In the last couple hours the name Darren Sharper has gone viral on the net.

Earlier this afternoon according to CNN reported that Darren Sharper has been charged in the drugging and rape of two women. I noticed an article in the L.A. Times that that number now is 7 women. Bail is at $200,000 and Sharper has been ordered to turn in his passport.

Serious charges and they are trying to increase bail to millions as these other charges have surfaced.

he's innocent until proven guilty but the amount of women suggests this guy is a real creep.

I've been hearing a lot of people ask why he would need to rape women. He's rich, good looking, famous etc. It has nothing to do with not being able to get women. He could get laid all he wants with women that are willing to have sex with him. I bet some really hot women too.

If he's guilty of this he's done it because that normal sex doesn't do it for him. He likes raping women. He likes drugging them and doing whatever he does to them when they are drugged. It's about power, narcissism, chauvinism. The type of person that does this really hates women.

Crap. Thought this was about Shannon Sharpe and I was gonna say how cool he is. Darren Sharper? Guess I don't know that much. Too much law enforcement involvement in pro sports. They have SUCH a pampered life, could they just use a little more brain matter to keep the gravy train going?

Sounds similar to a story (if guilty) I recently read about former Giant/Patriot David Meggett.

They think their macho image entitles them to whatever they see.

Why would a jock have to use DRUGS for sex. Seems to me there's way too many women who like to get it from jocks. There can't be too numerous alternative reasons for spending a lot of time with them. Or maybe there are. I wonder what they could be. Maybe they are rich enough to show them a good time? Still, a treacherous situation could exist where he thinks her mind is made up when it isn't. I'm still shocked that Adrian Peterson has multiple baby mamas. Guess the "Love Boat" Vikings are still with us even if Denny Green is long gone.

You kind of answer your own question about AP. I'd bet that any night he goes out, there is a woman willing to go home with him. There are MANY women who chase athletes and celebrities and have hopes of being 'in a relationship' with them in order to elevate their social status (Think Kanye song). A baby is a guaranteed continuation of said relationship. If I was still in my late teens and twenties and women threw themselves at me, I would have been lucky to only have a couple kids out of wedlock.

Now why Sharper (and Meggett as I posted earlier) feel the need to overpower or take advantage of helpless women tells me their wiring may be off. Being good at football doesn't prevent one from being a sociopath. They could still pull plenty of action otherwise.

Oildog, a sad commentary but true. Women do put themselves at risk chasing celebrities/athletes. The ever growing story about Sharper is horrible, considering the scope of it, if the allegations are all true.
