    When I become a millionaire, my goal is to make friends with murderers and hang around worthless human beings. Sounds like the way to go.

    Well, the issue here is that he DIDN'T waste money on unless scumbags.

    dumping your friends from childhood is not as easy some of you make it out to be. Granted many are "thugs" or engage in criminal behavior, but they are the people that have been there for him whe he wasn't chit. Now that he has "made it", it isn't like he forgets what they did for him when he was younger. There is a certain comfort/trust that is derived from socializing with people from similar backgrounds or shared experiences.

    Good Will Hunting was a movie that explored this theme (Matt Damon, Ben Afleck et al.) about 15 years ago. I imagine the psychology is nearly the same for gifted athletes as it is for geniuses.

    Britt was wise not to pay the bond. There is no way to "spin" covering a bond for felony friend. Furthermore, Britt probably found out this "friend" was indeed guilty. The bondsmen were fools to accept a verbal agreement.

    My beef still remains with Goodell's Conduct policy and its arbitrary enforcement. Goodell alone can decide what constitutes a violation as well as what is appropriate punishment. That fact coupled with a policy that allows mere allegation to be considered an infraction is a disgrace to traditional American justice.

    We'll just have to see how much attention Goodell decides to pay to Britt for his repeated appearance in the headlines.

    In my opinion they should yank his "friend" and put his butt in jail if they haven't already. If bail isn't paid...why would the dude still be roaming...

    Worked out well for Pac.

    Though I understand your argument...to me it simply points out the root of the problem and is making excuses...but I have not lived it so cannot empathize, nor will I try.

    Britt has the money...no clue behind why he has not paid it yet.

    I know it's not easy by any stretch of the imagination. Over the years I've had to leave a few very good childhood friends behind because of their behavior and refusal to grow up. And I don't have nearly as much to lose as a guy like Kenny freaking Britt. At a certain point hanging out with negative influences just isn't worth it anymore. Despite how far back your relationship may go.
