    TO OR Melo

    I know it's not friday, but I'm wondering what everyone thinks of the pros actions these weekend. On the Dan Patrick show they feel T.O. spitting in the face of D. Hall is a lower act then Melo's sucker punch and run.

    I'm not sure what I think. Both are kind of scum. I guess I would say in the context of both TO is more of a loser, but I could go either way.

    Re: TO OR Melo

    It's my feeling that if you're going to sucker punch somebody and then run away, not only is that low and classless, but it's about the biggest pansy move out there. I was going to use a different "P" word as well. I was starting to come around on Carmelo, but I'm going to enjoy rooting against him for a while now.

    /sarcasm

    I honestly have no idea which act is worse. They're pretty even to me.

    Re: TO OR Melo

    They are both bad.

    What's too bad is that Melo just got done donating $1.5 million for a boys club in Maryland...that's a lot of money to give up even with the money he is making.

    Re: TO OR Melo

    The bigger question is who will recieve the bigger fine? The NBA already levied thiers and alas nothing yet from the NFL. Kudos to Stern and Co. on this so far. Do you think it will do anything to Melo's other contracts? He is on the Jumpman roster and this may be something that Nike does not want to be associated with. Just a random thought.

    Re: TO OR Melo

    I voted TO but mostly because I am a Philly fan and just dislike him that much. That and I would fight someone who spit on me but may just laugh at someone that hits like Melo and runs away.

    If Nike doesn't have a problem with his constant drug troubles, I doubt this will make a difference. Then again, he couldn't pass this one off on his posse, so you never know what the reaction might be.

    Re: TO OR Melo

    I voted TO because 'Melo was defending a teammate and joining an already started fray, where as TO's was just out of the blue after typical trash talking. TO started it, Melo didn't.

    Re: TO OR Melo

    TO is lucky he doesnt have to deal with David Stern.. Melo gets 15 games, TO gets 65k fine.. thats a joke. Stern is getting more and more power crazy.. someone needs to stop him before its too late.. that may be a bit much, but all I'm saying is.. if he starts to run for office of some sort and making comments in passing about which racial groups he believes should be allowed to live... maybe its time for a new commissioner..

    PS- I'm actually ok with the 15 game suspension.. Stern being crazy is more of an unrelated observation.
