Thats pretty sad...but you have to pay the consequences for your actions. Tough luck but if you only have yourself to blame.

don't get involved with a woman? nah, just don't threaten and hold them against their will. move on. seven years does sound really rough, especially if he doesn't have a criminal history, but i don't know the details of the case.

women are extremely protected by the law (don't take that the wrong way, not advocating women beating here), but i have a hard time seeing a judge dish out seven years if there wasn't substantial physical evidence and witness accounts. again, could be wrong...justice system has fvcked up plenty of times for that to be true.

anyway, amusing/funny the way he kept looking at the lawyer incredulously like, 'yo, you gonna fix this right?' :oldlol:

The lawyer can still fix this. Just appeal the shit outta this shitty ruling.

You can say this about any guy. The stupidest thing any guy can do is to have a long term girlfriend/wife in his 20s. It makes no sense to me. You are basically blowing the best years of your life when you should be out exploring the world and figuring out life. I will never understand why any man with a pair of balls would ever want to settle down, especially early in life.

I think it depends on the person and their experiences. And sometimes, folks have to know when they come across someone that's worth hanging onto. It's not always terribly easy to find someone we truly, truly fit with, so if guys stumble upon that early on, I cannot really fault them.

On the flip side, and not regarding the unlawful situation mentioned in the first link, I have seen my fair share of former players of mine who've been on track to becoming college athletes, only to be distracted and lose their will to work due to finding themselves a woman late in their high school career. Usually when we start noticing a formerly committed player beginning to skip workouts and open gyms, or not showing up to the courts in the summer, we can bet it all has to do with a female.

I remember having an assistant coach who didn't know much about basketball, but one time he told us to wait on obsessing over the ladies until after our basketball careers because the ladies would always be there but basketball wouldn't, and I thought it was crazy at the time, but he might have been on to something. It was probably the most poignant piece of basketball advice he ever offered.

The law is messed up tho, if a woman did this to a man she'll probably get away with it with a $25 fine

His reaction makes me believe he is innocent. Sad if he really is, if he isn't then good job judge.
