Considering his parents moved here to watch him, & his brother was runner up for Man of the Year, I think he was due a risk.


Released on $103K bond, I wouldn't pay more than $1K for one of my kids.  The jail can keep 'em.


Not to blame the victim, but why would you meet up with him, AFTER he threatened to kill you.  WTH?

people do dumb things for love. She probably just thought he was being drunk and dumb.

Unfortunately, it turned into a serious situation. If there is any silver lining in this, at least he didn't live up to the death threat.

From the details emerging this morning, sounds like he should be on suicide watch. After already threatening to kill himself, and now probably coming to the realization that his life is over for all intents and purposes, he should probably be under 24hr watch.

Giving a victim blaming disclaimer and then blaming the victim is still victim blaming. Just don't do it.

His parents and brother are terrific. But he was an asshole, and didn't change it appears.  Some mistakes you can't un-do.. this mistake was a really really big one.


Not going to blame the victim, but immeadiately blaming the victim. Brilliant.

^ if I know an area in east Charlotte isn't the safest place to be walking after dark.... but I do it anyways and I get robbed, I'm not to blame but I'm still an idiot right.

I'm not saying rape and robbery are similar things, I'm more saying that just asking the question why she goes back to him isn't saying she is to blame. She didn't make a smart decision. Much like the next girl that dates him, Greg hardy, etc.

We need to steer clear of this conversation. A young woman was raped. That is inexcusable. End of story.

Article says he was" the" quarterback here. Should say he was "a" quarterback or "the" third string quarterback.

I'm wondering if he were a little used interior lineman not related to a star NFL player, if this would see so much news time.

Lambert (and Judy I suppose) are going to have to answer some questions. They rolled the dice on a clear character issue... Granted Olsen's history is nothing near this abhorrent, but he had track record of stupidity and police record to substantiate it.


The thought process in bringing him aboard is going to get second guessed big time.


I agree.  Also, this incident will more than likely prevent coaches from taking a chance on future prospects that "may have a history".

I agree which I don't necessarily see as a bad thing. Obviously people do deserve second chances, but we were his 3rd chance.

I could be a bad thing. There are lots of guys that do stupid stuff and deserve a second chance. I fear this incident will make us look away more than we would have previously when it comes to future recruits.  For example, will we give guys like Uriah Lemay a second chance going forward?

I don't endorse violence against women, drunk driving, or throwing rocks though windows because your candidate didn't win--but find me a 6'10" center with some baggage that can play and we can talk about it.

Earnest T had a crush on Charlene Darling.  The current protesters live in their parent's basement playing Doom and have never been on a date.

Just illustrates one of the risks of taking on kids with questionable character/legal issues in their past. Not that the past behavior suggested Olsen would necessarily get violent (though people with consistent drug problems are often very unpredictable). Rather that people will instantly question whether he should've been let in and whether the school somehow put students in danger by giving him a scholarship, which they wouldn't do for an alternative "clean" player that didn't have past issues. It makes the fallout from these things instantly worse if/when they happen.

Do we know what his "drug problem" is?  Rules are rules and all, but if he liked to get together with Demario Mayfield and smoke a joint or two that is very different from being a meth addict.  It is still stupid when you know teams drug test players, but smoking pot makes you hungry, not violent.

Olsen's issues seem to stem from alcohol not drugs.

Off topic and a sweeping generalization.
