Killer Instinct

25 years later, can we separate O.J. the athlete from O.J. the murderer?

Senorise Perry is a running back for the Buffalo Bills. Coming out of college at Louisville, he signed as an undrafted free agent with the Chicago Bears in 2014. He later played for Miami, mostly on special teams, before catching on with Buffalo this spring. And last week, the Bills gave him permission to wear Number 32 on his jersey. Number 32. A minor NFL player, sitting somewhere around fourth or fifth on the team’s offseason depth chart, now has the number not given out by the Bills since 1977. The number of the greatest tailback ever to play in Buffalo. The number of possibly the most beautiful runner in the history of football. The number of a murderer. The number of O.J. Simpson.

Ohio State University head football coach Urban Meyer has been suspended for three games for his handling of an assistant coach’s alleged domestic abuse, much to the chagrin of basically everyone who follows the sport and who isn’t angry this sentence didn’t start with “The.” How bad are the allegations? Well, reading through the full findings of the Urban Meyer investigation, I couldn’t help but notice the similarities between Meyer’s scandal and those of ol’ Crooked Hillary Clinton.
