    Maybe the statistical experts can make sense of it but it seems that professional football players just might have a propensity to commit murder more than most segments of the sports industry. Wayne Smith, Ray Lewis, Glen Sharpe and now Tovan Belcher who murdered his girlfriend and put a gun to his head in front of coaches and team representatives in the parking lot of the stadium.

    Seems like NFL players have substance abuse problems

    We should have car control laws to prevent such a tragedy from happening in the future!

    My first guess was actually that his brain was scrambled from concussions.
