Hell no, he'll probably earn a merit badge from his team. The award of Assholus Maximus. It is the NFL after all.

Without the facts I will defend him. We’ve all been there, we’ve all been there.

Well this doesn’t suprise me one bit. The quality of the atheletes is really low whenit comes to social reality.

This is what happens when an under privileged black kid from the hood and give him a boatload of money. So many guys from professional basketball and football teams get into trouble and expect their name or their money will get them out of trouble. You don’t see hockey players getting into trouble like them.

I remember flying when it was fun. Now never again — unless I win the lotto and get some kind of VIP deal.

He’ll slide scott free. No harm, no foul. Preferential treatment? Probably.

I have to say that I can understand how one could become belligerent with the TSA. They have greatly irritated me in the past.

I remember flying when there was no checks. If you were carrying a gun and it fell out of your coat, the very attractive stewardess would probably pick it up and hand it back to you with a smile.

Yes. I would not do what he did. I can sympathize with being frustrated by the TSA cretins.

If he was dumb enough to say Bomb! as some kind of joke, Aldon deserves every book that gets thrown at him.

From a logical perspective, they would rather just have somebody walk up to the screening area and blow themselves up unannounced?

Imbeciles on duty were probably doing the cretin hop in glee.

And the fodder the TSA recruits from is just how much better?

Flown out of LAX lately? TSA obviously recruits from south-central LA exclusively.

Brilliant!!! Yeah, that was a smart move, there.

Well, if he actually said that, there will be one less.

I’ve been through the TSA thing a few times but it’s been years, yeah, since I flew. I just kinda laughed it off the short inconvenience.

But I gotta say, unless it’s recorded, it’s hard to trust many folks these days to be truthful.

Guess he didn't get the "Lick the feet of your Fedcoat massas like your slave forebears" memo...

Agreed. I would believe him before any of the TSA agents.

Anybody not in the TSA hear him say it? If not, I'll consider it a fabrication.

I agree, but these ‘so-called’ role models are supposed to be above that gangsta crap. Yes I have flown out of the arm pit of TSA Philly and other welfare run TSA airports.

Ok, I stand corrected. But one hockey player compared to how football and basketball players.
