    With the ridiculousness of Vick, Henry, OJ, etc... there has to be enough felonious footballers to make an actual team, right? I tried to steer clear of DUI/DWIs because they happen so often. I'd also like to steer clear of drug offenders because, like heyabbott said, their addictions are diseases.

    This can be done with every sport.

    But the sheer numbers of good players getting busted is ridiculous. And some of the crimes are not the more common domestic assault, DUI, possession, etc. Basketball has a lot of bad eggs, but the rosters aren't nearly as big.

    LT doesn't deserve to be on the team. Drug abuse isn't a crime, it's a disease

    The vast majority of these players were "just" drug cases. No real major violent offenders in that group. I don't get me started on Joe Jackson. Plus, where are the numbers that the NFL provides?
