A possible NFL career for O.J. Simpson included stops with the Buffalo Bills and the San Francisco 49ers. Among his possible accolades are NFL Most Valuable Player, NFL Offensive Player of the Year, and five trips to the Pro Bowl. His off-field history and the numerous scandals in which he has been embroiled have overshadowed his on-field accomplishments.
Among his many infractions, two stand out as particularly serious. In 2007, there was a robbery that was the most recent incident. He was convicted of armed robbery of a hotel room for stolen mementos. In 2008, he received a term of 33 years in jail, with the possibility of parole in 2017.
Although he did serve time for this offense, it is not for this that he is most notorious. Of course, we’re referring to the murder trial of O.J. Simpson. Accusations against Simpson center on the deaths of his ex-wife Nicole Brown and her friend Ron Goldman. Without getting into the specifics of the case or the famed automobile pursuit, he was found not guilty of murder in the criminal trial that followed the murder.
On the other hand, he was convicted guilty of wrongful killing, battery on Goldman, and battery on Brown in a civil trial. In order to escape paying the $33.5 million in damages a California court ordered him to pay, Simpson moved to Miami. The Goldman family was able to raise some money by auctioning off his possessions, including his Heisman Trophy. His NFL pension was protected, however.

What they did accomplish, however, was to obtain the rights to a book that O.J. Simpson had written in a separate judgment several years later. The Goldman family successfully petitioned the court to have the profits from the book sales of “If I Did It,” which was published in 2007, be used to pay the damages from the earlier judgment.

O.J. Simpson himself Talks About the Murder
Written as a work of fiction, the book imagines a world in which O.J. Simpson is responsible for the deaths of Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman. Accounts of Simpson’s involvement in the project vary widely, but nonetheless, it was a particularly distasteful venture.
Screenwriter Pablo Fenjves alleges that O.J. Simpson actively participated in the writing of the book and that he ghostwrote it. Simpson’s ex-manager Norman Pardo claims that Simpson was not involved and merely lent his name to the book so that he could cash in on the book’s $600,000 advance. Although Simpson presents the book’s contents as hypothetical, he is the author and the book is his property under the law.
After the Goldman family won the legal right to make money off the book, they made a few changes to it in order to maximize their profit. They couldn’t change the title without breaking the law, so they added “Confessions of the Killer” as a subtitle. Additionally, they shrank the word “If” in the title to the point where the letter “I” completely obscures it. This means that the title might just as easily be “I Did It: Confessions of the Killer” They also couldn’t change the book’s original material, but they may provide their own opinion on it. This is exactly what the Goldman family did with their insider opinion, “He Did It.”
Fun Fact: the Goldman family was awarded the rights to OJ Simpson’s book ‘If I Did It’. After winning, the family changed the books image and greatly reduced the size of “If” to make it appear as if the title is “I Did It”.

The book’s popularity has likely increased due to the case’s prevalence in the public consciousness. Although it bears Simpson’s name, the book was likely ghostwritten by someone person. Instead, O.J. Simpson wrote a book titled “I Want to Tell You: My Response to Your Letters, Your Messages, and Your Questions” and released it in 1995. Writing this while he awaited his criminal trial, Simpson maintained his innocence.

Reading conflicting reports will get you nowhere in solving this mystery. These two volumes won’t sway anyone’s judgment of Simpson or his scandals. Presently, he was judged civilly accountable for wrongful death despite being cleared of criminal murder charges; this seems to be a contradiction in the law.
