    Re: Offord arrested for DUI!

    Give him a warning and move on ... DUI's happen to a lot of people that are not bad guys or gals ... just had a little more than they should and got stupid ... dont do it again though WOff ... or you are gone!

    Re: Offord arrested for DUI!

    I'll wait til the details come out before passing judgement. The BAC in MN is .08 & people don't realize how few drinks it takes to get reach it.

    People drive over the lealal limit everyday & don't even realize it.

    Just because he got a DUI, doesn't necessarily mean he was shit-faced or falling down drunk or weaving all over the road.

    Re: Offord arrested for DUI!

    I will also hold judgement on this. Untill we know his BAC there is really no way to know if he had 1 beer to many, or 5 to many. .081 is a DUI and so is .250. There is a big difference between the 2.

    In the grand scheme of things a DUI is a rather small offence. For your 1st one you get some community service and mabye a small fine. Cutting him would be going a little overboard untill we know the details.

    Well if Offord is cut and Tank is not then we have a double standard reguarding treatment of our players.
    How is that a double standard if Tank Williams wasn't a member of the Vikings football team? It's not, so stop being a drama queen.

    Lets break this down.

    Offord got a DUI while under contract.
    Tank Williams did not.

    Fallacy is bad mmmmkay....

    I don't care if he had 1 sip of Boone's Farm and drove.. He drank and drove..

    He got busted for it.. And he is gonna pay for it

    No need to drink and drive.. No matter how much it is

    Man, a DUI? That sucks! Thankfully it was only a misdemeanor, but I still hate to see our guys in trouble.

    I don't think anyone could die from what happened on that boat. Drunk drivers kill people.

    Yep. Everybody makes mistakes. Willie hasn't been in trouble before, so everyone who is calling for him to be cut is really overreacting. If ti happens again, then a pattern may be forming, and more serious action will be taken. I expect the punishment from the Vikings to be consistant with the code of conduct they signed.

    BTW, when I saw the title of this thread, I was sure that it was just another one of Prophet's jokes, and it was going to say that John Offord from Portland, Maine got arrested for DUI. But I decided to click on it anyway to be sure... :shock:
