The Court Room is back! Are you ready?

All Rise the Honorable Judge VCLAW is once again presiding!!!

Court has officially resumed you may now be seated and please feel free to enjoy the ride!

First off the court would like to thank the wonderful jurors ( you all know who you are, for being so patient and also for pushing for another court room sitting) for there support and continued great view points and verdicts, it is much appreciated as with jurors like yourselves you truly do make the Court's job that much easier.

Now lets get down to business shall we.................................
.................................. now bear with us we need to spin around the league it has been a while now so I will start from the top of the files and go from there.

First on the docket:

 The case of falsified and fraudulent retirement, the two co- accused in this case are one Junior Seau and Dante Culpepper.

In regards to this case there is not much the Court would like to say, Dante Culpepper must have been in a financial crisis in order to come out of retirement and play Quarterback for the Detroit Lions, I mean who really wants to pack up everything, move to Detroit of all places and than go get hit every time you take a three step drop trying to make a simple slant pass, in this case I think Dante Culpepper should have hired a better agent! Now in the case of Junior Seau, who has recently come out of retirement to help his former team in a time of need due to the injuries that the New England Patriots face on the defensive side of the ball. It was quoted that Seau " wanted to help his former team" Now all I can say to this and I know this will sound very biast on the courtrooms side however I would like to know where that thinking was when Shawn Merrimen got hurt I mean you used to play for the San Diego Chargers to why do you not help them out as well why are you only willing to come out of retirement for one of you former teams, I think that by doing this it shows us how athletes far to often will burn bridges with out even realizing what they are doing to the fan.

The Verdict: I will leave this case for the jury to discuss and conclude considering the fact that I do have a heart felt investment and personal feelings about the way one of the accused has conducted himself however in my eyes they are both guilty of being foolish men that allow other foolish men to make there decisions for them!!!

Second Case on the Docket:

 The case of Plaxico " I shot myself Burress", the accused is obviously one Plaxico Burress.

This case is far from over, as a matter of fact the evidence is just beginning to come in and people are already tired of hearing this story, however i do feel that the courtroom must make a ruling of some kind in regards to the whole " Latin Quarter " incident! So here it is....

The Verdict: After long consideration of only some of the facts the courtroom is willing to conclude that, yes indeed Burress is a moron, I mean it is one thing to carry a gun in the first place make sure you have the right permits and then even if you do have those permits make sure you know how to use a gun, and at the very least don't go shooting yourself in the leg, I mean there are a ton of rival NFL team fans that would love to do that for you, there is no reason for you to make there life easier and more joyous is there? And if all that fails and you still feel the need to carry a gun however you are to incompetent to learn how to use that gun than please do us all a favor and BUY A GUN WITH A SAFETY ON IT!!!! Either that or maybe you and Michael Vick can get together and be the best team to come out of Rikers island. In say 40 years or so!!!!

Ok folks the court is now going to go into a brief recess, however before i do that I was curious as to what the jurors would like on the docket for next week ,the courtroom is open for ideas and will take the top three ideas and will submit them as the docket for next week, so we look forward to hearing all the feed back and also look forward to reading the Jurors own opinions as well.

Some Ideas for next weeks Docket: Should A.J. Smith be fired in San Diego by the Chargers?
Are the Titans still for real?
The new Steroid scandal?
How Arizona Finally made the Playoffs?

These are just some ideas I ask the jurors for there input as to what next weeks docket should be!

Court is now in Recess!!!

The Law Has Spoken!!!!!

CanEngJohn  my Canadian friend, great points you make to severe the two cases maybe to be fair we should have done that, Another note to that case is the fact the Patriots also signe Rosevelt Colvin which I think was the better hire.

Great Ideas for the next docket and thank you for taking the time to not only read but as well for your input in the courtroom!

Your Lordship ...

In the matter of the first case I jmust split my opinions.  I first must declare my conflict of interest in being a Patriots fan.  I believe the cases against Junior and Dante are different and shopuld not be grouped together. 

Junior is walking into a system and role he is used to and onto a team with playoff possibilites.  Not too many football players willing to turn down a chance of another ring. 

Dante has commited himself to purgatory in order to redeem himself from the hell he placed himself into in the first place.  Also with his QB ego he probably felt the Detroit receiving corps would be fun to play with.  I be he does not take his offensive line out to dinner too often.  This reminds me of the movie "Any Given Sunday" with Pacino.

In the matter of the second case. I do not feel it derserves comment.

On a final note your Lordship I must suggest the following cases are getting ready for judgement. The case of the possible playoff spot with the defendant  Philadelphia Eagles and the plaintiff  Dallas Cowboys. 

Also the case of the missing points with the defendant Pittsburgh Steelers and the Plaintiff the rest of the league. 

Or quite possibly the case of the missing playoff spot - defendants 10-6 Miami Dolphins and 10-6 New England Patriots.

Old Tom you may be granted your adjournment due to the fact that you work far to hard my friend and I do understand your busy schedule so take your time look at all the evidence and then get back to us my friend.

As for the Arizona reasoning by Rob Toxin I do agree with you slightly however there is still a little more to the whole eqaution than just the other teams in their division stinking, there are many intangibles to this case that I look forward to discussing.

And Mk yes you wait patiently, just for you even if it is not a top three idea I will add it to the Docket for one of our most prized Jurors! (lol)
And that is involving the case of whether or not the Titans are still for real!

Well keep all the great comments coming my friends and I can not wait for next weeks sitting, it should be  a good one and we will see what this weekend adds to the plate for our jurors!!!

Take care my friends!

How Arizona Finally made the Playoffs?

The answer to that question is easy. The answer is: because San Francisco, Seattle and St Louis were absolutely dreadful this year.

Good day your Honor, I could'nt agree more on the Plaxico incident, these individuals have God given talents that they just waste on foolish recreation. I don't oppose packing a gun, but when you need it to have fun and party, your at the wrong place.  Instead of grabbing a couple bottles of good Bourbon, or a keg or two and sitting in your warm kozy crib with friends, your address now will be at New Yorks Big House and your career has been ruined and everyone has forgotten about how you caught the winning touchdown in last years Super Bowl. These Super Stars think their above the laws and can't get into trouble, well, Plaxico has lost his career, lost any Hall Of Fame consideration, lost credibility and respect with fans and friends, and has also cost one of his team mates his future and possible career by having him help you cover up your idiotic antics and driving a wedge through the middle of the team. All cause you wanted to play big man with the boys. What a Waste.     

May I ask for an adjournment Judge Claw, as I am just getting back from Denver and sorting through the evidence whether the Broncos will win the AFC West ? Thank you your Honor.

Congrats Judge VCLAW on a great job!  I mostly just keep track of my favorite teams, so the only issue I really know anything about out of the ones you discuss is Dante Culpepper.  On this, I agree with you.  Culpepper has not yet proved (for me anyways) that he is over the injury that had been affecting him the last two years.  He has been OK under center for the Lions, but the Lions need to rebuild their franchise around young guys if they ever want to accomplish anything long term.  They need to keep Kevin Smith and start Drew Stanton, and draft somebody that is actually good next year.  Then maybe they will no longer be the joke of the NFL.  I agree with you - why would Cold Pepperoni want to come out of retirement to play for the Lions anyways?  Did he think he would turn the franchise around overnight and become a hero?  I for one would like to know.

Welcome back Judge VC

In the first case on the docket, yes Mr. Culpepper must be desperate and didn't like the 8 to 5 like the rest of us must endure.  Although were else is an ex Raider to go?  As far as Mr. Seau, who's to say he was even contacted when Shawn Merriman went down?  It was thought that they had a very able bodied backup ready to step in and perform well.  This said, several teams feel it better to work within their own system thru the draft and develop their own talent, did the Chargers look to other free agents to fill this void?  Also, as I had not followed the story of Junior Seau's final year in San Diego as you, is seems to me that it was a decision by management that they prefered to move on without him, and Junior wanted to leave.  So the burning bridge possibility still stands.  

In the second case of Mr. Burress, this seems to be yet another incedent of a person with gifted athletic talent not realizing how good they have it and squandering it thru prima donna like actions.  Whether this jurors understanding of the story is true or not, but the weapon in question was tucked into pants.  When said weapon slid past the beltline and down the leg, the weapon was stopped of its decent by grasping the trigger.  With  the amount of money Mr. Burress was earning, one would think that if he felt threatend by going out on the town there would be many qualified individuals who could provide safe and adequete security.  If the state of New York finds him guilty, he could find himself on a forced vacation from football a-la-Michael Vick.  Not to say he is currently in the same class as this scumball who felt the need to train dogs to fight to the death, but he has firmly put his career at risk.

You have some good ideas for the next docket.  Some of my suggestions might be:

1. What has caused the fall of the usual powerhouses of the Chargers and Packers

2. The rise of the Dolphins, is the Tuna that good?

I look forward to the next session.
