Walker Victim of Robbery

While the details are still unfolding on Javon Walker apparently getting robbed and having significant injuries in Vegas. I just wanted to chime in on the situation.

I think it is terrible that something like this happens in society, and it seems like we always want to blame the NFL player the victim of such crime.

It isn't Walker's fault this happened, but he didn't use good judgement.

I remeber seeing an interview with Walker about how he had learned his lesson after Darrent Williams died in his arms. You would think the guy learned not to make himself a target for this type of crime. Anytime you go to a nightclub in Vegas an drop $15,000 you have to expect some low lifes to take notice. When your a high profile athlete, you have to take precautions like having body guards when you go to nightclubs or just not going at all. You also have to learn to lay low. The guy was on stage spraying Dom Perignon on the crowd. That is terribly stupid for the guy to do. What makes him think he should then be alone ANYWHERE after that.

Walker may have learned a lesson, he learned to ditch his entourage to avoid getting shot up in a car, but he didn't learn that is wasn't smart for him to drop $15,000 spraying the crowd with champaigne from the top of a stage with the club spotlight focused on you.

Hopefully Walker is okay, but it just goes to show you how stupid some of these athletes can be. I only pray that he is okay and he also has learned the whole lesson this time.

Oakland Raiders Swing for the Fences in 2016 NFL Draft

[embed align="center"]http://gty.im/153039819[/embed] These aren't your daddy's Oakland Raiders or even your younger self's Raiders. If anything, these are your newborn's Raiders or your puppy's Raiders. These are the Raiders we've never seen before. Indicative of the freshness of the franchise was their 2016 NFL Draft. No longer slave to a high draft pick and desperate needs, the theme of the draft for the Raiders was upside. It's as if general manager Reggie McKenzie got so used to hitting his draft picks out of the park that he started swinging for the fences. We'll have to wait a couple of years before we know if he struck out or if he'll continue his Ruthian ways. First, McKenzie boldly went with a safety at No. 14 overall. Kyle Joseph is coming off a torn ACL and fills a major need, but safety isn't a premium position. Only a handful of safeties have been drafted in the first 14 picks in the last 15 years and include names like Ea

Looking Forward: Raiders 2012 Free Agents

Khalif Barnes - Weakest link on the offensive line with youth behind him. Raiders will look for for other options. It's not as if there aren't a dozen Khalif's on the street each year. Darryl Blackstock - Was a Chuck Bresnahan guy, but found a home on special teams. Would have to make the team as a reserve LB and special teams guy next training camp. Wouldn't be surprised to see him back as a camp body or gone entirely. Kyle Boller - Hue didn't have enough confidence to turn to Boller. Expect the Raiders to look elsewhere for a backup to Carson Palmer. Jerome Boyd - Was nothing more than a reserve and special teams player. Some good moments and some very bad ones. Camp body again and fate will depend on the defensive coordinator. Tyvon Branch - About the only consistent producer in the secondary. Raiders will want to bring him back. Desmond Bryant - He's been great in limited action and can play inside and out. Key reserve. Michael Bush - He'll find a home a

Pryor Will Successfully Appeal Suspension

It is common belief that Terrelle Pryor was suspended five games by the NFL because of his miss steps at Ohio State. This is simply untrue. Terrelle Pryor was suspended five games for not following the rules of the supplemental draft entry process. Pryor hired Drew Rosenhaus before he was ruled ineligible for the first five games at Ohio State. Based on the rules of the supplemental draft Pryor should have been ineligible for entry. The power of the media and his agent put the league in a tough position. Instead of doing what they should have done and forced Pryor to sit for a year, the NFL allowed his entry while trying to appear tough. There are basically two arguments Pryor will be able to make to get the suspension lifted. 1) The NFL is punishing Pryor because they chose to not follow their own rules. There is no precedent or rule that allows for any such suspension. 2) The five-game suspension is the NFL is punishing Pryor for his college mistakes. This is also unprecedented. The
