Will the media treat Kaczur as a hero now, like they did for Farve?

    Will think the media will treat Kaczur as a hero now, like they did for Farve when he admitted to being addicted to pain killers?

    Hero??

    a junkie rats out his connection...am I missing something here? Happens every day in every state in the country...he's no "hero", just another guy caught in the crossfire of these insane drug "laws"...I wouldn't want to be him, looking over my shoulder for the next ten years wondering if I'm going to get jacked up.

    That's Favre. Brett Favre is Brett Favre. Nick Kaczur is a Patriot.

    Favre didn't pull a Valachi, either....I mean, how many times a week do we see the "poor" drug addled Hollywood stars "struggling" with their addictions on E.T.? That is just fine with the public. Ratting leaves a sour taste in everyone's mouth, though.

    I am not familiar with Favre's story...

    Was he caught in the same manner Kazur was or did he just come out and admit it?

    If he just came out and admitted to it then that is more than likely the reason why he was treated the way he was.

    If he was caught like Kazur was, I don't think he would've been treated the same way.

    Hell, the **** no, bro. He's not just a dopehead, but a chickenshiit dopehead, bro.

    It's not like he helped take down Pablo Escobar.

    The ratting out of his source is the only thing that Kaczur did that I liked. There is a critical difference between Favre and Kaczur, Favre had a legitimate prescription for vicodin following a back injury and got addicted to them. He voluntarily went into the league substance abuse program and got help. Kaczur took this crap on his own accord. I am a life-long Pats fan but there is a world of difference here.

    So this is the thread where we all can make judgements on his being a hero/villian wihtout knowing all of the facts.

    I'm sure that all of us faced with possible loss of career and freedom, would take the "high road" and not say a word to help out our situation. :eek:

    We realy have some holier than thou opinions already on this thread. But, he is neither a hero or villian and he's too small potatoes for the media to play it up either way.

    Uh, how do you know Kaczur didn't start taking them after an injury?

    Do you have any idea what goes on in an NFL training room?

    At all?

    If what you write is accurate, I am 100% behind you.

    Though I understand that this poll is purely on comparing him to Favre, maybe we could have a different poll that offers more choices so that fans can choose an appropriate option about their feelings on Kaczur.

    For eg:

    "he did a praiseworthy job of snaring a dealer"
    "don't care about his addiction, it is deplorable that he ratted a dealer"
    "though he should be commended for giving up the dealer, his addiction is sad/pathetic/shocking and he should be penalized for breaking the law"

    Why would he be a hero for doing what he had to do to escape jail time. A hero would have gone to the police and told them about the dealer.

    It appears to be a safe assumption when he was charged with possession without a prescription.

    I have to admit, I truly do admire those with the nads to rat-out someone.

    People always talk of "ratting" as if it's something sinister. I look at it as heroic to some extent. It certainly is a good quality in a person that motivates them to rat someone out. Although I prefer to hear about people who rat others out for no reason other than being a good citizen. Not so much those who do it to escape prosecution.

    Like someone ratting out their neighbor for drug dealing or tax evasion. Those are good people in my humble opinion.

    Just because he was caught without a prescription doesn't mean he didn't start out with a legitimate one.

    Talto's, if Kaczur originally had a prescription for Oxycontin & then continued to get the drug illegally after it ran out, it's pretty much the same thing as Favre's experience.

    Please don't go that "he didn't do anything illegal" crap either. They both became ADDICTS and how they got their drugs is inconsequential. Each did what they had to do to get their fix.

    Also, vicodin is a much easier addiction to overcome than oxycontin. And yes, I know that for a fact.

    So is selling painkillers sinsister? I could see if he turned in a hardened killer or drug-dealing thug. However I don't that was the case here.

    Even worse, according to the story so far, the drug dealer was trying to get Kaczur off the painkillers.

    well...if everybody is so overjoyed that he "did the right thing" I just wonder how you will all feel if he decides to "do the right thing" and rat out his Patriot team mates or BB ala that worm Walsh, if push comes to shove

    Maybe for Kaczur the Oxy was a step up from the Vicodin he couldn't get anymore or didn't work anymore... People don't usually start out on Oxy when they become addicted to pain killers, and the pain killer's efficacy over time is what causes them to seek out more and stronger drugs.

    BTW - Favre came out because the NFL was aware of his addiction and was set to force him into rehab if he didn't do so on his own. Oxy wasn't around in his addictive days. He's also an alcoholic who hasn't had a drink in over a decade now. It was his alcohol abuse that led Glanville to give up on him in Atlanta and agree to the trade to Green Bay.
