Fran Tarkenton gives his take on the issue.
I didn't see the stats anywhere but my guess is that over 80% of these arrests didn't involve a victim.
Yet I do not they are the positive role models they once were perceived as.
Heck I thought some of those guys on North Dallas Forty were out of control lol
I do recall the Joe Namath episode on the Brady Bunch ;)
I just don't really care about them(sports players) or their perceived 'role model' status. I just hate seeing my tax money wasted by the government arresting people that have harmed no one.
My step father was a sports writer(football - Raiders,Niners) through the 70's and 80's and has some great stories about many of these athletes from then. I highly doubt today's players could be perceived to be worse role models then those guys. The difference today is the 24/7 wall to wall media coverage.
