Steelers Cut WR Wilson After Arrest

ESPN - Steelers cut Wilson after he's arrested for allegedly punching ex-girlfriend - NFL


The key word to this whole story is allegedly they didn't even wait to get the whole story.

I think they've been looking for an excuse to get rid of him for a while and this was it.

The Steelers have always been a class act... why put up with anyone who is going to hit women?

Re: Steelers Cut WR Wilson After Arrest

This is my whole take on this situation and I do not and am not a believer in hitting females regardless the situation. But my cousin was locked up for over five years for an assault charge on his ex-wife that he didn't do. If a female has a mark on her face or body and claims you did it in Alabama (where I stay) it's a wrap you go to jail without it being proven to be true. My cousin never touched her I was an eye witness at his trail at the age of six he was babysitting me at the time and they claimed i was brainwashed to tell the judge my story. Ever since then it left a bad taste in my mouth about females claims about things. So he lost his job for an alleged attack probably will be suspended by Goodell and what if he never did it? Not saying he didn't do either just all males watch yourself please!!!

Hitting a woman is not right, and shouldn't be tolerated. But you are correct, it's your word against hers. If there is a mark, no matter how small or what it looks like, your going to jail. Same way with Rape, and any other type of assult involving a female.

Dudes got to be careful now. Long gone are the days of the gorrilla pimp.

Re: Steelers Cut WR Wilson After Arrest

The only situation where it is understandable for a man to hit a woman is if she is trying to kill him. Other than that I can't condone any other situation where hitting a woman is right.

One of my good good friends was up at JMU during one of their many BIG oarties they throw there. Well anways, he met this girl and they were having a good time and they both got drunk and they started to mess around, well a cop or ABC agent or someone came and busted up a party and found them two messing around and teh girl automatically pretended like she was uncounsious and acted like she didnt know what was going on. All because she was embarrassed to stand up and say they were messing around. Well anyways, they press charges on him and arrest him. They go to court and the girls roommates even testify that she was with him all night and that she was walking around with her hands down his pants and saying "he's jsut so nice" but yet she tried to lie just because she was embarrassed to stand up and say she was having a good time. Well he was already on probation prior to that for a DUI, and they had found weed on him as well, so taht violated his probation. Even though he beat the case of the girl accusing him of that bullshit, he still has to sit in jail for two years for violation of probation becuase of that girl. IT's not always the mans fault. Women are very vendictive and really dont give a shit about you when it comes down to it. But I know the same can go for both sides. So everyone just needs to be careful and stop all this stupid crap.

My friend steven wont get out of jail til '09 and has been there for over a year.

Re: Steelers Cut WR Wilson After Arrest

When I was in 6th grade this BIG girl came up to me and tried to start fightign me and I kept backing up and telling her I dont hit girls and she kicked me in my balls, I still told her to stop and continued to back up and she kicked me AGAIN and that time it hurt REALLYbad and my first reaction was to step forward and punch her in her forehead. she hit the ground and I felt bad, but I knew I had to do it.. I will never hit a woman again but I was in 6th grade and I was maybe 90lbs and she was like 140-150.

Re: Steelers Cut WR Wilson After Arrest

I would never attack a woman unless I was forced to defend myself. And even though the key word in this story is "allegedly", I tend to believe it's true simply because it happened in a public restaurant and there were witnesses who saw the whole thing and told the police what happened. I don't think witnesses would lie to the police about something like that. And Wilson sounds like a real asshole to me, but his g/f sounds like one as well so there's blame to go all around, I remember hearing that story about how she was in a standoff with cops back in January.

Re: Steelers Cut WR Wilson After Arrest

It all comes down to the women you run with. Like Mooby said Wilson and his G/F have had run ins with the police before. It seems that they bring out the worst in each other. I think this is the 3rd time a Steeler has had issues with hitting women. Davenport, James Harrison and now Wilson. I think they wanted to send a message.

Yeah, has nothing to do with the fact he had 18 catches in 2007. Somehow management missed Najeh Davenport's episode, or is he just less replaceable. Look, business is business and they are going to do what is in the best interest of the club so please spare me this was a "class act" move. If #7 slapped someone around, would the "nation" demand they hand their starting job to Charlie Batch?

Your friend is not in jail because of that girl. He's in jail because he's an idiot who refused to comply with the conditions of his probation. The moment he took possession of the weed, he was in violation and deserved having his probation sentence revoked.

Re: Steelers Cut WR Wilson After Arrest

PFT made a good point, though. A few weeks ago, one of the Steelers' starters was arrested for a domestic incident, but he wasn't cut. Wilson, a back-up, is cut even though he's only been accused. A case of double standards here?
