Aldon Smith stabbed this morning...
 
"The Sheriff's department this morning were called to a party at which two people were shot and once was stabbed. Smith's injury is not believed to be serious."

Figured it may be an interesting discussion.

Two incidents this offseason. I wonder what Goddell will think of this.

bigbluedefense 06-30-2012 06:02 PM

Aldon Smith is a beast. He's like the LB version of JPP. Hope he keeps his head on straight and stays out of trouble,and if he focuses on football, the sky is the limit.

Ness 06-30-2012 07:28 PM

I almost had a heart attack. Jesus.

I'll just assume it's one of the Lions' players that did the shooting and stabbing.

Defintely not the kind of headlines you want to be making a month before camp. Apparently he threw a little house party at his home. Things got out of hand and he got stabbed while trying to break up a fight. He probably thought he was doing the right thing after the DUI by not going out and partying....the kid seems to be a little snake-bitten. That being said, may be best if he leaves the partying and the alcohol alone for awhile.

It's the offseason. The Lions are too busy getting high and driving drunk. Those guys are smart; they save their violence for the football field.

He probably realizes that now. You can really have an "Ah-Ha" moment when somebody basically tries to kill you.

Well, what are you gonna do? Think about it. A lot of these guys came from nothing, and even if you are a third string player on an NFL team you are still making a ridiculous amount of money. A lot of these guys are going straight out ball when they get that first paycheck. Finally they can live the lifestyle that is glamourized in music videos and movies. And really, when you have a lot of "yes" men saying this and that to you, certain women that tag you, along with a bunch of money...conventional logic fails. You really don't know what it is like until you are in that position unfortunately. I bet a lot of people here would succumb to doing a lot of decisions that don't seem so smart if they woke up the next day with Aldon Smith's bank status as their own.

lol I can't blame them though, I'd be doing the same thing.

This is why I personally believe as pro-athlete you just need to forgo partying. It's fine for us normal people because we're not famous (and therefore not a target) but when you're famous and you're throwing parties bad stuff always seems to happen.

It's just not worth it. Or if you're going to have a party, it should only be with a small group of trusted friends.

I agree with Ness' assessment, though.

It is why I love Kevin Durant for the most part he stays out of the spotlight. 24/7 basketball.

bigbluedefense 07-01-2012 12:37 PM

Ok I went from loving Aldon Smith to hating him after watching that video. Visionary Villionz? Really?

What a douchebag.

That looked like an epic party though. I should have been an athlete.

What? You thought every young black athlete with money was going to be as humble as Barry Sanders?

Not sure why he's a doucebag for attending a pool party sponsored by a clothing company.

Haha same. If I was an athlete I'd be spending the majority of my time actually honing my craft and improving. I guess if I knew people were paying me an absurd amount of money to do one thing I'd make damn sure I earned it and was good at it.

I read an article during his rookie year in Seattle how he would go over to kids houses and play video games and **** with them in his spare time. The dude rules.

Vizionary Villainz is a fledgling clothing company that gave Aldon Smith a ton of free gear and probably a pay check for allowing them to have a photshoot at his pool party.

He might be a douche. He might not. I don't know how the video should be the determining factor.

part of the saints bounty scheme, clearly

Aldon is a hero!

He's smart enough/fortunate enough to stay out of trouble. He clubs just like a great many young athletes.

Ness 07-01-2012 07:19 PM

But, phlysac what happened to 24/7 basketball? Do you mean to tell me all the fluff pieces that come out in the media painting young, successful, and wealthy athletes in a positive light where they could possibly do no wrong aren't the end-all-be-all of someone's personal life? You mean Kevin Durant isn't just going to little kids homes and playing video games with them? He's actually out poppin bottles in the club...in public? WTF....
