Lawrence Taylor made a living by beating up on quarterbacks in the NFL, but his personal life has been a mess for as long as anyone can remember. Yet despite all of his problems with the law, there does not seem to be any remorse or hope that he will learn from his mistakes.
The Hall of Famer finally spoke publicly about his 2010 arrest for having sex with a 16-year-old girl, which led to him being sentenced to six years of probation, on Showtime's Inside the NFL, which aired on Wednesday.
The most telling response that he gave in the clip is when Cris Collinsworth asked, "What makes you think you have changed?" Taylor then responded by saying, "Think I changed what?"
Will Lawrence Taylor Be Able To Stay Out Of Trouble?
Normal people sit in a police station and wonder what is happening and why they are there. Taylor wonders when he will get out so he can go play golf. He didn't sound remorseful or regret anything that happened.
When Taylor actually takes responsibility for his actions, and not just in this most recent case, but everything he has done, then we will know that he is a changed man.
He has yet to do that, and there is no reason to think that he ever will because he lives his life the way that he played football: Fast, furious, relentless and hard-hitting.
