Cowboys death, arrest serve as another sad reminder that DUIs are a major problem for NFL

For the second consecutive week, the NFL was broadsided with a tragedy – a preventable, painful tragedy.

On Saturday, Dallas Cowboys nose tackle Josh Brent was charged with intoxication manslaughter after what Irving, Texas, police described as a high-speed early morning crash on State Highway 114 that caused his car to flip at least once before winding up on a service road.

His victim was teammate Jerry Brown, a 25-year-old linebacker from St. Louis. Brown, a passenger at the time of the crash, was a teammate of Brent's at the University of Illinois.
This comes on the heels of Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher committing suicide in front of his coach and general manager last Saturday after murdering Kasandra Perkins, his girlfriend and the mother of his 3-month-old daughter.

Drunk Driving kills thousands upon thousands of people every year. Marijuana has never directly killed anyone in it's history...

Guess which one is legal in ALL states? Now, i'm not a smoker. I just see some hypocrisy here.

I read a statistic today that 27% of the NFL players that have found legal trouble comes from alcohol and of drugs. Just thought I would share.

what's sad is that the NFL has a program in place to help drunk players get FREE rides home (or to wherever they need to go), and apparently very few players utilize the program.

That is a complete a utter shame.
