    Excellent: Murderous Slime-Bag O.J. Simpson Ordered To Fork Over Video Game Profits

    Personally, I could give a crap about the Brown family, as I believe they are a bunch of media-sniffing, trailer trash-dwelling, cultural vampires. Yet anything that aids the Goldmans in getting some cash out of this vile, dog-fucking, waste of oxygen is good news...

    O.J. ordered to pay video game money

    LOS ANGELES - O.J. Simpson must pay the family of the late Ronald Goldman any money he earns from a video game featuring his likeness to satisfy a $38 million wrongful death judgment, a judge ruled Tuesday.

    A Los Angeles Superior Court judge ordered that any money be turned over to Goldman's father, Fred.

    The game, "All-Pro Football 2K8," features Simpson's likeness playing as one of 240 former football greats.

    Simpson, who now lives in Miami, was acquitted of murder in the 1994 killings of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman but found liable in civil court.

    Simpson owes Goldman's family the $38 million as part of that lawsuit. Goldman estate attorney David Cook welcomed the court order and accused Simpson of profiting from his public persona.

    Calls to Simpson's attorney were not immediately returned Tuesday.

    The judge also ordered Simpson to turn over all correspondence, documents and contracts with the video game's publisher, Take-Two Interactive Software, to the Goldman family. The court's order did not detail how much money Simpson might have earned from the deal.

    Last week, a federal bankruptcy judge in Miami awarded the Goldmans rights to a book Simpson wrote based on the slayings. The book was never released because of public outrage.

    I'd sincerely hope for the opposite, seeing as where the money would be headed.

    I can't believe he can get away with not paying anything for that settlement for almost 15 years.

    Think about it: How many "dead-beat dads" are out there? How many folk avoid paying taxes for years? Unless a faction decides to seriously enforce the decrees handed out by municipalities, they will be scoffed at or at worst, completely ignored.

    It sucks all around is what I'm getting at.

    I totally understand what you're saying. I thought that the Goldman's already got a ton of cash from the dickhead murderer. My mistake. I know there is not enough money to make up for what happened to that family, I'm just tired of hearing about it. I'm surprised that nothing has 'happened' to OJ since the trial.

    By "happened" do you mean a random bullet straying across the golf course and accidentally hitting him in the temporal lobe where Juice happens to be putting at that moment?

    Note to God: I'd like to point out that we've been getting some quite nasty random lightning strikes here in southern Florida as of late, particularly around golf courses...sir, with all due respect, perhaps you would care to refine your aim?

    Oh, and a warning in advance, please, so as I may shut off my PC.

    Your article forgot to mention the team he is on:

    "SANTA MONICA, California - Relatives of murder victim Ron Goldman won a court order on Tuesday seizing any money O.J. Simpson earns for lending his name and likeness to a football video game with a fictional team called the Assassins and a knife-wielding mascot."

    I was going to pick this game up, just because the 2K series kicked so much ass, but not after reading this...

    I guess I'll make John Madden $50 richer for the 14th year in a row...

    Isn't this the game in which one plays with a roster of "All Stars", rather than actual teams? I was under the impression that the game allows players to pick like, say Dan Marino, yet rather than with stats to refer to, one gets dubious "hints" such as "best in 4th quarter comebacks" and the like.

    I merely vibed that the player would be representing the team he rose to fame with, and in Simpson's case, Buffalo.
