Lawrence Taylor is hands down the best NFL linebacker to ever play the game of football and one of the most recognized sports figures of all time. Unfortunately his past athletic ability could never make up for his lack of legal and financial knowledge.

To give you a quick rundown of his legal problems in 1996 and 2009 he was arrested for leaving the scene of car accidents and not too long ago he was charged with felony third-degree statutory rape for sleeping with a 16-year-old prostitute.

Now the desperate, strapped for cash, Hall of Famer has been forced to auction off his 1991 Super Bowl ring.

While a few people felt bad, the majority of tweeps felt like Lawrence Taylor is getting what he deserves. It’s not like he’s lived his life like a Saint or anything…

Other Tweeters just turned the story into one big joke.
