That is such a horseshit headline. Positively British tabloid-esque.

Could he have made it a little clearer that he didn't intend to permanently give them away? Sure. But he was in a crowded ballroom, in the heat of the moment. Misunderstandings happen, and he's probably going to end up getting them something much better and more useful than necklaces.

Boy, that would have been awkward.

I don't really blame Culpepper. He probably just thought he was going to let the kid wear them for the ceremony or something, and didn't realize what he was doing.

If you were wearing a nice watch or necklace or something (doesn't have to be $100,000... say it's worth $200) and some handicapped teenager complimented you on it and (seemingly facetiously) asked if he could have it, would you feel obligated to give it to him?

And then, if you let him wear it but he and his family mistakenly believed you were giving it to him, would you feel obligated to let him keep it? If you did take it back, would you decide to give them something of equal or greater value, and something they could actually use to make his quality of life better?

Hypocritical asshats. If I rolled up in a wheelchair and asked you for two bucks, you'd tell me to **** off.

I like how the author of the article states the kid's father was planning on what to do with it, but doesn't actually quote the father saying anything of the kind.

That evil Culpepper! Not willing to give out $75,000 worth of jewelry to every handicapped child that jokingly asks him to!

Seriously... change him from a "football player" to a "footballer," and this could be in the Sun.

Well, aside from the fact that there's not as much bling in Europe. DaMarcus Beasley's doing his part to spread the bling to Holland, at least.

In an unrelated note, Culpepper will appear in a 60-second NFL Network commercial to air during the Super Bowl along with several other players and coaches from around the league that didn't make it to the big game. They'll be singing Tomorrow, a tune from the musical Annie.

Guess NFL Network used up their creative budget coming up with that commercial last year. "Screw it. We'll just do the same one every year."

Does anyone else think it's incredibly gay for males to wear diamond jewelry?

$75 worth? Yes, maybe.

$75,000 worth? No, not at all.

I just think I could find something else better to spend $75k on than a rock.

We'll just do the same one every year."That and those "8 months to get your story straight" commercials, though those are an idea that can literally last as long as the network and the league exist.

Did they do the 8 months to get your story straight thing last year, too? I must've missed it.
