  • I expect this type of behavior from Shawn Merriman, but not Maurice Jones Drew. In the future, I hope Mr. Drew can make better decisions when he is not in uniform.

  • Sucker punched the guy.
    Pretty impressive.

  • This story has gotten a lot of “copy and paste” in the media but the facts first reported were incorrect. The media is now full of sloppy lemmings.
