Plaxico Burress failed to pay damages on a rental car this summer and is being sought out by a collection agency.

Burress rented a Chevy Suburban on June 2 and returned it a couple days later with scratches and dents in the bumper. The wideout didn't inform the company of the damages immediately and did not return their phone calls. Sounds familiar.

You got admit Burress is a cancer in this teams locker room. Will he ever learn or return phone calls.LOL

 
Maybe, it will take time. Kind of like when he caught a pass in his first year with the steelers and went down untouched. He then spiked the ball down, in which the defense picked it up an ran with it.

See, he not too bright

I agree 100%. I don't think they'll ever win a Super Bowl as long as he's on the team.Except, you know, for the one they already won with him. Where he caught the game-winning TD. Damn, cancer sucks.

The fact that this guy continues to make terrible decisions and the press will continue to ask questions about his terrible behavior. This guy does not get it.

Ehh...This doesn't seem like it would cause too much locker room dissension. Would you care to put this in perspective with what the Cowboys and Adam Jones are dealing with right now?

You see there lies the problem and that is this team will not always win the Super Bowl and if the answer is only winning then when bad times come this type of foolishness will only make things worse. Winning makes things go away you do not always win.
 
Old news already here in NY. They talked about this a couple days ago and as of now, nothing more appears to have happened.

Fair enough Koya, hey it seems you live in the area do you see this guy as a problem down the line. In a dynasty would you deal him right now as his stock will never be higher?

Tough to say. You assume some risk whenever you have a player who has issues, but Plax is in some ways not as bad as other guys (like Owens who can destroy a locker room, or a guy getting arrested over and over).For the most part, Plax gets fined a ton for being late at practices. He doesnt communicate with the team. Mostly stuff like that. Doesn't seem to be a concern in the locker room, and anyone calling him a cancer either knows something I don't, or doesnt know the Giants. He isnt Shockey. The guy also gives a ton on the field - playing hurt and everything. In terms of Dynasty, if not for the issues, imo, he's on par with anyone, Wayne, Fitzgerald and all. But his issues do add some risk, and you never know for sure. In a one year league, I wish he were on my field.

I would say it is worse considering this guy just got suspended for 1 game and I think 2 game checks (It may have been taken down on the second game check to half ) I think the way this guy misses meetings and is late for meetings and fined a lot by the franchise. I mean how does that look to other teammates who are there and follow the rules that are set before them. I would say he is a big locker room problem. Right now they are 4-0 and winning is the ultimate deodorant but let some bad times come there way it may stir the drink a bit. Pacman he has no problem on the field and missing meetings he is just a mess off the field. Both bad scenerio's but lets not give Burress a pass either.

Fair enough. I see where you are coming from but I don't think this particular instance with the car rental company will be all that big a deal.

Yeah I brought that up more as a joke because he did not answer their calls to him either as he did to the Giants.
 
Burress played evey game last year on a badly hurt ankle. The guy is a warrior. You think that the other players think he divides a locker room. I think the contrary. Everyone love Plaxico. His name is 'PLAXICO' for Pete's sake. He's an enigma wrapped in a riddle.

It's ok. They'll just shine the Plax Signal into the sky, and he'll show up with the cops, battered women and process servers in tow:

my wife just damaged her rental car, and forgot to report it. She paid recently and all was settled. This is Burress having to pay a company what he makes in 2 minutes of a game. He will and it will be over.

Whats next? Plax defaulted on his mortgage, kick him off the team!!!

Maybe if he was traded to the Cowboys he would straighten up :shrug:

I completely agree. I only responded the way I did because Mustang Mary is on such a crusade to make the Cowboys not look that bad despite having to hire nannies for their overgrown infants.

How did the press acquire this information?
debt collector may have a problem here.
Exact reason I'm asking.
Any action filed in court is a public record, and I'm sure that local reporters have friends in the courthouse to place calls to them when a celebrity has a case filed against them. Not a huge mystery here really.
First, did this get filed as a court action? It appears to have gone from Rental Agency to collection agency. No court in play, from what I've read so far.Second, I've had some firsthand experience with 3rd tier rental agencies ( not your Hertz/Avis, or even Dollar/Nationao/Budget ) and I've found they have an interesting practice. The rental agency, if they have any minor damage, will often "contact" the last renter several months after the initial rental, claiming they "tried to contact" immediately following the return, but were unable to. The repairs are charged and given to a collection agency. In the case I recall, there was an existing dent, which was marked on the original paperwork. Upon return, the dent was noted, but as it was pre-existing, no action was taken at that point. We heard nothing for 6 months, then get a bill for the repair work and 3 days loss of rental. It seems the play by the rental company is to delay contact until you have discarded your initial paperwork so you have no record of the pre-existing dent. Amazingly, the rental company couldn't manage to produce the paperwork, either. Not sure if this is the case, but it seems to fit.In any case, this has no bearing on Plax in the locker room. Its among the biggest non-stories I've seen reported.
 
Burris was a walking screwup at MSU.

The guy has one thing going for him, he can run and catch a football.

A company I do business with has a few Ex-Spartans employed, a RB that played two years with Burris said "There is team time..and there is Burris time" said Burris was late for everything.

Many collection agencies are in fact law firms that have the ability to file collection actions. I was obviously assuming that one had been filed here, so if I was wrong then the information would have gotten to the media through some other means. I know of no right to confidentiality for collection matters however. It's not like health information where Plax could sue them over its release.

Yet you call getting drunk and having the police called for a fight a non-story because it happened to your cowboys?Umm...try some consistency.THis has nothing to do with his actions in the locker room and so far, there is nothing out there even close to suggesting he is a locker room cancer.

Again, Mustang Mary is starting these threads because he's trying to show, in defense of his daycare class Cowboys team that "everybody has these problems". Don't forget that he's the one who started that inane thread addressed to "everyone other than Cowboys fans" or some such.
