This might be moved to another forum - sorry if it's in the wrong place. Specifically we have been discussing Josh Brent's DUI conviction, but it's part of the larger problem of DUI. Zooming out to people in sports and entertainment, way too many of them just can't deal with things. The Beibers and Lohans are constantly in trouble - jocks are constantly in trouble with girlfriends or money. Yes, part of me is infuriated with what he did, but now I'm into why he insisted upon his path and why so many others past and present insist on doing the same. Part of the problem with today's jocks is they get too much of a royal treatment - er. actual royal family members probably are expected to be more responsible. Jocks starting from high school can get minor traffic tickets, etc dismissed and just do it again and again...they don't have to exercise good judgement or humility like the other 99%, knowing they will get what they want in the end. After years of this, they enter the NFL living in a bubble, not knowing how to control substances or money. Maybe the league already does, but rookies should have an orientation that their career might last three years, so control your life and money very wisely. If you get into trouble - you are on your own. The tragedy of life is some will knowingly/unknowingly walk off the proverbial cliff, but can something be done to reduce that number? It's pretty high.
