If Pastorini, who i was a huge faan of...thinks CBAis so easy, why doesnt he get involved? as a person who has been involved in CBA talks,....sometimes it isnt as easy as itcsounds when the majority of active members is as active as the NFL players were.
Before throwing the F bomb on a guy who maybe was doing his best against an ARMY of NFL lawyers, try getting more involved andattempting to push your best interest closer to a priority than the active players priority

just saying

Someone wrote Pastorelli that is funny in itself. Yeah I liked the Human Flak Jacket when he played but I was also young and gullible in those days. Dan was always in and out of the news always bad stuff. He chose to play away his money and now he is crying because fame and fortune has passed him by.
He is probably broke and living in someones basement next to the washing machine.

From Wikipedia
Pastorini raced hydroplanes, drag-raced cars, judged wet T-shirt contests, and starred in a 1974 B-movie called Weed: The Florida Connection and then co-starred in a 1979 Lee Majors movie called Killer Fish. He married glamour model June Wilkinson, who appeared in Playboy Magazine. She is British and 9 years older. They had one child, a daughter, and later divorced.

Dan Pastorini drove a Top Fuel Dragster as part of the NHRA Full Throttle (Winston) Drag Racing Series in the mid 1980s. He collected several national event victories. His first came in Atlanta at the NHRA Southern Nationals in 1986.

Pastorini currently lives and works in Houston. He currently is launching a new line of food products.

Added comment: Yeah The Pastorini Pastry & Pastrami Company

If your still awake here is the news article.

After attending a Boys & Girls Club charity dinner in Bryan on Sunday evening, Pastorini allegedly caused a three-car accident in Bryan later that night.

According to the Bryan Eagle, Pastorini's white Mercedes "was traveling south in the inside lane when it hit the back of a Toyota Tacoma that was in front of it, pushing the Toyota to the left and spinning it completely around and into oncoming traffic," where "the Toyota struck the left side of a northbound Ford Explorer."

Taken to the hospital with minor injuries (no other drivers were hurt in the wreck), after midnight Pastorini was charged with driving while intoxicated and cited for failure to control his speed and not having a driver's license.

Pastorini had a much more tragic water accident 33 years ago. Pastorini crashed a speedboat onto the shore, hitting a crowd of spectators and killing two people and seriously injuring three more during a race on Lake Mizell in Liberty, Texas on May 22, 1977. Pastorini's boat veered into the crowd after its engine and automatic steering mechanism reportedly both failed. Found innocent of criminal responsibility, Pastorini later settled a $1.5 million lawsuit filed by the parents of one of the survivors out of court.

From the data presented, he must have lost all his wealth in settlements. I think we need to invent a word for the kind of ungrateful and belligerent overdeveloped sense of entitlement exhibited by the likes of this "person."

I generally just use the word "tool", although lately I've become quite fond of the term "douchenozzle".

I'm a fan of Pastorini, and I still like him. I know he has a good side, and when in the right company, his head is on right. I could tell you about a
dozen good things about him. I dont need Wiki to tell you about a dozen
pieces of questionable things about him. I remember it all. I am biased, as Pastorini is who I was when I played in my Grandma's yard.

I have a bad-ass cousin who does stupid stuff, who I love like a brother. Thats the relationship Houston people have with Pastorini. He, by the way is not anywhere near broke or forgotten here.

This was a stupid thing for him to say, and he owes Drew Brees an apology. Even if you feel they owe you something, you have to keep in
mind your perception-- you dont want to sound "entitled," and I halfway
agree they are. A lot of Americans would be thrilled to get 1,000 extra/ month. Its my job to take care of me, and make sure I save my money-- nobody elses, and you could live comfortably on the money, he has no doubt wasted, racing, drinking, and chasing booty.

You sure dont do yourself any favors dropping F-bombs on one of the best guys in all of Sports. Pastorini does still get considerable income for public appearances, autograph signings, etc. The last thing he should do is erode the Houston public's dubious reverence for him.

I hope Pastorini, and my beloved bad cousin get their sh** together, and live happily on.

Drew Brees, of course, is and will be just fine.

I like Skymike's analogy with his cousin it does put things in perspective.
