Bob Kraft said the Patriots offered Wes Welker more money than the Broncos....

it's been an awesome offseason for Mr. Kraft

In fact their run ins are probably less because they pay the local police to not bust their players.

Do you have an actual source for this or is this opinion?

Sure, maybe society is an indirect cause but it is certainly not to blame like Whitlock is arguing. AH is the to blame for buying into the lifestyle and (allegedly) pulling the trigger.

I don't much agree with Whitlock (except for when he's trashing the kc chiefs) but I kinda agree with this article. He didn't directly criticize BO, but he came pretty damn close.

One thing he didn't touch on is violence in video games. I really, really think that the modern day video game is absolutely desensitizing youth from the reality of violence.

In the end, everyone has to accept personal responsibility for his or her actions. You can't blame society and this is what I've criticized Whitlock on in some other articles he's written, where he links the modern black athlete to the ganster lifestyle. But Whitlock is right, we glorify the hood. Why? I've never agreed with that type of hype and I never will.

Parents are to blame, too. 8 year olds shouldn't be playing Grand Theft Auto. There are ratings on games, just like there are on movies.

If parents parented the way they should.....they wouldn't let the video games "raise" their kids.

Be a ****ing real parent, and stop letting TV and video games "babysit" your kids.

I don't blame society. Video games. Gun stores. Parents etc etc. I blame this idiot wearing a skirt for a shirt.

Games are no worse than anything kids see on tv or in movies or read in books or hear in music. In fact its a poor reflection of the violence we have in the world that is not created for entertainment purposes.

I have played videogames since I was 5 years old. I read a ****ton of books and watch a ridiculous amount of movies. The most gut wrenching thing I have ever seen on television was 9/11. Games, movies and books have violence, but there is a distinct division between fake violence and the real thing. No amount of fatalities in mortal kombat could numb the real thing.

I agree totally. But I still wouldn't let me 8 year old play Grand Theft Auto. I still wouldn't let my 8 year old watch uber-violent, gory movies.

Maybe when she turns 9......

But that takes work! /sarcasm. I totally agree but most of the time little kiddies are playing violent games and said parent just doesn't care.

We can no longer distinguish bad from good. We no longer even aspire to be good; it has considerably less value. Thatís what Aaron Hernandez represents, to me. Popular culture has so eroded the symbolic core principles at the root of Americaís love affair with sports that many modern athletes believe their allegiance to gangster culture takes precedence over their allegiance to the sports culture that made them rich and famous.

I agree, the question I have is this happening by chance or is it part of some grand plan to destroy America and possibly most of humanity. Could this be traced back to Eugenics and a plan to deeply depopulate the planet. When you add it all up, empty food, failed medicine, failed government, endless war with no winner, failed economies, dissected families, killer vaccines and on and on it sure seems to add up to some destructive dark evil directing the insanity.

I'm just saying it's not helping the situation, especially with young kids.

Q: Why did they find Odin Lloyd's body in a gravel pit?

A: Because Hernandez told Tebow to throw it in the lake.

I quit playing video games when I was about 25 years old, and I was excellent at some video games (like Gran Turismo, I killed at that game, I liked the car driving games, building my car, etc.). But it got old, fast. I out grew that crap.

If you are an adult and you spend an inordinate amount of time playing video games, you got issues. The video game industry now caters to mindless adults who play games with other mindless adults because, well, they are kind of a addicted to these games IMHO. It's not healthy. Add in the fact that little kids are playing these same games and it's just a pretty unfruitful way to spend time.
