Many people have wondered why the Eagles would all of a sudden get rid of their top wide receiver DeSean Jackson. Some speculation had to do with possible affiliation with gang members. Today, Jackson openly admitted to being an associate with several members from the Our Gang crew.
Known by some as “The Little Rascals” or “Hal Roach’s Rascals,” the Our Gang group consists of notable members like Spanky, Alfalfa, Buckwheat, Froggy, and in some versions Porky.
“I apologize to the organization, the fans, and for the rest of the He-Man Woman Haters Club for keeping this a secret,” said Jackson.
When asked why he decided to finally admit to the truth Jackson said, “it was the only thing to get people to stop spreading more rumors.”
Now it’s up to the Eagles to decide whether or not to keep Jackson on the team. A noted Our Gang affiliation has the potential to weigh heavily on his personal life. After all, the original Alfalfa was killed when he was shot in the groin following an argument over $50. Jackson’s affiliation with troublemakers like this, there’s no telling if it will eventually effect his on the field performance.
