OT: David Boston is a bad man.

Submitted by 74polSKA on December 1st, 2011 at 3:29 PM

 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.

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.

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.

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"

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.
