    How are you accidently shot at the nightclub? Makes no sense to me. These dumb atheletes just won't learn. The club is not the place for you or for anyone that wants to stay out of trouble for that matter.

    For the kind of money they have they should have their own Nite club.
    Ladies only.
    Or did a lady shoot him?

    Just glad it wasn't AI that was out there at a Detroit nite club Wednesday night and missed practice because he was accidentally shot in the leg.....this would have had 500 posts in less than 30 minutes...:nod:

    Just not sure who would been blamed?? AI for being out at the club or the shooter??

    One of ESPN's NFL people says that Burress somehow shot himself accidentally...WTF?

    "Is that a gun in your pocket, or are you just happy to...wait a minute, that IS a gun in your pocket!!"

    I kinda figured he shot himself when I first heard about the 'accident'.

    Safety first...THEN the trigger... :loser:

    Why was the goof ball even playing with the gun? I was always taught don't pull out a gun unless you are prepared to use it. Well maybe he did intend to use it, but his leg got in the way first. :frusty:

    AI was seen with some turkey legs on Thanksgiving. He was shouting out against PRACTICE on a holiday

    The idiot could face jail time.

    Burress could face jail time for unlicesnsed
    According to various reports, Burress' gun was licensed in Florida, not New York. The Empire State has the toughest penalties in the country for carrying an illegal loaded handgun. Newsday reports that Burress spoke with police Saturday evening. It's obviously very early in the legal process, but this is a story could haunt Plaxico for a while. November 29 - 6:22 p.m. ET

    Unbelievable.

    I don't understand how players with so much to lose can keep putting themselves in these situations.

    Pretty much. Burress has always been an underachiever.

    You gotta look at the positive here. Someone else will get to play, maybe someone who will appreciate their opportunity.

    I couldn't agree more. It is about time teams stop making excuses for these guy's that don't seem to appreciate their opportunities or their profession. Teams need to start putting these guy's on the street and other GM's need to not sign them so that they get the picture. It is a privilage not a right to play professional ball.

    Their goes the chances for a superbowl win. Plaxico was huge that game.

    But I hope that now former Michigan, MARIO MANNINGHAM will get some PT.

    Yeah I liked the guy.

    Re: Burress shot at nightclub.

    Supposedly, the gun fell down his pant leg and when he was trying to get it out, it fired. So, very lucky that he shot himself in the leg as opposed to other places. This story could have been very ugly.

    Re: Burress shot at nightclub.

    The conversation at the club just before the gun went off:

    Hottie: "Is that a gun in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?"

    Plax: "Well, as a matter of fact...it is a gun. Excuse me while I whip this out."

    As long as I've known this dude, you always got the feeling that he was kinda slow, he just keeps confirming over and over again how dumb he is.

    He sounds more self -defeatist. Can't handle good times.
