    Foley says shooting could end his career

    Chargers | Foley says shooting could end his career
    Fri, 2 Feb 2007 23:40:30 -0800

    The Associated Press reports San Diego Chargers LB Steve Foley (leg, hip) said he thinks his career might be over after getting shot by an off-duty policeman. "I don't want to count anything out or rule myself out, but it's a reality that I won't be able to play again, period," Foley said. Foley was shot in the left leg, hip and hand, which required several surgeries. He said he suffered severe nerve damage in his leg and has lost 50 pounds. Doctors told Foley it could take a year or more for the nerve damage to heal. He can move around on his own, but he has trouble walking and performing other activities. "If I sit down for a short period of time, my leg will stiffen up, my ankle will stiffen up and it makes it even that much more difficult to move around. There's a lot of nerve damage. That's what I'm dealing with, is nerve pain. I'm not able to get around like I normally would be," Foley added.

    Fred Flintstone is a cartoon, a bullet wouldn't hurt him.
    Why do you think he is still hanging out in NFL circles?

    I can't remember what it was why he got shot in the first place.. Can anyone enlighten me? If he screwed up, then he deserves it.. If he didn't do anything wrong, then I feel for the guy..

    Again it comes back to these athletes can afford to have themselves driven when they are going out to party, just think how many of them would have saved themselves jail time and millions of dollars in salaries and endorsements by having a driver.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.
