  • Jake's road rage case going to trial

    Looks like Jake is going to put his fate in the hands of a jury.

    Maybe it will work for him, but it seems like he should have tried to get this out of the news. Now, it's in the background for the next several weeks.

    I would think Jake doesn't need this type of distraction. I think he's risking quite a bit choosing this course of action...

      Well, he'd better hope you don't get called up for jury duty, huh MntMan?
      Mnt: Hang 'im!
      Judge: Uh, you can't apply the death penalty to this case..
      Mntman: Hang 'im anyway!

        Gonna go out on a ledge here...Maybe he is Innocent?

        Maybe he doesnt want some jackhole to get hush money when he knows he didnt do it?

        Any guess is a good one at this point but I think I'll stick with mine.



        First it was best team not to make the Play Offs. Then it was best team not to win a play off game. This year its best team to go 8-8.

          I doubt it will be much if any kind of distraction. Its annoying and will take up a little of his free time that's about it Mntman.

            Whoopity Do!

            So Jake has to go to court. So what. It's not like he beat someone up, or brandished a firearm at someone, or even smacked around his girlfriend <- All of which have been done recently by NFL players with NO REPERCUSSIONS to the offending player.

            This is silly, the WORST that will happen in a case like this would be a small fine and maybe some community service. It's not like Jake's going to jail or something.

              You obviously know nothing about CRIMINAL trials.

              This isn't a civil case between two people. This is a criminal (a minor one) charge. The plea deal that fell through wouldn't have involved any money, other than possible fines.

              Your use of the word "jackhole" gives a clear indication as to your feelings in the matter. Just get your facts straight.

                  I agree, maybe he is innocent and thinks the right thing to do is to not pay someone money for something he didnt do. I dont know exactly what happened, but there are alot of people that will try and get money out of someone if they know they are a rich celebrity. So, if this is the case, I applaud him for this....

                    You are correct I didnt read the bottom of your post, I was wrong.

                    BUT that doesnt mean he still does not feel he is innocent, so why should he accept a plea deal.

                      If Jake's luck is as good as Steven Alexander's blocking during the AFCCG, you can expect that letter in your mail by tonight.

                        I too wish this wasn't an issue going into the season but if Jake feels he didn't do it then he should go to trial and prove he is not guilty. If he is guilty and is just trying to beat the rap...then I wish he'd pleabargined.

                        Either way, the man has a right to face his accuser in a court of law. The fact that he is an NFL quarterback is an unfortunate distraction but is inconsequential. Jake should not be blamed for taking this matter to court rather than settling. If I didn't cause the wreck I'd probably go to court too.

                        I wasn't there so I don't know who did what. But you have to give the man the benefit of the doubt until proven guilty and respect his wish to have his case heard.

                          What's that saying...?

                          Oh yeah, innocent till proven guilty.

                            OK...

                            I never said he was guilty. I didn't even imply it.

                            What I said was he is taking a chance with a jury trial. A plea deal would have kept this out of the news and allowed him to get on with his life.

                            I think that strategy (considering some of his other well known anger issues) could be a little risky.

                            If he's truly innocent, then I hope this works for him, but lesser celebrities have gone down for less than this.

                            And, it keeps an off-the-field distraction in the news for another month.

                              Half your posts are dogging on Jake, that's enough implying for me.
