the national arrest rate is over 4%. Nfl players are arrested at a lower rate than the national average. There is no debate about it
I'm not sure what argument you're trying to make.
A story I heard this week said that when Goodell took over as commissioner he was privately telling people that he thought the number one issue he faced was..... player conduct. He was incredibly worried about what it would do to the NFL.
Doesn't matter that NFL players are arrested at a lower rate than the general population. Each time an NFL player is arrested, it's headline making news. It's not that way if you or I or any other regular Colt's fan gets arrested. Then, only our family and friends care.
World of difference......
