Revis is in big trouble

33 posts in this topic

If the story holds true from Revis' perspective, the two guys deserved what happened. People will eventually learn to quit running up on these guys and being obnoxious. Regardless of their status, there is a respectful way to approach them, and what those guys did was far from it. I've known and been around high profile athletes, race drivers, etc.. and it's unbelievable some of the % people pull.

He can join Aaron Hernandez in prison and the two can reminisce about the Patriot Way.

Assuming Revis' account is true, they had no right to harass him and deserved it. Also, those charges are complete overstretches, and any decent lawyer will get him off (sorry about the phrasing...). "Robbery" for grabbing a guy's phone? Please. Conspiracy? What? Terroristic threats? Good luck getting that one to stick unless he yelled about plans to bomb Heinz field as he was beating them down.

I can imagine the stupidity of some people. It's one thing if you're a kid or a lady, another if you're an adult male. I basically camped out for hours in the Conrad Hotel in Indy during reunion weekend. You just gotta be respectful and read the room, I felt I could get a pic w Dallas when he was alone in the lobby and he was nice enough to oblige. Joe Addai went right up to me and saw my Colts sweater and shook my hand and seemed excited to see ME and we spoke for a few minutes. Other guys like Jeff, Stokley, Polian I just said a quick hello and congrats to. I mean, I'd probably geek out if it was Peyton but I wouldn't be anything but polite.

I agree those charges seem extreme if revis' account is somewhat accurate. I figure it should be a misdemeanor if no ones face was broken. Getting knocked out seems fair for essentially stalking someone.

isn't really a major ordeal IMO. It was just a regular ole fight from what I understand.

What happened in the last 10 years that made regular, everyday fist fights such a big deal? Most men wouldn't press charges on another man first of all. I don't know. This just sounds dumb IMO.

Also when has anyone thought breaking out their Cell phone and recording someone in their face was right? Imagine being out with a girlfriend and eating dinner and someone breaks out a Cell phone out of the blue because you are an athlete and start videoing you for example. People need help doing that kind of thing haha.

Does this incident remind anyone of that movie Big Fan???

That film cracks me up in the way it depicts the outright absurdity of sports fandom...

You did it the right way. Most people don't have that kind of self-restraint and approach these guys like they are entitled. Don't get me wrong, there are athletes who don't want any interaction at all, but most of them, again if they are approached respectfully, are cool. When you start getting loud, pull out your phone, start taking pictures etc.. when that person tells you to stop, I have no sympathy for what happens to them afterwards. Again, these guys probably got what they deserved and will be a little more respectful when approaching these guys.

Exactly, they get paid to play, not paid to amuse us in person. You get a pass when you're a kid and famous folks will be more inclined to reciprocate but adults need to know better. I was in high school and even then was afraid to go up to John Madden during halftime of the last MNF game on NBC (heard from the lady working he was a jerk), but my brother and cousin who were both younger went right up and each got his autograph on a Jets football that they gave out that night. Nowadays because of phones it's easier to get a quick pic anyway (I'd rather have the pic than the autograph) which, as an adult male, I've done plenty of times (after asking of course). If you read the situation it's a get in/get out move to the delight of both parties, they also aren't giving you anything you can make a profit off of like an autograph so might be more inclined anyway.

I often wonder why wealthy guys like Revis don't always travel with paid security personnel to prevent legal snafus like this one.

 

I'm not mandating everybody famous do this because some guys don't make a king's ransom, but if you can swing it financially; it more than pays for itself in the long run.

Bro check this out. I watched about 30 plus cops, all decked out looking like a swat team carrying AR's arrest my neighbor and they're trying to hem him up, and send him to prison over nothing, all the neighbors went out after the cops got there and so on, but I live closer to his house than most of those people, so I was right there where all the action was, standing in the driveway just listening, talking to a few local cops I know, etc. But I listened to the police talk about if they could overcharge him and make sure he goes to prison, (Charge him federally to make sure he wont get out)  I live in a sub division, nobody up here liked this guy other than me. I would talk to him when I'd see him outside, let him use my mower in the summer time, etc, and ended up really liking the guy. He was a really cool guy you know. He loved sports, so we talked sports, and etc. But I tend to get along with the majority, but as I said he was a real good guy, he just loved guns and had like an arsenal of weapons he showed me. AR's, AK's. FN's. bullet proof vest, LOL I mean everything bro. All he done was shoot a gun off behind his house a few times, there WAS a target set up, and nobody seen where he was shooting toward. Other neighbors shoot up here all the time, its no big deal, and we're outside city limits may I add. Then a few minutes after he started shooting BOOM. I looked out and dude. It was a crazy scene. They were wanting to charge him with attempted murder man. So I know how things can go. I look at both sides. Charged the guy with 8 or 9 felonies and his life is screwed over nothing. 30 something years old with a wife and 12 year old son sitting over there while he sits in jail because the cops overcharged him, when he shouldn't have been charged at all. they all agreed they couldn't charge him with attempted murder so they just stacked on a pile of felonies. This has been months ago. So I look at both sides man.

Yeah I would at least bring a friend with me if I was going out in public or to a bar. Someone of large size LOL so someone would think twice of messing with me. Also you would have a witness as well if something goes down.

Crazy stuff really. Man that had to be a wild scene, I feel bad for that guy considering he has a family.

I expect the charges to be dropped. Revis has no criminal record. These charges appear overblown. Terroristic acts? That's absurd. 

 

What is sad is that even if charges are dropped, these guys will probably file a civil suit which will be settled out of court. So, they still cash in.

Yeah I wonder if law enforcement in that city have something on record he may have said to charge him with a Terrorist threat? Seems odd to me charging him with that if they don't. That is a pretty serious charge.

Yeah it sucks for the dude. It's sad seeing his wife and son now. And yeah man. I haven't ever seen anything like that before in my life. I mean they had the entire road coming up into my sub division blocked off. But my point is you always gotta look at both sides of a situation you know. It basically came down to a bunch of important people didn't like the dude living up here, and they thought he was dangerous because everyone knew he had so many guns and all that, and he told me he had been in some trouble a few times here when he was younger. But like I said. I kinda got to know him over the years and he was a good guy. Never seemed like he was dangerous to me.

I think he most likely said something that was on the phone video that lead them make that charge. I mean he cant have been dumb enough to say something to the cops faces, right??

Depending on the laws in your state, if he had previous legal trouble, especially if he had any prior felonies, he was not supposed to be in possession of certain if not all firearms, especially not an arsenal. Was he part of any constitutional groups or militias? Those guys get watched more then they know. Feel bad for his family, especially if it could all have been avoided.

The following Sports Illustrated article breaks down the charges against Revis and gives an idea of what the defense strategy probably will be. 

 

https://www.google.com/amp/amp.timeinc.net/si/nfl/2017/02/16/darrelle-revis-assault-charges-jets-nfl-future%3Fsource%3Ddam

 

I wondered why Revis was charged with "terroristic threats". The article says:

 

"A terroristic threat is not synonymous with a 'terrorist' threat. A terroristic threat is instead a threat to harm another person with the goal of terrorizing that individual. While the charges have not yet been explained by law enforcement, Revis is presumably accused of threatening the two men with the hopes of terrorizing them."

    • That would be good!     Quite honestly I do not know a thing about him, I was really just throwing out some dry humor... I am a big John Wayne fan though, lol.     God knows we need help in the secondary so any sleepers that awaken this year is a good thing.  It would be a pleasant surprise to actually have a competent defensive backfield.... something Colts fans have rarely seen.
    • I think he is too good of a runner to not utilize him at FB. Here and there putting him there like we did with Turbin wouldnt be bad but i think it's be a waste of his talent him being a full time FB.
    • Moncrief will be fine, it's Dorsett whose days are numbered.
      The signing and the production of Aiken will bring down Moncrief's asking price.
      I expect Moncrief to step it up this year. Dorsett on the other hand could be getting cut unless he proves he can catch the ball.
       
    • Heck, lets really bite the bullet and sign not only Hankins and Brown, but Revis as well to play alongside Davis.  Our defense would be stout with these 3 additions and they won't break the bank and we won't have to rely on nailing every draft pick. Revis would be the only one that might be getting overpaid, but that would only be on a 1-2 year deal.
        I don't see anyone projecting McCaffrey going to the Colts, yet I hear some experts putting McCaffrey above Fournette. He is from Stanford so you know the kid is smart and we have a good track record with Stanford players. He excels at everything, plus who was the last good white boy running back n the NFL? Peyton Hillis? Madden curse got him and he wasn't even half as versatile as McCaffrey who can not only receive like a receiver(top 5 WR as well as top 3 RB) but he can also return the ball. We have like 3 or 4 guys that take turns as the returner, McCaffrey allows us to pretty much cut all those guys.

      We need to sign a couple more guys so we can pick the best player on the board come our turn in the draft. As it stands, we still have too many holes to do that. McCaffrey could step in immediately and provide 50 yards of offense running and catching the ball. 8-10 carries for Gore and Turbin both and just 4-6 for McCaffrey while giving him another 4-6 targets in the passing game. And when Gore retires after this season, or next, then McCaffrey still compliments Turbin perfectly.

      If we signed these 3 players, and took McCaffrey with the first pick, then we could get another edge rusher in the 2nd and a CB in the 3rd to replace Revis in his 2nd or 3rd year.
    • That is why it is good to put your eggs in other baskets too, like March Madness, and even a bit of Netflix.   I never caught up to Breaking Bad, so I am catching up now.
