    Another NFL player arrested as league’s nightmare week continues
    By Frank Schwab | Shutdown Corner

    Commissioner Roger Goodell's tough player conduct policy was supposed to stop NFL players from getting in trouble ... right?

    Another day, another arrest for the NFL. This time it's Colts safety Joe Lefeged, who the Indianapolis Star said was chased down by police and will be arraigned on multiple gun-related offenses.

    Somewhere, Goodell and the rest of the NFL is praying this nightmare week ends. And they'll probably be quite happy when the offseason as a whole is finished.

    This week has included Aaron Hernandez getting charged with murder, Ausar Walcott being charged with attempted murder and Josh Brent failing a second drug test while out on bond on an intoxicated manslaughter charge. Now comes the Indianapolis Star news that Lefeged and a friend were driving in Washington, D.C., and when police attempted to pull over their car and a chase ensued. The men were arrested after the chase and a handgun was found in the car.

    Lefeged and Timothy Wilson will be arraigned on charges of carrying a firearm without license, unregistered firearm, unregistered ammunition and presence of a firearm in a motor vehicle, the Star said.

    Lefeged is entering his third season with the Colts, and last year he played in all 16 games, starting four. He also started a playoff loss to Baltimore.

    Business Insider reported earlier this week that there have been 27 known instances of NFL players being arrested since the Super Bowl. The story was outdated almost immediately. Brent and Lefeged are the 28th and 29th known NFL player arrests this offseason.

    What is shocking is the Raiders have the LEAST of the AFCW teams, considering Al's complete disregard for character when drafting.

    This is what happens when some people have too much money and too much fame, too early in life. They don't know what to do with it all, so they get big heads and walk around thinking they're all that, like they're above everyone and everything (including the law). Then they have the nerve to be shocked when they screw up big time and a cop puts a pair of matching bracelets on 'em.....and suddenly they're no longer being treated like American royalty.

    Can you imagine what it must be like for them later in life, knowing they peaked at 23? Nah, not for me.....

    And...this is happening after the rookies attend meetings and listen to players who acted irresponsibly. Those players flat out tell them "I was in YOUR shoes and f'cked up.". Apparently living, breathing examples of how NOT to act aren't enough.

    They may not be teenagers anymore, but mentally many of them haven't progressed beyond that stage. Star athletes have lived in a bubble of where they are lavished with attention and their poor behavior is overlooked. The league may try to advise these players what they should (and should not) do, but that doesn't mean it sinks in for most of them.
