Re: Another gun incident

Few more details in this article, including a statement by Arrington.

As far as I can tell, Arrington didn't do anything wrong here. Perhaps a better class of friends would be advantageous though.

I guess Lavar wants to be like R.Lewis in more ways then just a pro bowl LB. I mean come on! Get some classer friends guys.
I'm not sure what Lavar did to warrant a comparison to Ray Lewis?

Analogies

Guns:Parties
Women:Michael Jackson

As you can clearly see, the glove does not fit...

Did he suddenly lose his ability to fight off blocks in the middle of the field?

Re: Another gun incident

Hmmm... Do I get a new avatar at 50? I'd like one of Michael Westbrook punching Stephen Davis. That would be sweet. Or Gus Ferrotte headbutting a wall. The caption would say "MEATHEAD".

Re: Another gun incident

Maybe you should make it Curtis Jackson? (I want to see who gets this)

Re: Another gun incident

Until further information is available, it looks as if Arrington did everything right here - - except he invited or allowed to be invited some antisocial misfits. He rented a place for a party and hired security people. When police were summoned, he said he was shutting it down not that the cops were hassling him. Hard to see how he did much wrong in that scenario. Obviously, the whole story is not out yet, but so far, Arrington looks good.

Guns and parties don't mix. Guns and alcohol and parties are a horrendous mixture.

IF the wounded man were to die - and I certainly hope he doesn't - then the comparison to Ray Lewis is particularly apt. Arrington would have been the celebrity present at a celebration event where someone died even though neither Arrington nor Lewis did the killing.

If anyone wants an avatar that is captioned "MEATHEAD", there are several photo possiblities that could provide the grist. Albert Connell would be a name to add to the list of folks whose likeness could work out here.

But as I remember it, Lewis plead guilty to obstruction of justice (because the DA didn't have enough to get him for the murder itself) for helping to cover up the murder. I just don't see anything anywhere showing that Arrington hasn't cooperated with the police or that he was even suspected of being involved in the purposeful brutal murder of two people like Lewis? The thing is, Ray Lewis was guilty of at least some wrongdoing and was involved in the murder itself (whether he used the knife or just tried to cover it up). I don't think simply being at a party where something goes wrong means that Lavar's name should be thrown in the mud with Ray Lewis's. Just my opinion.

Re: Another gun incident

PSUSkinsFan:

I agree that Arrington ahs done nothing yet that approaches obstruction of justice and in that light he is far more admirable than Ray Lewis. But his being the "athlete" in the presence of an "accidental death" in the vicinity of some partying behavior is very comparable to the "Ray Lewis Event".

I fully expect Arrington to come out of this with no meaningful charges against him. As host of the party, he could be responsible if some "under-21" folks were served booze, but I don't consider that kind of thing nearly as bad as a "gun incident".

Re: Another gun incident

I agree with SC. It's not a perfect comparison, but it's fairly close.
