I don't follow professional sports so, most of the time I skip anything in the news about the teams, or whatever jackass stunt someone on one them pulled that made the news. I couldn't help notice two stories were running today. The first one that caught my eye was titled: Cowboys Mull Device to Stop Drunk Drivers. Because I live in the Cowboy state, I thought this might be some lame brain scheme someone in Cheyenne came up with to line their corrupt little pockets at tax payer expense. I was surprised to learn that the article was really about the Dallas Cowboys trying to come up with some method of keeping their players from driving drunk and wrecking their expensive sports cars.
The second article was ‘At Least Seven’ NFL Players Turn In Guns. Apparently there is a brewhaha going on about some Football player that shot someone and now everyone in the NFL is supposed to feel bad about owing guns. I Googled "percentage of nfl players with felonies" which interestingly enough came up as an auto fill as I typed the query. However, I wasn't able to get anything resembling a reliable answer to the question in less than 10 mins of searching, I gave up.
A couple of thoughts: First if you're an NFL player, or just a member of the general public who wants to give up his gun(s), shoot me an email. I promise that I will find your gun a loving home that will care for it and appreciate it for what it is. Second, the average pay for NFL players is north of $750,000/year, you'd think for that kind of money they could hire adults that are capable of making mature decisions about what they own, how they live and what choices they make, without burdening anyone else with their existence.
