Can't laugh at this when it's the 'Riders

One should not — should not — make light of a serious criminal charge, but this phrasing from a story this morning about the Saskatchewan Roughriders' pending free agents is ironic now:
"The only concern pertains to Abou-Mechrek's age."
D'oh! You don't know, and I don't know, what happened. Please spare a thought for the young woman involved. Please spare a thought for the CFL's best fans, since the situation with Eric Tillman will definitely tear at the fabric of Riderville, no matter how it unfolds.

Eric Tillman? Wow. Never in a million years would I have imagined this guy to be in trouble with the law over anything, not even a parking ticket. Innocent until proven guilty and all that but still, what a shocker.
