Nothing against hockey, its a great sport, one of my favorites when I used to watch sports. I'm just saying there is just as much bad behavior as in any other major sport so I think its unfair to call NFL players thugs but say hockey players are OK. Anytime you give young men a ton of money, put them on a pedestal and make excuses for their behavior you have trouble whether it be athletes or music stars like Justin Beiber. As far as number of convictions go I think there are way more NFL than NHL players due to roster size.Agreed. It would be hard for anyone to deal with millions of dollars being thrown in their face, but imagine when you're in your early 20's and still have a lot of growing up to do. It's no surprise that many can't handle it.
