I Guess Donte Stallworth Will Have To Take A Break From Playing Xbox While On House Arrest To Think About How Much Money He’s Losing

CORRECTION Stallworth Pedestrian Killed Football

The NFL has indefinitely suspended Donte Stallworth without pay after the wide receiver pleaded guilty to DUI Manslaughter earlier this week.

In a letter to Stallworth, NFL commissioner Robert Goodell said Thursday the player’s actions caused “irreparable harm to the victim and his family, your club, your fellow players and the NFL.”

All of the hand-wringing and gnashing of teeth regarding the questionable (and minimal) punishment Stallworth received for his actions aside, this is a above everything a terrible and tragic story that left one man dead and one man’s life, if not completely ruined, changed forever. Who knows if Stallworth will ever be allowed to play in the NFL ever again and maybe, if Stallworth can be believed, might be the furthest thing from his mind anyway.

Just sad.
