Put Burress in Jail
Plaxico Burress needs to go to jail. No, this isn't about bringing guns into a club. Let’s not let this dissolve into a rant about our personal, constitutional freedoms.
Although, this raises an interesting point. Rod Woodson recently gave some advised a future NFL player to avoid places with a metal detector. To which our friend, EB, wisely pointed out that the rule would eliminate airports and court houses. The later which Burress should strive to avoid.
But he needs to go to jail for giving Eli Messiah a Super Bowl ring. And the judge should throw the book at him and make an example of Burress for this crime against humanity.
We all got a glimpse of what the Burress-less Giants, and to a more real extent the Burress-less Eli would look like. And it was wonderful. Eli was exposed as a fraud during the playoffs. Having the defense carry Eli is bad enough, he shouldn’t be allowed to have Burress, too.
All of the plea deals should include a provision that Burress can no longer play for the Giants. That’s only fair.
