Two words - Tony Edwards


Tony was a very talented, large LB at Texas. He was with some friends on Sixth Street, and left to go wait for them at their car. Enter a racially prejudiced, midget Mexican Austin PD officer. Now Tony was about 6'3"/240 pounds, sitting on the hood of his friends locked car. Policeman cuffs him "for his own protection", proceeds to beat the crap out of him with a baton, them arrests him for "resisting arrest" and "public intoxication". At the station, Tony blew a "0.0" because he didn't drink. He was subsequently transported to Brackenridge Hospital for treatment.


Media slammed the kid. Texas goes into Waco with him, but team is in such disarray that we lose to Baylor. Both sets of fans are yelling crap at him.

NFL backs away.

During the investigation that officer finally admits (some two years later) he hates blacks, he hates Texas football players, and yes, he lied so get to beat up a black player twice his size. He was removed from APD, but Tony Edwards lost his big chance at the NFL.

THAT was before social media.
