Justin Blackmon’s Reaction To Watching Blaine Gabbert In Training

It didn’t take long for the true colours to show or fame to go to his head. Wide Receiver Justin Blackmon, picked fifth overall by the Jacksonville Jaguars in April’s draft, was arrested for aggravated DUI early Sunday morning.

For Blackmon, this is the second time he has been arrested on a DUI complaint. In October of 2010,

Blackmon, who caught 252 passes for 3,564 and yards 40 touchdowns for the Cowboys in three seasons and led the nation with 20 scores in 2010, was thought to be the “safest” pick among the elite receivers in his draft class. Notre Dame’s Michael Floyd, who some believed to be more purely talented, went 13th to the Arizona Cardinals; his draft stock was impacted by a history of alcohol-related arrests.

Jaguars spokesman Dan Edwards says the team is aware of the report and is gathering information.

It’s only days away and all over the internet there’s been numerous videos showing classic moments like Platini’s winner in 84 or Gazza’a solo effort in 1996.

While those videos make for great viewing, nothing so far has come close to being as entertaining as this video; which displays the greatest moments through the years but with Lego figures as the chief protagonists.

The classic scenes were created by 18-year-old Graham Love from Aberdeen.


Commencing countdown, engines on! There’s now only eight days until show-time for Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley, who are scheduled to meet each other in Las Vegas for the WBO Welterweight title.

One thing that has become massively evident to me during the build-up is that this fight has failed to capture the public’s imagination. To fight fans, such as you and me, we are looking forward to the clash immensely. To the general public the pre-fight bite and the perceived lack of another big name like Pac-Man’s are hindering it.

In the lead up to the recent Mayweather/Cotto bout, there was a real sense of anticipation. Although most people knew that fight was only going to end one way, we still wanted to see Mayweather’s skills on show whilst harbouring the hope that Cotto might step up and deliver in the face of adversity.

In the case of Timothy Bradley and as noble as he is, he doesn’t make for good fight build ups and this was reflected in the poor sales for Devon Alexander clash.

Floyd Mayweather Jr might well be the most arrogant man on the planet but he knows how to sell something and he’s a promoter’s dream ticket.

In an attempt to shake this promotion up and to give an insight in the life of ”Desert Storm” Bradley I’ll be doing the usual showcasing of the 24/7’s in the lead up to the fight starting with the first episode entitled ”Road To Redemption”
