Obviously, I'm sad that Tucker took steroids and his suspension hurts the Browns and himself, however how freshing is it to have a professional athlete stand up to a mistake and take it like a man. Personally, I'm more proud of his response than angry at his mistake.

While I agree that Mr. Tucker's response is at the least commendable, and at the most, respectable - if, in fact, it is sincere - what is most disheartening is that these situations/indiscretions seem to be increasing rather than decreasing. And compared to the majority of the headlines today involving professional athletes (read: Michael Vick, Chris Henry, Pacman Jones, et al), Mr. Tucker's case is much less significant. Nonetheless, the "above the law/above the league" mentality and sense of entitlement that pervades professional sports make season ticket renewal more and more difficult each year for me. Even worse, these issues also make it increasingly difficult to share and experience professional sports with my son. I never dreamed I would write that last sentence.
