    Holy crap that almost happened to me, but my father-in-law had a battery tester on hand.
    And I should know better. My teenage years was working as a mechanic while I was at school.

    The mechanic work became more essential than my schooling, lol.

    My career ended up to do nothing with my education and knowing how to work on a car is an international language that is always useful.

    More frail that a 30 year old pro athlete
    But I’m 62 and for 280k I’d sure let him punch me once

    I know the economy is crap, but that's an insane price to pay for batteries. His car must be brutally expensive to require a battery like that.

    Absurd that the legal process would take so long to reach a conclusion!
    That actually makes a snail's pace look expedient in comparison. :huh:

    That process makes the sloths from Zootopia seem like jetpacks.

    I agree, I would let someone punch me for 200K. I can buy new glasses and more booze with that settlement.

    It means there is none. He’ll have 3 sacks in a preseason game and they’ll cut him.

    Some are. A 55 year old vs a 20 something year old football player can be quite a mismatch. If only Alvin Trotman had a concealed carry permit we could have signed Wagner instead.

    Hell, I could probably take a hit better now at 58 than I could when I was 20... until the next day or two, at which point every part of my body would probably feel some kind of result from it for a week or two. Lol

    It all starts with Gordy. Get him out.

    In the immortal words of Ben Carson at the GOP presidential debates: "Can somebody attack me, please" ... for $280,000?

    In 2018, Fowler served a one-game suspension for the incident, which violated the league’s Personal Conduct Policy.

    Fowler was on the Jaguars’ roster on July 16, 2017, when he punched a 55-year-old man in the parking lot of a St. Petersburg apartment complex. Fowler also stepped on the man’s eyeglasses and threw Alvin Trotman’s grocery bag, which contained liquor, into a nearby lake.

    Fowler pleaded no contest to misdemeanor battery, criminal mischief and petty theft and was sentenced to 75 hours of community service, one-year of probation and fined $925. He issued a public apology a week later when the Jaguars began training camp. wow they were pretty hard on him! :facepalm:

    pretty tough guy! good self restraint, and good character ! :omg:
    welcome to the dallas jonesboys ! will fit right in.
