Now I'm all for fun and party and things no problem right but if you know Goodell has a no tolerance law in effect to with players & coaches. Why put put yourself in this situation? you have all that money can't you hired a driver or friend to take you where ever to from?

True but isn't Goodell's reasoning for his heavy hand so to speak is to change the NFL image and take players out of the negative spotlight?

It's really doesn't get more simpler than that. A cab is not that expensive...

I usually charge my buddies. I tell them if you want a ride call me I will come get you if you are too drunk and I charge them and my GF or brother will drive their car to their dorm or apartment.

Precisely. There are close to 2,000 players in the NFL at any given time. If you took a random sample of 2,000 males between the ages of 21 and 35, I think you'd find that a decent percentage of them have had run-ins with the law. I'd venture to guess that 10% of this site's members have had DWIs/OWIs/DUIs. I seem to recall reading a summary of a study which came the same conclusion (sorry, no link).

SGG & Matty I respect your opinion & stats I really do and it is common in society, but as a NFL franchise player why risk a suspension or fine from the league now especially during the times where you have the Chris Henry, Pacman, Mike Vick soap operas going on when you could have just called a cab or a friend? Those three names alone give the NFL a bad image plus they are all pro bowl caliber players at there positions so is Lofa!!! It's common in society doesn't cut it to me!!!

I think that hits the nail on the head right there.

Once again, I have my doubts that his is a new trend, but we hear about it more now because of the internet. Similarly, the police probably don't let players get away with this sort of thing as much as they used to.

Exactly. Add in the simple fact that a typical NFL star is driving something very flashy and a little swerving and excessive speed tend to catch the passing eye of the law dogs.

Not only is it common in society but a lot of professional athletes get this idea that they are invincible. Either that or they think because they are pro athletes they are somehow above the law. Neither is true but they keep on thinking it.
