That'll make my friend Tommy very happy. That will also make the ones who like to sack the back very happy!
The definition of "Pyrrhic victory":
Aaron Hernandez, ex-NFL player, kills himself in prison
Was being discussed in the news thread Chris if you want to take a look. Bad craic all round.
I can't see it in "This is the thread for news".
I agree it is bad news all round but I do wonder what brought this on after he was successfully defended in the last case. He only got an additional 5 years (although I have to admit I don't know how long the additional murder sentence was).
Sorry Chris, my mistake, it's here -
Life in prison with no possibility of parole.
There is speculation in the Boston area that he killed himself because if you die when your case is in appeal, then the guilty verdict gets thrown out. That makes the civil case much more difficult and could mean his young daughter keeps his money.
On Russillo & Kannell, They talked to a lawyer who works at Espn now and she said exactly that. Also the civil case has a 5 million dollar war chest that reverts to his daughter if it is not needed so that also benefits his family if the case gets dropped
What a nice guy!
Yeah, I guess it's nice that he's looking out for his young girl by hanging himself, but it's also taking the money away from the family of a person he murdered execution style.
Whenever you follow the NFL for 5 minutes you almost need to take a shower after.
Schedules are out and I'm delighted!
They open at home on my birthday against the Los Angeles ( ) Chargers. I don't see any major problems.
If only we had a quarterback...
I am glad there hasn't been a long tangent here about Aaron Hernandez...
No offense, but rough sports like football, boxing, MMA, etc. have some violent guys playing and being star athletes who aren't wrapped too tight in the head. Just saying...
It's why I play football Al...
