I've been hoping the 49ers would draft Rashaan Evans to pair with Reuben, and maybe even get Minkah floating around as safety.

    Much like the Ravens getting Ray Rice's side of the story before the video of him folding her over like a lawn chair in the elevator.

    This ^^^^^ is highly disturbing if it turns out to be true. I question if Foster went into this kind of detail with the 49er's management. In today's climate of domestic violence and the NFL. I would be willing to bet if Foster would have said "I hit her about 8-10 times and dragged her by her hair." They (SF management) would have told him "There's the door son, don't let it hit you..."

    Good god I hope so. The victim should be thought of first in these situations but man it is sad to see someone with so much potential throw their life away like this.

    If this is all true, 'ol Rube can give up his NFL dream and probably some freedom in the process. He has nobody to blame but himself.

    Re: Reuben in trouble again...

    Seems like Foster has hurt his career greatly this off-season...and it has nothing to do with being a football player and everything about being a dang adult.
    I owe it to the people to have a signature...so here goes nothing!

    Sounds like maybe a little couch time in the prison psychiatrists office would serve him well.

    Re: Reuben in trouble again...

    What are these guys thinking when they do things like this? How could a person do this to someone who has no chance of defending themselves. Almost 50 years ago when I work at a fast food place a lady who live behind it came in and her husband had beat her. She had bruises all over her face. We called the cops and they didn't do a damn thing. Fifty years ago and I can still see her face.

    It's another version of the lure of the 'Hood'.
    Many young guys find it difficult to cut ties with childhood friends.
    A loose upbringing and violence condoned and glorified on Television play a huge part of players getting in trouble.
    In the NFL the players are visited by guys from the 'Hood'. Some of these guys are into Drugs and violence.
    Beating up women seems to be acceptable to them.
    And finally... Lots of young players can't handle sudden wealth. They begin to believe they can do what they want to do without consequences.

    Foster's hearing will be held in the Santa Clara County Superior Court in San Jose , is right next to where I work. he will appear in court again at the end of the month. you can bet the media and TV crew will be all over this when that date looms.
    the incident occurred in Los Gatos , an affluent city with a population of around 30k.

    I travel to San jose often for work time to time. We have scheduled trips out there at end of the month. I probably will need to warn my team about the media and be aware of that.

    Let's not make the mistake of assuming the charges are true as presented. He must have offered the 49ers a very different story to still be around.

    Re: Reuben in trouble again...

    I know that the 49ers (at least since the Harbaugh years) have always used a particular lawyer whenever their players are in legal trouble. I say this b/c I'd think maybe the lawyer would be able to get and pass along info the front office that would either support or not support the player's version of the events. It is my understanding that Reuben was trying to get the girlfriend out of his apartment after telling her to leave (and she refused). That is not to say the treatment she received is justified, but in the eyes of the law, it may be a mitigating circumstance.

    No matter the end result, Reuben (and other players like him) need lots of help, strong structures, and need to cut away the bad influences in his life. At this point, regardless of the actual facts, I see a lot of NFL Rolando, and I absolutely hate that for him.
