In response to miscricket's comment:
I heard on the news this morning that since the Superbowl...28 different NFL players have been arrested on various charges. In addition the person on the radio stated that the NFL leads all sports in number of arrests and criminal prosecutions.
Call me crazy...but I think that character should be right up there with talent when recruiting players for a team. I always thought the NBA was the thug league...I guess I will have to change that to the NFL.

Are any of the players anyone we know? Did the arrests lead to convictions? What were the players arrested for? These numbers are consistent year to year. Usually half the arrests are practice squad players. Even if most of the 28 arrests lead to convictions, which they don't, the ratio isn't bad. You could go thru major corporations and find out the same thing.
