Lawrence Taylor Can't Fight His Demons!

NFL Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor was arrested at a New Jersey Holiday Inn yesterday accused of raping a 16 year-old girl who was being used as a prostitute and apparently forced to have sex with Taylor by her pimp. The whole story is so sordid and deplorable that commentary on it is really beyond words. Of course all of the accusations against Taylor are alleged at this point, but Taylor, who is 51, allegedly had sex with someone who could be his daughter's age which just makes no sense.

We see instances of athletes wasting fame and fortune everyday, and Taylor admittedly has battled drug abuse in addition to fighting other demons. It's a shame that L.T. couldn't fight the demons off, and whether these allegations prove to be true or not, they will always be linked to him.
