    Sure he meant teammate and not bookie?
  3. Fred Brown only mistook an opponent for a teammate.

    Yeah, if the officer left his door unlocked, that player might have taken one between the eyes.

    What the hell is going on in Toledo? When did they become the northern branch of the University of Miami (FL)?

    The charge is bullshit. How can they say he burglarized the placed? He was standing outside the residence.

    Toledo tanked that football game against Buffalo 2 seasons ago. Shoulda won by 52 and they won by only 7 or 8. Fuckers.

    Ace, burglary is entry into a building illegally with intent to commit a crime. From this story, he was outside the building. At best, I only see a weapons charge.

    It says attempted aggravated burglary. If he was armed at 4:30 in the morning and jiggling the door handle, I think it could work.

    I feel your argument but I'd be willing to bet that a jury would be deadlocked. Who is to say that he wasn't carrying the gun for protection? Again, that's not burglary because he didn't enter the dwelling. That's my only fault with the charge.
