Define "all the time"? I don't think a lawyerless exchange with law enforcement is high on the priority list of most NFL players who are hit with DUI, gun possession, weed possession, domestic violence, and so on. I think the general mentality is "I'm entitled, where's the damage control."
I'm still waiting for Crabtree's statement about his pre superbowl threesome. Any thought's or feelings of professional responsibility he would care to share with the public/coaches? Didn't think so. I never heard any public statement from coaching staff or fo that he discussed it with them and evaluated his professional,
conduct. I am using this as an example, not just picking on Crab. My impression is this sort of reaction is s.o.p. in the NFL.
Or, what's that guys name for the Colts -- get's bagged in a car with weed and firearms and the first instinct, apparantly, is to scram. That's not my definition of taking responsibility. Pretty adolescent.
But that's just me. Thanks for making this personal though. You know it's all about Brooksie sweeping my wife of 30 years off her feet.
