    This was touched on on the Saban thread. It's awful with the wife and kids (the survivor isn't expected to make it). As for the woman-beating piece of pigshit former football player...

    Siran Stacy
    In December 1994, former Philadelphia Eagles running back Siran Stacy was arrested for assaulting his girlfriend, Sharon Chancellor, less than two weeks after he had been acquitted of assaulting her on another occasion. Chancellor had filed numerous complaints against Stacy in the past, but in most cases declined to press charges.
  3. Well, then, he certainly deserves to be maimed and to have almost his entire family smashed to death around him because some hillbilly cowboy went over the line.
    Jesus, slap.

    Have to agree with Fenian on this one, slappy. I understand wanting to put things in context, but that was cold.

    Agreed, because he was a scum at some point justifies that those poor kids should get killed?
    That's just beyond bad.

    Does anyone remember the "Siran Rap"

    "Siran Stacy, Siran Stacy, the M-V-P of the Sugar Bowl..."

    I don't know why I can still remember that after all these years....

    I feel sorry for the family -- they don't deserve anything life dealt them.
    I thought that was clear by my saying "What happened to the wife and kids was awful. As for that happened to (him)..." my bad, I guess that's just not plain enough.

    It really bothers me when newspeople reflexively turn to archives and legal doc searches when researching someones background and throw (the usually bad) stuff out there because they don't have anything else to fill out a report. For example, I still don't understand how a restraining order against Kanye West's mother's plastic surgeon filed more than five years ago, has anything to do with what might have happened to West's mom. Now if someone is in a car crash and has two DUIs in the last four years, that might be relevant.

    I'm sorry but that made me laugh. Out loud, even.
