    Pierce still being looked at for obstruction of justice charges, he plans to meet with New York district attorney in near future.

    Bradshaw will be interviewed by police.

    Well I do hope this sends a message to the rest of the league and sports players that you cannot get away with this crap any more.

    He's been a nuisance in New York all year, it was only a matter of time.

    If I may complain for a minute (well, a minute on this subject ;) )

    Where the F*CK are all the crya$s little b!tches about this subject? The karma and class police should be all over Plax, but none of those bastard whores are saying a goddamm word. Imagine for a sec it was the Pats...it would be 24 hour bashing ALL OVER THE WEB. I swear to God this double standard bullsh!t makes me so angry.

    Now, the best part of being a Patriots fan...we would NOT have a piece of sh!t like this on our team. He would have been straightened up (Moss and Dillon) or booted off the team (Willie Andrews) long before he could have done something this friggin stupid.

    This will lead to the Giants downfall, IMHO. And I will be cheering it heartily.

    Not having Buress will eventually hurt this team in the playoffs. Despite the media telling you this team is now better without it's best and outstandingly clutch receiver.

    [Awaits, "They've lost x,y & z and are still 11-1; they're 2-0 in games without him"]

    Exactly; I'm no fan of GODell but one thing he's done is get tough with off field crap like this. One of the few things I agree with him about is his desire to decrease and hopefully even eliminate this kind of thing from the league.

    I really hope so. Athletes today think they can get away with to much. And hopefully this will be a wake up call.

    I'm not too sure about that, after all, the Giants actually DID get better after Tiki Barber left.

    Why can Plax never play quarterback?

    He has horrible pocket awareness.
    He can't get his shots down field.
    He doesn't know when to release.
    He doesn't know how to move the safety.
    He has a cannon but no accuracy.
    He's too eager for draw play.
    He takes too many shots down field.

    Ya know -- I hate guns. I used to give money to Handgun Control.

    However, I'm queasy about the law that says doctors must rat out their injured patients to the police.

    Speaking of, their ground game will be weakened now, defenses being able to put 8 in the box will help.

    Yes, the Giants were able to easily defeat two currently non-playoff teams without Plaxico, but the guy can absolutely dominate a game.

    He, much like Moss, also commands double coverage. He makes an impact even when he's not getting the ball.

    Heh. I guess I should learn before I trust ESPN. They first broke it a couple of hours ago and were talking as if it had just occured.

    He was going to be out 6 weeks with the gun wound injury anyway. For the next 4 weeks he'll be sitting on his couch no matter what, but now it looks like the are "penalizing" him so he doesn't have to miss any games when he's ready to play again. Kind of an empty punishment if you ask me.
