    This is a pretty good read. It makes you wonder what the truth is.

    It does. Seems like Hurd almost thought he was in a story, playing a character. Being too trusting when swimming with cartel people. Not sure he really understood what could happen to him and the standard lying to help themselves sort of culture he was involved with.

    I'm sure the truth is somewhere in the middle, but nailing a high profile football player seems like a pretty good notch in someones belt and I'm sure that plays a part in this too.

    I think he was naive and brash and more than a little stupid. Seems he was used and framed by informants who needed a big name sting to save their own tail. Clearly he has a drug problem but Tony montana he aint

    Got sentenced yesterday. 15 years.

    Tough break kiddo
