More Guns Aren't the Answer ...

I came across an interesting article in USA Today about athlete's reaction to Sean Taylor's death.

Not surprisingly, many of them said they plan on protecting themselves by buying more guns and getting meaner dogs.

Personally, I think some athletes are among some of the dumbest people around. They get skated through school at all levels, due to the financial benefits their athletic prowess could benefit a school.

So at the expense of their own education, they're treated like kings and pushed on to the next level of school, regardless of their true academic ability.

Getting off my soapbox, the way to protect yourself in this situation is not to increase the potential of violence.

Don't put yourself in these situations!!!!!!!!! Traditionally, "flossing" has been a method of showing off for people who don't really have a lot of money, or are just coming into their own financially.

Athletes have no need for that. Why make it rain for these hoes? Why show off when you really do have tons of money. Its pointless.

Why not have a real bodyguard? I think part of the reason why athletes don't go with legit security is because many people in their entourage, sometimes including themselves, still do illegal things.

Unfortunately, there really isn't much of a solution. These guys are probably going to continue to run with the wrong crowds. The possibility of murder is just another new wrinkle to the consequences involved in running with people who have their priorities messed up.

Add that to the list that features gun and drug charges, loss of endorsements, being blacklisted from the league, and now dogfighting charges.
