Javon Walker apparent victim of robbery, found unconscious

Recommended Posts

LAS VEGAS -- Oakland Raiders wide receiver Javon Walker was found unconscious on a Las Vegas street Monday after apparently being the victim of a robbery.

Police spokesman Bill Cassell said in a statement that Walker was taken to a hospital with "significant injuries" after being found early Monday on a street off the Las Vegas Strip.

Cassell said Walker remained in fair condition at Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center.

A Raiders spokesman said the team was "in the process of gathering information" and had no further comment.

Walker signed a six-year, $55 million deal with the Raiders after being released by the Denver Broncos in February.

Walker injured his right knee for the second time in his career last season and was limited to eight games and 26 catches in 2007.

Walker was a first-round draft pick by the Green Bay Packers in 2001 and had a breakout season in 2004 with 89 catches for 1,382 yards and 12 touchdowns.

He tore a ligament in his right knee the next season and played only one game.

He was traded to Denver in 2006 and bounced back with 69 catches for 1,084 yards and eight touchdowns.

For those that haven't been to Vegas, just follow this one piece of advice:

Don't venture away from the Strip at night by foot.

Dumbass was reportedly buying bottles of Dom and spraying the nightclub crowd with it. Evidently pissed off the wrong people.

What's even sadder is that this is what he and Brandon Marshall were doing with Darent Williams in the Denver club before Williams was killed.

Wow. Pathetic.

If true, then he deserves what he got.

It has to be purely flauting. Almost sending a message that you have so much money that you can waste thousand dollar bottles of champagne and that it doesn't hurt your bottom line one iota.

After hearing Rome yesterday, there seems to be two theories. Either he got attacked by someone who was pissed that they got sprayed with champagne, or the fact that he was spraying all that money away made him a prime target for a robbery.

To me, this doesn't seem like a random robbery, not one of those, "hey look, let's rob that guy with the shiny bling." I'd say Walker invited this.

Yep...champagne on your shirt defiantly gives you the right to beat someone unconscious.

I think what Gothamite was saying was that Javon invited the trouble onto himself.

Frankly, your teammate died in your arms no less than a year ago after a night of club violence, and you're still out carousing and carrying on? Sorry, that would have had a much bigger impact on me if I was in his position.

We're all responsible for our actions and the repercussions that come from said actions.

It's a Cardinal thing. You wouldn't understand it.

And for the record, it's nice to see St. Thomas More Catholic High School and Jules Behrnard School for Religious Formation's most famous graduate is showing the school proud. Way to go! *thumbs up*

Who the hell is Josh Hancock? If you talking about that Cardinal reliever that died after drinking and driving - sad, but his fault entirely as well.

Not sure the relevance, though.

If the user who was involved with that were posting here, that might be funny. Might.

As it is, it's completely pointless. Please move on.

It's a long story...and indeed irrelevant.

Thank you. That's exactly what I was going for.
