common sense    

why do football players think that they are above the law and can get away with anything? I wish for once these guys would be denied bail and go to the pokey for 1 year and have their license revoked for a year as well. So sick of well paid athletes getting away with crap like this. If it were any of us, we'd be in the slammer for sure. And race has nothing to do with this. The law is the law. HE broke it. what an idiot!

Let's get this straight...He (Nick Fairley) IS NOT a STAR in the NFL
However, his agent might want to contact Americas Most Wanted/COPS as I beleive this will be his claim to fame.
Can't wait for his exit from the "D"...See Ya!!!

80% of pro athletics are bankrupt within seven years after leaving sports. It'll catch up to him. One day he won't be smiling.

It is totally believable that some azszwhole said its because a black man in an expensive car with a white girl in it. Totally beleivable because its never the black mans fault. When the black man stands up and takes stock in what the black man does, then the black man shall be free. I don't think whitey put drinks down his gullet then put the keys in his hand and stuffed him in his car with some money grubbing white bichtch.
