    This is what happens when you give 20 somethings millions of dollars and no supervision. The universe revolves around them and they can do no wrong.

    absolutely right about NFL players.
    But the same thing happens with pro baseball, hockey, and other sports, and they don't go out and wreak havoc everywhere like football players do.
    and there are TONS of professional baseball players here, even a lot from Spanish speaking countries that are worse than the inner cities here.

    I know NBA has a lot fewer players than NFL, but still seems to be less of the criminal element. It's really an NFL problem.

    The crazy thing is it wasn't dark, it was like 730am, and it was on a bridge. To Stallworth's defense, he couldn't swerve and miss the guy, the bridge was 2 lanes without a shoulder and there was a car next to him, some have proclaimed the guy wanted to die and jumped out in front of the car....

    But I agree and get what you're saying.

    It would seem like the first thought would be "oh look, I can afford a cab now."

    One reason why players from the other sports mentioned don't get in trouble is because they are always on the move job wise. Baseball, Basketball, and Hockey players play so many games that they honestly have no time to get into trouble. NFL players have so much time during the entire year to be bored and do something really idiotic.

    Some Baseball players do dumb **** all the time with the juicing, and IIRC they actually have more domestic violence cases than the NFL.

    Look at Josh Hamilton, dude can't lay off the devil's sugar.

    But for some reason he isn't viewed as a thug, instead "he has a problem" and needs everyones "help, love and support."

    Yet if a pro football player gets caught smoking weed he is consider a bane on society.

    I don't know much about baseball.. but in Hockey, I can think of two cases from the last year or so. Slava Voynov of the kings kicked the crap out of his girlfriend.. he still hasn't seen the ice since.. and Semyon Varlamov did the same thing, he's still playing, but his reputation is down the tubes forever. I guess it's a difference in sports as well. Hockey fans/NHL/the teams expect their players to behave themselves.

    I guess baseball fans are delusional enough to believe that some of their scummier players are still good guys, but football lost that illusion long ago. Football players are still shooting people, getting shot/shot at, and their friends are getting killed with them in the car. Domestic violence is a scourge on society, but having your players directly involved with gun violence every year is horrible. If the baseball players were stupid enough to get caught on camera like Ray Rice, people would hate them just as much. Football players have become so scummy that it's hard to give any of them the benefit of the doubt.


    I'm sure all the major sports combined couldn't touch all of the murder situations in the NFL. Football has no minor league, and still has so many crime issues. just from 32 pro teams' worth, and many of the troublemakers are stars. in the past 10 years alone, 3 players involved with the Titans organization have either been the victim of, or behind a shooting. many of the notables.. Rolle, Hopkins, McNair, Bulluck, Young, CJ, Britt, Pacman, Henry, Rob Reynolds(not that he is notable), Lewan, Mettenberger all have been a part of some sort of scandal.
