The most important point should be irrelevant so we can sign Dirty Harry Johnson. Didn't his bodyguard get killed while in his employ? Lordy, pass already.
We sign Tank because we didn't sign Walter Thomas. If we could bring big Walt for a looksee which lasted for a few minutes then certainly we could've signed Tank yesterday. I think that's a goodnuff reason.

An article from the Chicago Sun-Times on the report from Tank's arrest. I'm not looking to continue the discussion here, but it was an interesting article and showed a lot about the what kind of person Johnson really is.

tweeky annoyed me :P

Billy will never be back, I can assure you. The only other person that will never be back is 08, and that suits me just fine.

Damn dude, that's the first time I've seen you post in forever and you're already laying down the law. LOL

And I remember lurking these boards a couple months before Billy "left". From what I saw, no one here particularly liked him.

I liked him. I thought he was an excellent poster. Yes, he was a bit controversial, but a solid poster nonetheless.

yeah have to say i would not mind signing the guy. the whole dwi doesn't worry me. to me it is a bs charge. basically the guy passed their test and then they tried to charge him with something else. so basically we have a legal limit and if you are not over that we are still going to charge you. whole lot of non-sense.

euph yeah you can stop someone from trying to put food on their table. happens everyday. i do not think this recent incident warrants the type of coverage it received.

I say no to the signing. There is a good group of character guys on this team and this guy has no character. Why sign a guy if you are not going to know if he's going to be there for you week to week barring injuries? Especially, if he is already having problems with the personal conduct policy. Also, New Orleans is the best place to get drunk and get shot at. Being that Tank had problems with those two in the past, I say no.

I don't trust him and I doubt anyone on this team would trust him, so why bother? Walter Thomas got a shot as an undrafted free-agent. Probably didn't even receive a signing bonus and was cut 12 minutes into the first practice of rookie minicamp. I don't care how big or good he is. Bad character and bad decisions hurt the team and we don't need either.

I'd rather see some studs signed at linebacker. They'd help the defense all-around
