View Full Version : Romanowski Aquitted.

Just saw a blurb on the Excite home page. Says he's very relieved and feels justified. I honestly didn't expect him to be found guilty since he was being judged in Denver. Now if he was on trial in K.C. Well....... :D

Have no fear...Karma is going to get Mr. Roidabunchski sooner or later. Although, as much as I despise him, I don't wish him the same fate as the late Lyle Alzado.

Here is a quote from Romanowski today. "I take a lot of pride in being a good person and being a role model, and a lot of that was in question the last two years." LOL

What BS, spits in someones face and this is being a role model. Of course one would expect such BS out of the pile high city.

Geez... I'm glad this is finally over!....

What a load of crap.... talk about one's celebrity status blowing something out of proportion.... People are treating this like he was some skell selling crack...

"Performance enhancing drug" my butt... Phentermine is used by 1000's of broads everywhere... It's used for weight loss and is pretty much a cosmetic drug for anyone in already decent shape... Pretty much the same effect as Diet Fuel or any ephedra/caffeine/aspirin stack.....

Since Mrs Romo was training hard for a photo feature for S.I. and Muscle Media (hence, the one more likely to benefit from a fat reducing/toning drug) and Bill wasn't padding his bank roll selling it to innocent children at school grounds... it seems like a pretty victimless crime to me, no different than having someone else fill that Viagra or Prozac prescription for you.....

I know I'll probaly take flack for this but I like the guy.... he's an old school type player to me... he busts his butt in practice, keeps himself in shape and comes to play every Sunday, every play...

That spitting stuff is crap IMO... it happens all the time on every level... Lanier did it, Mike Curtis did it....Lambert did it... Spielman did it.. Butkis was famous for it... etc, etc..
Hell, I've tossed a few luggies in my day and had some decent ones airmailed my way....
Nuts get kneed, legs get bit, eyes get gouged,... mommas get insulted... black guys get called the N word, white guys get called crackers.... its friggen football.... With the press all over every incident and guys getting fined for lighting guys up (hits you'd get high 5'd for a few years back)...Rodney Harrison is getting labeled a "thug" and a dirty player for the exact same type hits that made Ronnie Lott the God he was.... This game is heading in a friggen sensitive direction I just can't stand....

The only thing criminal is that pansies like Gene Washington haven't shoved a boatload of Phen into overweight embarassments like Chet and the Goose...

Okay... off the soap box now....

I agree man. He might be a bad sport, but that does not make him a drug pusher. I think he is an a$$hole, but that is a lot of wieght to carry around for sharing a prescription with your wife.

Welcome back Hawaiianboy

Love the guy or hate the guy this charge is bunch of crap. What a waste of taxpayers dollars. This is a prime example of the over legislation that is plaguing our country.

I agree with everything Hawaiianboy said.

Now hanging my head in shame for concurring with a raiderfan..... ;)

Nothing more than an attempt by certain legal representatives to further their careers and get their names in the spotlight by attacking a celebrity. :rolleyes:

... Of course, we'll all be using it as smack fodder when the season rolls around. :D

Romanowski is the kind of player that you really hate, but would love to have playing for your own team. He was quoted as saying that the whole court ordeal "left him spitting mad !"

Just because he was aquitted doesn't mean that the NFL won't punish him. It would be interesting to see what might take place...

I read that the particular drug in question is NOT banned by the NFL so I don't see how the NFL could come down on him since he was not convicted of anything. (Too bad though)
