On a personal (and very selfish) note, I will always feel cheated that we lost Sean so early in his career. This may cloud my judgment regarding the murderers.
I think that's how most people feel and its not selfish.

I agree with you there. Sad thing is my friends kid was asking me about the best players I saw in person. I told him three players I wouldn't leave my seat if they were on the filed were Bo Jackson, Barry Sanders, and Taylor. He didn't know who Taylor was.

It's good to see him accept responsibility for his actions even though he wasn't in the home and didn't pull the trigger. Now if the other 4 will do the same...

S/N: KLHJ2, I liked calling you Angry a lot more. I'm going to stick with that, unless you don't want me to.
Well said.

While I deeply abhor what he did and I think that no apology can make it "ok," we should respect the fact that he is publicly remorseful.
Exactly.

Lets look at it another way, and it happens all the time, he and his "boys" hook up to hand out. Someone (Taylor's cousin) comes up with the idea to break into Taylor's home and try to take his money from a safe, thinking he was not in town. He doesn't want to be a punk so he agrees to go. Upon entering the house crap goes down hill and Taylor ends up getting shot and dying. Because he was with them he is just as guilty in the eyes of the court and was charged with the same crime as the actual person who pulled the trigger.

Now, he takes on the responsibility and admits his part and has been punished and is sitting in prison doing his time. Now he apologizes to the family and fans publically. No he's not going to get and most likely is not expecting eveyone to forgive and forget, but he is making it known that he knows what he did was wrong and he should not have taken part in it.

Then you still have the other 3 guys who are still waiting trial cause they refuse to admit their part.

I'll except his apology, even though it does not bring Taylor back, or make things write, he should have gotten double what he got or life or even the electric chair, but he didn't. Hopefully he testifies against the other 3 and those other 3 rot in hell.
