NFL on Plax


Since Ernie is on vacation and a little, tiny piece of news broke, I thought I’d just pop this up on the blog. Former Giants receiver Plaxico Burress pleaded guilty today to weapons charges and serve two years in prison. The NFL released an official statement on Burress, and here it is:

PLAXICO BURRESS is not under contract to an NFL team. In light of his plea today, Commissioner ROGER GOODELL has suspended Burress and informed him that he is ineligible to sign with any team until he completes his jail term. Commissioner Goodell said Burress will be reinstated and eligible to sign with an NFL team upon the completion of his sentence. Burress was notified on June 26 that Commissioner Goodell had initiated a review of the matter for potential discipline under the NFL’s Personal Conduct and Weapons policies. Commissioner Goodell and members of his staff conducted a hearing with Burress and his representatives last Wednesday (August 12) in New York.

    I just read that the two of you are leaving the paper and that they’re laying off most of the staff. It’s a sad day for anyone still reading your newspaper. The two of you are terrific and deserved a far better fate, even from your crummy company.

    On behalf of your loyal fans and followers, let me say thank you. Your insight and writing over the years has been greatly appreciated. Best of luck in the future.

    And on behalf of readers everywhere, to your bosses: Shame, shame on you. What you’ve done to this paper and website is disgusting. I hardly ever read it anymore, and now I shall never read it again. And I will suggest to everyone that it’s not worth their time or money. I hope everyone, including advertisers realize the same thing. You don’t cover my favorite teams. You fire my favorite writers. There’s nothing left now but crap. Thanks for nothing.
