Whiny millionaire NFL players have completely hijacked America’s favorite pastime where they’ve transformed football fields into political arenas to bash our country and disrespect our soldiers and police. These players frequently play the moral superiority card to justify their protests, as they love to tout themselves as the “woke Americans” who are merely using their prominence in society to stand up for the “injustices” taking place in our country by “racist whites” who always looking for ways to hold them down.
But if these players were in fact “social justice warriors” who are simply protesting in order to take a stand for “oppressed blacks,” they have quite a bit of explaining to do after an extensive record of their own brutality and injustices against their fellow Americans just accidentally got out.
For anyone who’s worked in an office, you’re probably familiar with the little sign some businesses have up that lists the “days since an accident.” But if the NFL had such a sign in their locker rooms listing the last time a player was arrested for a criminal act, the sign would need to be updated constantly, as the current NFL average is about 1 week between an NFL player getting arrested for criminal misconduct.
NFLarrest.com, a website that “provides an interactive visualized database of National Football League player Arrests & Charges,” reveals that the average time between arrests is just seven days, while the record without an arrest “is slightly more than two months, at 65 days.”
There’s a variety of reasons that players get arrested, but the most common crimes are drunk driving, drug offenses, domestic violence, assault and battery, gun violations, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, theft, burglary, rape and even murder. Here’s a colorful little chart where you can see the breakdown of current crimes that have been committed by NFL players over the years, proving these idiots have no real goal for making America a better place or for standing up for “oppressed blacks” as they would love for everyone to believe.
What’s even more hypocritical of these protesting athletes pretending to give a crap about the “oppression” of others is their personal records of abusing women which is a rampant issue throughout the NFL. Not only does the NFL refuse to kick domestic abusers out of the league, they go on to embrace these domestic abusers with special gifts.
Chicago Tribune reported: “In the first round [of the 2017 draft], the Oakland Raiders drafted Gareon Conley, who has been accused of rape. In the second round, the Cincinnati Bengals selected Joe Mixon, who in a much-viewed video punches a woman so hard that she falls down unconscious. In the sixth round, the Cleveland Browns selected Caleb Brantley, who was accused of doing pretty much what Mixon did.”
But the most damning part of the list comes next, as it’s a specific list of the athletes who have protested during NFL games in order to protest America’s “oppression,” but have been arrested for serious crimes against their own black communities. Via American Thinker:
•Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Dante Fowler, for battery and assault in two separate incidents in July 2017 and March 2016, respectively
•Baltimore Ravens outside linebacker Terrell Suggs, for aggravated assault in March 2003 and leaving the scene of an accident and driving with a suspended license in March 2016
•New Orleans Saints running back Adrian Peterson, for injury to a child in Sept. 2014
•Kansas City Chiefs tight end Demetrius Harris, for felony marijuana possession in March 2017
•Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell, for marijuana possession in Aug. 2014
•Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Marcell Dareus, for felony drug possession and reckless endangerment behind the wheel in two separate incidents in May 2014
•Seattle Seahawks practice quarterback Trevone Boykin, for marijuana possession and violating probation in March 2017 and April 2017, respectively
•Baltimore Ravens former linebacker Ray Lewis, for murder in Jan. 2000; he ultimately testified in the case and received one year of probation and a $250,000 fine from the NFL
•New Orleans Saints defensive end Alex Okafor, for evading arrest and running from the scene after police tried to detain him in March 2015
•Tennessee Titans outside linebacker Derrick Morgan, for speeding and driving with a suspended license in June 2010
•Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Artie Burns, for driving with a suspended license in June 2017
•Denver Broncos outside linebacker Von Miller, for failure to appear in court on previous traffic charges, including careless driving and driving without a license, in Aug. 2013 and cited for driving with a suspended license in Sept. 2013
These arrest records only touch on past run-ins that protesting NFL players have had with law enforcement.
Aaron Hernandez of the New England Patriots was even convicted or murder in 2015 for killing Odin L. Lloyd, and later hanged himself in prison after not wanting to serve a life sentence.
In 2013 arrests peaked at 62, but that record is on track to be broken this year, as players are setting a torrid pace to out-do 2013’s record numbers. So far, here’s how many players have been arrested. Notice Assault and Battery top the list via the Daily Wire:
- Assault and battery – 7
- Drugs – 6
- DUI – 5
- Domestic violence – 5
- Disorderly conduct – 4
- Resisting arrest – 2
- Guns – 1
- License/traffic – 1
- Other – 1
That makes 32 arrests — and we’re only in Week 3.
The top crimes are:
- DUI – 218
- Drugs -100
- Domestic violence – 98
- Assault – 74
- Disorderly conduct – 44
The most arrests: Adam Jones, with 10. Jones has played for both Tennessee and Cincinnati, and he’s been accused of poking a hotel worker in the eye, punching a woman, spitting in a woman’s face at a nightclub, and was “charged with felony coercion in connection to strip club shooting that paralyzed a man” (take a look at all his arrests here).
The top positions of those arrested:
- Wide receiver – 140
- Linebacker – 119
- Cornerback – 116
- Running back – 99
- Defensive tackle – 80
Before NFL players want to lecture Americans about being racists and holding down the black man, they need to pull out a mirror and start taking long looks at their own reflection. Looks like they’ve managed to amass quite the extensive rap sheet of brutalizing and committing injustices toward their own fellow Americans proving what giant hypocrites these protesting athletes truly are.
