Reconsidering Plaxico Burress

The Giants lost its first play off game. It won only 1 game out of 6 since Plaxico shot himself in the leg. It’s noble to set a strict rule or example, but I thought the quick decision made by Giants was too harsh . He was not even convicted, doesn’t the law say you’re innocent till proven guilt? Why shouldn’t he be given the same opportunity? Drunk drivers and drug dealers all get to enjoy it.

When can the government or SEC learn from the sporting leagues, that rules do apply and that accountability means something. I don’t think that a coach or a player who fails to perform and they would be showing the door with a $250m bonus or severance package. Same goes to the government officials, look at Hillary who ran for higher office for 1 or 2 years while still being paid as NY senator. She wasn’t doing her job, why should she still have that job when she failed to win the nomination? Shouldn’t they resign from the post to run?
