RF23 - Well, Well, Jay Marriotti...

It was with great surprise and probably glee on my part to hear AOL sports columnist and ESPN "Around the Horn" contributer Jay Marriotti was arrested for domestic violence, here in Southern California.

Why the glee? Because Marriotti is one of many sport writers who feed us in their papers or on television their disgust and glee that an athlete has been arrested for, fill in the blank. And it doesn't matter what athlete, these so called moral arbitors of our society deem every athlete guilty before his or her day in court and they lash out without trying to hear the other side of the story. So this is my glee, a known sportswriter, arrested and placed in jail for putting his hand on a woman and at this point, I don't give a damn what his side of the story is.

Why the glee? Let me give you a bunch of quotes from Marriotti in regard to athletes being arrested for domestic violence.

So now Marriotti, will join Marv Albert and Jim Lampley on a list of fallen columnists and I'm sure the next athlete that commits the crime of abusing his wife or breaking the law...Jay Marriotti is going to be mum...he betta!
