Backup punter accused of stabbing starter in leg – College football – Thugs in Sports

 Too often we see stories like this and they make me wonder if there are really more thugs in sports, or do we just hear about them more?  I have the feeling that there are simply more thugs in sports.  Perhaps it’s because of the hero-worship they get; the little perks that come with being an athlete in the limelight.

Or maybe there are just more narcissists in sports – and they honestly believe they are above the law.

I think pro sports could do a lot to change this – like maybe not allow felons to play the game.  Put it in their contract that they get fired if they get convicted of a felony.  Period.  Go lay carpet somewhere, because you won’t be playing football anymore, thug!

One of the reasons I am a San Antonio Spurs fan is because they have a reputation of hiring decent humans beings who are also athletic.  Apparently you can build a winning franchise with decent people – the Spurs have won two NBA Finals recently.
