    The football player will pay convicted or not, guilty or not.
    Stupid, to suggest there may be another side of the story?

    This is definitely bad for NU as it will now be a subject of draft-day discussion. It's worse for Dennard, though.

    If the officer wasn't hurt, then Dennard wasn't trying to hurt the officer. A bonehead move, but not the worst thing an athlete has ever done. It will cost him but shouldn't be a career-ender.

    Certainly not the worst move ever ... but it's bad... really bad. And maybe if he'd just shoved the officer you could more clearly suggest he wasn't trying to hurt him -- but if it's true that he punched him in the face, that has a more serious angle. I'm sure it's not a career-ender also.... but he very likely did cost himself hundreds of thousands -- if not millions -- with his poor choice.

    Yep, his draft position is probably plummeting.

    Just because someone is not hurt after an assault does not mean there was no intent to injure the person. I deal with assaults all of the time in my job. Thankfully, most of the people have no injuries, or very minor ones. That doesn't mean that the perpetrator was trying to hold back.

    I am definitely not saying that he is necessarily completely in the wrong but considering his life stage, I would think you keep yourself out of situations that might hurt your career and you certainly don't escalate things even if you didn't start them.

    This is just terrible, I understand that Fonzo is an aggressive guy, but you have to turn that crap off when you're not on the field. I find a player punching another player, to be far more understandable then this kind of behavior. In the case of an on the field situation, you're adrenalin is already up there, you're having to channel extreme aggression and then shut if off before you get to the line, that's not an easy thing to do. Shutting that part of you off during an evening out is an easy thing to do to the point that most war vets who kill people find a way to make it happen.

    I also think that on the basis of many of his interviews, the suggestion that Alfonzo is not that smart a guy might also have some weight.

    Lincoln has a police department that is less than tolerant of downtown bars. So what do you you think the attitude in the police department is? Been to many games and Lincoln over the years and having watched the police in action with 40 some thing adults there are some bad apples who were not trained to work with people.
    Denard is a high profile individual he may be wrong.
    Denard may have been provoked too?
    What do you think recruits think? Maybe the police department can play football and pay the bills at the University.
    Just an opinion.
    You're reaching.

    If the basics of the report can be believed they were going to send him on his way 2 times. Seems they were being pretty reasonable.

    Why does the local media hate nebraska football? Identifying him as a Husker was COMPLETELY un-necessary! I mean his eligibility is exhausted!

    Not even close. He wasn't going to sign for "millions" in the first place. He'll probably drop some but he'll still get drafted.

    I was pretty surprised to see him throw punches in the game. Now I am less so, but, pretty dissapointing nonetheless.

    If he went in the first round, it would be millions. I believe he was looking at no worse than late first round (but even if it was second and he dropped to third, it's huge).

    I just did a quick google.... in 2009 (probably more recent can be found, which would only add to it), the last pick in the first round received an $11.3 million contract ($6.1 million guaranteed, signing bonus). Only 5 picks later in the second round, $4.93 million ($2.15 million). Huge difference between the first and second round. Drop down to the beginning of the third round, and it's less than half that of the 5th pick of the second round. You don't have to fall far to cost yourself a ton of money.

    I feel bad for him. I know he made a bad decision (provoked or not), but let the person here that hasn't made mistakes step forward. I still appreciate all you have done for NU. Take care of this and then go kick butt the rest of your life.

    Not a smart move. I cannot understand why some of these kids work so hard to try and make the NFL then throw it away.
