When Broner was arrested the internet (particularly boxing forums, especially those that dislike Floyd) were filled with a plethora of hate-filled comments aimed at Adrien for his antics but I feel that carrying a gun in an airport (unless you are security or the Po Po) is a much more dangerous crime but oddly enough I haven't seen much animosity aimed at Robert Guerrero for his stupidity.

Is there some type of double standard? Or am I just too suspicious<<<LOL

Both men made mistakes. One (Broner) made the mistake of being drunk off of liquor and fame and took things to the extreme. The other man (Guerrero) while seemingly sober, has certainly seemed drunk off of new found fame and he also took things to the extreme.



I don't think it's a lapse in intelligence, Check. I think it's hubris fueling lapses in judgement. RG and crew have been too high on this new found attention. I watched a video recently of him and his crew, and you could see the giddiness and arrogance all over them (sparked by his pops). And I thought to myself, these guys are so green. They're out of their league and dont even know it.

What's interesting is Robert criticized Victor Ortiz's mental fortitude and suggested that Victor let the bright lights get to him and fell apart. I think Robert himself has fallen victim to the lights and the cameras as well. Lets see if he can pull himself together before May 4th comes a knocking.

In my mind I was making the same comparison to victor ortiz! Lol

I like how you put it with regards to him expressing his Christianity. I have no problem with people expressing their religion, but Robert just seems to be making more of a mockery of it. Tebow never tried to shove his religion down our throats, Ali didn't really either, same goes for jimmer (as a kings fan I hate him for many other reasons). With Robert it just seems like hes been trying to sell everything he can just a little too much ever since he came back from surgery (his wifes story, Christianity, beating nobodies).

And his crew has always been nothing but arrogant and act like wanna-be bay area cholos. When the story about the gun came out I thought it was someone from his entourage carrying the piece.
