Lattimore done gone and got himself arrested!


Recommended Posts

Galette had two different incidents where he was filmed fighting women.
 

I don’t think it’s fair to mention them in the same breath just yet.

Not saying their the same but making dumb decisions like this has got to be a red flag. Their were minor red flags like this with Galette early on but the Saints opted to ignore them and they paid for it. Can't make those mistakes again. Might not be popular because Lattimore is a good player and should be a core member of the team moving forward but the Saints need to decide whether of not this is an isolated incident or something that could develop into a pattern. Obviously Lattimore is still close with his boys, the details of the situation appear odd. I question why he'd even put himself in that position in the first place which forces me to question his intelligence and priorities. It'd be different if he was a lesser player but the fact thats he's a talented player entering the final year of his deal with trade value causes you to determine if he's better of and more valuable to the team via trade than he is on the field or in the lockerroom moving forward. In any case its a conversation that has to be had within the Saints upper management.

Lattimore is a high risk signing. Fantastic talent...and he has shown the ability to play. The problem is has been incredibly inconsistent, and hasn't been as good as his rookie season. I have the fear that he gets signed...and loses motivation. He has already showed concerns with his motivation level as it is. This doesn't help his cause at all.

I think Lattimore will be on a year to year deal for the next couple seasons... Loomis will make him prove himself on and off the field.

Trade him to Cleveland <removed>

I just don't have patience for someone who has so much going for him, only to do something so selfish and stupid.

The NFL is a 365 day job for the duration of your career, and you're financially rewarded accordingly. This is just moronic!

Next!

It was a stupid decision, but this isn't a huge deal. This is his first screw up and very well could've been a misunderstanding on his part. We don't know all of the details. To immediately jump to trading him is a bit of an overreaction. 

That being said, he certainly cost himself some money. He lost some leverage with this incident and his guaranteed money in his next contract will reflect that.

This is more of a reason to trade him than this incident.

To be fair, there’s an equal amount of evidence to say he was simply headed to a BBQ.

Also did it get reported yet whether he had the gun on him or whether it was someone in the car and they were all charged?

It hasn’t been reported where the gun was found other than with the guys in the truck. I’m assuming it was on Lattimore or under his seat to get linked to him specifically. Neither of which is damning regardless.

With a loaded, stolen gun?
If it was on his person, gone. If it was on someone else and this is a headline digging "guilt by association" type issue, then I'd be way more forgiving.

You’re making the assumption that because they have a gun, that the gun was related to, or needed for whatever they were doing. There’s zero evidence of that.

Even though it’s likely a misdemeanor at worse?

And what if it was on him because and he was borrowing it for protection and, even if he purchased it, the guy he got it from told him it was his gun?

Seems like he had the gun on him, because everyone else in the car was charged for having their own weapons.  Two because of some disability(which I didn't even know that law existed...maybe certain disabilities I could see, but seems strange at first glance), and the driver was improperly handling his own firearm or something, I assume maybe had it loaded and in a dangerous spot.  

Bottom line, seems like they were all being idiots, and it does sound like Marshon did have the stolen gun in his possession.

Combine this with the fact they didn't even have working tailights, and I mean at best, you got a car load of idiots.

Edit: Ah, I see what they mean.  Possessing weapon under disability is referring to being a convicted felon, drug rehab, or mental patient, etc.  Sounds like excellent company.

Dome, I honestly have no idea what you mean here, or what you're trying to say.

There was a loaded, stolen gun. End of sentence.

I'm not trying to go to battle with you, I'm just stating that if you're trying to jockey for a mega contract, and your game has been wishy washy, maybe you shouldn't be dicking around with your old buddies with guns and who knows what else. I'd like to think that at age 24 and 4 years in a professional setting, maybe a guy has learned something. Maybe a guy has heard about how to straighten his crap out, or has learned a little about what's frowned upon these days.

That's all. I just wish some of these dudes would use their heads a bit more. But maybe I don't understand 24 year old pro athlete testosterone.

If that really was the end of your sentence that would be fine and I wouldn't have said much to it, but that wasn't all you had to say.

<removed> If you had said "there was a loaded, stolen gun" and that was truly the end of your sentence I wouldn't have argued. But you took it a step further, that wasn't actually the "end of sentence" statement you originally made so I just wondered what inside info you had.

"Battle" ?? - We're just talking, that's what this forum is for.

Now you're saying all this, yeah it all makes sense. But you weren't saying that before. <removed> That was reactionary and unfounded, that's all my problem was with what you were saying. It appears to have been remedied.
