    Another NFL star and television sports commentator is in trouble, this time for drugging women and raping them from Los Angeles to New Orleans. Darren Sharper surrendeedr to police yesterday. Ex-NFL Star Sharper Surrenders to Police on Rape Charges - NBC News

    What is the cause of these behaviors that continues to plague college and professional athletes on and off the field?

    I'll wait for the completion of the investigations and pursuant trials.

    Looks like there's a long line of women claiming he raped them.

    Where have they been? Rape is hard to prove.

    I dunno, Sharper is kind of a scumbag.. Wouldn't surprise me much, but I agree, let's see the facts before passing judgement.

    Used to be a D-back.

    Now he's just a D-bag.

    It appears he was always a d-bag, we just didn't know.

    As for the OP, I'd suggest that there probably isn't a wave or trend of pro athletes committing these crimes. They get disproportionate attention. A hundred other women got raped last night, but they aren't on the news. Another hundred were murdered.

    A hundred other guys didn't pick off that asswipe Manning to secure his city's first ever Super Bowl.

    If nobody cared more about celebrities than their neighbors, TMZ would go away. What a shame that would be, huh?

    Many of them think they are entitled and above the law. The have reason to think that way, since it does seem they get passes more often than you or I would. They've honed their aggression to precision sharpness on the football field. They have more money than they know what to do with. And, probably? They were never nice guys to begin with.

    Now now, every story has two sides. I actually haven't heard what Sharper has to say about it. Rape is a hard charge to prove (beyond reasonable doubts), and celebrities are huge targets for this.

    The fact that multiple women in multiple cities are claiming this is a huge strike, but I'd still like to see what he has to say about it. Let's face it - lots of people were ready to string Kobe up by his nuts when that kooky chick in Colorado got all pissy, but we all know that it wasn't rape. It was just some bitch looking for 15 minutes and a payday.
