Walker matter under review

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Monday, June 16th, 2008 at 8:03 pm in Oakland Raiders.

A Raiders spokesman said “We are in the process of gathering information,” regarding the status of wide receiver Javon Walker, who was reportedly found unconconscious in Las Vegas with an orbital fracture Monday morning.

Walker, according to Fox affiliate KVVU-5, was listed in fair condition.

The Las Vegas-Review Journal reported Walker was spotted at the nightspot “Tryst” at the Wynn “spraying the crowd with some of the 15 bottles of Dom Perignone Rose champagne he ordered.”

Walker signed a free agent contract with $16 million in guaranteed money in the offseason but was still rounding into shape following knee surgery. Coach Lane Kiffin said he wanted Walker to lose weight before the Raiders went to training camp in Napa.

A report filed with the the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department identified Walker as the “victim of an early morning crime.”

The statement read as follows:

“The victim of an early morning crime near the intersection of Winnick Avenue and Koval lane has been identified as Javon Walker. Officers responded to a report of a man down at that location at approximately 7:19 a.m. this morning. When officers arrived they found an unconscious male, who appears to have been the victim of a robbery. The victim was transported to an area hospital with siginficant injuries. Late this afternoon detectives were able to positively identify the victim as Walker.

“Walker remains hospitalized at this time and this investigation remains ongoing. Anyone with information concinering this event is urged to contact Crime Stoppers at (702) 385-5555.”

    There’s two things that are relevant and concern me here:

    1) I hope Javon Walker is ok and has a speedy recovery, and that’s my sentiments towards him as a human being.

    2) Unfortunately for Javon this is a business. We need to start looking for a replacement. On the football field I truly believe that he is potentially DAMAGED GOODS! We need to start speculating on a new #1 receiver and how we can go about acquiring one.

  • vegas raider

    I said he was a victim, but he has to take some of the blame right? What the hell does race have to do with it?

    Patch, did dad use the N word regularly around you kids? When did it start for you?

  • vegas raider

    There is an old saying: trouble finds trouble…

  • Eyepatch

    Quit manipulating what people say MR. Since you know so much answer the question, Is making it rain gang related or just what high paid athletes do?

  • http://none MR

    So then, Vegas, every victim has to take blame, right? Can’t have it both ways. If someone is a victim, they’re a victim. Period. We live in a society of laws. If someone didn’t like Javon spraying champaign on them, they should have notified the club management or authorities. They instead took the law into their own hands, which nullifies whatever victim status they had. At that moment, they became the criminals and Javon Walker became the victim. But you think Javon had it coming, because you have a problem with black athletes. Right?

  • ???

    Yes I have Mr. But why sould I give you the satisfaction and do it now?

    See if they made us all register we would have a exact post count for each of us and you will see that most of the time my posts are not really any longer then over half the people that post here regularly. I just dont post more then every few weeks socant back that up. Spelling is a different issue I know that stinks but I dont care about that my point can still be made.

  • http://none MR

    Eyepatch, when did it start? When you were a kid? Dad use the N word a lot in front of you?

  • Eyepatch

    Or do I have to get Armond to give me a straight answer?

  • Florida Pete

    let’s get practical…

    if it’s double vision… catch the ball on the left…

    if it’s blurry vision… catch whatever is actually moving…

    if it’s no vision… use the force…

    we’re good to go.

  • Eyepatch

    Your raceist lunacy is old MR.

  • Eyepatch

    Walker gets to prove he can catch the ball blind folded now for sure.

  • vegas raider

    You are an idiot. There is hundreds if not thousands of athletes/celebrities of all races that come here every week, go out stunting and have a great time spending thousands of dollars here. That’s fine. Only one of them was found beat up in a burnt out crack ally. My original statement was that he was a victim of a crime, and of his own stupidity.

  • http://none MR

    Vegas, 9/11 victims brought it on themselves, right?

    seeing MoRon posting on this site must be like looking down and seeing genital warts.

    #812 Maybe if he only injured one eye he can where a eyepatch on the field. There you go Mr. only 2 sentences this time just for you buddy. :)

  • http://none MR

    Vegas, if Walker were white, you wouldn’t be as harsh though, right? You’d have his back. You’d want to know who did this to him, right?

    OAKGLENN, BUDDY OLE PAL, RISE AND SHINE!!!! WE WERE WAITING ON YOU.

    SO, NOW THAT YOU’RE HERE…

    DID THE GREAT ALL KNOWING AL DAVIS MAKE A MISTAKE BY SIGNING WALKER?

    You were calling Walker a bum last night. Saying he’s not earning his money. Al just signed him like a few months ago, dude, and boy, were YOU on board, using Walker’s signing as proof that Al certainly still has what it takes!!!

    So…Did Al screw up, or are we going to drop this off on Kiff’s door step? Let’s hear it, Oak. I need a laugh.

  • Exlaraiderseasonticketholder

    Rocky Balboa says to Mick, “I’m seeing triple!” Mick says “hit the one in the middle!” lol

  • vegas raider

    I do want to know who did this so they can arrest him and make MY TOWN SAFER!! Why do you keep bringing up race? And putting words in my mouth?

  • Listen Up

    Guess what Darrent Williams and Walker were doing the night Darrent was shot and died in Walker’s arms… yep – spraying bottles of champagne in a night club.

  • The Dude

    Maybe this is just what Walker needs and kick up the a$$(or punch in the eye) so that he starts gettin in shape, working harder and thinkin about his life. He must be lying in his hospital bed just waiting to be released and get fit and prove his critics- such as me- wrong. I hope he does. Hopefully he will get the grey tracksuit on a pull a Rocky Balboa

    Eyepatch, how much of your day to you spend shaking your head at blacks?

  • darkknight01

    What I want to know is if the Raiders have a non football related injury clause to his contract? Lets hope they do….

  • http://none MR

    Eyepatch, do you focus on black behavior to distract yourself from how screwed up whites are, anymore? The Paris Hiltons, you know? Figure as long as your people aren’t as bad as blacks, everything is ok? Is that sort of the gist behind your racism?

  • vegas raider

    Hey MR. since you keep bringing race to everything why don’t you go read about Jesse Lee Patterson and see what he thinks about young black athletes. Race mongor

  • Eyepatch

    It has nothing to do with being black. Its about knowing where you are and what you could get into, but ignoring the obvious. Walker needs his contract voided and redone if he wants to play this year.

    Yep…its’ sad they Walker hasn’t learned anything since that tragedy.

  • vegas raider

    What’s the gist behind your racism MR?

    Oakie Poke…

    Come out and plaaaayaaaaaaayayyyyyyyy

    Did Al make a mistake by signing Walker?

    Was it Kiffin’s fault?

    Are you as excited now about Walker as you were before this story broke? Who’s to blame for your let down? It’s not Al, obviously. Kiffin, right? I mean, Kiffin does own half of the team. So Al’s hands were tied, right? Come on, give us some of that Al Davis is never wrong cheese.

  • http://none MR

    Vegas Raider, I’m not a racist. I don’t blame black people for every freaking thing that’s wrong with the world, like you and Eyepatch.

  • STOCKTOWN RAIDER

    Are the people in here Raider fans? Everybody know Raider fans party hard represent Raiders to the fullest. I can’t believe all the people who are putting Javon down . I know he shouldn’t have bee there that late but we most peoplw who party in thier 20′s party hard. Things like this happen. It’s a damn shame,but lets be behind him, not talk crap about him, you damn losers!!!!!!!!!! Raiders for life, and anyone who wears the jersey!!!!! we all make mistakes fools.

    Wow the rumours are really flying and you guys are going for them hook line and sinker. This is quite entertaining. “My brother knows this guy who knows this other guys who once knew a bathroom attendant at Body English and he said…”

  • vegas raider

    Over/under on Raiders wins this year is 6 here in Vegas. Then Niners are 5.5.

  • Exlaraiderseasonticketholder

    First of all, I hope Javon is ok. Talking about restructing his contract at this point is a non-issue. The hit on the cap number would cause great harm to the structure of the team.

  • vegas raider

    Wanted to buy a white McFadden jersey the other day, but the last two white jerseys I bought were Jeff George and Randy Moss. I didn’t want to put the hex on and bought the home black instead.

  • Eyepatch

    Not if there is an non football related injury clause, most contracts have them.

  • no more infield

    BTW – the one thing this board really needs is a spell checker. You guys are mutilating the english language!… I think they still have dictionary’s. Come on, show some pride in your language…

    ………

    You know? I can agree with that. I don’t hate everyone, literally, but I do hate most people. I believe the human race has peaked and is on it’s way down the sewer, and there’s absolutely no stopping it. So, yeh, I’ll take that label.

    Thing is, people like eyepatch and vegas see the world the same way I do, they just blame black people for it all.

  • Eyepatch

    Humans will migrate into outerspace, so thats a mythology you are following just like your racist rants.

  • qbanis

    Let’s make spraying champagne illegal, as it obviously leads to extreme violence every time it happens.

    Racism is a much different animal when it’s white on dark. Whites own most of this country, are on average wealthier, and are the majority of the population. Whites have the ability to oppress and suppress other races and ethnicities that go against the white grain. Non-whites cannot oppress whites. ‘Thugs’ just have misplaced anger, if they organized and sought revolution whites would still hate, not to mention be scared outta their minds.

  • vegas raider

    I never freakin said that!!! Your credibility is going down the sewer faster than the human race ( which I agree with you by the way)

  • STOCKTOWN RAIDER

    you know , i come here day after day and listen to a bunch of crap about racism and people generalizing or stereotyping other people. Can people in here grow up?
    Real raider fans who actually go to the games and buy
    jerseys and put Raiders logos on their cars do not care about crap like this. We are here to represent raiders and to accept all different types of raider fans. I go to several games every year and party with everyone. I take the games harder than most. I have four sons and they are Raider fans. STop talking crap about each other and be positive. Stay up Javon!!!!
    I am here in norther california with you!!!!!
    Raiddddddeeeeerrrsssss!!!!!!!!!!

    Like that really makes a “real” Raider fan….give me a break….

  • no more infield

    “Real” Raider fans come from all walks of life. Al Davis is color blind and always has been and that should be something we should all try to attain in our day to to day lives. Drop the racism crap. It has no place here…

  • Senile Al

    Don’t worry about Walker, he’s got speed, I still got it.And no I won’t let that Kiffin kid coach MY team…But I’ll blame him if things go wrong.

    Damn, where the hell is my walker, did I tell you about, oh I forgot what I was talking about.

  • darkknight01

    mayweather and his crew are low lifes, mayweather is a wuss and walker should have learned by now to act properly and responsibly after a friend died in his arms.

    Thats it…
