Former Patritots and Raiders lineman Brian Holloway is currently embroiled in a very weird story involving hundreds of teens and red solo cups trashing his vacation home for a huge Labor Day party. And that's just the tip of this giant iceberg of weirdness. Hollowday has taken it upon himself to create a very bizarre, rambling website, helpmesave300.com, and collect social media records of who was at the party trashing the house. Holloway's website also includes his efforts to try to "save" the teenagers and makes many references to the scary, scary media invading the lives of the reckless teens and their families. This has caused parents of those partiers to threaten a lawsuit against Holloway, confirming entitled, lazy, awful parenting is one of the biggest problems this country has.
Holloway himself isn't without questions. TMZ reported he owes over $1 million dollars on the home and it was in foreclosure and disrepair. Furthermore, neighbors are suspicious over Holloway trying to raise money to fix the home. As the story has gotten more attention nationwide, Holloway has been making the media rounds to tell his story. This weekend he was on Fox & Friends and took part in a truly bizarre interview.
Holloway appears in a New England Patriots jersey, not one he played in mind you, but a modern edition. He then shouts random things to his grandchildren at the beginning of the interview including Ninja Turtle references. As the interview progresses, it includes technical difficulties, the interview being cut off with Holloway mid-sentence, and Holloway throwing out random accusations about his neighbor being a wifebeater.
What the %$#*!! was that???
UPDATE: In more weirdness, Holloway posted his own version of the Fox News interview from behind the scenes. It only features his answers and the portion that Fox News cut out. It's titled "Don't Bow Down! The interview that FOX Would NOT SHOW!!!" (H/T thesteveking)
Taping his own nationally televised interview and putting it on YouTube? I've never seen that happen before. Again... What the %$#*!! was that???
@awfulannouncing concussions are a bitch huh
It gets even more interesting when you consider the other details:
Holloway's son was in stephentown on 8-19 according to his Instagram: brianhollowayjr He posted a photo admiring the graffiti at the house - 2 weeks before the accused party. he and his sister admit that they and their friends did the graffiti in the photos which Holloway is now using to raise funds and accuse the teens of doing.
Furthermore, a 1997 article in the NYTimes shows that Holloway himself may have vandalized the house to remove his ex-wife:
Finally, the times union reports that Brian Holloway Jr may have actually arranged the party himself:
@DavidPetroff what in the world?!
@awfulannouncing I know brian - he does a lot for his community, always has - but I thought it was odd w PayPal on that site.....
@awfulannouncing This has become really odd.
Oh please, that NYTimes article is 16 years old and may not have any relevance to the present condition of the house. The teens who trashed and vandalized the residence are still undisciplined savages with irresponsible parents. Just read some of those teens' twitter messages.
Having said that, I think Brian Holloway needs to have a heart-to-heart with Brian Jr. Some of those teens were friends of Brian Jr. and had been previous invited by him to several smaller parties or get-togethers at the vacant home which also involved scribbling graffiti on an out-building. By those previous parties, Brian Jr. may have unwittingly and unintentionally set the stage for the blow-out bash over Labor Day weekend since it was already a known hang-out venue for teens. Apparently many people also have some doubts about Brian Jr. since very few are contributing to that "go fund me" site he set up.
Those graffiti pics are from their barn not their house. The Holloway kids and their friends used to hang out in there. At the party more graffiti was added including crude and vulgar language which was not there before.
