    well, the problem there is kids shouldnt look up to athletes. tell them to look up to the real heroes in this country like fire fighters.

    zo is a variant of zoo, and ology is the studying. so it's zoology. my zoology teacher was very anal about people saying zoo-ology.

    In the first place, it is an arrest, not a conviction.

    Second, DUI is one of those special little crimes in which we put people in jail and fine them money, and embarass them by making them rake leaves like Boy George, and we do this even when we can't point to a victim.

    Any of us might lose our minds, snap and go on a murderous rampage, but that is not a just reason to go ahead and punish us for what might happen. It is punishment for bad things that didn't happen, but might have.

    Keeping impaired drivers off the road is a good thing, whether they are impaired by drink, OTC meds, or lack of sleep. Putting people in jail because they were impaired but managed to not hurt anyone is just silly.

    Fisher ends the OTA with the "stay outta trouble" speech. Less than 24 hours later, dude is in the news.

    We'll see is Fisher meant business with his "no tolerance" policy.

    I'm no expert on American labour laws and regulation, but unless you're a chauffeur and got caught DUI'ing in the company car, I would say there's grounds for a wrongful termination suit.

    Over here you certainly couldn't fire someone for getting a DUI, speeding, disorderly conduct etc. (unless directly tied to your work).

    As far as I know, he hasn't signed a contract with the Titans as of yet. But many contracts contain certain conduct which can lead to termination. Also, Tennessee is an "At Will" state (can be terminated at any time, and for any reason).

    I doubt there would be any legal issues if the Titans decide to release him.
