TEARRIUS GEORGE RETIRES, FACING CHARGES

International defensive lineman Tearrius George is retiring from the Canadian Football League, the Saskatchewan Roughriders announced today.
 
"I am stepping away from the game to focus on a personal issue," stated Tearrius George. "I would ask for people to respect my family's privacy during this time."
 
Chris Jones, Vice-President of Football Operations, General Manager and Head Coach, said: "Through speaking with Tearrius, we were made aware that he was involved in an incident that has become a police matter. He subsequently informed us he has decided to retire."  
 
As the police matter involving Tearrius is before the courts, the Riders will have no further comment on it.

Hate to see a very good players career end like this. Not knowing the story it's hard to make a judgment. Hopefully they can work out whatever problems they have and fix their relationship, which is more important than a short career as a football player.

Watch all the Nut Jobs come out of the woodwork now. They will find away to blame Jones for this to.

Your right Keith. Sad to see him go this way. Hope he can work out his issues.

Such a bad situation. Unfortunately we've heard it all too often with athletes.

No big loss there. T.George played terribly last season in my opinion

Name 1 player that did play well in the 3-15 season?

That red headed kid. He had long hair at one time. His name escapes to the tip of the tongue. He's a good player, not spectacular, but good.

Seems to happen too often with everyone in society today (athletes or not)

Looks like the Riders dont fool around with the code of conduct stuff. Probably was asked to retire.

Kory Sheets did the same thing, but Rider fans still love him so come back Tearrius!

To the last Anon... Why be such an Azz Pole!
Korey Sheets was aquitted by the courts.
If Terrius is guilty we will dump him in a second.
You remind me of the lynch mob. Where a person was tarred and feathered before he even got a trial
So go back to Edmonton or Winnipeg or were ever you crawled out from under.

He did nothing wrong and there was no need to post this on a sports blog. It was done for blog hits and attention. The real story will come out in court.
