Okay we have heard over and over what happened from one mans lips, and lip service is what i personally believe he is giving!
I feel in my heart as a big guy with no quit in my heart, that they would have survived out there in the sea longer than this punk kid. Nick Schuyler has told nothing to the families, no last words from the players, nothing, nada, nyet, zilch, zero, zip. Yet now he has a book one year after this tragic event.
And to top it all off he has all this gear on when they rescued him and comes in with both slippers still on his feet, damn those things stayed on, or what the hell were they made of, “Gold”?
Go ahead and call me anything you like, but the simple fact of the matter is, we need many more answers from Mr. Schuyler, which obviously appears it will never happen, to this day no police questioning, just the plain and simple fact they bought his lame ass story and now he’s selling a book to profit of another man’s misery?
Low life piece of crap is what i call him!
On February 28, 2009, four friends set sail for a day of fishing off the Florida coast. When they didn’t return that night, the Coast Guard launched a massive search effort early the next morning despite stormy weather and violent waves. Forty-three hours later, the boat was found—but three lives had been lost. Only one man, Nick Schuyler, lived to tell the harrowing tale of his friends’ fight for life.
Nick, a personal trainer, had befriended NFL players Corey Smith and Marquis Cooper at his gym. The three quickly bonded over intense workouts and lifting weights. Corey, the youngest of six children, had just finished his season with the Detroit Lions.
Marquis was married with a 3-year-old daughter he adored. An experienced fisherman, he often took friends out on his 21-foot boat. Set to leave for an off-season training camp with the Oakland Raiders, Marquis wanted to take his friends on one last trip to his favorite fishing spot, 70 miles off the Florida coast in the Gulf of Mexico.
When another friend dropped out of the trip at the last minute, Nick invited his best friend, Will Bleakley, to join them. Inseparable since their days playing football at the University of South Florida, Nick was excited to have Will along for the day.
No one could have foreseen the tragedy that lurked ahead.
