This probably belongs on the George Floyd thread where certain things are allowed to talk about. Having said that, I never thought Darius was lying. He has nothing to gain from lying in the position he is in.

A witness, yea, they're hard to come by. I refuse to believe that a guy like DL would allow himself and family to be mistreated like that and just walk away. This just smells like another "me too" story. BTW, Bubba is still going on with his "story", it's tough to jump down from your victim perch.

For the record, witnesses always comes out of the woodwork after these high profile race baiting cases. Look at Michael Brown in Ferguson. Witnesses said they SAW him with his hands up and his back facing the cop. Turns out they weren't even in that area, but the media just bought it..

I don't believe a lot of what the media posts/says but Darius Leonard isn't Michael Brown, he is a millionaire and I do believe his story. He has 0 reason to lie.

My point is, even though I really like DL as a Colt, his story just doesn't make sense in many ways. Maybe I'm being skeptical because of the MANY "me too" fraud cases, from the lady who spray painted swastika's on her door then claimed white men did it, or the Jesse Smotett scam to the Bubba Watson noose....plus 100's more!!

There’s always going to be people like that. Just makes it ten times worse for those who are affected. 
 

I agree with 2006, there’s really no reason for him to lie about this.

I'm giving DL the benefit of the doubt, but TMZ, and an anonymous witness does little to move the needle lol. Like I said, we'll likely get either some video surveillance later backing the manager, or an apology from Chipotle and the firing of the manager.

Yeah it will get locked. Might as well get my thoughts in.

 

I like his factual statement about what happened.. I didn’t like his opinionated statement about “knowing what would happen” if the police showed up.

 

The ESPN headline stated “Darius Leonard feared police involvement”... that’s it. That what the headline. literally making it sound this situation actually had something to do with police brutality instead of just racial profiling or a general misunderstanding..

 

As a police officer myself, stuff sucks to see sometimes. People dont like us because of some bad apples and  Media will do anything they can to make a mockery of us.

 

Besides that though Darius Leonard seems like a good person, i don’t know if he would make something up for attention.

I didn't like his statement about police either. Painting with a broad brush doesn't help.

I can't blame him for making the statement about the police.  Especially in the current environment.  He's a black man in South Carolina who was racially profiled and tossed from a restaurant after having conversations about BLM.  Certainly not all police are the same but if I were him I would be more than nervous about seeing police cars pulling up.  He is just echoing the feelings of many black men now.  White men would not feel nervous but black men are fearful.  For obvious reasons.

TMZ actually does decent reporting and has broken some big stories.  Not sure on the resistance in believing this.  He’s a millionaire.  He has zero to gain in concocting a made up story about an experience at Chipotle.

 

The people dogging bubba Wallace, what does this look like to you?

sure looks like a noose so can easily see why any reasonable person would see a problem with this.

Looks like a noose to me. I think that liar Jussie Smollett put doubts in peoples minds to what is real and who is telling the truth regarding black people. The lie he told was outrageous.

Are you suggesting Florence, SC, or the South is just a bunch of rednecks. Again, broad brush. Leonard grew up there. Demographics are about equally split, as is the city council there. I'd guess that the PD is pretty close to 50/50 too.

 

We absolutely need reforms and change. What we don't need is assumptions and emotional instead of factual conversation. We need a willingness to have uncomfortable conversations. If you watch MSM and listen to some folks these days, you'd think 99% of LEOs and PDs are horrible evil people. And the facts just don't bear that out. They actually paint a very different picture. Less emotion and extremes please.

    • Your opinion is wrong though.   Colts had 7th best Run Defense in the league last year.   https://www.footballdb.com/stats/teamstat.html?group=D&cat=T&sort=rushypg
    • The 2021 draft is going to be such a mess with college conferences cancelling seasons. Some are moving seasons to spring then going to expect them to play again in the fall. How many will opt out of the spring session and only play fall. What about guys who red one more year removed from HS to be eligible fir the draft. Will it force guys like Trevor Lawrence to stay in school a extra year. I am not sure how a draft will even be able to ge done in 2021. A lot of players are going to be losing a lot of money if they opt out and enter the draft. 
    • LOL. Did you watch any of the games last season?   Also, Okereke is 6-1, 235 lbs, basically the same size as Patrick Willis and Luke Keuchly, except with longer arms and also runs a 4.58 40. I’d take the increased arm length and athleticism over 0.0001 centimeters in height any day. 
    • I think S depth may trump OL depth right now.  Hooker's battled injuries most of his career and the fact he wasn't extended and given some of Ballard's pressers (basically saying Hooker's play dropped off throughout the year in 2019 and he wasn't playing to his level of expectations) and the fact we drafted Blackmon in Rd 3 lead me to believe the FO/Coaching Staff is getting ready to move on from him.     Willis played well as a rookie, but I still see him as a guy who is just about at his ceiling given his limited athleticism.  Rutledge looks like a playmaker but he went undrafted for a reason and he's a rookie coming from a small school, so it'd be hard to expect him to adjust to the NFL right away, especially given this weird off season.  I like Odum more as a STer than a full-time starting safety should we have an injury to Hooker or Willis. Then Tell, while I don't blame him, opting out, IMO, was a big blow to our entire secondary as he was developing nicely at CB but has the versatility to play S if needed (I don't know any of our current corners have that ability, maybe Rhodes).     OL depth is still concerning, but it sounds like Pinter is really impressing coaches as a rookie and I think Clark is versatile enough to be a solid stop gap at G or T if needed.  Hopefully Patterson is back to full health as a backup C (sounds like Big Q or Pinter would be next in line at C if needed).  I guess, I think we're so strong with our starting OL (with Glowinski being the weak link, but not really that weak of a link) that I feel like a single replacement there would not be as devastating to one of our starting S going down right now.  Regardless, it'd be nice to have a few more guys competing across the OL.
    • It has to be odd signing FAs now, since teams aren't allowed to work them out.  I guess one would hope that these guys have been keeping themselves in shape throughout the offseason, but it'd still be nice to be able to work them out before signing them.   Safety now is, IMO, the team's biggest concern.  I think we're fine w/ Hooker and Willis as starters, though Hooker's had injury issues throughout his time in the NFL (and prior).  I like Odum, but like him more as a STer than a guy we have to rely on being a starter for an extended time if one of our top 2 go down.  Then Blackmon is still on the injured list, and I don't expect him to be full strength to the middle of the season (if not later).  The UDFA, Rutledge, was a playmaker but from a small school and went undrafted for a reason, so I'm not too sure that we should expect anything out of him in terms of being reliable if he had to play a lot of minutes.   Geathers is still a FA and I know Ballard really seemed to like him.  I'm wondering if him not being signed or brought up in discussion is a health issue (i.e., can't pass a physical), a major health concern (given his injury history), demanding too much $, or if the team has simply moved on from him.    Personally, I like the fact we're looking at Tavon Wilson, he's a former 2nd round draft pick who had his best NFL year last season, starting 13 games in Detroit and recording 98 tackles, 2 fumble recovers and 5 passes defended.
