Re: Randy Gregory: "New Orleans is 'pretty boring'..."

I live in the New Orleans area and I choose not to live in that infested crime city. After Katrina a lot of crime has moved to the suburbs. All the French Quarter is the oldest drinking and overprice tourist trap.

While New Orleans no doubt sucks to live in, it can be very cool too.

Kid at that age? That is just ridicolous. While still in high school I ran the family farm, worked part time at the saw mill, coached a youth team while also doing sports myself. I bet most here can look at themselves or a relative that went into the army at 19 or worked their tail of to get into college or whatnot.

I so fed up with these spoiled, ignorant athletes that have been given a free pass all their life and people make excuses for their lack of maturity and blame it on age. it has nothing to do with age but is all about accountability. This guy won't have to learn now either, he'll get picked in the first round and will earn millions while what he really needs is a swift kick in the arse and then to be bagging groceries at Walmart for half a year to give him some perspective.

W.T. Sherman is my favorite General. After all he did order Atlanta to be burned to the ground.

Bro, I was in the military too, but you're not nearly as mature at that age as you are 5 years later. He's not a wife beater, he smoked some pot and put his foot in his mouth... show me someone at his age that hasn't done that?

Spoiled, the athletes that bring millions upon millions into the Universities and are forced to struggle financially as most of them come from backgrounds that are not affluent?

In the words of the White Stripes "You can't be a pimp and a prostitute too"

These guys, especially the ones that make it to the NFL earn every dollar they're given. He needs a mentor, he just needs to be taught not to be a dumbass.

If it doesn't matter who wins or loses, then why do they keep score?

Re: Randy Gregory: "New Orleans is 'pretty boring'..."

Wow, over-react much?
The comment was that New Orleans is boring on a Monday night, and he even includes a little humor and insight. AND he apologizes.
I agree with tweet #3: RELAX. If anything I like the guy more now.

Plus, if it was boring for him, at least it shows he wasn't high.

Any place on Earth can be boring if you cannot find your scene there.

Re: Randy Gregory: "New Orleans is 'pretty boring'..."

I dont think the comment matters too much.

The issue is why bother saying anything that could be taken the wrong way at all, at this time of year, on twitter?

That's almost like smoking weed before you know you're about to get tested during one of the most important days of your life.

This guy is just plain dumb. This won't just hurt his chances with the saints, every GM in the league is watching this guy. He may fall out of the first round now, and to be honest with how dumb he might be, he should fall.
