he be suspended?

What is your opinion?

You can take the thug out of the hood, but you can't take the hood out of the thug. We see this all too often. You're worth millions of dollars and you can't keep yourself out of trouble? If you cant stay clean then maybe you ought to sell rocks instead of play professional sports. :idk:

He's a fuckinng tool who let his ego get bigger than the game. He still might have a job in the NFL but probably not this year and not with the Giants. As a Giants fan I say fuck him we don't need him we are 3-0 without him and have plenty of recievers behind him that are just as good

I hear a lot of this type of response from Giants fans... I am a Cowboy fan (start your boo'ing now...) and have the same feelings for Adam "Pac-man" Jones...

I think both should have been stomach pancakes... would have been better for society...

I agree the giants are deep at reciever. Smith and hixon are comming into their own and manningham hasnt even gotten a chance to shine yet, so eli def has options.

I think the league will suspend him and if not the giants will. I think they should do it now so its less of a distraction going inot the post season. Given he has a past record with the team and the league they will go after him bu twill get a ton of second chances like tank williams and pacman jones:idk:

Probably wasted and was showing it off. He plead innocent. Will claim it wasn't his and he was trying to unload it or some shit. I think the embarassment alone is punishment enough!

these guys are fuck'n retarded... and you can thank the players union for keeping their stupidity in the lime light...

I have no doubt that 80% of the fuckups in pro sports would be either tossed on their ass or would straighten up if the players union didn't have so much power in keeping these players in the league and being paid...

they're the biggest criminals in all of sports IMO

I think there should be real accountability for these assholes... whether they like it or not... admit it or not... they are role models for kids. I'm not generally a 'what about the kids' kind of guy, but for fuck's sake...

You get paid millions of dollars a year to play a fucking game that we chose to play at recess when we could have been doing a million other things... I think anytime one of these jackasses pulls a retard move like this they should be immediately banned from the league permanently. You want to be a jackass your entire life? Better get used to saying, "you want fries with that?"

I agree. It's time to start treating pro athletes and shit celebrities the same as the rest of us. Nicole Richie gets wasted and decides to drive the wrong way down a major LA highway and she gets shit for punishment. All of these asshats need to start feeling some pain for their stupidity. The rest of us don't get fourth, fifth and sixth chances to make their lives right and continue earning a paycheck (that's a miniscule fraction of what these people make).

MTV's True Life...when He was a Steeler...Back when He Began his Shitty Career in the NFL and Sucked it the Fuck up. I'm not saying he doesnt have some sort of talent to catch the ball...But For fucks sake...he was HORRIBLE when he played for Pittsburgh...and first it was "I dont have to practice" You dont? Your on a fucking team who ALL practice together and YOU dont have to? If I was on that team and my Star receiver didnt practice...I'd beat his ass. He's not that good at the game.

And now this? Shit makes me laugh...What a Fucking Toolbox

Smart move on the giants part. eliminate the distractions fo rthe rest of the season and hes out for the playoffs too. I am sure his tune will change too now that hes prolly going to loose about 25 million dollars.

I see they also suspended a doc at the hospital for not reporting the GSW. Scary part is I work with a few docs that dont report every GSW either:whistle:

Heard on the radio that giants brass were aware soon after it happened and sent him to a hospital where a doctor who was a "friend of the team" was mysteriously working or showed up at to treat the injury. This could get real messy now if this is true and comes to light.

NEW YORK (AP)—It started as a typical Friday night at the Latin Quarter: exclusive guest list, $200 bottles of Moet champagne and well-dressed clientele lining up to pay a $30 cover charge to party at the swank Manhattan club.

Then a few very, very important people rolled up in a black Cadillac Escalade: New York Giant stars Plaxico Burress and Antonio Pierce. The two sauntered inside, heading for the VIP section amid the pulsing merengue and hip-hop, Burress with a loaded, illegal gun tucked into the waistband of his track pants.

Within an hour, the Latin Quarter would be a crime scene and the center of a drama that has transfixed the sports world and left Burress’ career in jeopardy.

One week later, authorities are still trying to piece together details of what happened that night. But interviews with investigators and those connected to the case paint a picture of chaos, extraordinary secrecy and a frustrating hunt for answers by the police department.

ADVERTISEMENT

Burress and Pierce showed up at the club at 1:20 a.m. Burress bypassed the line of patrons and got into the club despite the semiautomatic gun in his pants and ordered a drink.

Around 1:50 a.m., as Burress fumbled with the glass in his hand, the .40-caliber Glock slipped down his leg, and as he grabbed at it, he accidentally pulled the trigger and shot himself in the thigh. Witnesses reported hearing a “pop” as his legs started to quiver and the pistol dropped from his pant leg to the floor.

“Take me to a hospital,” Burress said, according to investigators

Despite the gunfire and blood, no one at the club called police. In fact, investigators say, no one reported the incident at all. Not the players, nor the hospital where he was treated, even though the law states gunshot wounds must be reported.

After the gun slipped to the floor, a club security officer grabbed it, unloaded it and held it while Pierce helped his injured, bleeding teammate to the street and back into the Escalade. He helped Burress, shaking from pain, into the back seat. Pierce hopped in the front with an unknown woman in the driver’s seat. As they started to pull away, a club security guard came to the Escalade’s window.

“What do you want me to do with this?” he asked, referring to the pistol, according to police. Pierce threw it in the glove compartment of the Escalade, police said, then called team trainer Ronnie Barnes. The trainer told him to take Burress to New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center, about 20 blocks away.

Pierce’s attorney, Michael Bachner, said his client had no idea his teammate had a gun until it went off, and his top priority at the time was to help his friend.

“Given the extraordinary circumstances of that evening, (Pierce) acted responsibly in trying to save what could have been the life of a friend,” Bachner said.

The SUV sped to the hospital, arriving at 2:04 a.m. and Burress was registered under the alias Harris Smith. It’s not known why that alias was chosen.

Dr. Josyann Abisaab was working her normal night shift at the hospital and treated Burress. As the doctor patched him up and they realized the wound wasn’t serious, Barnes arrived and spoke to Burress. At some point, the Giants alerted NFL security officials, saying the team left it to the league to alert police.

But police say the league and the team were not initially forthcoming, stalling the investigation. They have since been more cooperative, Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said.

“We want people to report gunshots as quickly as possible. We want people to be good citizens. It’s an obligation of all of us to report gun shots,” Kelly said Friday.

Hours passed as the first media reports of the shooting hit the airwaves. Acting on the rumors, police started canvassing local hospitals looking for signs. The NFL says its security department contacted police; NYPD officials say league officials called a precinct about 10:30 a.m. wondering whether anyone made a 911 call related to the shooting, but provided no details.

By 1 p.m. Saturday, Burress was discharged and on his way to his Totowa, N.J., home. Pierce went back to New Jersey as well, boarding a 1 p.m. team flight for Washington.

At the same time, police were hunting for clues about the mysterious shooting. They were learning details from media reports and not getting answers. Police say the NFL called fishing for information at one point, but didn’t divulge any details about what they knew.

Finally, at 2:30 p.m., they learned Burress had in fact been hospitalized. But details beyond that were fuzzy.

The frenzy over the shooting intensified Sunday.

Burress laid low as Pierce and the Giants took the field in Washington against the Redskins, beating their division rival 23-7 on a dreary, rainy day.

All the while, reporters gathered outside the New Jersey home of Burress’ lawyer, Benjamin Brafman. Burress’ attorney announced his client would report to the 17th Precinct.

He arrived at the precinct Monday morning, surrounded by reporters and fans snapping pictures with cell phones. He was booked, led away in handcuffs, taken to the courthouse and arraigned on charges of criminal possession of a weapon. He pleaded not guilty, posted $100,000 bail and left.

“He is standing tall. He is a mature adult,” Brafman said at the time, stressing his client is innocent until proven guilty. “I think any professional athlete in this situation would be concerned.”

The Escalade was impounded earlier in the week as police searched for blood and gun residue. Police sought out Pierce to find out what he knew and whether he tried to cover up the shooting.

The story was front-page news almost every day throughout the week and became a bit of a fixation with Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who has waged a relentless fight against illegal guns. He expressed outrage on several occasions at Burress, the team, the league and the hospital. He even cracked a joke about the safety of being around the Giants.

On Friday, police questioned the doctor who treated Burress. They also spoke to Pierce, who met with investigators after practicing with the team ahead of the Giants’ home game on Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Burress will not be on the field, and no one knows when or if he will return.

Suspended for the remainder of the season, the 31-year-old faces a felony weapons possession charge that requires a mandatory minimum 3 1/2 years in prison.

Many questions remain unanswered: What else happened that night that hasn’t been revealed? Will Pierce face charges? Will Burress be able to avoid time behind bars? And will he face additional suspensions next year?

That decision will be up to the NFL, whose office is just a couple blocks from the nightclub where Burress’ career might have come to an end during a night on the town.

and did you see ESPN did a little story on him... about how he is off the field... WTF... will they just let this shit die... the dudes a fuck'n bitch... his ass should be booted out of the NFL along with all the other premadona problem children and forgotten about.

These athletes are given the world on a silver platter and they refuse to change their act and become responsible productive members of society... instead they act like more is owed to them and that the entire world is their play ground.

Fuck them it's the #1 reason I do not watch pro sports...

amen brother..

they have no concept of reality - most of us bust our ass every day for pennies on their mega millions.. most of us put in an honest day's work for an honest day's pay.. these motherfuckers are given a great gift and just aren't very grateful for it.. not that i want to see this shitty economy get any worse but if it does i hope the stands empty and their purses are emptied so they get a little dose of reality - watch how many of them jump ship when they are playing for like $20k a year or something..
