What is wrong with these male athletes getting stopped and arrested for making boneheaded choices with their lives and the lives of others? Do they realize how stupid that they look doing things such as getting DUI’s, resisting arrest, altercations outside of clubs, and then they want to issue halfhearted unsympathetic apologies to the team and fans. Grow up for once and be a responsible adult who knows right from wrong regardless of how much money you make, cars you drive, or houses you live in.
It seems as the more money you make your logical and thinking process becomes reduces. If you want to go out to celebrate on a night on the town and plan on drinking be a responsible adult and call a cab, or since you have money to blow get a driver, or here is a better idea invite those so-called friends you surround yourself with over to your house to drink; therefore, you won’t have to issue an apology for a DUI that could have been avoided.
Just because you can make some catches, or break some tackles, sack the quarterback, and people call you a superstar does not for one minute make you above the law because you are not. Once you sign your name on the line, your life and every move you make is put under the microscope with the cops and media. These pro athletes have to make better judgment calls and surround themselves with people looking out for their well being not with people trying to come up off them that disappear when they are at the bottom. Not everybody you grow up with is there for you and has your best interest at heart.
These kids growing up look up to these players as role models and see what they are doing and want to mock these players, but also these same people have kids who will one day hear how their father was a good player, but his off the field problems stopped him from being a great athlete. You give some of these boys trying to be men millions of dollars and they lose their minds. They have to realize and learn. As the Bible says, “As a child I did childish things, but as a man i ceased my childish ways and behavior.”
