It was not just a random break-in, that much was established. He was somehow involved in something shady. Not a big surprise.
Honestly, anyone (including the Dolphins) who expected Dopey to come back after years of getting stoned and perform got what they deserved.

Seriously...condolences to his family and small child...but if I hear someone breaking in at night, I'm telling my wife to dial 911 and I'm getting out the heavy artillery...NOT a big knife.  And if all I have is a machete, I'm NOT confronting ANYONE in my house at that hour. And apparantly this wasn't the first time his place had been broken into or burglarized.  I don't think we've heard the last about this story, it sounds, I don't know, like there's something weird going on here.  Could be wrong, but it will be interesting to see what happens in the investigation.

His GIRLFRIENDS house located in Florida (Which he had purchased for her after their love child was born) has been broken into 8 days prior to the deadly night, and a kichen knife was left on the bed by the "Burglar" as a warning of some sort (They THINK).

After that happened, he kept a machette next to the bed.

If it had been me I would have:
1) Had a loaded double barrelled shotgun (loaded with 00 Buckshot) lying next to the bed, instead of a big knife.
OR
2) if the girlfriend did not like guns, then ALL three of us (Me, the girlfriend, and our 18 month old love child) would have been sleeping in a different state, or the district of Columbia, so as to be closer to work .........

The Saturday before that muddy night in PITT the stadium had hosted a marathon of FIVE high School playoff games.

Late that night, the field was in a shambles.
Sunday morning they REPLACED the ripped up SOD with new SOD.

After that was done, they covered the field with tarps.
It then started to rain and did so all evening and all night.

The rain worked its way under the tarps and pooled on and under the sod.
Seperating it from the soil. It takes 3 full weeks of non-use for Sod to take root in the soil. Not 3 hours.

Now they are saying it was punks who heard about how nice the home was and all the goodies inside...I can't believe he didn't have at least an alarm system or as you said a nice loaded shotgun nearby. I really hate assholes that feel like they are entitled to stuff YOU have paid for yourself.....because they are too lazy, stupid or just larcenous to bother to make their own money.

Turns out the punks actually KNEW the victims and the layout of the house. One of the punks was dating Sean Taylor's Girlfriends sister and had been in the house on several occasions to visit.

As we head into the final week before the playoffs, I can't help but note that BOTH of my teams will probably remain on the outside, looking in.  But I wanted to thank my opponents for a blast of a season, and for letting a girl play with the big boys.  You are gentlemen, every one!  And may the best team win!

I'll bet you are pleasantly surprised at the outcome in the Acaeum Collectors League.  The past four or five weeks your team has been consistently one of the best.  Honestly I dont see anyone beating the Dragons though....not unless some of his players just have a shit week.  I am actually surprised that I made the playoffs.  Only 4 weeks did I have over 100 points and the only reason I was able to stick with it was because of Tom Brady, a few stellar performances by Terrell Owens, and some really good luck.

Congratulations to the four teams in the championship bracket of the Acaeum Collector's League:

Dragons (Bclarkie)
Screaming Evils (King Of Pain)
Smarmy ShrinkWraps (smarmy1)
Ladies of Pain (lucyjoyce)

Kudos to the four teams in the consolation bracket:

The Killer B's (bspaul41)
Block Wipes (Badmike)
Snit Smashers (mdr003)
Freeport Gargoyles (FormCritic)

Anyone who can finish in the top half with next to zero depth and a waiver wire featuring guys no one has ever heard of has something to be proud of.  To the rest of us, there is always next year  :wink:

Thanks again to everyone who played.

Pleasantly surprised doesn't even come close.  Thanks for the kind words.

LJ (Screaming Iguanas) made the playoffs in the Acaeum League also...but has to face my juggernaut (Tegel Shrews) in the first round.  I'm not taking it easy on the Iguanas because you're a lady...you've proven you're tough enough to take it!  I only hope the Pats don't start resting Tom Brady the next few weeks or so....he's my point whore for the Shrews. Good Luck!

I has happy with the outcome from week 14 - the Smashers were tied for 7th with 5 other teams - six of us at 6-7. I was in 12th though, with a poor points differential.

However... the other five teams I was tied with all lost - so I vaulted from 12th into 7th, and my season continues.

Regards

Mike

I am well aware of the challenge ahead, and would not want any deference on your part - I want to beat you fair and square!  May the best team win!

hey guys!

i had tons of fun playing that game. was great!

i actually found during them weeks that i actually learnt a lot about the game, which was cool!

to actually win 6 games, i was most impressed :)

one thing i learnt is to expect the unexpected. if i had played andre davis in my last game, instead of steve smith, i would have actually just won and would have scraped into the playoffs last.

but ah well you live and learn :)

was a ton of fun. now i have to sit and get bored until the next time!

next time we do a league thing, please let me know as i would like to be in!

now i have to concentrate on training sheesh :)

I see my team, the Miami Dolphins, finally got a win - next stop New England - Deadlord, I bet your Pats are shaking in their boots 8O (Though it would be pretty typical of a Miami team to derail what should be a 100% season for the Pats)

I just wanted to thank Tom Brady and Terrell Owens for playing like a couple of third stringers yesterday and doing absolutely squat.  Trent Edwards actually had the same amount of points as Brady did.  8O  I guess I could blame the weather and/or the Jets' tenacity for Brady's inability to throw a touchdown pass, but what to say about Terrell Owens?  He looked as if he just didnt feel like playing football yesterday.  Tony Romo didnt look particularly good either but a top-tier receiver should be able to catch the ball if it hits him in the frickin' hands.  :x   The Cowboys better get their shit together if they don't want to end up playing at Lambeau field during the playoffs.
