That’s a little too strong.  He’s entitled to compensation.  He’s also entitled to not be sued for trying to get compensation.  But no one should go to jail or have their future compromised by a party that got out of control.  Using terms like “shock and awe” suggests that’s what Holloway hopes to do.

WOAH THERE, NBC SPORTS REPORTER. I AGREED WITH THE ARTICLE TIL THE END WHEN YOU SAID THAT THEY SHOULDN’T GO TO JAIL/HAVE THEIR FUTURE COMPROMISED–BY A “PARTY THAT GOT OUT OF CONTROL”

 

OK NOPE. THAT’S A EUPHEMISM THAT SURE AS HELL DOESN’T FIT

 

THEY FUCKING BROKE INTO HOLLOWAY’S HOUSE! I AGREE WITH HOLLOWAY IN WHAT I WOULD DO IF MY KID WAS ONE OF THOSE TEENAGERS.

It really wasn’t an “OOPS WILD PARTY DRANK A LITTLE OH NOES” or a “WOAH WILD PARTY EH THOSE PICTURES OF ME JUMPING AROUND WITH MY SHIRT SWINGING ABOVE MY HEAD ARE CRAZY!” NO.

IT WAS A “GUYS WE BROKE INTO SOMEONE’S HOUSE AND THEN CAUSED $20,000 IN DAMAGES AND THEN PROCEEDED TO PUT IT ON OUR TWITTER! OUR PUBLIC TO THE INTERNET SOCIAL NETWORKING SITE!”–> which by the way, in case you didn’t know? Employers and colleges check your social networking sites all the time.

So their parents are suing HOLLOWAY for pulling pictures off to find out who were part of the party–because their precious little fuckwits committed a crime and were stupid enough to put it online for the world to see (AND SHOWED THAT THEY WERE PROUD OF THEIR ACTIONS)???

Wow. Way to go.

EX-NFL PLAYER’S NEW YORK HOME TRASHED BY PARTYING TEENS - Former NFL offensive lineman Brian Holloway initially thought the Twitter photos showing young people partying at his family’s second home in upstate New York were a hoax. Then he saw pictures of teenagers standing on the dining room table he bought with his Super Bowl bonus.

Holloway’s rural vacation home was trashed during a Labor Day weekend party attended by up to 400 teenagers. Holloway said the partiers caused at least $20,000 in damage, breaking windows and doors, punching holes in walls and spraying graffiti. He saw the whole thing unfold live on Twitter — and now he’s using the teens’ own posts to reveal their identities and to try to set them on a better path.

Holloway, who played offensive tackle for the New England Patriots and Los Angeles Raiders in the 1980s, said his 19-year-old son, a University of Southern Florida sophomore, alerted him to the party after receiving tweets about it the night of Aug. 31.

Holloway was at his home in Lutz, Fla., at the time and watched as more tweets about the party were posted, many of them accompanied by photos of young people drinking throughout his home in Stephentown, on the Massachusetts border 25 miles southeast of Albany.

Before he could call police, more tweets reported that officers had arrived, Holloway said. The partygoers scattered across his 200-acre property, which includes the main house and a guest house set amid rolling countryside in the foothills of the Berkshire Mountains.

Yvonne Keefe, spokeswoman for the Rensselaer County Sheriff’s Office, confirmed Wednesday that a “very large investigation” into the party was underway. Police believe 200 to 400 young people were at the party, but investigators aren’t commenting on the role social media is playing in the probe, she said.

No arrests have been reported.

Word of the party had spread via social media, and it attracted students at high schools from the Albany area and western Massachusetts, Holloway said. Holloway, who’s now a motivational speaker, said he gave anti-drug and alcohol talks at some of those same schools during his playing days, which included an appearance in Super Bowl XX, when the Patriots lost to the Chicago Bears.

Holloway said the partiers broke about 10 windows and glass doors, punched dozens of holes in the walls, dragged kegs of beer across oak floors and left behind an “enormous amount” of graffiti. His $20,000 damage estimate does not include personal items that were stolen.

Several teens who weren’t at the party but heard about it showed up this week and helped remove urine-soaked carpets and 10 large trash bags filled with liquor bottles, Holloway said, adding that drug paraphernalia also was found scattered about his property.

Holloway, a father of eight, said he used Twitter postings to compile 200 names of teens he said were at the party. He has been posting them on a website — helpmesave300 — in an effort to get them to come forward, take responsibility for their actions and change their behavior.

He said he is inviting “the 300” to show up and help clean the place up for a celebration picnic he is hosting this weekend for military personnel. (Photo: Associated Press)

anonymous asked:

You Americans are used to a little partying that's why children go out and binge drink. Your system is way too fucked and for you to call children shameful for having fun is outrageous. You're just a sheep.

Excuse you.

You cannot just judge an entire population by what a group of reckless teenagers did.

Let me focus on your ask from start to finish yeah?

You Americans are used to a little partying that’s why children go out and binge drink

A little partying? Are you saying that the “children” went out and did a little partying??? It was 300 teenagers. I wouldn’t call that little. Also I’m pretty sure that not all American are used to a “little partying.” You seem to getting your information from the movies?

Your system is way too fucked

What system? Is way too fucked? Are you saying our “partying” system? Do you actually think we encourage stealing, breaking in, trespassing, vandalizing, doing drugs, underage drinking, and crazy actions like that? NO. There is no system.

for you to call children shameful for having fun is outrageous

WOAH! HOLD UP. “HAVING FUN”??? NOPE. Is trespassing suddenly having fun??? Is graffiti-ing someone else’s house having fun? Is underage drinking, doing drugs, wrecking someone’s house, laughing it up on Twitter when the police come, is not showing up at what’s supposed to be a forgiving clean up session suddenly having fun??? WOW, we have different definitions of fun, anon.

YES I CALL IT SHAMEFUL. MY GENERATION IS NOT ALL LIKE THIS. BUT IT’S PEOPLE LIKE THOSE TEENAGERS THAT MAKE ME ASHAMED. I WOULD NEVER DO SUCH THINGS AND MY FRIENDS WOULDN’T EITHER–but these people did, so YES, I call it SHAMEFUL.

It’s not at all “outrageous” to call it shameful. 

You think that just by calling our system “fucked up” you can suddenly think that we’d condone such criminal acts (yes, we know that breaking and entering then throwing a party that causes $20,000 of damage is illegal and not okay)? And that we’d be OUTRAGEOUS if we called it SHAMEFUL? You don’t have that right.

You’re just a sheep

Wow, did you not see that I’m standing up for what I believe in? That I did not approve of their actions?

Cool. I like sheep, motherfucker.

EX-NFL PLAYER BRIAN HOLLOWAY PURSUING CHARGES AGAINST TEENS WHO TRASHED HIS HOME - Former NFL offensive lineman Brian Holloway, whose second home in upstate New York was trashed by partying teens earlier this month, said Thursday he is now …pursuing charges.

Holloway said that after waiting more than three weeks for trespassing teens to take responsibility, he signed papers authorizing the sheriff to bring charges in the Labor Day weekend party that drew up to 400 youths.

“Everyone that broke the law, I’m pressing charges against,” Holloway said, according to CBS New York. “The parents had a chance and students had chance to come forward, and only four did.”

The Rensselaer County sheriff’s office said no charges had been filed in the case as of Thursday morning.

Holloway, who played offensive tackle for the New England Patriots and Los Angeles Raiders in the 1980s, gained national attention by reposting party pictures the teens had put up on social media sites. Holloway said he posted them on the website helpmesave300.com in an effort to get the teens to come forward, take responsibility for their actions and change their behavior.

Instead, he said, some parents were angry about his website and there was even a threatened lawsuit.

“I made the best effort I can to communicate,” he said.

Holloway has said the partiers caused at least $20,000 in damage to his rural vacation home near the Massachusetts border, including broken windows and holes in the wall.

He said Thursday he would leave it to the authorities to decide on proper charges, but he expects “waves” of arrests in the coming months. (Photo: Associated Press)
I really just dont get it

Like, if my mom found out I threw a party with booze and drugs in the house of someone I didnt know and who didnt know me, she’d kill me. 

She’d turn my bitch ass in. 

and she’d hunt down every kid who was there too. 

Id literally never see the light of day except to clean that mans home and go to school. 

Why would parents get mad? Because the owner found out? 

The owner is on the website talking about how these lives can be changed for the better after they TRASHED HIS HOME and youre mad? 

They must be on some shit. 

on another note, i just finally read stuff about brian holloway’s house getting trashed by NY teens. and all i have to say is that it just makes me depressed for our generation. 

i’m not saying that our generation is the worst in terms of partying/irresponsibility but platforms like twitter/instagram/facebook has made it so much easier to broadcoast stupidity and illegal activity. if you don’t think that people won’t check your social media profile before you get hired, you’re dead wrong. saying stuff like “im wasted lol” is probably not the best message to send out to potential employers, even if you’re 17..

i mean, jesus, if you’re going to break and enter, steal, destroy private property, do drugs, drink underage, etc… don’t take pictures with your fucking face in it for everyone to see. good way to get arrested. 

this hurts my head.
