The difference is, being an alcoholic or a drug addict in and of itself<quoted text>
Like I said before the children don't idolize athletes for what they do or how they conduct themselves. They idolize them for the money athletic ability and fame. Ask any child from 5-16 who their favorite athlete is and what they do for their community, what charities they support and so forth and I am willing to bet 9 out of 10 times they will not know. If MV is reinstated you wont see kids walking around with MV jersey's saying they want to be dogfighters. One other thing if he is reinstated and changes his life around he will be a perfect mentor for children. Kind of like how an ex-alchoholic or addict is a better counselor than one who has not been.
isn't a violent crime.
