Did details ever come out on Quinton Carter? I have to assume he was just incorrectly placing bets at craps after the come out roll, but I didn't hear much about it.

This isn't me trying to defend the NFL, I'm actually genuinely curious about how this varies compared to the rest of the population, and how it compares to numbers from big business employers.

If there are 90 players on every team's roster in the off season, there's 2,880 players. With 27 of them being arrested, that's a 0.94% delinquency stat. How does that compare with athletes from other sports? How does it compare with arrest rates for big employers? The general population?

I tried to do a quick google search and what I did find was California specific. Again, didn't take a lot of time.

In 2005 California appeared to have 1.5 Million arrests
http://ag.ca.gov/cjsc/publications/c...05Table16.pdf?

In 2006 California's population was 36.4Million
http://www.factmonster.com/ipka/A0004986.html

Assuming that the population in 2005 was similar to 2006 thats a percentage of 4% of the population arrested at some level.

Again, thats just California and its just based on that.

I don't go to casinos, but I did play blackjack once in St. Maarten and almost got kicked out... I guess I was taking chips off the table early or something. Like I would win the hand then take the chips. I guess you have to wait for the hand to play out or whatever.... I don't know. Gambling is dumb.

I don't know much of the details about this other then he put the dude in a coma. If it was a straight up fight and he didn't do anything but punch a guy during a fight then the attempt of murder charge is BS. Now if its a sucker punch or anything like that then it is warranted.

I don't see much of any issue. 27 out of how many players in the NFL? And most of the charges are things guys in their early 20's get charged with all the time in general. Yet I'm sure people will overreact like they always do...

Because I'm sure you are totally kept in the loop regarding every DUI, bar fight, and other minor arrest that has happened to your fellow employees in the last few months.

I love the charges for Jason Peters - street racing. Can't blame a guy for trying to work on his post-football career. Well done, Jason.

It would be nice to hear what kind if ride he was racing...

Both leagues are pretty much the same. Scottie Pippen just got arrested for breaking the face of an autograph seeker, Gilbert Arenas just got arrested for having 100 pounds of illegal fireworks, Terrence Williams of the Celtics just got arrested for threatening the mother of his 10 year old son with a gun. This all happened within a little more than month.

Come on man. This has been mentioned, but look at the sample size. There are over 6x as many players in the NFL as there are in the NBA. Of course there are going to be more total arrests. But not necessarily as a percentage of the whole group.

I was gonna bring up this point myself.

The NFL has a problem. It's pretty massive, honestly, but since nothing will harm its popularity, no one cares. The NBA is probably the second most successful league in America, but it's not invincible. When it was perceived as the thug league, they actually took the initiative and tried to do something about it. Today, the NBA is about a million times cleaner than the NFL. But no one cares. Just like no one cares that the NFL is also full of steroids. Until the NFL stops being immune to bad publicity, they won't care what their players do.

At least 12 of those are DUI, Marijuana, Bar fight scenarios. While I still think it is really easy to not get arrested, those are not exactly indicative of some sort of plague of crime. Those in particular are basic, young people with money, type of issues.

If it was 27 conspiracy and murder charges....then I may see the NFL as having a problem beyond young rich people do some stupid things.

How does it compare with arrest rates for big employers? The general population?
I'm figuring the total number more conservatively: 53 + 7 ps + 8 ir/pup + 12 fa/fringe = 80 x 32 = 2560 total

Total number of arrests of ADULT MALES in the United States was 8,584,000 in 2009, or 13.54 arrests per 1000, based on 2010 Census of 116,400,000 adult males.

13.54 (per thousand) x 2.56 (thousands) = 34.66 ... so if my numbers are accurate, which is suspect at 6:55 a.m. ....

34.66 NFL players arrested in one year would = national average



_______________________

Two uncounted statistical shifts FAVORING PLAYERS =

1) Age - Players are 36 max. Arrests of 21-36 year old males is a far higher number than arrests of "all" adult males, and,
2) Race - African-American arrest rates are higher than population as a whole, NFL players are 59% black vs. population 13% black

Looks like the players are not much worse than the population as a whole, in fact better I'm guessing when age and race are factored in: 34.99 of every 2560 adult males were arrested in 2009 ... just 48 players, about one-third more than the population (again without age and race factors, which would help players).

Either my numbers are bad, the players are better than we thought, or people are worse than we thought. Maybe it's like *EDIT* JERERRY SPRINGER (not zphil Dinohue)there' a huge "under"-class in America we don't see or hear from. Maybe they get arrested in high numbers. Know nothing about football. Live in trailer parks. Watch Fox News.

It's no surprise really as what would most of these football players be doing for work if there was no football.

I agree and I don't think it is too big of a deal other than the major crimes like murders and robbery.
