WTF? This man has his whole to life and has to remember this every day and you finish your letter like this? That is past harsh. Especially when no one knew if he could stop on time drunk or not.Also, Reyes didnt cross the "street" at a crosswalk which extremely dangerous on Macarthur causeway.

So what do you want it to say? He has to address what he's being suspended for, doesn't he?

Damn dude. Got chill? I've read numerous posts from liberal posters here on the exact thing I'm talking about (Vick's situation VS Stallworth's) who have said the sentences fit the crimes of each. You sir, GTFO with your BS.

I can't believe i agree with PoT.... Stallworth killed a man while drunk and only got 30 days in jail. A year without pay from the NFL is the least he should be penalized

I repeat: Dante Stalworth is lucky that he lives in a country where being famous is an acceptable excuse for killing someone. GTFO with this "he's already beating himself up about it" nonsense. A regular person would be both beating himself up about it and taking it in the ass for the next 10 years, so you'll have to excuse me if a few words from his boss telling him what a f*ckup he is doesn't entice sympathy. Instead of getting time in the clink he gets a reprimand from his boss that he can crush into a ball and laugh at when he chucks it in the garbage.

SMFH.

is this? He actually concluded his letter to Dante Stallworth with this GOAT jerk move. Am I the only one that has a problem with this?

That's pretty tame to what I'd have said. He did kill someone and barely get a slap on the wrist.

well, when its 7 in the morning and your BAC is still 0.12%, you were pretty ****faced. 0.12 is way more than 2 beers, especially in a guy of stallworths size.

Haha, come on now Booze, you were one of the ones I remember who specifically said Vicks actions warranted his sentence and likewise for Stallworth.

He was right. Stallworth killed an innocent man because of his pathetic druggie habits. He should hear about it for the rest of his time on earth.

You will go to any length to make excuses for a black athlete. But that's not surprising.
