Teams aren’t going to come to your stadium and play for free.
Good for him, the man deserves to get paid for locking down the 11th ranked recruiting class this year
(in the B1G)
He’s there to uphold the law and the rules of the house
§33. Battery defined
Battery is the intentional use of force or violence upon the person of another; or the intentional administration of a poison or other noxious liquid or substance to another.
Noting there that requires intent to harm, just the intent to use force or violence.
Agree on all points.
He’s clearly running for a bathroom
How can they avoid ruining Joe Burrow?
Draft someone else!
It wasn't a cop, it was a Dome Security Guard. I don't think they are allowed to carry guns.
The Superdome is owned by a political subdivision (governmental entity) and has their own police force, and it sure looks like he’s carrying a gun (although it could possibly be a taser)
A sworn New Orleans police statement filed in Criminal District Court recounts how the stadium security lieutenant had been ordered to enforce the Superdome’s no-smoking policy when he confronted some LSU players in their locker room and asked them to put out their cigars.
According to police, the lieutenant momentarily “wanted to retaliate by punching the offender” — later identified as Beckham — but didn’t. That description appears to have been included to illustrate that the contact on the officer was unwanted.
The officer also considered arresting Beckham but decided against it “due to the jovial atmosphere of the locker room.”
The sworn statement suggests the officer later realized who had slapped him after a cellphone video of the encounter had gone viral online. After calling police and undergoing an interview early Wednesday, the officer indicated that he wanted to press charges.
That officer insisted that his commanding officer instructed him that the smoking wasn’t permitted when another officer told the players it was OK, according to the report.
The zeal of the cop in enforcing the law isn’t the issue here. You can’t smack him on the ass if you think he’s being picky.
Hey, if I’m trying to run in and out of the house to save all my Kenny Rogers albums, last thing I want is some smarty pants fireman telling me I can’t go in there or squirting me with some damn hose while I’m doing it.
Meh, what he did fits the definition of battery. He made a stupid decision, and sometimes stupid decisions come with consequences. He should thank his lucky stars they’re not making it sexual or charging him with more because his stupid decision involved smacking a cop on the ass.
The cop for sure is soft for investigating the locker room for damage while people were still in it.
Or, that’s what he was getting paid to do.
If he’s stupid enough to slap a cop on the ass like that, he deserves to be arrested for felonious idiocy. No such charge exists, so battery will have to suffice.
Just say it’s being investigated and if any players were found to have accepted an impermissible benefit, appropriate action will be taken. Why spout some bullshit about an NFL player handing out fake cash?
who is a junior as well and likely NOT going to enter the draft
He is now
Me and that dude from Dublin that burned himself making a nuclear reactor in his garage are building an EMP weapon for the coming robot apocalypse. We'll be fine.
Michigan fan making light of Ohio state fans complaining about officiating. Fun.
Oh I don't think there's been any shortage of outrage.
At least they’re still #1 in our hearts
That’s a statement from the attorney representing Cade Mays in the matter of him seeking a transfer waiver. I’d take anything he says with a grain of salt and consider it PR maneuvering.
According to a document obtained by 247Sports from the Clarke County Courthouse,
Georgia did what?
I’m quick and elusive
I told my wife to calm down.
The portal itself isn’t really a huge deal. The NCAA easing up on making kids sit for a year is what is really going to change things.
