The NFL proudly bragged the other day that their arrests are down 40% from last year. I’m going to go ahead and qualify that as a weird brag. Like, sweet job NFL- your players are acting like normal citizens are supposed to. That’s really a big accomplishment.
Well, that accolade can get thrown out the window. Even though an arrest hasn’t been made yet, one will be, and it is a bad one. According to several sources, former Philadelphia Eagles and current Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy and three of his cronies decided to thug around and assault a few off-duty police officers in a bar… over a bottle of champagne. They did a number on the cops- one has a broken jaw, one has a fractured skull, and Philly police leaders say that they, “are serious injuries”. Now, like I said, McCoy hasn’t been arrested yet, but there’s a warrant out for his arrest. I believe in innocence until proven guilt. Either way, several eye witnesses have identified not only McCoy, but his three buddies all by name. I’m going out on a limb and saying he’s going to jail. Oh by the way, there’s a video of him doing it.
Here’s the deal for the NFL: if they want to make a statement, suspend LeSean McCoy tomorrow for an entire season, guilty or not. He either A- did it (likely) or B- didn’t do it, but was enough of a moron to put himself in a position to be a person of interest. You know that the police union will pursue this case feverously. The way the evidence and case sits now, if he’s proven guilty, he should, for all intents and purposes, be in jail. I mean, he curb-stomped a friggin’ cop. There’s no excuse to curb-stomp ANYONE. ANYONE. PERIOD. DONE. END OF DISCUSSION.
Then again, the legal system is screwed. Ray Lewis helped kill a guy and didn’t spend a day in prison because he’s a rat (but it’s all good guys! Apparently him and God are boys). Ray Rice beating his fiancé? No jail time. Greg Hardy for a plethora of things? No jail time, for any of it. But you send Michael Vick to jail for a few years for dog fighting? I mean, I love dogs. There’s a pretty big difference between a dog, which is an animal, and a person, which is… well, a person!
I hope McCoy goes to jail. I hope he gets screwed out of his NFL career because he’s an ass. He’s always been a punk and it’s as simple as that. He goes calling people racist for no reason, he’s a pretty shitty dad, he’s just a bad person.
Congrats LeSean, you ruined your NFL career! How do you feel about that?
Yeah, I figured.
 I stood with LeSean McCoy professionally, not personally. There’s a big difference.
