I am leaning towards the Anaheim Saints on this one if anything . It is that whole Mighty Ducks , Angels in the outfield , Disney sport theme thing.

If motivated and lead in the right direction while being given a real opportunity to succeed, he will mature and perform.
So given the opportunity to start for one of the top 20 colleges in the nation was not enough ???

He was dismissed from Florida St. and plead no contest to gambling and stolen check charges in 2003 and was sentenced to probation and community service.

How rare is it for a football player in the top twenty to get into problems with the law in some way, shape, form??? Not very.

In that post I said I didn't want to take anything away from what he did, nor should the team give him as much slack as other players. He screwed up, took his punishment and moved on. He spent a year in the Arena league with success and no incidents. He has moved on, maybe everyone else should too.

About giving him a chance, I don't think we owe him one or anything; I think it's in our favor to give him a chance, guidance, etc and our investment will pay off. People, especially athletes, are a lot more immature in college than afterward, and often it takes just that sort of incident to turn things around. Had he already been making tons of money and all of that happened, then I would say otherwise. (Sully probably won't learn bc he has nothing at stake) Amac had a lot of attention but his actions took away for a short time the limelight, the oportunity to make money and be successful, pretty much everything. That changes a man.

With this pathetic group of coaches ???

Hasbeen is quicker to write a player off as a cancerous distraction , then get the player squared up on the world .

Sheppard has the fine distinction of being able to motivate and properly set an example for the likes of Ryan Leaf .

Not to mention his mentor is Fumbalaya Brooks , the role model who's dedication has led to such great moments as Brooks making plays up in the huddle .

All this added to the thought of when he steps off the field he will enter one of the most distracting environments in the world .

Should be an interesting second chance ......

Alright so hypothetically Amac is a changed man , earns the starting role and comes out firing . What is not taken into consideration in this scenario is the effect that his letting his prior teammates down is going to have. Amac starts throwing bad balls and 10 men in the huddle are going to wonder how much he bet on the game . Not to mention the local press .
