    Angry

    Ok, we lived thru the Moss era, embarrassed by his childish banters and interviews.

    Gotten more than our share of DWI's under Denny Green's team.

    Now, Kelly Campbell, who probably just blew a chance to make a name for himself in the NFL, got himself busted in Atlanta on weapons and drug charges.

    And that's just some of what happens to athletes in this state. There's a lot more. Then across the country there are countless others who can't control themselves.

    Can you name a few more jackasses?

    What the hell is wrong with these guys?

    I think it's the NBA that has a required 3 day class for all incoming rookies. They teach them the pitfalls to look out for and give them the grim facts about how short their careers can be. This has helped tremendously with them but it would help for it to be reinforced in the 2nd and 3rd year as well.
    All pro sports need to adopt this approach. As young as middle school now great athletes are coddled and don't learn accountability for their actions.

    they don't appreciate what they have. i worked with a guy who was a laborer for Power Construction. he was a college star and i think he might have played a little pro ball. i don't recall his name but he was so tall 6'-6"+ with his hardhat on that he had to duckto get throught the doorways. he was pushing a broom......so apparently college didn't take.

    Bertuzzi, Healey, Horton. Pro-sports are full of people who have been taught by family, friends, coaches, agents and managers they can't do anything wrong. Most of these other people live off the proceeds of Mr. Perfect. Some, but not all, of these athletes seem to get lost in the business end of things and forget the special privileges they have.

    Talking Re : Overpaid Athletes

    In the 80's I worked for old man Trump, and in one building the "Stars" of St.Johns lived. Half of them talked like they had paper @ssholes. Doorman told me that as long as they could play, the college had them covered. What do you mean? He said the college provided them with people to do their school work etc. So a lot of them are really dumber than a slice of burnt toast. No wonder when they get to the pro's they act like spoiled kids, they are.
