    i think it's safe to assume Eddie De has been a vocal Trump supporter. Just helping out a fellow Con.

    "The White House announced the surprise decision to reporters on Tuesday, with NFL greats Jerry Rice, Jim Brown, Ronnie Lott and Charles Haley in attendance"

    Never thought Jim Brown would sink so low :(

    Surprised that Haley and Rice were there I wonder if they knew, they've both been very outspoken in the past about how the NFL treats black players, I wouldn't expect either one to like Trump but maybe they just like Eddie D.

    Jerry Rice, the Hall of Fame receiver, told reporters, "I take my hat off to Donald Trump for what he did," referring to the DeBartolo pardon.

    I think this short article sums up nicely why this pardon happened.......

    It's notable that Louisiana Gov. Edwin Edwards (D) was also convicted in the scheme with DeBartolo, but no pardon for the democrat of course. So clearly this was not a pardon brought for injustice.

    This is getting ridiculous, I guess we need a pardon thread now. All of this feels like a precursor to the inevitable Roger Stone pardon.

    I was never a huge Rice fan but that really surprises me he was pretty outspoken. I just don't see how people of color can support Trump.

    They have not figured out that he has always lied about everything. Morons.

    He’s pardoning all these knuckleheads to butter us up for the big 3 next week.

    Then he can just say, “Nothing to see here, President pardons people all the time. It’s within his power. “
