In 2013, while Joe Flacco & the Ravens were celebrating their Super Bowl win over the 49ers, Eddie Roberson(Pictured above) decided instead of paying off a bet he had with his friend, he would just kill him. Likely reaction right?
A New Jersey man has been convicted of killing a friend over a $700 bet on the 2013 Super Bowl.
Thirty-one-year-old Eddie Roberson, of Newark, was convicted Wednesday of killing 38-year-old Talif Crowley, of Bloomfield, in February 2013.
Prosecutors say Roberson did not want to pay Crowley after losing the bet after the San Francisco 49ers lost to the Baltimore Ravens. He believed the 49ers were cheated in the 34-31 loss.
He shot Crowley six times on a street in Newark two days after the game during a confrontation.
They used some of Roberson’s 49ers gear during the trial as evidence as well:
The court also found Roberson guilty of weapons offenses. He has three prior felony convictions for drugs, guns and eluding, according to NorthJersey.com.
