i'm sure many of you know about brian banks and his current quest to have a career in the NFL. if you don't, this is a man who while in high school was accused of raping a girl. he was an elite college prospect at the time. he maintained his innocence steadfastly, but upon the advice of his lawyers pleaded no contest rather than face the possibility of 40+ years in jail. he served a 5 year sentence and upon release was required to register as a sex offender and wear a GPS monitoring device. recently, upon admission from his accuser that she had lied, he was exonerated of all charges. he is currently training and trying out with many teams around the league in an attempt to make his once lost dreams come true. he is also trying to get a documentary of his story made. he is currently about $20,000 short of the money he needs to make this documentary a reality and has 10 days to raise it. i just donated to his cause and i encourage you to do the same. i'm also hoping he gets a shot to make a team this year. if you're interested in donating, even $1, here is the link:

i figured the tank would be as good a place as any to find some people that are willing to help him tell his story. if this needs to be moved to general, so be it. i'm of the opinion it doesn't; it's NFL related. i'm also of the opinion than many more people will see this in main rather than general.
