Is humbled code for butt-raped? I don't want to read about that....

Who cares, he's probably right. Coughlin is an asshole. The dude didn't hurt anybody or anything. He just made a truly idiotic mistake.

Apparently the 23-hour daily lockdown he "endured" kept him out of those showers.

If anyone was doin the butt-rapin, I would guess it was probably Burress.

Did he butt rape you, and take your shirt?

Nah but at least if he did, I would have an explanation for the disappearance of the shirt. That would bring me some comfort...along with all the discomfort of the....sodomy.

"I'm like, forget support -- how about some concern? I did just have a bullet in my leg. And then I sat in his office, and he pushed back his chair and goes, 'I'm glad you didn't kill anybody!' Man, we're paid too much to be treated like kids. He doesn't realize that we're grown men and actually have kids of our own."

Don't act like a kid and you'll be treated like a grown man.

If the dude wanted to carry a gun for protection, I totally get that. He just had the right to legally carry one and learn how to not fire it in his hip pocket.

I don't have the stats on me but more MEN over the age of 18 carry guns more than Kids. Period. The act of carrying a gun is what a MAN does. Right to bear arms.

Plaxico is a american hero in my book, just because he had an accident doesn't mean he is a bad person. he is out there like an trooper, carrying a gun, being awesome, and fighting for Devestation. He is also sticking his neck out.

I once saw plaxico kick the shit out of this guy who was at topsys to get a diet coke. He was like. Get the hell out of here with this shit. We want some tasty fucking cinni popcorn and you made us wait for it. With your dumbass clown diet coke face.

Burress is one of those guys ive always felt that the punishment did not fit the crime. He was an abolute dumbass, but he didnt intend or do any harm to anyone but himself.


If you read the whole thing, he does sound humbled, he gave talks at rookie symposiums and says hes more focused on family now instead of the clubs.

I wish the Chiefs would have taken a chance on him.


Oh, and it was pretty messed up that Eli never reached out to him in prison. Eli sounds like a D-bag

I don't think we learned anything new in the article. Prison sucks. Coughlin is a hard nosed dick and a Manning is a dick.

No, he doesn't. He sounds like a child blaming everyone for his own problems. He hasn't taken any responsibility for his own actions. Nowhere in the article does he indicate any hint of remorse or humility. Whining about Coughlin and Manning not coddling him is something he should be doing in private, not in an interview for the whole world to see.

Whining about Coughlin and Manning not coddling him is something he should be doing in private, not in an interview for the whole world to see.

In prison, though, Burress started to realize that he wasn't just a victim, that he had chosen to take the gun into the club and "changed my life." He knew he had to do things differently.

"I was an edge-goer at times, running the streets and living life and not spending time with my family," he told the magazine. "Or taking risks and not thinking about the consequences, which gave them the chance to take me down."




"For me, there just comes a time when you want to get things off your chest and you just speak about it at that time and put it behind you," said Burress, adding that he was "just being honest." "I met with everybody over there (with the Giants) and I think everything went well. We had some good conversations, closure on the situation that happened with me, and everybody over there at that time. And I thought that everything was as good as it probably could have went."




Beyond the field, Burress has tried to turn a negative situation into a positive, speaking at this year's rookie symposium.

"I told them, 10 years ago I was sitting where you're at and not trying to hear this sh--," Burress said, according to Men's Journal. "But I threw away $12 million these last two years, and half of you will never even see that. I made a choice and lost everything: my contract, my Nike deal, and the birth of my daughter. That ain't some dude talking; it actually happened."

So he said prison changed his life, and told other guys not to go to prison. I'm still not seeing any hint of responsibility or remorse in any of those quotes. There's way more whining than anything else in the interview.

Sorry, but that's more than just a dumbass mistake.
I really can't believe that this guy would have anything to say about how someone reacted to what he did.
It was BEYOND stupid.

Burress has always been some what of a fruit cake but the Sean Taylor home invasion murder put players on tilt, and I couldn't blame a dude for wanting to seek out some form of self defense other than untrustworthy meat-neck body guards.

He bought the gun in Florida when he lived there. Everything was legal. He was traded and moves to NJ. He goes to NY for the night with the gun = automatic violation. There is no way he could have been legal unless he was a NY resident. NYC won't allow non-residents to carry.

How could you say the punishment was too harsh? It's not like Goodell is unfair and gave a 2 game suspension to a Repeat Rapist right after giving Plax a whole year for shooting himself in the foot. Oh wait...

So if a Banker is the victim of a home invasion, then all bankers should carry pistols into clubs?

He carried a gun because he's a punk ass wannabe thug.
He has/had enough money to afford a body guard that he can trust if he feels so vulnerable. There is absolutely no reason to be carrying a gun into any public establishment.
It's an irresponsible hood rat thing to do.
