    For violating new contract: He hurt his ankle riding his moped in August.

    Due to the injury, he wouldn't play until then anyway.

    Now he just won't get any $.

    3 million dollar moped ride.

    In his defense, I wouldn't want to admit I rode a moped either. Reminds me of an old joke about mopeds and hefty girls....

    Man, if I made as much money as he is making with that new contract, they could tell me what to do and I would do it.

    Rule #1 after getting a fat new contract: don't lie to the team about an injury.

    Rule #2 after getting a fat new contract: don't lie to the team about an injury, and let the team find out exactly how you got injured.

    Kellen Winslow II and Jeff Kent thinks what Monta Ellis did was dumb as hell.

    I like how Mullin and Nellie thought he shouldn't be punished.

    Sigh. My favorite team.

    Buy a car, or get someone to drive you.

    Get. Off. The. Moped.

    And then when you get drunk hire a chauffeur or a cab or limo for the night. I never understand how uber-rich people can get DUIs.

    Whatever happened to the Jim Rome Celebrity Drunk Bus. If you are hammered and you can't drunk, don't drive home, just call 1-800-blahhhhhhh, and the bus will come to pick you up.

    You'd think a dude with that kind of loot would wreck something cooler than a moped.

    We're on the same track here.

    How the hell do you sprain an ankle on a moped? Road rash after tipping a Harley? That's different, but a moped?


    Fail, indeed.

    Hell, what you did to your fucking toe beats this garbage.
