Rough start to new season
The NFL season just started and with it came heartache and
trouble on and off the field: a player's apparent suicide;
drunken-driving charges against another; drug suspensions; Reggie
Bush's broken leg; a female reporter 's locker room plight; chaos
From the death of Broncos wide receiver Kenny McKinley, found
with a pillow over his head and a pistol on top of the pillow, to
the DWI charges against Jets receiver Braylon Edwards to Tampa Bay
safety Tanard Jackson being suspended for at least a year, the
headlines have skewed toward the negative. Or the tragic.
Commissioner Roger Goodell's league has seen too much
irresponsible behavior dominating the news, even with TV ratings
soaring and tight finishes keeping fans engrossed.
