Chris B,Get back into football? Really? Is it all about football? How
about some lessons in life be learned here?
There is something wrong with this story. The man is a weapon. He can kill
with his bare hands. And he has shown that he cannot control himself.Are
the prisons full?Why would a judge essentially dismiss the case with
supervision?Surely the judgment of his wife is not enough reason to plea
bargain.A rational person would give him a second chance if he threw a
heavy object across the room and hit her. He went on a tirade that lasted for
several minutes, involved a number of weapons and spilled out onto the
street.This was not a moment of anger.What am I missing here?
Some people would support a ball player no matter what they do, who cares if
they rob, beat their wife's,steal Girl Scout cookies, it doesn't
matter just help our team
I'm pretty sure it's already been announced that Leota has been
dismissed from the team for good, as he should be. Hence the title "Ex-U.
Football Player."It's a privilege to play football, anybody
who commits such an awful crime should lose that privilege permanently.
Motorbike, I hope you are right but we'll see. I was extremely
disappointed in Whittingham's response after the incident. He did say this
behavior can't be tolerated, but he also said he'll support him and
the family as things get resolved, or something very similar. I would have
liked for Whittingham to be a man, and say what he would have said if a man had
beaten Whittingham's daughter. I highly doubt Whittingham would have said
he'd support continue to support him and their family. I think he would
have said that such a man never deserves to see the light of day again, at the
very least. Remember he's a coach who gave a kid a scholarship soon after
the kid robbed several people at gunpoint. If he welcomed that kid with open
arms, I wouldnt say its impossible that Whittingham would welcome back this guy,
if he though he'd help the football team. I'm just guessing that afer
the robbing at gunpoint incident happened, you probably wouldnt have guessed
that Whittingham would have patted him on the back with a scholarship would you
Chris B,Some people should never be let back onto a football team -
Leota is one of these people.I'm quite certain Kyle Whittingham will
feel the same on this one.
Am I reading this correctly? A man who nearly beat his beautiful wife to death
is going to receive 3 misdemeanors? I'm mostly unfamiliar with legal
issues like this, but I'm assuming a misdemeanor carries no jail time?Please someone wake me up from this horrible nightmare, where I live in
a society where a man can nearly beat his wife to death and not be put in jail
I agree with the other comments here. This is a ridiculously angry and violent
person and someone that I wish no plea bargains would've been offered to.
He deserves to be kept far away from the rest of well functioning society.
I hope he can fix his anger issues, pay back society, make good with his wife,
and return to helping the football team.
The plea deal is letting him off easy. Very brutal crime, disgusting and
barbaric. He needs some serious jail time...years of it.
Nas doesn't deserve a plea deal. He should be locked up for a VERY long
As the brother of a woman who was physically abused by her husband, I have no
sympathy or respect for these poor excuses of "men." Any man who abuses
a woman, strangles her, tries to stab her with a pole should be put in jail and
the key thrown away. Please I hope no one feeds us the line "he's a
good person who made a mistake". No good person in the history of the world
has ever strangled a woman and tried to stab her. He is the definition of evil.
Throw away the key!
