The Cincinnati Bengals’ linebacker Odell Thurman is in trouble again. His season came to an abrupt halt when he was arrested Wednesday for drunken driving. His hearing is scheduled for Monday. He was already serving a four game suspension for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy, and he had had several problems of this sort in the past. Coach Marvin Lewis, apparently tired of doling out chance after chance, had Thurman clean out his locker. What boggles the mind is given the fact that it is highly improbable for a player to make it to the most elite level of football in the world (NFL), why would a player treat this rare privilege with little or no respect by repeatedly engaging in stupid acts such as these?
