Default Re: Clowney Gets Another Speeding Ticket

As a fellow speeder on the interstate, he probably wasn't doing any harm to anyone on the road. He probably didn't kill anyone, threaten anyone, or come close to doing either. He was probably just driving too fast.

Let's not treat this like he almost ran over a kid in a neighborhood driving too fast. He was on the interstate, going over the speed limit. Something that 100% of the people who are commenting on this thread (with a legal drivers license) have probably done.

40 over the speed limit is bad, I'm not saying it's not. But 29 over the speed limit isn't that bad. It looks bad, sure. But is 13 over the speed limit bad? Horrible? No. Does I-77 go from 70 to 60, to 55 within 5 miles? Yes. I can't tell you how many times I've driven from Charlotte to Columbia and completely forgot about the speed changes and driven through the 55 MPH hour at 87 MPH. He got caught, that sucks for him.

However, can we talk about why the media is publicizing this!? When I get a ticket, I don't get put on the news. And I know you're thinking "Well, it's cause he is Clowney..." That's beside the point. If I played football I'd be on the news for playing football, or football related things. If I saved a baby from a house fire, I'd be on the news for saving someones life. If I did something great for the community I'd be on the news for it. But what makes Clowney so much more important than anyone in South Carolina to where when he gets a ticket it gets put on the news?

Spurrier on Clowney's 2nd speeding ticket in several weeks, "I guess he won't have a problem paying for it soon"

that's what I am getting at above. The SOLE thing that comes out of this is a Clowney joke here and there about speeding from Clemptech fans

I lost count of how many speeders I saw going back and forth to Columbia this season.

THIS STORY IS ON SPORTSCENTER. ESPN = TMZ for athletes

I swear on my life they actually did a piece on it. I'm sure once they got the Spurrier quote, it went from ESPNNEWS to ESPN

Maybe a "trap", but guess what? THey messed up bad. They accidentally posted all these cheat sheets around the city. They're on these big metal plates, stuck on metal poles. They tell us how to beat their traps. Not sure why the idiots posted those, they get me out of traps all the time!

The guy is definitely going full speed now. If he only had played as hard as he drives.....kidding.

Coaches should consider some type of suspension for the 1st half of a practice or something.

No way Moving Violations are worthy of suspensions. Also 84 in that spot is an absolute normality.

Preaching to the choir here, chief. Already said Clowney has screwed up. He was wrong, and may lose his license over it.

Simply stating that in the time I have spent in Columbia, I have seen a lot of people pulled in that area. Doesn't make it right.

I'm irritated by this. Clowney should be going fast every time he drives. I'm tired of him taking off whenever he feels like it

Default Re: Clowney Gets Another Speeding Ticket

There's no defending his driving IMO. If he was going 10 over or maybe even 20, then that's one thing. He gets a ticket going 40 over and then another going 30 over a couple weeks later? Just shows he doesnt GAF. Hopefully he matures and realizes that speed limits and other traffic laws exist for a reason. Hopefully he's not one of those dbags who tailgate people at 100 MPH.

Are you curious how any other college football player pays for their insurance? He's not the only player to drive a car. I bet Connor Shaw drives a car, do you wonder how he pays for it, too?
