Andre Rison was brought on with the Packers for the last half of the 1996 season.

Andre Rison sentenced to five years probation


Though he caught that Brett Favre bomb on the second play from scrimmage in Super Bowl XXXI – a play that set the tone and helped the Green Bay Packers to their first Super Bowl Championship since 1967 – I was never a big Andre Rison fan.

My feelings about him were cemented today when I read about his sentencing in federal court of five years probation for failure to pay child support between 2008 and 2011. He was also ordered to pay $300,000 in restitution for his transgression.

To pay off the debt, he will have to pay $2,350 in monthly payments along with $1,000 to pay off the restitution.

Not being responsible enough to pay for his children says a lot about him.

My only hope is that he learns from the penalty and mans up to his responsibilities.

Sad, sad, sad.
