Aldon Smith and Delanie Walker both have a lot of explaining to do.
NFL players love to party, but apparently a Smith-hosted affair in June of 2012 got a little testy and a man named Ronndale Esporlas was shot. Esporlas may or may not be credible, yet his claims that he “sustained serious, catastrophic and permanent injuries,” should scare the living day lights out of the San Francisco 49ers. Even still, Esporlas is obviously confident in his case as he filed a lawsuit on Tuesday that also includes Walker, who was with San Fran during the time of the supposed shooting, but signed with the Tennessee Titans this offseason.
The lawsuit has yet to be brought to forefront in full, but the initial reports say that Walker and Smith both fired illegally processed handguns on numerous occasions to end the party. Do these guys think they’re at the Kentucky Derby or what?
Either way, this is the last thing that the NFL wants as the Aaron Hernandez saga has permanently put a black spot on an already dark age of crime.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has ruled with a heavy fist as of late, yet is this lawsuit potent enough to suspend Smith or Walker? Of course it is! Not to mention, Esporlas’ description of a June 29th house party gone wrong scenario makes complete sense considering this was the same exact night that Smith was stabbed in the shoulder and the abdomen and taken to a local hospital.
This is only the beginning for Smith, Walker and the reigning NFC Champion 49ers — happy NFL season, folks!
