    For those of you who don't know the story, click on the link or google him. Quicknotes verison: Amazing HS prospect, signed with USC as a Junior and had ton of potential. He was accused/convicted of rape in HS, spent 5 years in prison, before the decision was overturned. The alleged woman who claimed she got raped came clean, after she was secretly recorded that she schemed up the whole thing. Tried out for teams last year, didn't make it but went to the UFL... now has a legit shot at an NFL spot.

    Rooting for this guy.

    Yeah I will be rooting for this guy, also.

    This was an evil girl and I hope karma comes back and destroys her life, like it did for him. This girl wiped out such a good life for him and I really hope he can catch on and get his fare share in the NFL. Odds are against him though.

    Even if Vince went to the UFL and straight broke all the records, he still wouldnt get signed!

    Vince Young should take notes from Tommy Campbell and go be a janitor.

    Oh and I hope Banks makes it, dude deserves a break.

    Vince needs to be charged with rape, worked wonders for Kobe Bryant.

    Amazing, hope he took that girl to court and cleaned her out for taking 5 years of that guys life. Not only the years, but robbed him of a real chance in the NFL plus a college education!

    He did not commit rape and his record was expunged, so a more accurate statement would be, "You guys pull for a guy who was wrongfully accused of rape and had 10 years of his life taken away from him, yet you hope vince fails and dies!"

    So why exactly hasn't that b*tch been thrown in prison for that false accusation?

    Special treatment for women, I assume.

    If Goodell has a heart, he'll take care of this guy. That clown makes $30mil a year now. He can afford to help.
