Probably about 6 months or so ago, I wrote a post about the former security guard in my office building. You may remember him for getting in trouble once he became a Columbus police officer. You see, he was picking up chicks on warrants, telling them to blow him for their freedom, and then taking them to jail anyway. A brilliant plan but poor execution. I mentioned that I would certainly be a dirty cop if I was ever given a gun and a badge. There is no doubt. I would be crooked. I would take food, CD's, DVD's, whatever in lieu of booking someone. No sex or cash though...that's when you get into trouble.
But the thing is, I KNOW that that is wrong. If I get caught with my hand in the proverbial cookie jar, I would want it to blow over because who cares if a cop is taking a bag of Soft Batch cookies instead of busting punks. There are different levels of accepting bribes and those that don't get greedy, don't get busted. That same philosophy works in other aspects of life, too.
Football players accepting benefits from boosters and agents are back in the news again. Why? Because bitches be greedy. Have some fucker buy you a steak dinner but not your parents a house. Have an agent give you a $500 gas card from Sunoco, not 100 fucking thousand dollars. It's just so stupid of these kids to completely shit on their teammates and coaches for an unnecessary pay day that is coming from an NFL team soon anyway.
And they don't even get punished! That's the problem. Reggie Bush and Maurkice Pouncey aren't getting shit done to them in spite of their devious pasts. And it's wrong. This is where Congress needs to step in. Forget about the BCS. No one cares about that. How about somehow and some way making these guys who accepted fucking BRIBES accountable? In any other profession, if you're taking money on the side, you go to prison. Why is college football different? Would anyone be against that? If a college athlete takes money that isn't his and that he didn't work for, he runs the risk of a prison sentence (let's say 8-12 months). We no longer punish the schools or the program. Those Florida and USC kids on the team now should not be doing the time. Fuck that. Send the selfish fucks to the rape house.
Maybe I'm going too far though. How about this? You take money from a booster, you have to live on food stamps for an entire year. You get a free car from a dealer? License gets suspended for 5 years. Your parents are dumb enough to take money from an agent? They should be killed and their son should be forced to eat them. Basically, there has GOT to be consequences to those actually responsible for shitting on their school and collegiate athletics.
Don't think that I've forgotten about coaches either. John Calipari (now on his third school with recruiting violations) should NEVER be allowed to set foot on a campus again. He's had enough chances. It's time that someone kills him for being a scumbag. Same with Pete Carroll.
If anyone disagrees with me on this (that college athletes who accept bribes should be criminally prosecuted), you are dead fucking wrong. Dead wrong. It has to stop. Maybe jail time will finally deter these greedy bastards. If this sounds like a witch hunt, maybe it is. I've been dying to see commenter Daniel do some jail time for the millions of dollars that commenter Li'l Strut funnelled to him throughout his time at anOSU. They both deserve to die and I hope they BURN IN HELL!!!
