27 NFL players have been arrested since the Super Bowl. Yes, that number is outrageous, and not only does the NFL need to do something (banning people) but the players need to take responsibility. Its not THAT hard to not get arrested during the offseason. If I was commissioner, I would make it clear that anyone caught with an illegal firearm, or drugs is done with the NFL. If these guys worked at Walmart they would be in the unemployment line. Again, it isn't hard to follow these simple rules that normal citizens do. This is ridiculous.
However with that being said, I am sick and tired of "fans" and people labeling the players of the NFL (and NBA..hmm wonder why) as "thugs". 27 players have been arrested this offseason. Right now every team has 90 men on the roster, but cut it to the regular 53 man roster, and 53 times 32 equals 1696. 27 of 1696 is 1.5%, approximately. People continue to label entire groups of people, or organizations as something, when its almost never the case. Like I said, 27 millionaires getting arrested is ridiculous, but we have to stop condemning the entire league for the actions of a few. This applies to every aspect of life.
And with that being said, Aaron Hernandez needs to be a prime example of what not to do when you "make it". When I went to college I stopped talking to my thug friends from High School. It wasn't hard. The truth is I would rather be a cornball brother, instead of washing draws in a state prison. I don't understand how everybody doesn't come to that same conclusion, but..whatever.
