Popular NFL Running Back Defends bin Laden: ‘We’ve Only Heard One Side’

...I think it’s safe to say he’ll be quite UN”popular” in the coming hours. Idiot.

Where was Mendenhall hiding his head while the Bin Ladin videos kept popping up?

Hear the "other side?" A product of our public school system?

Rashad, stick to carrying pig skin across a white line. You just proved you have no intellectual capacity to do anything more mentally challenging.

No, Rashard, we heard the other side first. On September 11, 2001.

Hey, how many brain cells do you have that actually fire? Two at most?

This should go over well with the season pass folks.

One day the NFL will wise up - these guys just aren't cute anymore.

athletes say and believe stupid things all the time... like this...

or when D. Wade compared the Heat losing a game to the towers coming down...

or when adrian peterson said that the nfl is ‘modern day slavery’ in regards to the ‘strike’...

this is what happens when you sacrifice personal development for fame.

or when you’re a idiot.

At least he's highlighted the contradictions in Obama’s (and, by extension, most leftists) policies.

On the one hand, military tribunals aren't good enough to protect the civil rights of terrorists in Gitmo. OTOH, summary executions in the field are just fine.

And, if I was to take bets Mr. Rashard, I would say we will not be hearing his side anymore. Once was enough.

Good thing I hate the Steelers! They're already Team Obama and now they've got a terrorist sympathizer on their team.

On another note, I'm seeing a bunch of people re-post a quote on Facebook from MLK about loving your enemy. It's really sad how some people think.

If he didn’t earn a degree from Illinois, he almost did. I marvel at the intelligence of some of these athletes who “earned” degrees at some brainy universities.

It’s obvious that hit Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews put on Rashard Mendenhall in the 4th Quarter of Super Bowl XLV caused that man some long term brain damage, not to mention the fumble which ruined the Steelers’ pathetic comeback attempt.

"This should go over well with the season pass folks."

-Not in the least. Steeler Nation only cares about winning. mendenhall is good for 100+ yards a game.

"One day the NFL will wise up - these guys just aren't cute anymore."

-Unfortunately the Rooneys are some of the biggest Obamamaniacs on Earth.

How bought the other side of the 3000 that were killed on 9/11? What a complete moron this guy is. He needs to just stick with football. It’s apparent he has no brains for anything else.

I wouldn’t classify the University of Illinois as a ‘brainy’ university. I’ve worked with engineering graduates from there - they’re nothing to write home about - so to speak.

The vast majority of athletes don’t ‘earn’ their degrees in the classroom, they ‘win them’ on the playing field.

i’m sympathetic to his first statement. I have always found it hard to “celebrate” a death, even the death of a person who certainly deserved death.

I was satisfied when Saddam was hung, but it didn’t fill me with joy. I was happy that Obama was dead, but I didn’t feel like celebrating the fact.

I also don’t get pleasure when we put people to death. I’m not against the death penalty, and think it is a necessary and right punishment for people who kill others without remorse or concern; but it doesn’t mean I have to like the taking of life.

Anyway, he lost me on his second sentence, so I don’t think his concern was the same as mine.
