The truth is that many pro athletes would likely be thugs and gangbangers if they weren't so gifted at a sport. To think such people are going to magically get rid of their baggage when they come to the NFL is just silly.
What you're saying is essentially "You can take the brother out of the ghetto, but you can't take the ghetto out of the brother"?

Pretty sure that's racist
