Kellen Winslow + GSXR750 = Idiot

Haven't seen anything posted yet. Cleveland's Brown's (1st draft pick of 2004) Tight End Kellen Winslow suffered internal injuries and swelling of his shoulder and knee following an accident in a parking lot with his brand new Suzuki GSXR 750. Video has him flying around the parking lot until he lost control, hit a curb and then a small tree.

I'll post a link. here's one link

What a tool. He missed 14 games last year due to broken leg. He's finally healed after multiple surgeries on his fractured fibula.

The bike looks all messed up. He had NO license either. Apparently he didn't bother to fasten his helmet as it flew off immediately.

Undetermined how long he'll be out. And, there maybe financial issues involved as his contract specifically outlines "NO MOTORCYCLE RIDING".

He's a $30 million dollar Cleveland Brown investment and has only played 2 games and looks like he'll probably miss at least half of this season as well.

But, he's OK, I guess.

And the video shows the donut shaped burnouts and his stoppie attempts.

Re: Kellen Winslow + GSXR750 = Idiot

Isn't he the a-hole from Miami U who had the meltdown in the locker room when the media interviewed him after a loss?

The same one that broke his leg in (I think) his first pro game he played...his career is really taking off

Edit: Guess I should have read all of SuperDave's post first

What do you expect from a University of Miami alumni, Rocket Science!

The most popular major at that school is Thong wearing 101......

A million here, a million there. Chump change.

We'll see how much he loses after this "stunt".

He's the same guy who's agent threatened to sit him out unless he got this huge contract.

I remember when Jamal Anderson held out for a huge contract renegociation, Atlanta gave in and in the first game he blew out his knee and kept all the guaranteed money. Not that this is the same thing. I hope.

Terrell Owens - "...but I have a family to think of ..." $49,000,000 just wont cut it.

It was on all the local Cleveland channels. Someone was taking video while Winslow was flying around the parking lot (circles) and doing small endos, and even showed the last turn where he lost it, but the video lost coverage before he crashed.

Touchdown Tommy!!

Re: Kellen Winslow + GSXR750 = Idiot

I read an article on ESPN about it last night and figured he was doing something stupid rather than the "learning to ride" BS they wrote.

Is a paradigm worth 20 cents?

Same thing as Jason Williams a couple years ago for the Bulls did...said he was just taking it easy and when shifting to second he lost control of it and ran it up a telephone pole

Williams cost himself millions with that one too.
