There's no social life, no social networking. All the people who have something going on leave Cleveland. So Cleveland has nothing, and I came in there with a New York-type of essence. So what? That was the attitude I came in with. Like, this is who I am. They didn't like the flash." Or the fact that you sucked. Either way. (Pro Football Talk)

— Roderick Davie will be the seventh person put to death by the state of Ohio this year. (
