Deion Sanders

Wins Child Custody

War with Pilar

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.

There must be something very wrong with Pilar to not win sole physical custody of all kids when courts always favor the mother. I think its good he has primary custody of his sons because a women can't teach a boy to be a man. Not to say moms aren't great parents to sons. But if you've never been a man, you can't teach another person to be one

I think it makes perfect sense. If he was one of those athletes with 5 baby mommas and just sent a check, Deion would be ridiculed. Deion is just as capable as raising his children as the mom and more so with boys. Look at the trouble all these boys get into with no father in their lives. Maybe some of you want his boys to be part of the criminal justice system, like many of our young minority youth. I got custody of my son and raised him to be a good law abiding citizen with no baby mommas and in college doing well. His mom thanks me for raising him the way I did. Men are just as capable people. More men need to step up and make the necessary sacrifices for your children. Don't just make them, raise them.

I would like to point out a typo. The court case is being held in Collin County, TX not Collins

Judging from some of the comments here and on other message boards, I think a lot of you forget that these two were married for almost 13 years. Actually, they're still married. The best years of Pilar's potential carreer were spent with this man, having his babies, and being a full time Mom. I've heard others refer to her as a gold digger. I take issue with that because of the longevity of their marriage. Deion even admitted in court that in the early years of the kids lives, he was absent quite a bit because of his travel schedule. Do you really believe that she was a good mother that all of a sudden went bad? After so many years of marriage, do some of you really believe that she deserves nothing?
