The front office had to have known that this was possible, but based upon their evaluation of his true character and talent they must have felt it was a cheap gamble ... which may still pay off.

I don't care what in the heck he is. This guy is a disgusting individual. Take off your black and gold glasses and imagine if this were your daughter. Read this below and tell me this is okay. Are you aware that he was set for trial for sexual assault in the third degree? That's 10 years in prison in Wyoming. Are you sure you really want a guy like this on our team?

“I feel like he’s not really getting a punishment,” one victim, D.H., said. “I just feel like there should be more that can be done to show that this is not OK.”

The other victim, identified as A.A., told the judge Thursday that the molestation by Granderson left her “empty, depressed and lost.”

The victims stem from an incident when A.A. and D.H. slept at Granderson’s apartment the night after the final UW football game of 2018.

Both said they were awoken to Granderson molesting them.

“I have never been so terrified in my life,” D.H. said through tears Thursday morning. “I sat there and looked for my keys because they had pepper spray on them, but they were nowhere to be found.”

The victims, both student-athletes at UW, expressed frustration at how the university handled the allegations against Granderson.

A.A. said she felt “rejected by the administration of the university” and said university leaders initially treated Granderson “like he was the victim.”

“I was constantly getting bullied by members of the football team, all of whom thought it was OK to call me a ‘ho’ and ‘slut’ to my face,” she said.

And how about one of the disgusting Coaches for Wyoming who wrote this letter: Before sentencing, Granderson’s attorney, Megan Overmann Goetz, read a statement from one of Granderson’s coaches, who expressed support for Granderson and said he was “the type of young man that a coach dreams of being able to work with.”

I'm quite sure if I went to this coach's house and sexually assaulted his daughter or wife, he'd say something quite different.

Let me add: this is no different than the rapist Jameis Winston getting into the NFL after he raped the women in college.

All the idiot Florida State fans called the women whores, etc. Blaming them for even though he raped them.

We make too many excuses for people's behavior, especially football stars.

I'd say most people would say if he did this to their daughter, they'd want to kill him. I know I would.

Not a big fan of classless, disrespectful trash on the team.

You completely lost me with this post.

I hope they take his "rights" and shred them. Let the Cowboys take him.

Why not try and sign Darren Sharper whilst we are at it?

His true character is a criminal, no more needs to be said.

Sharper will forever be the one taint on our 2009 season. He gave us such joy that year, but it leaves a horrible taste in your mouth when looking at his crimes.

Absolutely, I literally worshipped that guy as a hero. He was one of the main reasons I played Free Safety for my UK based football team, hearing that news and what he did was sickening.

He would've eventually got into the Hall of Fame with his stats too. Sharper had some great seasons in Green Bay long before he joined us.

I'm glad I never bought his jersey. I spent a lot of time in 2010 trying to find a Sharper jersey but didn't want to pay a hefty price for it. Would've never got over it had I actually spent the money.

Re: Saints rookie Carl Granderson sentenced to serve six months in jail

Can't help but wonder if Sean Payton is succumbing to the pressure of having won only one SuperBowl with Drew Brees...

Can we merge this thread under K_Major's thread?
