  • Well, poop.

    2nd degree battery is a felony involving a weapon. We'll have to wait for the facts to come out, but that's not a good place to start from.

  • In 1991 as a senior in HS, I pulled the biggest DB move in my life. I was asked to a dance at a rival HS by a a kind of sweet but homely girl who was a waitress at Denny's. Made up some excuse of why I couldn't go. A week before the dance, a hot, popular girl asked me to the same dance. I went. I tried to avoid that girl every time we went on a late night Denny's run. One time she saw me, came up to our table and said to me.."You don't have to hide from me, I didn't think you would go anyway when I asked". When we went to pay, I found my meal had been comped by her. I've never been more disgusted with myself, and I still think about it to this day.

    I have zero doubt that "Vinnie's helmet", "the officiating", "the pick", Malik, Josh Gordon, and now Aldon Smith are just small corrections the universe is making to make up for my repugnancy 30 years ago. I officially apologize to all my fellow Hawks fans.

  • So this happened after he signed with the Hawks? We can’t say somebody pulled a fast one. Here we go again. Another talented guy who won’t get on the field for us due to off the field crap. Might as well sign AB at this point.

    2 days? Only 2 days after signing? Did he get cold feet or feel so untouchable at that moment?

  • Thanks Jville.

    I will wait and see before commenting any further on this matter, save that he should be assumed to be innocent until proven guilty.

    Pass rush still looks good without him, although I'd like another addition to replace his role in the rotation.

  • Just for the heck of it, maybe we should wait until we know what happened?

    Then, just for the sake of argument, we can figure out whether it still makes sense to keep him.

    As others pointed out earlier, we have had plenty of players accused of crimes here or even guilty of them, that flourished as players here.

    Finally, being accused of a crime in a state with some of the most corrupt police forces in the country should give you more benefit of the doubt than almost anywhere else.

    It might make sense for more verifiable information to come forward before we start piling on.

  • When they signed him I wasn't super jazzed about his off the field issues over the years. But I hoped he either had gotten it together or at least was just holding it together long enough.

    From a criminal standpoint you have to let the authorities deal with this but at a minimum he's probably mixed up with some bad people, although I'd put the most likely probabilities where he's less innocent.

    At least this is happening now instead of during the season.

  • Has our office never heard the term " due diligence"? Surely we have some kind of clause written into our contracts that would invalidate his for committing a felony assault off of the field? Perhaps an insurance policy that pays the team in the event of non performance related to stupidity?

    But it sure seems like the police did their due diligence so far in identifying Smith.

    No way they'd give Smith any guaranteed money. He'll be cut with zero dead money if he's guilty.

    Then they can put that money towards Antonio Brown :irishdrinkers:

    You did notice that said incident happened AFTER he was signed right?

    How can one do due diligence on an event that hasnt even happened yet?

    He'd been straight for going on 3 years. It's not like they built their offseason around him.

    I think it was an acceptable risk, and he (pending verification of his involvement) disappointed. Oh well, still signed two other quality rushers. His loss.

    A lot of people here expect every risk to pay off, but they don't. Still good process to take shots every now and again.

    How can one do due diligence on an event that hasnt even happened yet?

  • Didn't we have a very similar thread to this about Dunbar last offseason?

    Wasn't everyone sure he was going to be suspended and potentially face jail?

    Weren't the police almost certain it was him when it first came out? To the point they named him specifically?

    Just because he is accused of something does not mean he cannot play for us later.

    Let it play out and then we will see where we are.

  • Folks jumping to conclusions all over the place. There is a pretty broad range of possibilities here as battery charges can be pretty vague. Not Looking good but I wouldn’t say it’s over yet. The Dunbar case last year looked way more bleak.

  • Allegedly he choked someone, they lost consciousness and it's on camera... this can't end well.




    It's too bad because this could have been a bargain basement deal with high returns. Now it's just another distraction.
