I can only hope that Lavar was wise with the money he made and is financially prepared for life after football. Frankly, with his personality, I think he could transition well to broadcasting with a little practice.

I wish him a speedy recovery.
I admire that sacrifice you made to ensure you'd be there for your child. I'd definitely call that being a good dad.

As for Lavar, I do hope he gets better, which it sounds like he will. He's lucky, he can still be around to be a good father to his young'ns. Hopefully he thinks twice about heading out on the motorbike in the future, for their sake.

And the people that die in CAR wrecks, bicycle deaths or just walking down the street, that happen to be parents, are different for what reason?

Well, heading out on a motorbike is fine...but how about get a license first? At least he was smart enough to wear a helmet.

Re: LaVar Arrington In Motorcycle Accident

Give the guy a break. He was the best thing to happen to the Redskins in the last ten years. I know this sound crazy, but I fantasized that he would come back and play for the Skins. I hope the best for him, and I hope he finds a way back on the field.

I mean I wish him a healthy recovery, but "the best thing to happen to the Redskins in the last ten years"

Seriously? You're kidding right?

I wouldn't call him the "best thing", but he was good for the Skins, and I think we all forget that.

Last time I checked abortion (except for partial birth abortion) is legal. Roe vs Wade legalized abortion and now all the debate is about overturning that ruling. Its on the news and in the paper about every-other day.

MORON!
I think LA was beginning the process of putting football behind him and starting the rest of his life. He was out in Bowie on a business trip concerning the sports bar he is opening. Deep down I think LA knew his football career is over but this accident crystalizes that fact in his mind.

Re: LaVar Arrington In Motorcycle Accident

It's sad that his career has fizzled out the way it has due to injury. I guess we'll never know what he could have become.

Re: LaVar Arrington In Motorcycle Accident

too worried about Lavar the businessman, instead of Lavar the athlete
