Baltimore Ravens running back Jamal Lewis was indicted today on federal drug conspiracy charges. Lewis is accused of conspiring to distribute cocaine in the summer of 2000. He had the second highest rushing total in NFL history last season.

So a guy who's got a six year, 35 million dollar contract is trying to buy cocaine for his friend, PLUS he "taxes" it so he can make some money on top of it. I guess that big contract just wasn't enough.
It never ceases to amaze me how pro athletes mess up good things (Rae Carruth, Dexter Manley, Willie Mayes Aikens, etc...)
Gravity is a contributing factor in nearly 73 percent of all accidents involving falling objects.
Of course, Ray Lewis was innocent, so I have hope.
I have less hope because:
a. This is a federal charge b. This is Jamal's hometown c. This is before his fist two positive drug tests d. Chester Taylor can't handle 16 games as the starter
The other party's nomination battle is still playing out. The candidates are an interesting group, with diverse opinions. For tax cuts, and against them. For NAFTA, and against NAFTA. For the Patriot Act, and against the Patriot Act. In favor of liberating Iraq, and opposed to it. And that's just one senator from Massachusetts. - President George W. Bush
Combine this with the CU stuff and all the other crap in college and pro ball and one has to wonder what the hell is goin on with the football culture in this country. Maybe its time to treat them like real people, not prima donnas.

...and now of course watch it be Ricky Williams :)
Was he going to be on the cover? If so, damn, that sucks. I'm a bit relieved, however, as I was very very sure that it was going to be Priest Holmes.
In the context of baseball, the use of drugs hurts only the player. In the context of baseball, the use of alcohol hurts only the player. In the context of baseball, womanizing hurts whom? Maybe the wife of the player? In the context of baseball, felonies are crimes against society, not against baseball. In the context of baseball, gambling is the only crime against baseball.
Gambling, in the context of baseball, is a capital offense and Rose has richly earned-- hell, he agreed to-- his death sentence. Let him hang.

If I recall correctly, Little plead to the DUI, and the other was dismissed, but I may be mistaken, either way, he is a quiet, reserved guy, and has done his time, no matter how much it was reduced by his status, he did it, and didnt complain.
*edit* I was wrong: In June 1999, Little was sentenced to 90 days in jail, 1,000 hours of community service, and placed on probation for four years after pleading guilty to involuntary manslaughter in the drunken-driving death of Susan Gutweiler, 47, of Oakville. The crash occurred in October 1998.

I agree that he served his time & answered for his crime, I just think it's sad that instead of being able to admire these people for who they are, we have to settle for admiring the way they do their time...
I think there's a better chance than you might think. Much in the same way some believe TBS has deemphasized talking about potential blown calls from orders of MLB, ESPN does a fair bit of kowtowing to the NFL.
