The Headline should read, Another Big Ugly Dumb Ass football player does something stupid again. To bad the NFL doesn't have an IQ level that needs to be met before you can play. Or pass a psychiatric exam. If they went to college then basket weaving must have been expanded to a four year curriculum. Basic basket weaving, intermediate, general , and advanced.
