WTOP radio is saying that the Skins will have a #21 patch to honor Taylor and at least for this week, league-wide helmets will have a #21 sticker on it.

Even if Portis DOESN'T wear #21, he's still paying tribute anyway since he normally wears #26, which was Taylor's number at Miami.

    Uh... for what, exactly? Don't go downstairs if you hear a noise at night?


What I meant Guru was that the way you live your life, you can also die by it as well. Even as a athlete does not mean you are industructable. Now not all the facts are out but he(Taylor) did have a troubled past and it would be a shame if Taylor's past came back to haunt him. Other than spitting on other players, Taylor seemed to be cleaning up his act and helping schools/children.

When will other players like Pac-Man, Tank understand?

I think it's unfair to throw Tank in this conversation. Since his suspension/jail sentence, he's kept himself out of trouble. His only incident involved a wrongful DUI arrest, when it turned out he WAS under the legal alcohol limit and was released by the Bears for it anyway.

As far as I know, he's been on his best behavior since joining the Cowboys and I think he's turned his life around.

His parting comment of "any black man or boy reading this could be next" is, in my opinion, hideously misinformed, and appears ignorant to the fact that there is a huge number of black men (including many in the NFL) who can go through life never associating with, or being endangered by, the 'Black KKK' types he refers to, and (probably rightly) assumes Taylor was a victim of.

That said, couldn't agree more with his comments on the moronic "keepin it real" mentality which dictates you shouldn't even attempt to leave behind an unsafe neighborhood or lifestyle if the opportunity presents itself. You'd have to be an idiot not to try to get out if you got the chance, and a damned irresponsible idiot if you had a young family.

Tragically, Taylor appears to be a prime example of why that crap means your damned if you do and damned if you don't. Stay, and you're inherently in danger, leave and there'll still be people who want to get back at you.

I'd love to think tragedies like this could be a wake-up call that lead to a change in attitudes, but I just don't see it happening.

Interesting ESPN.com piece (sports.espn.go.com) quoting Antrell Rolle ...

"This was not the first incident," Rolle said. "They've been targeting him for three years now."

My question is ... why the eff not move away?
