Say Hello to being Undrafted.

I'm not only taking him off my draft board, I'm burning the card with his name on it.

Dr. Gonzo 04-26-2013 01:21 PM

I love that he was charged with public intimidation.

It's absurd that you can be arrested for that.

I also thought the arrest sounded stupid as hell. Typical police behavior. He is like an umpire, gets shown up and punishes the guy showing him up because of it. That said Tharold Simon comes off as a arrogant, dumb ************ but I still think the arrest is really stupid.

Welcome to the 7th round. He can be Dennard's probation buddy in NE.

Does he have Ko Simpson moxie????


Ko when getting arrested one night after a game yelled at the police "I'm Ko Simpson...I'm worth Millions!!"

He was playing on a 600k contract that year.

Honeybadgers skipping out on two team meetings is way more impressive.

“20 witnesses” say Simon did nothing wrong

Instead of being drafted Thursday night, LSU cornerback Tharold Simon was arrested.

His agent, Peter Schaffer, says that Simon is innocent.

“I have spent the better part of the morning investigating this matter, including getting statements from over 20 witnesses,” Schaffer told PFT by phone. “The witnesses corroborate that Tharold did nothing wrong, certainly nothing illegal, and he acted with dignity and class throughout the entire ordeal. I am 100 percent certain that no charges will be filed. We are looking into pursuing a lawsuit against the office for violation of Tharold’s civil rights.

“I am appalled by the behavior of the Eunice, Louisiana police department.”

That may or may not be enough to boost Simon’s draft stock. If it’s not, Simon’s potential damages could include the money he would have made if the untimely blemish hadn’t pulled him down the board.

Time will tell. All I know is if he was saying that stuff that is a punk move. Maybe didn't deserve to be arrested, but definitely needs to be humbled. Either that or it was a disgruntled cop who's football dreams didn't go as planned.

We don't really know what happened, for all we know these "witnesses" are the Simon family and their friends. What the hell else do you expect them to say when they see their potential paycheck getting cuffed on draft day? It sounds messed up but we all know a lot of these guys get a chance at some money and before you know it they are having "Tharold Simon Day" in small town, Louisiana. He said he was going to buy the projects. I am not saying throw Simon to the dogs because he is guilty, but tell me that isn't a realistic scenario.
