Lawrence Taylor - drugs, statutory rape
Ray Lewis - obstruction of justice/murder
Terrell Suggs - domestic abuse
Magic Johnson - not quite degenerate but obviously promiscuous
Roger Clemens - steroids

I should package them up and sell as the Modern Day Degenerate Athlete Collection.

Time to clean up the collection!

Most players have been permitted to behave how they want, with little to no accountability for their actions.

All due to their athletic ability.

This behavior has long been laid from early years, thru high school and college and the pro's.

I suspect there are prevalent problems on college campuses and in the pro's that are unreported or kept quiet by one means or another.

You need an O.J. and a Ray Rice and a Denny McLain and a Chad Curtis, for starters.

Your degenerative athlete wall is incomplete w/o something of Wilt and his 20K female conquests.

Might be worth noting that Clemens has been discussed in similar circles as Rose is now?

Maybe Rose can sign a few baseballs "I'm sorry I had sex with a minor."
