NFL Football Players arrested on average every seven days

 

For Saturday’s blast from the past, and whatever happened to – let’s do this one from last year-

NFL Players arrested on average every seven days

Maybe these facts represent why the NFL players find rules hard to follow and a chip on their shoulder for being arrested by the police. Maybe it’s time for the NFL to let their bad boys go for good. The last a player was arrested was six days ago.

Arrests  an interactive visualized database of National Football League player Arrests & Charges. Learn about your rival team’s history with the law, break down arrests by Player, Position, Crime and Team.

 

Here is the handy-dandy arrest chart  NFL Arrests

The average time between arrests is just seven days, while the record without an arrest is slightly more than two months, at 65 days

Players get arrested for a variety of crimes: drunk driving, drug offenses, domestic violence, assault and battery, gun violations, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, theft, burglary, rape and even murder.

The NFL virtually embraces players who abuse women. Take this report in the Chicago Tribune: “In the first round [of the 2017 draft], the Oakland Raiders drafted Gareon Conley, who has been accused of rape. In the second round, the Cincinnati Bengals selected Joe Mixon, who in a much-viewed video punches a woman so hard that she falls down unconscious. In the sixth round, the Cleveland Browns selected Caleb Brantley, who was accused of doing pretty much what Mixon did.”

No Women Ski Jumpers in upcoming Olympics

Our loss–Well, maybe when the Olympics move to Russia?

Curling is much more fun. Thats the one where they have that thingy where some guys use a couple of brooms and sweep away to some assine goal which no one understands. The women were rejected in 2006 when the International Olympic Committee (IOC) added only one event, ski cross—head-to-head downhill racing that prides itself on being chaotic. Too few ski jumpers was the reason, said the IOC. The women argued numbers: 83 competitors at the elite level from 14 countries, more women than for ski cross, bobsled, snowboard cross, luge or skeleton, according to Women’s Ski Jumping USA, nonprofit volunteers supporting the athletes.

But why would the IOC bar women ski jumpers? Women’s Ski Jumping Vice President Vic Method has a theory: “This is a big macho event in Europe. If suddenly you’ve got these little size-four girls jumping comparable distances, the men don’t look so macho anymore.” When the Vancouver ski jump opened in 2008, Lindsey Van of the U.S. out-jumped the men, setting the record of 105.5 meters on the new 95-meter jump and promising Olympic drama now denied, or at least delayed.

Men have been ski jumping since the early 1800s and were part of the first winter Olympics in 1924. The event is spectacular and scary, especially on the biggest hills. A lone skier sits on a bar atop a 215-meter hill (that’s about 705 feet high). He pushes off and speeds down the 382-foot, snow-covered surface at 64 miles an hour. Then suddenly he’s airborne, flying as far as 784 feet, 40 feet high, hitting the ground with such force that, when things go wrong, we’re reminded of that old “Wide World of Sports” footage about “the agony of defeat.”

Women—ski jumping since the 1880s and in FIS-sanctioned events since 1998—take the same risks as the men. The technical difficulty of their events is the same and their performances are comparable, but they don’t get to compete on the sport’s biggest stage, the Olympics.

CHICAGO OUT!

That didn’t take long.

“The shock of Chicago’s elimination was greater for the fact that it came in the first round. And greater for the fact that President Obama had taken valuable hours from his packed and tense political schedule to travel to Copenhagen. His legendary powers of persuasion will be said to have failed him, though in reality it will be Chicago’s bid that failed him. Nonetheless, this is a moment which allows the president’s detractors to allege waning prestige on the part of his presidency. And it will raise questions about the political advice that he is receiving.”

His wife tugged at IOC members’ heart strings by discussing her late father, who had multiple sclerosis. She recounted sitting on his lap, watching Olympians such as Carl Lewis and Nadia Comaneci compete, and how her father “taught me how to throw a ball and a mean right hook.”

“My dad would have been so proud to witness these games in Chicago,” she said.    Guess What? No one gives a………   bye bye, now you can go back to D.C. and decide what to do with our soldiers for a change.
