    Still, those blowing an opportunity to make the NFL a career positive are not typical by educational opportunity or financial means. The urban youth (ghetto snipes?) that cause a big part of the crime skew the general crime statistics as well.

    For the most part, I think scouting reports, performance at the scouting combine/pro day, and interviews are much more important to NFL teams than stats. Stats aren't irrelevant, but they always have to be taken with a grain of salt because the caliber of competition throughout college football varies, and that can really do a lot to hide certain players' shortcomings or overly accentuate their strengths.

    Times have changed. It used to be football coaches would make players mad by calling them gay, to get them to hit harder.

    It doesn't make a particularly ridiculous statement any less ridiculous, if that's what you're asking.

    Well, they're not supposed to be able to. They don't get to cash in without violating some rules until they turn pro.
