The Latest contender for the Ray Lews NFL Busta Thug Award

Listening to Rush Limbaugh this morning you would have thought that the problem here is lack of a PR campaign by the NFL. Limbaugh's take on this news is that there have been 27 NFL players arrested since the Super Bowl. Something must be wrong! Adding that the NFL needs to get control of it's image and the culture of people they are recruiting.

Really? You really think so Rush?

This is yet another example of why I personally gave up and quit following the NFL a long, long time ago. Hells bells! Ray Lewis did the same thing in Atlanta in 2000 and he not only walked away from any serious prosecution, but he recently retired as an all time NFL All Star of the game and he will soon be enshrined in the NFL hall of fame.

Former Patriots player Aaron Hernandez is probed in two more murders, law enforcement officials say

Former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez, already facing charges in a murder last week in North Attleborough, is also being investigated in connection with a July 2012 double murder in Boston, according to two law enforcement officials briefed on the investigation.
Investigators believe a fight broke out at Cure, a club in the South End, between two men and a group that included Hernandez.
The two men, Daniel Abreu and Safiro Furtado, friends who grew up in Cape Verde, left the club with three other men in a BMW sedan in the early morning hours of July 16, 2012.
Abreu, who was driving, stopped at a traffic light on Shawmut Avenue, about to make a left onto Herald Street, when a silver or gray SUV with Rhode Island license plates pulled alongside the sedan. Someone from the SUV opened fire, killing Abreu, 29, and Furtado, 28.
The men who were with them survived the attack and the killings were left unsolved.
The officials said investigators now believe that Odin Lloyd, the man Hernandez is charged with killing in a North Attleborough industrial park June 17, may have had information about Hernandez’s role in the double slaying.
“The motive might have been that the victim knew [Hernandez] might have been involved,” one of the officials said.
