The NFL Offseason Is Starting Out Well: Packers DT Letroy Guion Was Arrested With 357 Grams Of Weed & $190K In Cash
The officer who searched the truck also found more than $190,000 in one of the bags in which the marijuana was located, according to the police report. Both the currency and truck were seized and secured due to the amount of marijuana found.
According to the police report, Guion was “extremely uncooperative and hostile” while the truck was initially searched. The officer reported that Guion “kept coming toward the vehicle several times saying, ‘Hey man, my money is in there. Don’t let him take my money.'”
Guion then was secured in handcuffs.
The NFL players couldn’t even wait a whole week before getting into trouble. Last year’s offseason was a nightmare on a number of different levels, and it seems like the 2015 offseason will be just as exciting/depressing. In all honesty, where are you going with that much weed and that much money? I can maybe understand having one and not the other. If you just came from selling a bunch of weed you might have some cash on you, and if you just came from buying some weed you’d obviously have the weed on you. But 357 grams of weed AND $190K in cash? That’s outrageous. 357 grams is a lot of anything, never mind drugs. Maybe he doesn’t trust banks? I don’t know, but the rest of the ESPN article went on to say that Guion was currently in negotiations with the Packers on a long term deal. I have a feeling this story might delay that deal.
A cool spin on the Beatles classic. Also proof that Johnny Cash can do everything.
In the least surprising news of the week, as DirecTV’s rights to the vaunted NFL Sunday Ticket package come close to their 2014 expiration date, rumors of who else may bid for them are starting and Google is right at the top. According toAllThingsD, league officials met with the internet giant today and among many topics, the package of rights to air all of the league’s games to out of market viewers came up. As suggested, the folks in Mountain View (and several other companies we can all think of) can certainly afford the reported $1 billion DirecTV has been paying — and YouTube has already shelled out to stream sports in the USand around the world — but whether or not the NFL would actually sell to them is still in question. -Engadget
From what I am reading on the matter, this is a bit of a long shot. It seems that the NFL will again renew its contract with the satellite company DirectTV in 2014. But imagine, just imagine, what watching the NFL would be like under Google’s control? I’m talking streaming from YouTube, tablets, smartphones, and any other device that can get its grubby little antenna on the internet. This would be a total game changer for the NFL and America. More people around the US would see the games they wanted to see, and for me that means watching my Bucs from RI! Like I said, don’t get your hopes up, because they are probably renewing with DirectTV, but you never know, Google has surprised us before.
