It's not, at least here in Indiana it's not. Ex Pacers player Jamaal Tinsley punched a bar owner at 8 Seconds Saloon back in 2007 knocking him to the ground and damaging his face. Marion County here in Indianapolis were the one's that press charges after reviewing the evidence and a Grand Jury indicted Tinsley for Intimidation and Battery. After he punched the bar owner the night of the incident he was able to leave that night without being arrested, then 2 weeks later he was indicted.
My thought exactly. I cannot understand why so many of my fellow Vikings fans were defending the Padres fan. The Rockies fan who was punched chose not to press charges. I feel that the Padres fan should have been arrested. That was awful.
Likely 2-5M pushed.
There are three risks. 2 this season, one next.
1) his return is delayed and we work ourselves out of the playoffs early with a tough stretch the first 5 games
2) he's just not the same regardless of when he comes back.
3) #2 plus we're in the same place next year, and either need to spend big in FA while already spending #1 on OL, or gambling on a 2nd round LT. Doubt the class next year will be better than this year.
Hopefully he's great when he comes back, we don't tank early, and he signs for a few extra years and doesn't want a king's ransom.... a boy can dream.
