Players arrested since Lockout started

It’s no surprise that some NFL players love trouble but it’s worse with this lockout. Some players need the supervision to stay out of trouble, which I think is ridiculous considering they are all grown men.

So let’s look at the list shall we:

  • Louis Murphy WR Raiders
    - On April 3, Murphy was arrested for unlabeled Viagra pills and resisting arrested. Leave it to a Raider to get arrest for Viagra!
  • Alex Magee DE Bucs
    - On May 9, Magee was arrested for possession of marijuana and driving with an expired tag .
  • Antwan Applewhite LB Chargers
    - On May 6, Applewhite was arrested for suspicion of DUI
  • Kenny Britt WR Titans
    - On April 12 ,Britt was arrested on multiple charges after a police chase. Britt was charged with lying to an officer, eluding an officer and  obstructing governmental function.  Hell of a run Kenny!
  • Mike Vrabel LB Chiefs
    - On April 4, Vrabel was arrested for theft at an Indian casino. I thought football players had a lot of money? Why steal ?
  • Jason Peters OT Eagles
    - On March 26, Peters was arrested  and charged with violating the city’s loud music policy and resisting arrest. Really? Music being too loud ? Cmon’ Man!
  • Mario Henderson OL Raiders
    -On March 17, Henderson was stopped for his music being too loud and they end up finding a gun in his car, which he didn’t have a permit for. THAT’S TWO DUMB RAIDERS SO FAR?
  • William Moore S Falcons
    - On April 19,  Moore was arrested and charged with speeding, driving with a suspended license and failure to appear in court.
  • Bryan McCann CB Cowboys
    - On March 19, McCann was arrested and charged with public intoxication
  • Chris Cook CB Vikings
    - On March 12, Cook was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of brandishing a firearm

    Don’t these idiots know that fans look up to them. My friend is an older gentlemen and he use to watch baseball on black and white tv’s when he was a kid. Well this one time a player threw the bat, well his parents shut the tv off and told him he wouldn’t be watching anymore of that.

    I guess my point is this, society has become crazy. Violence and bad behavior have become a must on television and it’s sad. Players are grown men, as you’ve mentioned, and they are role models. So they need to step up their game(no pun intended)and when my son grows up, he will hear my harsh words for irresponsible and ill behaviored people and players.

    With that said, some people need to be behind bars in a cage because they are animals and can’t act appropriatly in public. Players please don’t spoil the rest of the apples, just leave, you get paid enough to act like role models, so do it.
