It's not like they sign these guys because they are convicts. Rolle is a great player. Ray Lewis is a great player. Jamal Lewis is a great player. I think the Ravens keep these guys around because of that, not because they are all jail buddies.


exactly.

Therefore, I don't care if Samari Rolle did some crap, because he wasn't on the Ravens. And it will probably only make him stronger on the inside.


Good logic, except for one thing... THE RAVENS KNEW HE BEAT HIS WIFE WHEN THEY SIGNED HIM. Of course it hurts the image... reputation procedes with the player, not the franchise. Too many players (90s Cowboys, 00 Ravens) on one team makes for a bad team reputation.

Oh, and I am questioning also why beating your wife would make you stronger on the inside.

Good post... really. :-D


actually we didnt know that he beat his wife when he signed. he wasnt actaully convicted or whatever when he signed...

besides we have a history of turning players around who have had some troubles in the past. i gotta say, whatever anger they channel into football seems to work out...

by the way, good post... hahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaa


LOL, I'd say the Ravens knew about this when they signed Rolle. Just because you didn't know it when he signed doesn't mean that the Ravens didn't.

And there's almost nothing I hate more than wifebeaters, how it could make you stronger on the inside is beyond me. It just means that you are a pompous ass that can't control your emotions.

the ravens don't really care about that. If I owned the Ravens, and the best NFL players were OJ Simpson , Michael Jackson, Leonard Little, Timothy McVeigh, Jamal Lewis, Martha Stewart, BTK, and Jack the Ripper, and I could sign all of them because they were free agents, I would. I wouldn't care about the record, a good owner would pick the best players. Period. And the Lewis duo and Samari Rolle are all amazing players despite their pasts.

I hate to say it, but this is not exactly getting off easy these days... A guy that hits his wife one time, usually doesn't ever do any time... Probation is pretty much the standard punishment... In fact, a $10,000 fine is pretty hefty under the circumstances....

I'm not saying it's right, but that's how it is...
