You've got to be kidding me!!!!!
Players have background checks performed when they are drafted, by the teams that have thoughts of drafting per said player. Tinsley dropped to the end of the first round because of his background check, yet the Pacers took a chance on him anyway. Up until last year at club Rio, Jammal was barely a blip on the heart meter when it came to high profile players on this Pacer team or guys getting into trouble. Now he is the poster boy for thuggish behavior in grater Indianapolis.
Marquis Daniels was undrafted bythe Mavericks and played their for two years without incident. He comes to Inday and suddenly hes involved with not one,but two investigations by the same prosecutor.
Why would you have a private investagator follow these guys around day in and day out? Reporting their every move to the team top brass. Thats just ignorant and to think that a professional team would do that is more ignorant.
People like Jim Rome who has a snied opinion about everything that he doesn't agree with says what he says for RATINGS and for his less cerebral fans that watch his show, or listen to his rantings on radio. I find him entertaining, but not very believeable.
After reading Jon Murrays article this morning in the Star. The only thing that can be said to all those who have convicted Tinsley and Daniels in the court of public opinion is you really need to up your IQ's because you all sound really, really STUPID, right now. I don't even like Tinsley as a player, or as an Indiana Pacer, but I do believe in his right of innocent until proven guilty....He wasn't even charged with anything at the Club Rio incident, yet the court of public opinion had him tried and sentenced. Hope that makes most of you feel like proud Americans, because most of your statement on this messsage board make you look far from being one.
