The fact is the law and most of the world look at things differantly than the people blindly defending him just because he is "young" or just bacuse he offers something to the super bowl run. I personally dont think supensions are in order yet, but the fact is these things happened in his house.
It doesnt matter if he invited the guys with guns and knives or not. He is liable for what happens at his parties. Same way i am liable if something bad happened at my daughters b-day party and someone got hurt. It is no differant. Have a party accept the consequences.
I have a feeling some of you dont own your own homes, or have enough experiance to understand that spending money on the entertainment of drunkin idiots is not a good investment, Financially, or for someone in the spotlight, politically. Especially when those drunken idiots cost you more from their actions that result in lawsuits than they do from initial cost of the party.
It time to grow up is all people are saying. Choosing not to do so from here on out would be a bad decision.
Calling him an immature dumbass is attacking his character.
Since we have virtually no information about what happened, we owe him every benefit of the doubt at this point. He is not a suspect in any crime. You don't get a say so in what he does with his personal life and neither does the NFL unless he is breaking the law. He doesn't need yours or anyone else's homeowners stamp of approval either. If he wants to host parties at his home and spend his own money to do so then thats his choice. If he does become a suspect in a crime, or his on the field production falls off a cliff, or someone formally presses charges against Aldon Smith then you obviously have a point but right now the only thing 49ers fans should be concerned with is that he escaped the incident healthy.
The comment about me or others not having a realistic perspective because we don't (your assumption) own homes (incorrect) is completely off base. Its not a matter of whether or not hosting parties or spending money to entertain friends is "smart" by yours or anyone else's definition. The point is he has every right to do whatever he wants within the law whether you approve or not.
