[b]Ex-Eskimos lineman Adam Braidwood sentenced to 4 1/2 years for sex assault

Former Edmonton Eskimos defensive lineman Adam Braidwood was sentenced to 4 1/2 years in prison Friday for an "egregious" sexual assault on a former girlfriend.

Braidwood, 28, pleaded guilty to sexual assault and careless storage of a firearm for a domestic assault on Dec. 2, 2010, which the defence said was the result of the former CFL star and cage fighter's drug addiction.

Braidwood was ordered to submit a DNA sample for the national DNA databank, banned for life from possessing weapons and placed on the national sex offender registry for 20 years.[/b]

As usual, the sports media go on and on about what a shame this is, completely omitting the victim of Braidwood's cowardly and psychopathic abuse, as if the story here is the life of a ruined athlete and not the extensive physical and psychic trauma he inflicted on someone who trusted him. :thdn:

This is an excellent piece on how misogyny (and homophobia) are inherent, systemic parts of sports culture: http://espn.go.com/espn/story/_/id/9183 ... src=mobile

The culture has to change, or nothing will.

Oh comeon… we all know that sports is the last bastion of homophobia. I go to the pride parade every year in Vancouver and eer segment of society is represented from law inforcment to poltics… Even bikers are represented(dykes on bikes) Every major business in Vancouver has a float from Save On to Global, BMO, etc… Everybody but the Canucks, Lions, and Whitecaps that is.

Mr Bungle Why is ths clown still in our country.... He is of no use here unless he is playing football... Otherwise he is just here to use what little celebrity he has to fornicate with our women.... I'm all for sharing women and all, but if he leaves them pregnant, he has no legal ways to support those children.Send him back to yankeeville, I'm sure BP has job for him, cleaning oil spills for 6 bucks an hour
How come you said this about Joffrey Reynolds but no comment about Braidwood doing the same thing?????

...probably because Braidwood is Canadian?...where do you 'ship him back to'?...I seriously wish there was somewhere tho, maybe an icefloe somewhere north of Tuktoyaktuk in January
