0312_pillar_deion_sanders_getty_vh1_2It ain't the Super Bowl ... but it's pretty damn close -- Deion Sanders was just awarded primary custody of his three kids with his estranged wife.

We're told 11 of 12 jurors ruled in the NFL Hall of Famer's favor ... giving him full physical and legal custody of his 13 and 11-year-old sons with Pilar Sanders.

However, the Collins Co., TX jury gave the ex-couple shared physical and legal custody of their 9-year-old daughter.

Both sides were arguing for sole custody of all 3 children.

This settles the custody issues, but Deion and Pilar are still battling over finances in their divorce.

Good for him! Most women win custody and the judge was looking for best interest of the children. In this case the kiddos are better off with daddy because I'm sure he can provide more than she can. It really doesn't matter as they likely have people who take them to and from school, cook, clean, etc. for them.

Now that Deion have custody of his two boys will the system order his ex-wife to pay child support..I say no! I bet she will ask's the system that Deion pay her a crazy amount of child support for her daughter! You got to love the system and fair it is!

Congrats Deon! Women have to understand that times are a changin. They cannot bully fathers to gain custody of children. Fathers are equally entitled to custody of their children. I was bullied during a 4 year divorce by a psycho bully. I won custody recently. To all the fathers out there...get a good lawyer and never give in

Sounds like a crappy mom if they gave primary custody of the kids to him. Why does only the youngest get divided custody???

You will find in these cir***stances the women tend to CARE more about the CHECKS than the children.In a Court system that is PRO-WOMAN- when you see them lose out , You must know they fall very short in the parenting department.

It's never good to separate siblings. She must be a really bad mother to the boys. Shame.

Look, I lived in their former neighborhood in Plano and would run in the early morning and occasionally pass Deion. He was always happy and would call out across the four lane street to everyone, "good morning!" He was very, very pleasant. This judgement on confirms to me that this woman is no good and that's putting it politely. I have to wonder if she is going to go to the extreme and hurt one of the kids. Somebody better be checking up on everyone's well being.

I've said it once and I'll say it again, birthing a child doesn't make you fit to be a mom. When Pilar was getting arrested and doing $hit in front of the children everyone called her crazy. Now you all want this same crazy person to have custody of her children. Gtfooh!

Read the story people. The judge didn't make the decision on custody. The jury did and there were 7 women on that jury. They obviously heard testimony that caused them to rule in Deion's favor and against Pilar.

I can bet the jury was mostly women too... and why is a jury deciding this?
