Former NFL player found to be illiterate when asked to read court documents
quote:

Judge Martin asked Brooks how he went to Auburn University when he can barely read or write. “Didn't have to go to class," Brooks said.

Article from 1999. But is relevant because Brooks played for Auburn.

It was a bull shite attempt to get out of Child support non-payment. I had a class with him in College, he wasn’t stupid.

It blows my mind that there are people in this world living life who cant do basic reading.

That said, this is some bull shite lol.

Brooks played with William Andrews and Joe Cribbs

11 Pro Bowls between those three

Brooks 4x with the Bengals
Andrews 4x with the Falcons
Cribbs 3x with the Bills

He wasn't really illiterate. We all know that was a lie to skate child support. But he was, in fact, pretty damn stupid.

No, just stating facts. The ironic part was the class was Basic Aerodynamics , and half the class was comprised of athletes. It was during the Barfield days and the acting AD at that time was the Dean of the School of Aerospace Engineering. It was a basic class, but it wasn’t a crip course by any means. Amazing how every athlete passed, wink, wink.

One of us wouldn't be perjuring themselves if they had to testify these facts in court.

James Brooks was almost as stupid as David Iron's and his puppet. Brooks, Irons, and his puppet were all illiterate and your stupid.

I don't even think you are an Auburn fan.

There is an entire generation here now, in America, who cannot write in cursive. For that matter many are incapable of simple hand written block letter communication in a legible manner.

There are estimated to be over 80 million, here in America, who cannot string together a coherent hand written English sentence on paper, much less a paragraph,
