Denver Broncos: How to spell Relief

DREW0618.gif

Sometimes cleaning out your locker makes a difference. Or in Mike Shanahan's case cleaning out your locker room. Getting rid of Javon Walker, Todd Sauerbrun and Travis "Travesty" Henry is without a doubt the best off-season moves for the Broncos. It gets rid of the riff-raff.

Animation Update: Finishing up the last little bit of my animation about the Denver Broncos. I'm not sure if we will post it this week or ,most likely, the very beginning of next week. Since so many people are out of their offices on Friday during the summer months I don't think putting it online Friday makes much sense. Stay tooned. I'm hoping you'll have as much fun watching it as I have making it.

    Wow. Mike Shanahan in boxer shorts.

    Sexy.

    BLEAH!!!!

    On topic...

    Javon Walker is an idiot. First he sees his teammate die mere feet from him, and now this. Is he actually looking for death? Because the way he's going, he'll eventually find it or it'll find him.

    Sad. Grow up Javon. Get some counseling or something. Retire from the NFL and go live a peaceful life somewhere far away from any city such as Denver, L.A. or Vegas. Get a freaking clue. You're acting like a person with a death wish.

    You're right, Javon Walker is the only professional athlete that goes to nightclubs at 3 in the morning. You grow up Penfold, it's not like he was hanging out on some side street in Compton looking for trouble. He was on the strip in Vegas. Welcome to the real world.

    Actually Jacob, the strip in Vegas is much more dangerous than a side street in Compton, particurlary when you're Javon Walker and you're reportedly flashing cash, spraying champagne on others, and wearing $100K of exposed jewelry to the general public at 3 in the morning. Walker is lucky he's not in a morgue freezer right now.

    Based on your comments, I would take this opportunity to welcome you to your dream world, since you fail to grasp that this is not the first time that Walker has been involved in this kind of situation. He was part of the incident last year prior to the shooting of Darrent Williams. In a bar/club, a scuffle occured between the party of people Walker and Williams were with and other people. This is a guy (Walker) who appears to be looking for trouble, and he tends to find it. Wake up. Stop defending these rich, arrogant, holier-than-thou athletes and start living in reality.

    I fully agree with Marcus' statement that we need to stop this insane practice of defending the actions (illegal or otherwise) of athletes and celebrities. Why is this country so obsessed with knowing every little thing about them and why do regular citizens think that these athletes and celebs are more deserving of protection than anyone else? If Javon Walker had gotten killed instead of injured, I wouldn't care more about the situation than I would if it was Joe Schmo. His incident only made news because he plays pro football. People get killed and maimed in Vegas every day, and for less reason than Walker's situation. Under no circumstances should a person's financial status enter into levels of sympathy. Javon Walker screwed up, and he's vey fortunate to be alive. He might want to rethink continuing to be in the public eye. He's on a destructive path that's probably going to end up ending his life sooner than later. I also agree that Walker probably has a death wish. It's likely that he thinks it should have been him who got shot and killed instead of Williams that fateful night in Denver.

    Jacob still living in Sports Fantasy Island?
    Yeah definitely sounds like it. Rent must be cheaper than living in your Mom and Dads basement covered in athlete shrines.

    I highly doubt Jacob has even been to Compton, much less lived there. I can only imagine he gets his information about Compton from Snoop Dogg music videos.
    The Las Vegas Strip is BY FAR a more hostile environment danger-wise than just about any other place in the U.S. People in Vegas will stalk you. In Compton, if you're not in a gang or a rival gang, you're pretty safe. Jacob, try doing a little research or actually travelling to a destination before generalizing.

    O.J. Simpson and Michael Vick are totally innocent . In his world -
    pro athletes just don't do bad things and should never be locked up.

    The simple fact here is that Walker failed to keep a low profile in a place (Vegas) where a low profile is required if you expect to stay out of trouble. Walker is entirely responsible for his situation. Many people in his position either are found dead or are never found at all. He should count himself as extremely fortunate. The sad part of this whole thing is that he won't bother to learn from this. He didn't learn from the shooting in Denver. He's a lost cause and a waste of good air.
