It’s been more than 20 years since the former NFL running back and Heisman Trophy winner O.J. Simpson was found not guilty of a double-murder at the L.A. Superior Courthouse.

Conflict with the law didn’t end after Simpson was found not guilty of a double murder. He was incarcerated in 2008 for kidnapping and armed robbery. Simpson was freed Thursday on parole from a Las Vegas medium security prison. And perhaps the most interesting thing about Simpson's story is the public's continuing fascination over his career, trial and famous Bronco chase.

So given Simpson’s release, has your opinion of him changed? Are you more or less sympathetic to him now than during the 1995 trial? And why is Simpson's story so gripping after all these years?
