Bad taste to use "Smack my Bitch up" as the music for the highlight video don't you think?

He dragged his girlfriend down 3 flights of stairs by the hair .... so....this is probably for the best.

Let's keep it real- Lawrence Phillips was a troubled soul; but hard to feel sorry for him- no one to blame but himself. He was simply a horrible human being. My comments harsh? Like I said, I call it as I see it!

For those wondering how he wound up in prison and didn't want to click the link....

In 2009, he was sentenced to 31 years in prison for two separate incidents — driving his car into three teenagers and assaulting an ex-girlfriend.

Sad.
