    Honestly, if this is true, I'm wondering how it took this long for O.J. to try and rob given the Trial of the Century.

    OK!
    No debate about his guilt in the murder case is being sought here. I have my opinion about his guilt/innocence and I know everyone else does too. What I am wondering, seriously, is IF he IS innocent, consider the fact that every damn way of earning a living, short of flipping burgers or wiping down cars at Mr. Carwash, has been taken away from the man. Even his Heisman Trophy was taken by the senior Goldman and his family. (And I think that is horse-s__t, regardless of his guilt or innocence.)
    I must agree with (what I think) Oz is saying. If he was capable of double murder, would he have waited this long just to steal? And if he is innocent, why is he stealing now? Is it possible that he doesn't have a pot to pee in and can't work to earn the money to buy one because of Goldman?
    O.J. may be guilty as hell. That is not the point of my post. The point is, has he been forced into a stealing lifestyle? Or is this just more of what he is claimed to be? Personally, while my heart broke for the parents of the victims of that horrendous crime, there is something about the Goldman family, especially Mr. Goldman, that wrinkles my scrotum every time I see or hear him. I get the feeling that I am watching and listening to the biggest Mr. Golddigger, not Goldman. I cannot put my finger on it, but I wouldn't trust him with my daughter or wealth any more than he claims not to trust O.J.
    Finally, I have always wondered what Goldman would say to O.J. and the public in general if it was ever proven that O.J. WAS, indeed, innocent. Could Godman even find the words or express them? Somehow, I just don't think so.
    Don't get me wrong, I am no O.J. fan. And if he is guilty, I wish like everything that it could be proven. But likewise, if he is not, I would like to see others stop trying to profit from him. Right or wrong, a jury said not guilty. And I believe that the civil trial was a double jeopardy. He either was or he wasn't. And the Goldman's can't (or shouldn't) have their cake and eat it too. (But that's food for another thread.)

    OJ gets $25,000 a month from a pension alone, according to one financial breakdown I've found.

    Fred Goldman can't fuck with OJ enough as far as I'm concerned.

    Forced? Was somebody holding a gun to his head when they broke into the room? He's a double murderer who should be in jail, which is where it sounds like he's going.

    O.J. hasn't found the real killer yet, but he did pull off a major Vegas sting and get back two of his old rookie cards.

    So that's progress, I guess.

    But you would think that someone found responsible for the muder of 2 people wouldn't be on a constant party after he said he'd spend his time searching for the real killers.

    O.J. Simpson has told The Associated Press that he took memorabilia that belonged to him from a casino hotel, but didn't break into the room.

    Simpson went on to tell the AP that he was conducting a "sting operation."


    -------------

    The man who claims he was robbed by O.J. Simpson has just spoken exclusively to TMZ.

    Alfred Beardsley, a sports memorabilia collector, says Simpson and his posse pretended to be customers who wanted to buy the suit Simpson wore when he was acquitted.

    Beardsley says they entered the room and two men drew guns. He said Simpson was calling the shots during the alleged robbery.
