This isn't trading your personal property for tattoos. This is a felony. Any chance he is dismissed from team? At the very least how many games is he suspended?

When I saw this I knew it would not turn out well if they are convicted and don't get an easier pass because who they are.... the stealing the weapon and having an unregistered gun will not suit well for them. Alabama is also a state that does not have lenient drug laws so this may end up bad for them.

They were arrested in Louisiana, and Robinson's attorney thinks the DA will reduce or drop the stolen gun charge as it will take a preponderance of evidence to prove he knew about it.

Edit: it's not that simple it now appears.

Short of doing time, Saban said today that the punishment will be handled internally, and that the players would be in better circumstances with him, Bama, watching over them, lol.

yeah, watching over him protecting the blindside of his quarterback. Amazing to me that a kid can get arrested for a felony and still play major college football.

Is my memory clear here - is or is not LRRandy a fan of a school in Columbus?

national championship trophies heal a lot of things. Really though, you trying to compare a felony to trading personal property for tattoos? (Which is not even a crime)  Kinda not the same.

I will never get upset when a guy is capitalizing on THEIR ABILITIES. Getting tattoos for autographs isn't even close to an actual criminal offense. Those guys were called everything in the book when that happened. Who cares? I don't ever want a tattoo but it wasn't like they were out stealing guns. Good for them IMO getting free tattoos. The NCAA is a joke and it is why I watch very little college sports anymore. These are not student athletes in the major sports. Look at the TV contracts and bowl payouts, etc... this is big business in which they see nothing of the cut. These are athlete-students! The NCAA served a great purpose at one point but let us just call it what it is now. That is a free amateur league for the pro franchises.

Certainly you don't think a free education is worth NOTHING?

And they are actually getting a "cost of attendance" stipend now which is $4500 at Arkansas, so it's not like they are getting nothing.

$4,500, for 60+ hour weeks, on top of class.

Say, $50K over four years on education, plus $18K in stipends.

I wish I could make millions upon millions, upon more millions, and pay my employees $68K over four years for 60+ hour weeks.

And I wish when I was in college I could've had it ALL paid for PLUS get some spending money and free tutors without having to take years and years to pay off my student loans.

But hey, life's unfair, nobody's forcing anybody to go to college OR play sports in college. We all know the rules when we apply or sign a LOI.

You're a little shy on your education costs, living at home going to Tech? Also, they don't put 60hrs a week in, it's against the rules.

Formally, it is against the rules. That doesn't mean it doesn't happen, a lot. Video, training room time, etc.

What's four years at UA these days?

Lol, wish I could live at home and go to Tech. The easy life.

Probably closer to $72-75,000, everything thrown in. You can live a little cheaper off campus, or more expensive. As far as the hours, the surveys the player's do, show a round 40-43 hours, with practice, film, tape, weights, training table.

I don't think it was because they played at Bama, I think they'd gotten off as long as they played any where without an A/C field, lol.

Another Bama player arrested today. Possible first rounder Tim Williams arrested for possession of a firearm without a license. He was also in possession of marijuana but was not charged because he said he was holding it for his friend, "Brandon Chicken". I bet he plays against Kentucky and faces no discipline from Saban

Actually, the person driving his car said the marijuana in the console was his, and he was holding it for Mr. Chicken. Williams was charged with carrying a concealed weapon without a permit. Oh, I agree, he won't sit.

He is a key player. He will probably sit against Kentucky, they could win with all second team, but that will probably be it. Saban's player discipline is a joke.

Nick was quick to throw Barnett under the bus for transferring, though.
