    The Associated Press reports former NFL RB Larry Csonka was fined $5,000 for conducting commercial work in a national forest without obtaining a special use permit. Magistrate John Roberts also ordered Csonka to pay $3,887 in restitution for filming on U.S. Forest Service land without obtaining permits. Csonka is host of "NAPA's North to Alaska," a cable television show that appears weekly on the Outdoor Life Network and features fishing, hunting, history and customs from around the state. Csonka said the matter could have been handled administratively but that the Forest Service seemed bent on prosecuting.


    1) What is the government hiding that they do not want filmed??

    2) What harm does filming do to the environment? Why restitution?

    3) Are not federal lands for benefit of its citizens?

    I would like to hear from those more aware of why the Feds would do this.

    Why would the gov make a big deal about it when Csonka said it could have been handled administratively? If you were hiding something wouldn't you handle it quietly? I don't understand your premise. Sorry!

    Sounds like Csonka didn't want to pay the $8887. By handling it "administratively" probably meant smoothing the government over to get out of it. Maybe a couple of signed helmets would've sufficed in Csonka's head. It's a permit. Permits are needed for everything nowadays. Nothing out of the ordinary.

    Once again..you're WRONG..as usual...

    But like many in this country...you think that a rational look at any problem or critical analysis of it to come to a solution for the common good is being "unpatriotic" or "ranting"....

    (Sort of how you act towards any Packer forum poster here who disagrees with you...)


    (As illustrated in this quote from the movie..Falling Down...)

    Bill Foster: I am just disagreeing with you. In America, we have the freedom of speech. The right to disagree.
    Nick: **** you and your freedom.

    ha, you were SO going to do an 'evil uncle sam' rant, thats why your post had nothing to do with the topic at all, because if you said anything about it, it would have turned into what I said it would. you're too easy.
