Original LT arrested

by Dan Bilicki In: Football

 It’s always sad news to hear about a football great getting sent away for any crime, but there doesn’t seem to be any remorse or shock after hearing about former New York Giant Lawrence Taylor being brought in on third-degree rape charges on Thursday.

In fact, it was almost like some writers almost expected something to happen to him.

He has never been a great role model and has faced personal demons throughout his career. It just now looks like the devil has caught up to him.

No matter what happens in his trial for allegedly raping and beating a 16-year-old runaway, one thing is for sure: LT will never be remembered for his on-field heroics now. Even if he was one of the best and most revolutionary linebackers to ever play the sport.

And hey, how much do you think LaDainian Tomlinson – who plays for the cross-town Jets – wants to change his nickname? I’ve been saying for years, he should have gone with LDT to begin with.
