The opinions on what to do with the three Tennessee players charged with armed robbery are coming in fast and furious. Many are demanding strong action, like kicking the players off the team. That may or may not be a little extreme, at least before they are officially found guilty, and it's also the exact opposite of what the victim wants.

Corey Zickefoose, one of the three victims of the armed robbery attempt, doesn't believe the players should be kicked off the team:
 
"I think they should still be able to play football, regardless," he said. "Tennessee is my place. It's my football team."

"Even after they put a gun in your face, you say let them play football?" 6 News asked.

"Yeah, it's Tennessee. That's the way it is sometimes," Zickefoose said.
Now that's supporting the team (but not a ringing endorsement for tourism in Knoxville).
