Athletic Shenanigans

[click to enlarge]

I love the game, but it's obvious that some of the players need to exercise control of their behavior or they should lose their jobs.

Check out these stats:

NFL Arrests Database

Behave or get out.

Wow, that's a lot of misbehaving. A. Lot.

Have a fabulous day. ☺

I think this database is just from 2000. There's been a lot of misbehaving for a long, long time.

Bad behavior stops when the money dries up.

I love the game too but I do think the players should be held to a higher standard than the rest of us.

There are so many selfless players who are good role models and are overlooked.

Jan: I agree. They get paid lots of money for their talent and they should be grateful for that.

This overpaid talent doesn't mean they can break the laws that the rest of us must obey.

When you treat athletes like gods why shouldn't they begin to believe they are?

Cube - I agree with you on that one. These athletes need to improve their behavior or get out of the game. They give the sport a bad name.

Looking at the list I even see a few repeat offenders just months apart. Sheesh!
You can't go into a field like this and not be aware that the whole world is watching you.Some famous sports figure (basketball?) made a comment that they did not ask to be anyone's role model.
Yes he did, when he signed that dotted line.

Granny Annie: They've been privileged since the moment someone noticed their talent.
