Here are some of Peter King’s tweets, as they relate to alleged Serial Rapist, Darren Sharper:

Sharper1: Re the many who have questioned Darren Sharper as a candidate for the Pro Football Hall of Fame class of 2016, a few thoughts:

Sharper2: The 46 HoF voters are asked to consider only on-field factors for ex-players. That is what I do. He may be shy …>

Sharper3: …of qualifications, but he is certainly a candidate. 2000s all-decade player. 6th all-time w/63 INTs (Reed: 64). He’s a candidate.

Sharper4: We would be shirking our duties if we did not consider him. What has happened since should not be factored in.

The bylaws of the Pro Football Hall of Fame forbid the 46 voters from considering players’ off-field lives.

If I said, “I will not consider Sharper for induction because he has been accused of multiple rapes,” I would resign from the committee.

Reminds me of that song about wining the lottery and other ironical things, ummm Uptown Girl.

Frontrunner Also known as “Fair-weather fan“: – People who only support sports teams that recently win championships and then claim they liked that team all along. These people can be highly annoying, approaching them may result in increased levels of aggression. Frontrunners may claim they have a relative or were born in the state where the winning team is from. Do not trust them at any cost. Bob:”I told you my Broncos would win!Joe:”You moved here from Dallas!

I get that Snoop is a father and I get that his son chose to take his talents to Westwood, if only to be closer to P.Diddy’s boy…But, this is the classic case of front-runner-itis that most people suffer from – being fans of one team at one time only because of that teams’ success.  If it’s not treated it turns into Super-Fan-itisThat’s the Colts fan that shows up to the sportsbar on Sunday wearing a Vinatieri jersey…Or worse, The Avalanche fan in an Avalanche Ray Bourque jersey…idiots!

Anyhooo, my point is – if my son chose to play baseball for Auburn, instead of LSU – I would still wear purple and shout in his face about the opinions of the plainsmen/warEagles/tigers – (#@$*ing pick one!).  If he got a scholarship to play, it would be different; I would support him, but I still would wear purple in the stands and say – “You played a good game son, to bad your team got their ass kicked, again.”

So, Snoop was never really a fan of the (used)Trojans, he just jumped on the bandwagon and just sprained both ankles getting off.  Is it time for someone else I know to come around to the Westwood side of things?

Nah! My attorney, he’s a real fan of the team with only one BCS trophy, and has been since his days in Palm Springs – Fight On Brother!


this one’s for you…
