Marshawn watch

The Buffalo PD are still waiting to hear from Marshawn Lynch to hear about hit involvement in a hit-and-run last weekend. We’re still waiting for the truth.

A recent report claims a witness identified Lynch at the scene and the victim, a visitor from Ontario, has been publicly identified.

But Marshawn remains mum.

There is no arguing he’s a star athlete. But that doesn’t give him immunity to basic responsibility and civic duties. If anything, it means he should be setting a strong example. By hiding behind his attorney and making excuses why he’s too busy to talk to investigators, he’s doing as much to hurt his image and that of all sports figures, as if he backed up and went over the pedestrian a second time.

What kind of a genius are we dealing with here? Obviously, we don’t expect a lot from a football player, but look at what his blog looks like. This is from YardBarker.com:

last year n da draft it was ma turn…dis year i got 2 cuzins cummin to join me ….(Head) josh johnson best QB n da draft and (jizzle) rob jordan best WR n da draft…da town (OAKLAND) is soon to be deep n da NFL….we commin to show da world da we get down in da town and can ball too…..and look out 4 ma lil cuzin (fell) at da university of idaho…and it dont stop der ma god brother (Q) quentin thomas point gaurd of UNC gettin ready 4 da NBA….and it get better ….ma cuzins 2 tones doin they music thang….FAM 1ST on da cum up fast…hold ya chin up nuh nuh nuh……. gone

Wow! This is a guy who supposedly has a College Degree. I wonder how he passed his driver test? Here’s how well he drives a Cushman…

    Well, it’s been a week and a half and all we have is the Lawyer saying we are cooperating, all the while doing little or nothing to actually cooperate!

    The police and District Attorney are waiting, apparently impotent, to see what happens. Last I heard, they would think about summoning Lynch to a Grand Jury.

    All this is for a misdemeanor charge. Why not just face up and settle it once and for all? Why have the Bills allowed this to become a pre-season controversy?

    “Why have the Bills allowed this to become a pre-season controversy?”

    Because any publicity is good publicity. If it were you or me, the police would have dragged us out of work and held us at the detention center to help us “remember” the details.

    Yes, but bad publicity is controversy they don’t need this early in the season. In addition it reflects badly on the team.

    Don’t they have a “Code of Conduct” for their players? If they don’t they should and Marshawn should have been told not to bother reporting to practice until he got this straightened out and behind him.

    These guys aren’t getting paid minimum wage. They are paid handsomely – way beyond anything they could earn any other way. Lynch would never have gone to a college if it weren’t for football. Read his blog post above: he’s not real college material.

    He’d probably be working in a carwash or selling drugs right now, otherwise. That big salary comes with a responsibility to the team and the community that pays the high ticket prices that pay that salary. Exhibiting good citizenship is a part of that.

    Some players get that. Others never do.

    A couple of weeks ago I went out to my car to go to work and discovered that someone had severely dented the driver’s side door and demolished the mirror. Have decided to blame it on Marshawn even though I am in another state.

    Car is still drivable and will be repaired. Insurance company was terrific and even had an adjuster out in about two hours. Unfortunately, I don’t get a visit from Peter Frampton as I am with a different company.

    Dennis Haysbert

    I think I’ll switch to Allstate for car insurance. I think having Dennis Haysbert and the guys from The Unit protecting me would be good…
