 No. The NFL has 1696

 No. The NFL has 1696 players plus another 500 or so coaches. When you have over 2000 people, you are going to have plenty of scumbags. The difference is that when you are in the NFL and get arrested it makes the national news. When the drunk down the street beats his wife/girlfriend, it only makes headlines if she dies and even then rarely more than citywide.

Statistically, NFL players are arrested less frequently than the general population.

If, if a white man puts his arm around me voluntarily, that's brotherhood. But if you - if you hold a gun on him and make him embrace me and pretend to be friendly or brotherly toward me, then that's not brotherhood, that's hypocrisy.- Malcolm X

of course, because they're all white. er...

"I have never felt comfortable around people who talk about their feelings for Jesus, or any other deity for that matter, because they are usually none too bright. . . . Or maybe 'stupid' is a better way of saying it; but I have never seen much point in getting heavy with either stupid people or Jesus freaks, just as long as they don't bother me. In a world as weird and cruel as this one we have made for ourselves, I figure anybody who can find peace and personal happiness without ripping off somebody else deserves to be left alone. They will not inherit the earth, but then neither will I. . . . And I have learned to live, as it were, with the idea that I will never find peace and happiness, either. But as long as I know there's a pretty good chance I can get my hands on either one of them every once in a while, I do the best I can between high spots."
