Los That Links 8-13-10
Los That Links on a Friday should mean Los That Ladies, and it will. In just a second.
Now you can call me crazy, but I think someone should, and will, give ex-Raider QB/Purple Drank-dranker Jamarcus Russell a second chance. Russell made news recently thanks to this interview where he confessed, among other things, his drug use and mediocre work ethic while with Oakland. This coming after his release from the team, and his arrest for possession of a controlled substance. Los That Sports Blog, other media, and every social network user have been giving him the Red Foxx treatment ever since, indicating they'd like him to sit down, shut up, and pray for the best.
I disagree though. Look at it like this: he's young, he's admitted a problem, and he's indicated that it's a problem he's had for a while and never received help for. The people at the Lightman Group would probably find substantial micro-expressions within his response to the question about the Raider organization offering help to know that it never happened. (I know, the Raiders not able to help a player with a drug addiction, what a shock!)
