When your player is a dumbass
Drop it like it's hot, drop it like it's hot
If he runs over pedestrians
Drop it like it's hot, drop it like it's hot
When he has no hamstring
Drop it like it's hot, drop it like it's hot
When he's under the influence
Drop it like it's hot, drop it like it's hot

He was driving round Miami early one morn
With a blunt in his mouth and his hair in rows of corn
Life is so good when under his hood
A bump in the road that some family will mourn.

When the police detain you a few days later
Drop it like it's hot, drop it like it's hot
Call the NAACP and claim Black h8er
Drop it like it's hot, drop it like it's hot
Jesse Jackson will be your savior
Drop it like it's hot, drop it like it's hot
Get used to prison b!tch flavor
Drop it like it's hot, drop it like it's hot

Exactly. I'm not going to pass judgment on the guy until it has been fully investigated. I feel awful for the poor guy and his family no matter what the circumstances, but it's a tad unfair to point the fickle finger of blame at Stallworth when we just don't know the entire story just yet.

It might not be Stallworth's fault.

If he was sober, then the most he can be charged with is vehicular manslaughter.

Lets wait and see what the facts are before we go jumping to conclusions. This sounds more like it was a very unfortunate accident and not anything worse.

SteelersGirlTN7
03-14-2009, 10:47 PM
As much as I dislike the Browns, I cannot pass judgment yet..... .

Unfortunately, I can speak from personal experience. One night I was coming home from work from downtown Nashville,a different way than usual, due to traffic. This other direction led me through a not so good area of town. So, I was traveling the road, through all green lights, and never changed lanes. I got to a point of the road where there were no street lights, and it was pitch black out. The guy was just standing in the middle of the road, I don't know where he came from, because he wasn't moving (which would have made him easier to see). He was a very dark individual, with dark clothes on. I didn't see him till the last minute, and he made no attempt to get out the way. I swerved into the oncoming lane, and might have killed myself trying to miss him. Thankfully, no one was coming the other direction. All I did to him was knock him over to the sidewalk. It wasn't a bad hit, as there was zero impact to my car (which I wasn't worried about at the time). Just saying for explanation purposes. So I hurried out of the car, and someone had run out from the building on the corner and was calling 911. I walked over to him, and he wouldn't even talk to me. I was just like, OMG are you ok? I called the hospital later (about 3 hrs) and they said they had already released him. All he had was a broken leg and a bump on his head. I actually felt bad for him, until like 2 days later, when he called me. Tennessee police reports at the time had all parties information on them that were involved. Basically, he sees a young girl driving a new car and saw dollar signs. He had no ID on him at the scene and like I said, it was project/low income area. When he called, he was like, this is Willie, the guy you hit, he told me he wanted $500 or he'd see me in court. I told him I was sorry, but that's what I have insurance for. No one was cited on the scene. Basically, he was jaywalking, but I think the police let it go, because he was hurt.

So, anyway, you just never know what people are thinking. If Stallworth was at fault, then I say throw the book at him, but I'll reserve my judgment till all the details come out.

calsteeler
03-14-2009, 11:15 PM
I am certainly with those who say wait til all the facts come out. However, there are some that I've seen already. One, according to a unnamed police official, the man who was killed was not off the durb very far. Two, this WAS in the South Beach area of miami, that area is not known for it's tea drinking retiries, ah, not unless it's Long Island tea :-)


However, as it goes to Sralworth being Intoxicated, I hate to say this but it might be better for him if he was. I mean if the death was his fault I mean. Believe it or not, when you are of a deminished capasity, your Attorney has more ammo to get you off. However, if one is sober, and aware of his faculties, then in the eyes of the Law it is a much more egregious offense, and harder for a lawyer to defend. Wreckless endangerment, along with Vehicular manslaughter, and depraved indifferance are ALL chargers that can be attached to a driver who kills a pedestrian and who is NOT drunk. Those charges cannot be applied in most cases when a driver is impaired.


Sad, but true. Lets just wait to see what comes out further. But either way, my heart goes out to the family of that man.

This is the latest update from the AP on the incident down below








The only new information of note in the latest article is that a witness claims that the incident occurred after Stallworth tried to beat a red light by going around a vehicle that already had stopped at the light.  If that?s the case, Stallworth might be in big trouble even if his blood alcohol content was below the legal limit.





Now fans this is the kind of BS reporting that gets to me. I mean yeah, if the above addition to the AP story is true, one would think Stallworth is in deep you know what. But, don't you think that if true, the Cops would have talked to that witness at the scene, and Stallworth would have been arrested for at the very least,,,Wreckless endangerment ?
But since he wasn't, doesn't this kinda prove this is BS reporting ?



I hope so, cause if not, and there was a witness who saw that, and reported it to the cops at the scene and Stallworth wasn't arrested. Then Miami needs some better cops down there.

MIAMI (AP) - Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donte' Stallworth was driving drunk when he struck and killed a pedestrian, according to media reports on Thursday.



WSVN-TV reported that unnamed sources with knowledge of the investigation said Stallworth's blood-alcohol level was between .08 and .16. The legal limit is .08. The Miami Herald also cited an unnamed source as saying that Stallworth's blood-alcohol level was above the legal limit.

The Miami Beach Police Department refused to confirm the reports. Ed Griffith, spokesman for Miami-Dade County prosecutor Katherine Fernandez Rundle, would say only that the investigation is focusing on whether alcohol was a factor in the death of 59-year-old Mario Reyes.

Reyes was struck and killed by a Bentley driven by Stallworth about 7 a.m. Saturday. Reyes, a crane operator, had just gotten off work and was trying to catch a bus when he was hit.

No charges have been filed against Stallworth, 28. His agent, Drew Rosenhaus, nor his attorney, Robert Switke, returned calls from The Associated Press seeking comment. Stallworth issued a statement on Wednesday saying he was "grief stricken" over Reyes' death.

If Stallworth was drunk, he could be charged with DUI manslaughter which carries a maximum 15-year prison sentence.

Stallworth signed a seven-year, $35 million contract with the Browns as a free agent before last season but was injured for much of it. He previously played for New England, Philadelphia and New Orleans in the NFL. then he'll get slammed with a civil suit on top of it....he's screwed.

An arrest warrant charging Stallworth, 28, with DUI manslaughter was filed in the March 14 accident that killed 59-year-old Mario Reyes. If convicted, Stallworth would face a maximum 15-year prison sentence.


Stallworth

Stallworth's blood-alcohol level after the crash was .126, well above Florida's legal limit of .08, according to results of a blood test. Stallworth will also be charged with DUI, which carries a possible six-month sentence plus fines and community service for first offenders.

Stallworth, who is expected to surrender in court Thursday, released a statement last month saying he was "grief-stricken" over the accident. Prosecutors said they will ask that he be released on $200,000 bail.

Stallworth will be prohibited from driving while on bail and not allowed to drink alcohol, according to court documents. He also must observe a 12 a.m. to 6 a.m. curfew and must submit to random alcohol and drug testing through the NFL's substance abuse program.

First there is:

Unfortunately, the Browns have traded their #5 pick + Quinn, for Cutler.

Read about it tomorrow.

Followed up with:

Word on the street is Denver wants two #1 picks for Cutler.

John Clayton says there's a 65% chance that Quinn goes to Denver.

Meanwhile, the Browns will be needing another WR.

Which is it? :noidea: You sure changed your opinion fast...just over 1 hour time difference between posts.

Personally, I hope the Mankok regime keeps both Quinn and Andersuck.

Another QB controversy year will be fun to watch.

Especially with no WR's to throw to.

The Curse lives on in Browntown.

There is a 0.00000001% chance he actually had the foresight to flash this guy.

That's a steaming pile of Patriot shit...

They still have Edwards to throw too.

Just because he's not on NFL network evey 5 minutes doing that commercial, he is still on Clevelands roster.


Gee.....I wonder why they don't show that commercial anymore.......lol

Throwing the ball to someone...and having someone catch it are two very different scenarios.

If BE could hold onto the ball, it might be worth throwing to him.

And with their current roster of WR's, the opposition can double cover Braylon every down now.

I'm telling you, with Stallworth in prison (and that's almost inevitable), they need a Mike Crabtree if they want to have any kind of passing attack at all next year. Patten is a #3 at BEST.

Yeah, and did you catch how the police report said Stallworth originally told officers he hit a man who was lying in the street? What a crock of shit. It was pretty easy to skim over that because there was so much else going on in the story, but it really seems like a pathetic attempt to weasel his way out of it.



edit: never mind .. the newer version of the story from this morning cleared it up and said he told them he hit "the man lying in the street", not "a man lying in the street." So I guess you can ignore everything I just said.

As much as I don't want to see another 1st round WR...I have to agree with you here.

The only question I have is...could we not wait until round two and get Hakeem Nicks or Brian Robiskie? One of them is bound to slip into the second round...and would be a solid addition.

Save our #5 for a better prospect (overall) such as a Curry or Raji? Heck, we could even take M. Jenkins and plug him in at Safety/NB.

For that matter, in the 2nd round, we could go with TE Jared Cook (South Carolina)...to try and replace KWII.

I think Crabtree is NFL ready...almost a sure bet at a position where sure bets are few and far between. He fills a need, and can be a star for years to come.

Whoever gets Crabtree is getting a hell of a deal. He has great hands, great speed, great moves, a knack for getting open ... pretty much everything you could want in a receiver. Every time I've seen him play, he's made the defense look like amateurs.

Well, since it's college football, I guess they technically ARE amateurs, but you know what I mean.

If I was Crabtree I'd refuse to play on a cursed team.

One year ago the Browns signed Stallworth to a 7 year $35M contract.


ESPN legal analyst Roger Cossack believes it's a foregone conclusion that Donte' Stallworth will serve prison time after being charged with DUI manslaughter

Cossack says Stallworth's jail term will be a matter of "years, not months." Dynasty leaguers can feel free to cut Stallworth. He won't play in 2009.

Yeah, well Crabtree will probably get 7 years and $70 million if he goes in the top five.

Does that mean if the Browns take him, he'll be doubly cursed and kill TWO people?

I don't care who the Browns take as WR - they still have Dink and Dunk as QB's.

Haven't we swept them 5 years in a row?

I definitely agree...I would NOT want to play on that gawdawful franchise. Every year at least one marquee player suffers a career ending injury in camp. There are staph infections running amok. It's the Bermuda Triangle of the NFL...

Crabtree has bust written all over him IMO. Big 12 offensive #'s don't impress me that much, the fact that he's now got a bum foot doesn't bode well either.

So yeah, that would seem like the obvious choice for Cleveland....lol

For his sake I hope he keeps that foot wrapped up good when he's in the locker room.

A bust? I think he's one of the surest bets of this draft. He's one of the most prolific WR's in college history. With a little coaching to clean up his route running, he's going to be a great WR for years to come.

Anyone going to the Browns just increased thier chances of being a bust.

The lions drafted the most prolific receiver coming out of college for years on end.

With good protection, Quinn instead of DA, and Braylon Edwards across from him, Crabtree could have success in Cleveland.

That is a LOT of if's though!
