You and mretrade are clinging to anything you can to turn your guy and your team into the victim. That is the exact point. On the web zone I can understand taking that stance but here it won't fly as easily. I have never proclaimed Sherman innocent and acknowledge he might not be. You are the grasping at straws while trying to convince us all these situations are mere circumstance and in reality your guys are the real victim.
Sorry but I don't buy it. There are to many problems popping up on your team for these all to be chance. There is always two sides to a story and I would bet money there is information that is not public that that would change the public perception. It's called damage control and is dictated by who has the money.
Example. Until this lawsuit no one heard that Aldon fired a gun. That changes the dynamic of the story significantly and begs the question, what else don't we know. It is equally fishy that the local DA pulled the warrant on Brooks stating there wasn't enough info when we know they have signed statements from multiple credible witness's.
Acknowledge that there is a chance that these guys aren't always the victim and maybe you gain a little credibility but as long as your in a Seahawks web site trying to makes Seahawks fans look like the bad guys, you will be laughed at and seen for what yoy are.
I'm at work so excuse spelling.
Again...missing the point.
This has nothing to do with Sherman. It has to do with the assumption of innocence...which EVERYONE deserves.
Don't stand there and be critical of 49er fans who think this is BS when in the same paragraph you are defending Sherman. It doesn't matter what my opinion is. It only matters that you are gonna defend your guy just as you are accusing 49ers of doing.
Glass house. Its no more complicated than that.
As for the charge itself, I'm honesly disappointed in Aldon that the thing took place, but there are some things to keep in mind. He was trying to break the thing up. That was why he fired into the air. He had already been stabbed by UNINVITED guests. he asked them to leave and they wouldn't. Now what he should have done was immediately call the police and I score that one to youth and immaturity, but your initial post on this topic was essentially "where there's smoke theres fire" argument about the ENTIRE TEAM. As if to say it a team full of criminals.
My response was to say "Pot meet Kettle" on the issue of PEDs. Sherman wasn't the only guy who got hit with it. There is a reason people call them the Seadderall Seahawks. I don't play that game so I'm not gonna use that lame term (outside of just using the reference right there). I could make the EXACT SAME "Where there's smoke there's fire" argument and kinda suggest that there is cheating going on in the locker room in Seattle. Team santioned?
Just to be clear here, that is NOT what I'm saying. What I'm saying is that if you are going to live in a glass house (protecting your team in regards to PEDs) then don't throw stones (attacking 49er fans for defending their team).
What I do find funny here is the title of this thread and all the attacks on Aldon...when Delanie Walker is a codefendant here. He's a Titan tho, so clearly he CAN'T be as guilty as Aldon, right? I defended Delanie because what he's accused of doesn't make any sense when you consider the type of person he is thought to be...but all Seahawks fans care about is that its a current Niner being accused....IE the NAME OF THE THREAD. Moreover, Aldon wasn't accused at firing at people. Delanie was.
IE, get off the soapbox. You are guilty of everything you are accusing 49er fans of.
