NFL lockout after school special

The lockout is still in its infancy and already NFL players are already finding ways of getting themselves into trouble.

Seriously. Check this out.
Dez Bryant gets kicked out of the mall for low slung pants.
True story. Apparently his pants were hanging too low for mall standards and he got booted. When police arrived, Dez threw his friend under the bus and said it was his friends pants that were too low.

Childish enough for you? No? How about this:

Aqib Talib charged with shooting at, pistol whipping sisters boyfriend.
Tampa Bays cornerback decided to take the role of the protective brother a bit too far. And it wasnt just Talib. Mamma Talib also (allegedly) got in the action.

Per NBC:

Once there, according to Sarans boyfriend Shannon Billings, Talib produced a handgun and attempted to pistol whip him with it. According to the report andBillings account, Okolo Talib, theNFLstars mother, as well as Talib himself fired shots in Billings deirection as he fled the scene on foot.

First: Props to NBC for spelling direction incorrectly. Second: What the hell did Billings do!?

Dez Bryant sued for not paying for his bling.
Our buddy Dez was back at it, getting sued for failing to pay for 246,000 worth of bling.

If that wasnt enough, another group also decided to sue Dez for not paying almost 589,000 in jewelry.

Holy smokes. The guy owes more than 850,000 in jewelry. Where the hell is he wearing all this stuff? Even Mr. T thinks this is excessive.

Were not going to do the math to find out how many years worth of salary itll take us to hit even a portion of what Dez owes in bling bills. Too depressing.

Oh look more millionaires not paying for their bills.
Everyones favorite NFL Twitter hound, Chad Ochocinco owes over 11,000 in clothing from Amm OneExclusive Wear. Hes been ordered by the court to pay his bill.

We think his outfit is punishment enough.

Whos letting these NFL stars walk away with so much merchandise without paying for it? Theyre pulling in more bank than most countries and are having issues paying for their bills.

Who knew that the NFL was really an after school program to keep players from getting into trouble? Its like the Boys & Girls Club for grown men.

Amazing.

If this is just what the lockout offseason is like we cant wait to see what the fall brings when these guys are used to practicing and playing.

Tuesday, Jan. 17: Hershey Star Wars jerseys raise big bucks

Here are all the links from around the hockey world and what I’m reading, while feeling like Felicity Jones could have been a little better on SNL last weekend. It didn’t feel like it was the right platform for her and she was just straight reading the cue cards in her monologue.  

*Congrats to the Hershey Bears, who raised over $42,000 for charity with their Empire-inspired Star Wars jerseys from last weekend.

*When Bruins winger Brad Marchand begins to score his value goes way, way up, according to TSN stat maven Scott Cullen.

*FOH (Friend of Haggs) Mike Harrington wants the Buffalo Sabres to get into “attack mode” rather than the passive mode they’ve been in for some time.

*A discussion about the NHL trade deadline and which players are likely to get moved still weeks and weeks away from that deadline.

*The Winnipeg Jets are searching for answers after another loss, and have called upon Ondrej Pavelec in a move of desperation.

*Funny commercial with Brent Burns and Joe Thornton, who have to be the ultimate bosom, bearded buddies in the NHL.

*For something completely different: as the next Lando, Donald Glover understands why the character is vital to the Star Wars universe.
