  • Statement from Diehl





    I've worked hard during my career to set a positive example, and yesterday I fell far short of this standard.

    I apologize to my family, my fans, my teammates, the New York Giants, and the NFL.

      I made a poor decision that I sincerely regret, and, as always, take full responsibility for my actions.

        What else can you ask? The legal system will handle the sentencing and that will probably include some community service.

          Finally handle the Osi thing and get this. Wow guess we got to keep it interesting. Never expect this from Diehl but at least you know he is going to bounce back and be a better player on and off the field.

            It seems he's taking responsibility for his actions and that's all we can realistically expect. The rest is out of his hands. I suspect his teammates will support him as he would them.

              The attitude someone displays after they make a mistake tells you more about that person than the mistake itself. I expect that DD will earn some forgiveness through the way he accepts responsibility and atones for his actions.

                Diehl is a good guy just made a terrible decision. Being a star athlete and veteran he should know to set a better example but what's done is done and he's sorry it happened.

                Even though athletes have millions of dollars for transportation service they are still human and make mistakes just like the rest of us.


                First last time occurrence for Diehl.

                  I mostly agree, however, people with millions of dollars don't necessary have to spend on transportation services and usually just spend like the rest of us.

                  We know Diehl is a nice guy and he just made a mistake.

                  Also, funny as it seems, I think that bar may get into some trouble because they should have cut him off from more alcohol at some point and should not have let Diehl drive while intoxicated.

                  Thank goodness no one was hurt besides some parked cars. Hopefully, Diehl's punishment will be lite and he'll be good to go for the season.

                    It will definitely matter in the eyes of the Court. Accepting responsibility for and the consequences of your actions is the approach to take.

                      I was thinking along the same lines....Do you know how many drinks a 300 pound man would have to drink to have a .18 blood alcohol ?

                        Over 3 hours, he'd have had to drink 8 or 9 double rum and cokes (saying they were actually poured with 2 shots each). So, we're talking 2.5 to 3 drinks an hour. It'd be 10 of them over 5 hours. So, with as little as 2 drinks an hour he could blow a .18.

                            It takes a lot to get to .18. And the weight of someone is a small factor, one of many, that leads to the final BAC of someone. The highest BAC I have ever seen someone at is .28...and he was beyond out of his mind. It takes a lot more than people think to be over the limit. The idea that 2 drinks puts someone over is total BS.

                              Eh, maybe, but if he was at that bar for hours, judging by his twitter he was there since like 2pm, then its not that difficult.
