Commissioner Roger Goodell’s tough player conduct policy was supposed to stop NFL players from getting into any trouble … right?
Well it’s another day, and another arrest for the NFL. This time it’s Colts safety Joe Lefeged, who the Indianapolis Star said was chased down by police and will be arraigned on multiple gun-related offenses.
This week has included Aaron Hernandez getting charged with murder, Ausar Walcott being charged with attempted murder, and Josh Brent failing a second drug test while out on bond on an intoxicated manslaughter charge. Now here comes the Indianapolis Star news that Lefeged and a friend were driving in Washington, D.C., and when police attempted to pull over their car, a chase ensued. The men were arrested after the chase and there was a handgun was found in the car.
29 NFL players just this off-season alone.
Do you think that NFL players, (or any other major sports athlete for that matter) really truly get it? Many have achieved the highest pinnacles of success in their sports, and are compensated handsomely for simply playing a game. 30 million, 40 million, 50 million dollar contracts for catching, hitting, throwing, or shooting a ball! How come so many simply throw it all away? Is it generational? Do our young athletes today just feel their “privileged”, and now because they have some money they can’t be touched?
I’ll tell you this shit straight up…If someone presented me with a 40 million dollar contract, endorsements, and all the rest of the perks that come along with being a professional athlete…I’D CHANGE MY FUCKING NUMBER IN A MINUTE!!! PACK THE SHIT, AND BE ON SOME TROPICAL ISLAND SOMEWHERE MAKING SURE THAT MONEY WILL LAST A LIFTIME…I damn sure wouldn’t be riding around with “the fellas”…especially if hanging with “the fellas” could possibly fuck my shit up, and all I’ve worked to achieve. There would be no “posse”, no “entourage”, no 6 cars (for what?), no 10 bedroom house (again, for what?)
It just depresses the hell out of me that so many are given the world, and blow it!
Allen Iverson — who earned $154 million in salary is now BROKE! Need I say more.

I will get a lot of modern feminists putting their two cents in on this but after hearing a story this morning I have to say something.
Parents, particularly moms, stop telling your girls they can do what the boys do! They can’t otherwise God would have made us all men. Read the storylines lately, teenage girl is fighting to play on the boys’ football team again, four year old girl wants hair cut like boy, girls don’t feel right in her own body wants sex change. What the hell! How does a five year old know that? Because their little mommies are telling them it’s ok to be a male. Let them be a tomboy, hell I was but stop telling them to purposely do what males do.
There are a lot of women who are purposely put into the male role, particularly single mothers. I don’t like playing mama and daddy so I don’t understand how any woman wants to be a male and woman by choice.
Let me explain further. I can do things men can do but I don’t broadcast it to every man I see. A man wants to believe he can be your superman, that he can be needed in your life. If he believes he can’t fulfill that guess what he’s out then you’re really going to be in the male role. A man is attracted to an independent woman but they just don’t wanna hear you scream out well I can do that better than you every two seconds. Plan on being alone if you adopt this mentality but still want to be married later on in life.
Mamas tell your daughters they can accomplish what they want, don’t add that male aspect to it. I believe it confuses our little girls. They want to play football, start a girl’s football league or do it in the streets like I did. They want a lil’ boy’s haircut – cool but I refuse to let you have a sex change and pump you up with hormones at three! You are setting your girls up who do eventually want to marry!
I do call myself a feminist and I know there are strong opinionated women who have something to say so let it loose!
Peace and luv!

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Former NFL star Chad Johnson was so close to resolving his legal trouble in court Monday. Johnson was in court for violating probation in a domestic violence case involving his ex-wife. They were about to reach a plea deal when Johnson gave his attorney a playful, “good game” slap on the butt.
That behavior might be OK in the locker room but Broward County judge Kathleen McHugh was not pleased about it in the courtroom. The former NFL star’s attorney apologized for his client’s inappropriate behavior, but it was too little too late for the judge. Now you might think Chad’s attorney was a woman…but in fact he’s a man!
She sentenced Johnson to 30 days in jail and tacked on an extra three months of probation.
Want to be playful, Chad Johnson? Be playful with your kids. Be playful with the mother of your kids. Don’t be playful with a judge who oversees cases of domestic violence…Ya think! This is not a reality show!
Do you think Mr, Ocho Cinco got a fair shake from this judge?
