I strongly doubt it. He told his friends to hurry up and get to his house. He had Odin in the car, they stopped and in the time it takes from the crime scene to his home, they got there and only 3 poeple got out of the car.

If true, at least it gets released before he's franchised and quickly signed the tender. That would guarantee him the franchise money even if suspended ala Greg Hardy.
But it's strange that Florio said that all of the major insiders have heard about the video for "months" but couldn't get it. No...

It's not that it's a lawless place; it's just that most people don't go to the trouble of a civil suit.

It was one of my favorite ways to get beads when I used to go to parades. I'd be toward the back and keep my back to the parade. Of course, a drunk/fool at least once in few floats would try to smack me with a bag of beads. If I snatched it out, I would hold it toward the douche who tried to hit me ...

Harrison needs to wait.
My choices: (new rules are at least 4 but not more than 8 total elected):
1.Junior Seau - One of the greatest LBs of all-time
2.Tim Brown - 19,000+ all purpose yards
3.Orlando Pace - Legit Stud at LT
4.Will Shields - 12 Pro Bowls, started 223 out of 224 careers games
