How will you remember former Raiders defensive tackle Darrell Russell? Will you remember him for being the second overall pick in the 1997 NFL Draft? For being selected the Pro Bowl twice in his first three years? Or will he be remembered for throwing away his talent by being suspended by the league three times for drug possession?
Personally, we will always remember Russell as the guy who held the camera as two of his friends raped an unconscious girl. Or maybe as the guy who was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence while leaving a well-known brothel in Nevada while awaiting the said sex crime trial.
Said former Raiders tackle Lincoln Kennedy: "He was a big kid like me who had a big heart. He couldn't say no to anybody."
Like when his friends said, "Hey Darrell, why don't you hold this video camera while we rape this unconscious girl." Dude couldn't say no. It is a shame that Greg Haidl wasn't riding in the car.
Hell sure is becoming a crowded place this week with Russell and Tookie Williams.

From our fan, J.J. "Russell, 29, was a passenger in a car driven by former USC teammate Mike Bastianelli that went out of control about 6 a.m. and hit a curb, tree, newsstand, fire hydrant, light pole, another tree and an unoccupied transit bus," Lt. Paul Vernon said.
That's more hitting than he ever did as a raider.
Yep, those are my readers. Send us the hate mail in the
