    You quoted the whole statement not just that part. So re-read what you quoted re-read what I responded with use some analytical abilities, and you will find your answer.

    Hyde who everyone wants was also accused of assault. Mettenberger (spelling?) plead guilty to sexual assault. Two prospects a lot of posters want on this team.

    You said (direct quote): "Truth is majority of [NFL players] are have [sic] troubled backgrounds"

    Am I misquoting you somehow? If so, I apologize.

    If not, that's a really stupid thing to say.

    It all goes together most of these kids are coming from the hood, from broken families, etc. Their whole life is football they know they aren't finishing their degree, that's why they are leaving college early because they won't make it through. Don't quote pieces of a sentence read the whole thing.

    Let me be political correct most nfl prospects come from "inner-city schools".

    There's no "whole thing" that makes that not a stupid statement. You are saying stupid things.

    You are generalizing in a ridiculous way. "The majority." Your exact words. And it's not close to correct. You are flat-out wrong. Most NFL players come from normal backgrounds.

    Yes, a lot of NFL players get arrested. We hear about it because they are NFL players and, thus, famous. However, the statistics clearly demonstrate that it's a small minority of players who get into legal trouble and it's actually fewer arrests per capita than the general population.

    Here's an academic paper that studied this exact matter: http://www.stat.duke.edu/~dalene/chance/chanceweb/123.nflviol.pdf

    Read it and then we can talk. You'll see that it convincingly demonstrates that you are incorrect.

    Or if reading isn't your thing, I can point you to the relevant passages.

    That is an unquantifiable statement that is likely false.

    Haha clearly you can not read, not once did I say a majority of nfl prospects are criminals. I said they come troubled backgrounds, with a majority of them coming from inner city schools, so go ahead and prove me wrong.

    You said the majority of NFL players come from troubled backgrounds and wouldn't make it through college. Your words. And those statements aren't true. It fits some players, certainly, but not the majority. I've done more than enough proving.
