D. Clark's rental home in Lakeland, Fla. (Bay News 9) Posted by Josh Katzowitz

UPDATED (9:15 p.m.):
Here is Clark's response, via text message to the Chicago Sun Times:

"People know who I am and what I stand for and if the city wants to play hardball because I had bad tenants, then that's fine. I've been trying to help them help me for the last year and a half to get the bad tenants out.

"Does any(one) think I want that going on in one of my many rental properties?

----------

According to Bay News 9, a home owned by Bears TE Desmond Clark has been seized by Lakeland, Fla., police, because known prostitutes and drug dealers frequently were spotted spending time there.

"This has been a thorn in our side, I want to say for at least four years," officer Adrian Rodriguez told the TV station.

Rodriguez said he and Clark have had phone conversations and that Clark agreed that the property is a problem.

But on Jan. 15, after seeing no progress, the City’s Nuisance Abatement Board decided to shutter up the rental property, meaning Clark and his landlord brother, Ralph Wilson, lose ownership rights for a year.

Here’s hoping Clark isn’t counting on those rental fees in lieu of a lockout. Because he’s not going to be making any money on it for 2011.

No noe on this forum should be serious with this story.  Bottom line is that it is f'in hilarious and we all have seen similar places around our stomping grounds. 

"This has been a thorn in our side, I want to say for at least four years,"

That is CLASSIC!!!!!  It has taken 4 years to finally crack down on this joint because it is probably known that a NFL player owns it and Desmond Clark is a stand-up guy.  I guess enough was enough for Johnny Law!  LOL!

You don't even know how much money Josh Katzowitz earns per year, so you really shouldn't have had the audacity of saying that he has a low income budget. That was a huge false assumption on your part.

Uncalled for remark here by you Josh - "Here’s hoping Clark isn’t counting on those rental fees in lieu of a lockout. Because he’s not going to be making any money on it for 2011."


Ask yourself, If your in a situation where you may be out of a job for next year living the lifestyle these players live...how would you feel.
You'd be devistated losing your low income budget you make writing terrible article's nevermind losing millions.

Its not the landlord's responsibility for what activity goes on in their property?  What dream world do you live in?

It was a forclosure. Picked it up for 10 grand. Already profited. And why is it the landlords(owners) responsibility to enforce drug and prostitution laws. Its not. Look, he probably has 20 or more properties and he has a management team to care for his rental properties.
I dont find fault here. Other than cops/courts doing their job kicking them out of the home. Especially if they knew their was bad tenants and criminal activity.
