View Full Version : This has to be THE BEST quotation from Rison as a Raider!!

The Modesto Bee, 8/31/00, page C-4, under Raider Notebook column (Jim Jenkins reporting)

It chronicles Rison's multiple brushes with the law that included the $158,000 in bad checks, $34,000 in child support due, another $200,000 that a neighbor loaned him in Kansas, and the River Falls bar fight. Then the following paragraph before his classic quote:

The five-time Pro Bowler maintains he has been unfairly portrayed as one of the NFL's bad boys.

"I'm a beautiful father and I live a beautiful life," he said. "I'm not saying I've been a saint. I'm not saying I'm perfect and I'm not saying I'm wrong. I'm a Raider."

(I'm still wiping up the morning coffee that spewed through my nostrils after reading this quote!)

Yeah, he's said some silly things while over here when you put them in the context of what he has done. I just listed a bunch of his quotes from his chat he had today in another post below, and if you put them in the context of what he's getting charged with, I thought they were pretty funny... http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/smile.gif
