Sad to hear About Tom Troubles..

Sad for Tom? Or sad for the 17 yr old student?

well, quite frankly, that depends on exactly what happened, the girls maturity, the girls sexual history, who was the pursuer, etc. Is he a scumbag sex criminal, or just guilty of bad judgement in giving into extreme temptation? Either way, he did wrong, but how wrong remains to be seen, unless of course he is innocent of doing anything, which also remains to be seen.

If he's innocent of doing anything, I will be sorry for Tom. At this point, I can't say I'm "sad to hear about Tom Troubles".
Regardless of the girls sexual history, who was the pursuer or her maturity..it doesn't matter. A person in a position of authority with a minor NEEDS to resist temptation no matter any of those things(if anything actually happened)

Sad to hear that Tom is in Trouble
Sad that alot Former CFL Players Lifes are going badly.
Sad that Some one else has to Suffer for it..

Sounds like a post I would write FYB. :wink:
But I hope he isn't guilty of doing something terribly bad. But no room for this sort of behaviour if true, he should be punished accordingly as one of the worst things is to mess with a kid's life and sanctity.

innocent until proven guilty, Sad for the cfl if he is,Sad we dont have same laws in Canada, Sad for him they arrested him at work.IMHO

This is a bit of a stretch:

He [b]led [/b]the Hamilton Tiger-Cats to the Grey Cup championship in 1986 when he was holder on Paul Osbalidson's six field goals.

Yes it is but Maybe without his holds we may not have one.
We never know ..
Unless you Believe in Alternative Reality
some where

Come on now. How is that a stretch? We all know the leader and most important player on any football team is the holder. They make the kickers look good.

None of us on this website has any details or clear facts regarding this issue. Therefore, we should all refrain from making any comment until some definite story emerges.

That's not true. I saw the 1986 Grey Cup - probably still have it on video, though I think it's Beta - and it was definitely the defence that won that game for us. Not the holder.

LOL Good one EP :rockin:

Ho Hum
next!

I remember the 'Cats kept Tom Porras instead of Ken Hobart. Bad call.

This arrest has nothing to do with the Ti-Cats.

They should never have been mentioned in the press release !!

anybody seen this update

Elvis would be ashamed... too bad, sigh.

I kinda liked the guy too.

FYI -- I saw this posted regarding the Porras case in Arizona:

[url=http://cfl-football.blogspot.com/2008/02/sex-abuse-case-against-former-canadian.html]http://cfl-football.blogspot.com/2008/0 ... adian.html[/url]

Porras's case has been dismissed without prejudice, meaning that the state prosecution can re-file the charges after a decision by the State Court of Appeals that found Porras's two apparent confessions unconstitutional re the method they were obtained has been processed.

An appeal is likely to be filed by the state on the heels of that decision.

A spokesman for the Attorney General's office in Arizona indicated that the sexual abuse charges will be refiled regardless of the outcome of the appeal.

Oski Wee Wee,

Hmmm...there are other articles avaialble on line too. The Spec had a brief mention of it the other day as well.
