Laws are different by state. New York City is one of the worst places to get caught holding a gun like Burress did.

Is there an echo in here?

Bowers was arrested in New York.

Isn't this the second NFL player this offseason to bring a gun to an airport?

You sure it wasn't the fact that his knee compares to that of a 75 year old man?


no, he is right. Teams knew that Bowers would be arrested for a 2nd degree gun crime in the offseason after his sophmore season, and that is why they passed on him.

It is amazing what scout's can do these days...simply amazing.

just messing with you Thanatos...I think I know what you meant

Eh, it all depends on whether or not he gets a judge who wants to "make an example" of him because he's an NFL player.

NFL players getting worse sentences than average person who commits the same crime? Where's Da'Quan's trial at, the Twilight Zone?

What are these guys thinking? Why would you take a gun with you? You would think these guys would learn this by now.

From what little research I just did (i.e. the googles). Queens is the worst place to do it:

Quote:
In the Bronx, as few as 31 percent were imprisoned. In Brooklyn the rate was 41 percent; in Staten Island it was 47 percent; in Manhattan it was 68 percent; and in Queens it was 76 percent.

Didn't Shaun Rogers do this same thing like 3-4 years ago?

yeah exactly.

Has he ever got in trouble with the law before, or is this a first time?

Does Tampa Bay cut him? Its not like he's doing anything there anyways it seems.

Was going to post the same thing. It's happened before, it'll happen again. It's a stupid oversight, but I seriously doubt anybody is intentionally bringing a gun onto a plan. Dumb mistake to make, but I don't expect there to be a huge fallout from it.
