The Wolf Huntley Johnson is representing Chris Rainey in his criminal stalking case.
That’s all you had to say.
Filed under Crime and Punishment, Gators, Gators...
I don’t care that they’re making a mockery of law and order down there in Gainesville, Florida. Any day that starts with a “Pulp Fiction” clip is a good day in my book.
Does he represent these players at reduced rates? Does he do it pro bono? Has the NCAA looked into this relationship?
+1 Good question. Does he do pro bono work for a average off the street scumbag or does he only do it for UF scumbags???
I smell NCAA investigation (not).
This may be the reason Rainey was kick off the team, temporarily at least. I wonder if now that he is no longer on the team, representing Rainey pro bono would not be a “benefit to a player.” Once the legal work is done, then he can re-instated and its business as usual.
Just a thought…
How many games is he suspended for?
what’s the over/under for 1/2 a game?
Attempting to maim and rob an athlete of his sight will get you a half. So, threatening to rob a woman of her life? That’s probably one game, barring any self-imposed discipline from Rainey himself.
According to the author, the good news is “the person who called the police was not a UF student” or the consequences could be a lot worse, whatever that means.
What difference should it make if the victim was or was not a UF student? What a load of BS.
I’m sorry but to Irwin Mayer the eye gorge was only a 1 quarter suspension. The player was embarrassed by that and volunteered to sit an additional quarter.
Ah. My mistake. Apparently my brain wasn’t able to retain such insanity.
“There is a growing perception nationally that he doesn’t have control of his players.”
Goodman obviously doesn’t read the Red & Black.
What I find hilarious about that comment is that they make it sound like Urban has great control over players, and Rainey is just making it look like he doesn’t. I’m not trying to compare UGA’s situation with player control over Florida’s.. but this reporter/commentator seems a little worried about being banned from the UF campus to me with that statement.
Irwin and Mark need to have a session with Randy –
“Do you even know how many Miami players have been arrested in nearly four years under Randy Shannon?
That might be the most remarkable stat in college football today. Departed quarterback Robert Marve pulled off a car’s side mirror. A misdemeanor. That’s the only arrest in nearly four years at Thug U.”
Do you think maybe, just maybe, it is a little easier to get arrested in Athens, Ga than in Miami, FL?
I don’t think too many Miami cops are arresting dudes for emerging from an alley.
Good point about the Miami police, who most people know not to mess with in the first place, but sometimes it doesn’t take much to get yourself pulled over by the Coral Gables PD. http://cbs4.com/heat/carlos.arroyo.arrested.2.1523910.html
You ever driven the highways in/around Miami? You can do 90 mph in a 60mph zone, right past Florida State Patrol, and they don’t care. Heck, most of the cops down there don’t go anywhere slower than 100mph. Usually because they’re worried about REAL crimes… you know, drug running, murder, etc…
ACC and UGA PD don’t have much to do other than write traffic tickets and arrest people for piddly BS.
Pat Dooley is reporting that Rainey will miss watching Vision Quest on the team bus ride to Knoxville.
The best parts of Vision Quest all involve Linda Fiorentino.
He is suspended until they need him. Such is life at the UF cesspool er swamp.
He will be back by the UGA-FLA game–guaranteed.
Nah. He’ll be back before that-he’ll play the Bama game.
Interesting comments, considering this:
yeah, we know about the Fulmer cup…so what is your point?
This Huntley Johnson?
Hopefully, he will not give any advice on how to treat women.
As a matter of fact, yes.
…because “[o]ne of Meyer’s [Irwin’s] ‘core values’ for his team is respect for women.”
Granted, this is another embarrassment for UF and Rainey’s actions are indefensible (not counting his attorney). However, fans of the team that won the Fulmer Cup in two of the last three years should be careful throwing stones in your glass house filled with warrants and subpoenas.
Erroneous, this is the only year UGA has won the Fulmer Cup.
Don’t let facts get in the way of a good argument.
But I saw it on the internet… 🙂
That’s what I always say but Serioulsy does have a good point somewhere. We know that if you just counted felony charges and not misdemeanors or traffic citations, we would come nowhere close to taking the Fulmer.
Irwin is entitled to extra credit for
(a) trying to make the Ten Commandments easier to remember by calling them ‘core values’ and reducing the number to five *:
1. Respect for women.
2. No guns.
3. No stealing.
4. No drugs.
*One of Meyer’s “core values” for his team is respect for women. The other core values are no guns, no stealing, no drugs and honesty
and (b) for taking a prank call that was actually a real question that should have been directed to Derek Dooley rather than Irwin:
“… should be careful throwing stones in your glass house filled with warrants and subpoenas.”
This is quite rich coming from you, sport.
The ban hammer can’t be extended to Seriously? Really, no one else is sick of this guy?
