I have never liked David Boston, even beyond the normal hatred of Ohio players, but this takes the cake. I know he's innocent until proven guilty, but even to be accused of hitting a woman to the point of needing 10 stitches makes me sick. I hope she recovers and gets whatever money he hasn't pissed away.
OT: David Boston is a bad man.
A "night of pizza and alcohol"? I'm thinking that the pizza didn't have much to do with whatever happened.
It was Smirnoff pizza. He also got a side order of Bailey's breadsticks.
Sounds like some kinda crazy cheeseburger liquor party.
So you're saying he was framed?
"Steroids are a hell of a drug". He only used them twice in the NFL and just happened to get caught both times.
I prefer Zima pizza and O'Doul's breadsticks.
But to each his own.
They just wanted everyone to know that he still eats his vegetables
L-O-L planning to live in a hotel after spending 6 weeks on a friend's couch. Sounds like Pryor's plan in 3 year!
....in prison, it should be over a railing on the third floor of the block.
Good Lord, the holding on that play.
That's the image of David Boston that's burned into my brain.
Boston of course went on to get the last laugh which his successful pro career, player awards, and such. It's ashame, because I really thought Woodson was the one who would go on to have a better career.
Ankle socks... Ew. Zero swag.
a bottle of wine? Makes me feel a lot better about my drinking habits.
Besides the bottle of vodka and the bottle of wine, there was a handful of pills. It takes a lot of practice to develop a tolerance like that.
this is horrific. a former-professional athlete taking out his anger on a defenseless woman. scum.
This was the beginning of my hatred. Nobody messes with Woodson.
Anger issues? Roid rage.
Also a sad situation. I had blocked that from my memory.
His girl until she was unconscious.
David Boston is not a man. Real men do not hit women
Man I hated that guy when he played in the giant toilet.
He was staying with her and getting ready to move into a hotel...sounds like he pissed it all away.
"I know he's innocent until proven guilty, but even to be accused of hitting a woman to the point of needing 10 stitches makes me sick."
74polSKA: I accuse you of beating women.
Innocent until proven guilty, kids. This is not and should not be a nation of kangaroo courts; I certainly hope that people who see a Boston or Sandusky walk into the courtroom believe that the defendant is innocent until the prosecution does its job and convinces them otherwise.
If they truly are guilty, that presumption should be easily pushed aside by evidence and testimony. But if we convict people before they walk in the doors you risk punishing innocent men and women for terrible crimes that they have not commtted.
Boston has been accused of a crime. Withhold judgment until the facts are all out and a conviction/acquittal comes forward. If he is guilty, he should be punished to the full extent of the law. Domestic abuse is an ugly thing, and should be punished as such.
But until the facts are in, please don't pass judgment on a defendant. I can assure you if you were innocent and facing criminal charges you would appreciate that sentiment.
I see your point, but I assumed the fact that he has been arrested means that at least part of the story is true and thus the disgust.
"I assumed the arrest meant he was guilty" really eliminates the need for a justice system.
This thread is a pretty grim commentary on our society, IMO.
I'm gonna go ahead and pass judgment prematurely. Boston is a PoS.
This is spoken like a defense attorney at heart. This corporate attorney is going to go ahead and convict Boston in the court of public opinion. He's a piece of sh-t that very likely committed the crime but will probably find some way to weasel out of a conviction. I hereby sentence him to 30 years in maximum negative public image prison.
Fine, I will separate the fact that David Boston is a giant walking piece of shit and has been since his college days from the fact that he currently is technically innocent of that particular crime.
...I presume innocence and I require proof beyond a reasonable doubt.
When I'm out here, I'm free to reach any judgment I choose by any means I find reasonable.
Looks like CWood won on the field and in life. Boston is a loser. Hopefully this girl gets every penny he still has.
Eh,on the badness scale he still can't touch Craig James.
I think the writer of the article unwittingly wrote Boston's epitaph:
"He was known for on-field celebrations, off-field issues and humongous arms"
"Police: Sneaker Theft Suspect Hid Crack Pipes In Buttocks"
Don't blame pizza and booze for David being a s***-head. He learned that at ohio college.
trash talking us back in the day? Running his mouth. Had a strong feeling even then he would always be a loser.
Absolutely guilty, no chance of innocence - unless his jurors are the same NCAA clowns who will absolve Ohio Institute of any violations in the near future. Or the OJ judge.
Why does this story not surprise me at all...pathetic waste of space.
Nice to know that 14 years later, he's still an major jackass.
If we're talking favorite images of him from the 97 game, it has to be this one. The camera slowly zooms in on his face right after Woodson's punt return.
I like that his prison garb is Michigan Blue.
