Does this guy have the best job in the world, or what? Like anytime something in the sports world has anything remotely to do with the legal system he gets all suited up and just waits by his phone for ESPN to call him to come on air. Free money, just for espousing his "expert legal opinion" on seemingly anything and everything.
Nevermind the fact that there's no way he can possibly be an expert on all areas of the law that he's asked to speak about, think about the range of cases this guy has been asked to analyze: Clemens (perjury), Duke Lacrosse (gang rape/general douche baggery), Plaxico Burress (self inflicted gun wound laws?), OJ Simpson (double homicide), Barry Bonds (perjury, tax evasion, and generally being a miserable human being), Kobe Bryant (anal rape and the ensuing bribe that he almost definitely paid), Michael Vick (dog fighting), Ben Roethlisberger (rape again, ok so maybe he's a rape expert), Brett Favre (sexting/cock shots), the Mets/Madoff law suit (ponzi schemes), and he even took time last year to apparently offer up opinions on John Edwards and whatever was going on with his wife...And those are just the major cases that I can think of off the top of my head, I'm sure he's been asked his opinion on the NFL and NBA lockouts as well, Pete Rose, and Marv Albert.
What's my point? I'm a jealous son of a bitch. I mean even if he has a law degree (I'm sure he does, I'm not insinuating that he doesn't...I don't need this over litigious bastard coming after me with a libel suit, hence this explanation), there is just no way it encompasses everything in that last paragraph...this is just a dude getting paid to go on TV, look like he could be the star of a Jim Sokolove commercial, and espouse his opinion however he sees fit. It's my dream job. Who wouldn't want it...Do a little research, go on tv, and talk out your ass. It's fantastic. I'm imminently jealous of you, Roger.
