    I think the ones that found him guilty and wanted him cut w/o evidence need to say sorry..Those are the ones where their 1st post was cut him...they didnt even wait for facts

    Forgive me for wanting people to man up to their mistakes..I have done it a few times...

    And if they arent willing to, then I am curious as to why?

    No charges filed YET! He still has a court date on the 7th.

    While I don't see him being charged at this point, mainly because his girlfriend has changed her story. Which one of her stories is true, we will never know. It does not mean he is innocent, it means there would not be enough evidence to charge him. (If of course he did it.) The down side is, if he did, he will more than likely do it again. If it was just an accident, then we will hear no more. I hope for her sake it was the latter.

    Point is (people are missing this)

    No facts came out and people ASSUMED he was guilty...

    That is my only issue...Yes you are very right, maybe he did do it, and might be found guilty..But wait till it is announced..Dont convict until then

    Here's my apology, just for longtimefan. This is the first paragraph I posted on this thread:


    I added the emphasis. Sorry for being so reasonable.
    :D

    Green Bay -- One day after appearing in court, Erik Walden was in the Packers' locker room Tuesday. The outside linebacker is currently involved in an ongoing domestic-assault case with his girlfriend.
    Without getting into the case or his status for this weekend, Walden apologized several times.
    "I want to apologize to entire organization, my teammates and the fans," Walden said. "It's an ongoing process and I respect that process. It's just unfortunate that I brought something negative for so much positive that's going on with this organization. I'm cooperating fully."
    After spending the weekend in jail, there was a new development in Walden's case Monday. District Attorney John Zakowski indicated that his girlfriend's story had changed. Initially, she had told authorities that Walden hit her. Now, Zakowski says, the accuser says she hit Walden first and he was acting in self-defense.
    Walden's girlfriend received four stitches to her forehead and injured her thumb.
    "It's an ongoing process," Walden said. "And again, I want to elaborate on I apologize to this organization, my teammates and definitely the fans."
    When asked if he's resigned to the fact that he may not play Sunday against the New York Giants, Walden said "absolutely." It's hard to imagine any action from the league yet since the case is ongoing. Walden's next hearing is Dec. 7. Zakowski is still determing if charges are possible, difficult considering the changing story.
    "Again, I just want to apologize," Walden said. "I feel terrible about the situation. I'm just ready to move on and play football."

    wrong one..

    Posting Articles:
    There has been a number of occasions where a user wants to post an article from another site. We are completely IN FAVOR of posting articles from another since that creates a good discussion on this site. However, there are some guidelines that need to be followed.

    The most basic concept when posting articles from another site is to NOT copy the entire article and post it on this site. Ideally, you would ONLY be copying the first couple of paragraphs with a link back to the original article. Also, you should wrap those couple of paragraphs in a quote tag.

    The one thing that NEVER should be done is copying articles from PAY sites. We do not allow this at all and could get us in trouble if we post content from paid sites.

    You don't see this a whole lot on our team, our players are always out of trouble, hopefully he learned his lesson. He wouldn't be playing if we didn't have someone injured.

    That's one thing you can't say about the Pack, we don't go after those "bad boy" reputation players like the Jets do (Plaxico, Santonio Holmes) or the Eagles (Vick)


    This one incident may make us look bad to some, but you have to remember we aren't signing all the super bad boys that stay in trouble, so it don't really bother me.

    OK, No need to start a new thread- just don't copy the entire article, that is what you are saying- Correct?

    Indeed. Copying the entire article is an infringement of copyrights. If you want to post an article, only copy less than a paragraph or a few key sentences from the article and use quotes:

    Also be sure to provide a link to the original source of the media.

    I feel like you think people owe YOU an apology, and I think you need to get over it. We're entitled to have opinions, and I'm not going to apologize for mine. I for one remain skeptical, finding it awful convenient that she just suddenly changed her story.

    In fact, it sounds like District Attorney John Zakowski agrees with me:

    Maybe he spiked it out of excitement at his house and it bounced up awkwardly and hit his girl. Or tried to throw it like the guy for the giants that accidentally hit the camera man in the face.

    karma wise, we could probably win it in spite of walden's bad juju being on the roster,
    example: Big Ben won that superbowl ahead of kurt warner and larry fitzgerald.... Kurt (disney movie life) Warner got robbed for Big (probably guilty) Rothaothelaishpsburger ... Karma be taking naps like a mo fo. :eek:

    You know everyone needs to let this run it's course before making judgements. I don't want to minimize violence against women. It is a serious problem and the laws for an immediate arrest exist because in many cases the victim is in fear for her life and won't press charges on her own.

    That being said. My ex was a very violent person and there was one occcasion in which she was physically attacking me. I don't remember what with but i remember it was hurting so I pushed her away. I'm 6'2' and back then weighted about 230 and was a rock, she was 98 pounds soaking wet. My intent was not to hurt her, just get her off me but, in the act she was hurt.

    By today's laws I would have been arrested and if you look at a 6'2' 230lb guy against a little 98 pound woman. who would you think was the victim?

    Am I making my point? Let the facts that eventually will come out loud and clear speak. In the meantime everything else is alleged and gossip.
