Lawrence Taylor in Paid For Sex Scandal - aka "Why Famous People Do Dumb Things"


Ok, none of us are angels, of course. Well, MOST of us are not angels, so I'm not judging the act perpetrated here. I'm remarking on the sheer and absolute stupidity of the act. And while I do know a bit about his history, I can't begin to say that I have a clue what's going on in LT's life these days.
However, I must say, how can he be THIS stupid??

First of all, I'm not sure why he's having to pay for sex -- I'm sure he can still rely on his past fame to get some, especially here in good old New York, New York. I'm sure that there are still standing ovations and many pats on the back whenever he steps into any NY or NJ bar...along with more than a few both old and young women who would latch onto any famous guy in their midst in a second. This guy is a bit of a legend here, with two Super Bowl trophies and the honor of being an NFL Hall of Famer. Hell, lesser athletes and even the average, good looking guy walking down the street can get lucky with the ladies on much less. So, why would he end up paying for sex in a seedy roadside motel in a tryst arranged by some seedy pimp? The entire scenario just defies logic. Just plain dumb, really. Dumb, dumb, DUMB.


The Glory Days



Anyhow, let's just say he stepped in it big time, now that it has been found out that the girl is underage (and, like, couldn't you tell???). To their credit, law enforcement is also going after this pimp big time, but in the meantime, Lawrence Taylor can kiss any hint of future endorsements or future anythings goodbye. Hey, he just got that Nutrisystem contract recently, but guess what? That just went up in smoke. They dropped him like a hot potato. For an aging athlete with his glory days tucked far, far back in the past, these endorsement opportunities become fewer and farther in between. That football money only lasts but so long -- after a while you look up and realize that you still need to do something to pay the bills. He just shot himself in the foot on that one, trust me.

What makes these famous people do such stupid things? For not so famous folks, it's different - the press isn't there waiting for you to f up, and even if they were, they wouldn't give a damn. We get to commit all of our little sins and faux pas in the shadows. However, for the famous, and even the almost famous - not so much.
I can only ponder "what the hell were they thinking?"

LT must of been going through some crazy depression to get laid by a 16 year girl posing to be a 21+yr woman. Men will do always do something stupid at least once in their lifetime. It's just how they work. Do I blame him completely, NO, because he probably thought that she was older but I guess sometimes when your famous, you need to always double check before one of these regular joe's look for their 15 minutes of fame. After the whole Tiger woods story Every girl in the world said they slept with him and got paid for it, ironically right?

What a shame if this turns out to be true, This guy was oncew the most feared defensive player in the game, and now this. I'm gonna choose to remember the great games he played for my team. If it is true, may God forgive him, becaue many will not.

I also wonder sometimes I wonder what is going on inside peoples minds???

Everyone makes mistakes, some worse than others...the bottom line is he made a bad decision & didn't think before he acted!

If he isn't in a committed relationship what he does should be his business, EXCEPT when what he does is with an under aged young girl!!! That is wrong...

Lets hope he has learned from his mistakes!
Cheers

I have no problem with men famous or otherwise paying for sex. But,I heard that not only was this girl under aged but that she used her cell phone to text a friend that she was frightened. What is wrong here is whatever the hell he was doing to frighten the girl.

Maybe its the fact he is paying for sex and the seedyness of it all, is what turns him on....Its a buzz for him....

He has paid for sex, it aint the end of the world....

Hey, pay for it.... no biggie to me. For some guys, that might be the only option, you know?
I'm just thinking that he could have at least dealt on a higher level with it! lol!
High class call girls still exist, and are very discrete, they say....
He didn't have to do the Huggy Bear and his ten dollar ho' routine!! :D

I think the problem begins when "society" literally tells certain people that they can live by a different set of rules because they have lots of money, are "celebrities," "beautiful," or "really, really smart." Society tells them "you're better than US ... you're "special."

The mind becomes distorted in some way, shape or form and nearly everything becomes acceptable in their own little warped minds, regardless of who happens to be in their path of destruction.

Unfortunately, some are monsters already and some we create.

That's precisely the price of fame. If you want to be there in the spotlight then you have to ready for all kinds of media attention, even bad ones. They don't resent a good image for kids to follow either, they should be role models. They don't have to be angels, just smart enough to not get caught.

Some famous people live by different rules than normal folks or they think they won't get caught. Whatever. But with an underage girl is just sick.
