If your good and lucky enough to be drafted in the NFL you must be responsible and follow guidelines that are set forth. If you become a starter your going to have instant fans like kids that will consider you the player that they wish to become. You will represent a team with a large fan base which will be rooting for you to be successful.
You will be making big bucks and if your stupid enough to jeopardize your future by doing something so dumb that will ruin your career then its on you. If you were unable to learn from Ruggs tragedy then your just not mentally strong enough. Opportunity to play a game you love while earning a good salary shouldn't be taken lightly.
C'mon man its not that you couldn't afford a cab. Why would you chance it?
Hope future young players are smart enough to see whats at stake.
