Default Re: Ken Hamlin - Thug? or Bad Spot?

SEATTLE - Seattle Seahawks safety Ken Hamlin has been released from the hospital, one week after he was beaten up outside a nightclub in the city's Pioneer Square district.

Hamlin suffered a fractured skull, a blood clot on the brain and a fractured hand in the fight Oct. 17. He was released from Seattle's Harborview Medical Center over the weekend, hospital spokeswoman Susan Gregg-Hanson said Monday. She would not provide any additional details.

Police are investigating whether there is a connection between the fight and the death of Terrell Milam, 31. Milam was found shot to death on a sidewalk near Seattle's Seward Park, about 51/2 miles from the bar.

On Monday, there were no new details to report, police spokesman Sean Whitcomb said.

Investigators have confirmed that Milam had been at the bar a few hours before his death. They have not said whether they believe Milam was involved in the fight with Hamlin.

According to King County Superior Court and U.S. District Court documents, Milam had a long history of drug use. During a dice game in 1994, he shot an acquaintance -- a member of a rival gang -- five times, killing him, and was sentenced to 41/2 years for manslaughter.

On Sunday, the Seahawks beat the Dallas Cowboys, 13-10.

It was the first game Hamlin had missed since he entered the league as a second-round draft pick by Seattle in 2003. Marquand Manuel started in Hamlin's spot.

Steel-X, understand about him not deserving any of this, but much like when our guys go down to the Strip District, you gotta know when the scene isn't controlled and get out of Dodge despite your intention and right to wind down. Because yes at 24 you don't always look at the big picture till its too late.

The first to receive widespread attention, because it was caught on videotape, was the July beating of two soldiers after a dispute that allegedly began in the queue to enter Larry's. Then Seattle Seahawks player Ken Hamlin was seriously hurt in October after a fight resulting from a dispute that began in the club.
Full Article

Was looking for an article on his status but really didnt find anything, except about this bar! Man stay away from Larry's Nightclub if your ever in Seattle, thats if it is still open when you go.

What's there to say? Getting smacked in the head with a metal sign while down on the ground is always a crime by the one doing it, and always a tragedy for the one getting it. The fact that Hamlin is a Seahawk is incidental. It sucks for us, of course -- our secondary was stretched pretty thin this season even without losing him. Losing him just compounded the problem.

As was noted earlier, he didn't necessarily exercise the best judgment in being where he was when he was. And if he's the one that escalated the situation from verbal to physical, then he was just plain stupid.

Nevertheless, there were some good things to come out of it. Everyone in the Seahawks org was made more aware of potential hazards off the field and took more care in their day-to-day routines (up until the Locklear thing last week). For the Cowboys game, Hamlin did a taped message for the players and it proved to be a huge motivational thing. And since he has been well enough, he has been motivating the other players on the sideline during games, and helping them prepare during the week.



Was that the sort of response you were looking for?

Yes talon it was. Since we did not play you this season I was wondering what the Seattle faithful thought of the ordeal. Thanks for the post. Rep for you.
