One possible problem with that, as s**tty as it may be, is when it comes to contract time teams could use it against the players. If the players in question used the taxi service multiple times the team could spread word that so and so is an alcoholic and teams around the league would be less inclined to give him a big money contract.
Maybe the players union could furnish their own driving service so that no teams find out?
i can see this being an issue. but the player can flip it and say he was just being overly cautious so there would be no temptation to drive while drunk.
