Own JaMarcus Russell's Foreclosed Oakland Mansion ( NFL )

Former Raiders' QB is losing his home to foreclosure.

JaMarcus Russell's return to greatness isn't going as well as planned... The former No. 1 pick of the Oakland Raiders...

...

Russell returned to his native Alabama after being released by the Raiders in 2009. His attempts to return to the NFL have been slowed down by charges that Russell was illegally sipping "purple drank."

The Raiders signed Russell to a six-year contract worth up to $68 million, with $31.5 million guaranteed. But in true Al Davis fashion, the team is trying to recuperate some of that signing bonus.

From the article: In the Commonwealth of Virginia, Everclear is legal, but not sold by state-controlled liquor stores, which have a policy against selling grain alcohol lacking distinctive color, odor, and flavor.

But Everclear DOES have a distinct flavor: It's called "My God that BURNS!"

And, while its distinct odor: "those tacos I ate last night... ...oh yeah, and hint of pizza", and its unique color: "Ralph Brown", are not usually noticeable until AFTER a certain quantity of the spirits have been consumed, they are certainly NOT lacking.

Purple drank was "invented" by some idiot rapper in the Houston area. It makes me laugh because it sounds like something a minor would mix together before they could legally purchase alcohol. But no, it was an adult who mixed it up.

They refer to it by different names depending on the color of the drink - various things added or types of cough syrup.

So we call all thank a rapper when we have to wait in line to purchase good cough syrup for our children because it has been abused by idiots

I had to look it up. It’s prescription strength cough syrup, containing one or more narcotics—codeine, hydrocodone, etc. Mix it with Sprite and candy, and yum, you be ready fo some hip hop clubbin.

You forgot that a given percentage of league revenue is guaranteed to go to player salaries.

One of the more common and significant side effects of Opiates like that, is constipation.

He'd be hung over AND #$%#$%$# uncomfortable. Might explain some of his playing.

Purple drank is a slang term for a recreational drug popular in the hip hop community in the southern United States, originating in Houston, Texas. Its main ingredient is prescription-strength cough syrup containing codeine and promethazine.

Cough syrup is typically mixed with ingredients such as Sprite soft drink or Mountain Dew and pieces of Jolly Rancher candy. The purplish hue of purple drank comes from dyes in the cough syrup.

The most popular type of codeine syrup is promethazine-codeine, a prescription cough syrup. The active ingredients are codeine, a narcotic, and the antihistamine medication promethazine. When taken in large quantities, both medications can lead to sedation and altered levels of consciousness.
