    That's for sure. But, Jeff knew what he was getting into. There was some red flags with Tru. I still have faith in him, perhaps just a dumb mistake.

    Happens every offseason multipule times and you hope it aint a Ram. Sadly it is....

    Stupid, stupid, stupid. Never ceases to amaze me, and i dont limit that comment to athletes. Of course, the more money you make, the less excuse you have for not calling a cab. Given that Thomas is reporting a misdemeanor, at least it appears that he wasn't on the Justin Blackmon plan of .22 or higher, but in any event, this can't be seen as good news.

    ramming speed to all

    This isn't good but overall it doesn't really matter. People will forget about this when another player gets a DWI next week.

    This is always the problem of the offseason. The players have too much time on their hands, and start getting in trouble. They should all follow Gangway's lead.

    Re: Tru Johnson Arrested for Drunk Driving

    Can someone clarify how it is a misdemeanor?

    There aren't a lot of details, but a felony DUI usually requires an injury or death, high blood alcohol level, or repeat offense. I'm assuming none of those applied to Johnson.

    ESPN reported this:

    Police detective Travis Welsh tells KECI-TV that Johnson was pulled over shortly after 2 a.m. for driving without his headlights. He refused a breath test.

    Re: Tru Johnson Arrested for Drunk Driving

    Most DUI's are misdemeanors, unless someone's injured or killed.

    Interesting to note, however, he was arrested at 2:00, booked at 3:00, and released on bond at 4:00.
    (Wonder how he got home - if you're drunk at 2:00 am, my guess is you're not sober at 4:00, but who knows?)

    Missoula's pretty small - curious to see how it plays out.

    On a somewhat similar note, (I don't do twitter), but saw a JJ tweet , to the effect (paraphrasing) that "R.I.P to the old JJ. Glad he's gone". Good for him, even though I'm still holding my breath (Hub).

    I have no sympathy for DUIs. Extremely stupid thing to do. But it is what it is.

    He called Jenkins to come pick him up. But JJ said he couldn't drive cause he was high as a kite!!!

    (That one's for you Vegas.)

    Are you kidding?

    These young kids are in their brand new Mercedes, Range Rovers, BMWs, among other super-expensive cars, showing off for the ladies.

    Unless they're from NY, I doubt that any of them have ever taken a cab anywhere.

    Absolutely!


    Always a shame, always a shaking of the head of many people that wonder if this kind of incident HAS to be so common! Is it poor parenting? Or the avalanche - type of influence from advertising upon immature youngsters and immature older aduts; perhaps a stupid lack of discipline to "drink responsibly" ... or 'other' reasons. Yes, 'other' reasons will always be there, for sure.

    Some people, young and old, turn to alcohol or other drugs from a legitimate disorder, a mental disorder that associates them to depression and drinking. [I suffer from serious, clinical depression; I have never, ever taken alcohol or illegal drugs to self medicate (I curse alcoholic beverages)]. But so may youngsters turn to beer and booze too soon, too easily. Too foolishly.

    Hopefully TJ will make it one of those experiences from which he WILL learn and not repeat.


    BTW, any comments / response yet from TJ? I'd like to think he's TRUly sorry.



    ...BAAAAH! **BURP!**

    No, really: I'm okay!


    Nooo problem people, no prolbmmm...!
