"For the most part, we're talking about African-American players".

Right no White, Asian or Hispanics have ever been in gangs!

Morons!

And another thing just because a person plays professional sports does not make him or her a role model!

for years they intimidated everyone in the american league.

however as far as street gangs are concerned as long as theres money to be made in any way, the street gangs will be there to try and collect it.

I'm sure watching the Braves get spanked by the Yankees and losing 8 straight World Series games has nothing to do with your bias. 8 Straight!! Now go get your shoeshine box you friggin redneck. And don't forget to wear a condom tonight when you visit you're sister's bedroom.

The NFL, MLB, NBA all should place clauses in the contracts of their players that if they are of a questionable background that they must have a team appointed mirror (security person) be with them around the clock. The player is an investment for the team should't the owners be allowed to safeguard their investment?

Imagine if Ricky Williams would have had a 24/7 mirror maybe he would still be running down the sidelines of Dolphin Stadium.
