I really don't get it.
In most sports in most countries your career is rightly over if you commit certain crimes.
But not in the good old NFL !
It seems players can rape, beat women, abuse children, fight dogs ... and they will not only be allowed to play but they will have an army of fans wearing their names on their shirts and cheering them on.
The abuse and arrogant attitudes seem to exist at all levels - it seems like there is an endless feed of news stories where some high-school or college football players have abused or raped girls and they end up being allowed back to play and people rallying round as though *they* are the victims.
Surely, whatever someone's skills as an athlete are, there are some things that simply can't be excused?
Or is winning truly 'everything' and it doesn't matter the cost?
How could you even play alongside some of these people and not want to just beat the crap out of them?
