    Dallas Cowboy busted for drugs and gun possession

    So this guys excuse as to why he had pot and a handgun in his car when he got pulled over was
    because he and his friends had taken the marijuana out to the gun range the day before and he left it in the car.
    Oh yes, I always get high and play with guns.

    This lends a lot of support to the current research that football causes brain damage, even without suffering concussion. It is called Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy, or CTE. Even one season of playing football, without a diagnosed injury, can cause permanent brain damage.

    Or maybe this supports the theory that a lot of football players are just not that smart to begin with. A study of overall intelligence that was specifically designed for NFL players showed that a lot of very successful players really aren't all that smart. Surprisingly, some of the lowest scorers were quarterbacks, including a couple of big names.

    I like football.

    Will you teach me to football?

    On a more serious note, football is mostly muscle memory with some cognitive requirements thrown in. Some of my coaches use to name the plays (confusing). The smartest coach I ever had was when I was in 5th grade playing city league football. He had something like five standard offense formations, like the I, pro, single and shotgun, and taught us a simple which instantly let us know whether it was a running play or a passing play, who was getting the ball, and the count.

    Example: Run LRB RT 3 means it's a running play with a handoff to the left running back going through the right tackle position on 3. Pass RWR MM 2 means a pass to the right wide receiver to the middle, medium distance, on 2.

    Fun times!

    I preferred chess and aviation.

    Why do so many high paid athletes think they're privileged characters?

    And, no, I don't like spectator sports.

    Because historically, they are.

    Funny how so many people who get caught drinking or doping can't seem to obey all of the other laws that Average Joe Citizen has to obey. We buy licenses and insurance and don't try to draw a lot of attention to ourselves by blasting our music or acting like jerks. The news paper is full of people who get caught for DUI simply because they didn't have current registration.

    Some big-salary sports figures, entertainment figures, and business tycoons see themselves as being somehow better than the rest of us, as if their greater incomes indicate their greater human value.
    Almost always, in the cases of these specific egoists, the exact opposite is true. They are indeed jerks. But for the lesson to hit home, they first have to be caught and punished by peace-keepers who are neither "on the take" nor overawed by their self-perceived luminosity.

    ...And frequently this happens exactly because these people want to be caught.
    Most DUI offenders know that they're doing something wrong, and want to be stopped and paid attention to. They are incapable of controlling their impulses, and want the peace-keepers to do it for them.

    He was not in California. However, you are otherwise probably correct.

    Ehh just another guy breaking the law this wouldn't have made the news if not for being a sports figure. I dont see where folks are getting the "thinks he is better" or "privileged " angle. From the report all I got was that he wasn't very smart.
    Those are my principles, and if you don't like them.....well, I have others.

    There are about 1700 pro football players. Many of them are stand up people. Some are not.

    Pick 1700 people from any occupation in the US. You'll get some misfits.

    As for the cognitive test - the Wonderlic test - there are plenty of pro football players that are pretty dang smart. Zeke Elliot scored a 32, for example, and a 32 is the 91st percentile. He ain't no dummy. There are plenty of players that scored higher.

    As for Mr. Ross, it appears he likes guns and weed. I'm not a fan of weed, but I am a fan of guns, so he can't be all bad. Seriously, hopefully he gets the chance to straighten things out.
