    Re: McKinnie rejoins Vikings, hopes to avoid punishment

    Speaking publicly for the first time since his arrest, McKinnie declined to discuss his legal situation but said the last three months have been a "learning experience" for him.
    Yep he's learning that he's not outside of the law, though that fact should have dawned on him after the Love Boat incident.. muppet
    I assume that the felony charge would carry jail time if proven, whereas the misdemeanors would be more fines ?
    can someone clarify that - Cajun ?
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    It all depends....and varies from state to state.
    Florida has some pretty arcane laws, so who knows.
    I don't practice criminal law, nor do I practice law in Florida, so I am not an expert on that particular issue.

    Re: McKinnie rejoins Vikings, hopes to avoid punishment

    The bigger question is.......what will Childress do with McKinnie? Chiller set the bar pretty high when he came on board in reference to having players with good moral ethics and wanting them to maintain a standard of professionalism that did not embarass the organization. He wasted no time getting rid of other players for conduct issues so, if McKinnie admits any guilt in this situation, Childress will be faced with
    applying the same standard he has used in the past or be subject to alot of critisism. You cant have one set of rules for practice squad players and a completely different set for your starters. If, and again I am saying if, Big Mac accepts any quilt and Childress does not come down hard on him, than IMHO Childress losses all credibility.

    Re: McKinnie rejoins Vikings, hopes to avoid punishment

    I was looking for this thread...found this one instead: http://www.purplepride.org/forums/index.php?topic=45154.msg782805;topicseen#new

    Same story over on cbsports.
    I was thinking about McKinnie's "pretrial diversion program."
    I imagine they've got all sorts of hoops lined up for him to jump through...classes, therapy ect.
    But, getting a felony dismissed isn't usually that easy...is it?

    Hopfully he has learned from this, and he gets his shit together and comes back to play tougher than ever!


    As for coming down hard on him...we could still see a few game suspension here, and the FO could likely call it, "time spent" punishment enough.
    As a whole, they have dropped some characters, Smoot, Smith, Koren, etc...so, IMHO they've built up a bit more cred than not severly punishing one guy would destroy, but it wouldn't be a precedence I'd like to see started either!
    I think on some levels it comes down to that heart to heart the Childress has with him, and whether the guy is sincerely ready to make the changes needed in his life...if he realizes, just how close he might be to losing that 7 million a year.
    Control the line, control the time, and give your D a chance to shine!!

    Those laws be based on Napoleonic Code...which is much more logical and is used in most of the rest of the world (except for English colonies, Islamic countries and some other countries that use region-specific legal systems developed there).

    So, in reality, it is the rest of the US that has the crazier legal system...trust me on this.
    But it is what we have, so it is how I roll.

    Nobody likes the French, and if you don't like it you can geeeeeetttt out.

    Meh, I don't pretend to know the difference in laws, until I actually get a ticket or something I'm not real informed on the law.

    Not exactly.
    The bigger question concerns the owner and what he wants to do.
    Lets not forget, there were several articles out there just after this happened that stated Wilf wanted him gone (or something along that lines).

    Come on my friend, go back and read those articles word for word. None of them contain any language from Wilf but rather speculation of what the communication between the FO and Wilf will be.

    The first 2 were identical links and were quoting Sid Hartman's speculation of what will happen in which he speculates Wilf will want McKinney gone.

    The second is the actual article that the first one pulled the speculation from and is just speculation

    The third one speculates that,contrary to what Sid speculates, wilf might want to keep Mac and the coaches might want him gone

    All random speculation my friend. No direct words from Wilfies mouth on the subject anywhere in there and we here at PP.O would never,ever take random speculation as fact
    ;D
