Does breaking the law, mean the same thing today that it did ten years ago? I think that is a question that we all need to ask ourselves.

I read an article today concerning the NFL and the fact that they are renegotiating their drug policy with the Players Association. By all indications, under the new policy there will be less suspensions for violation of the drug policy.

Two players who are currently suspended for illegal use of drugs, one for the two thousand fourteen season and another for the first four games of the current season would be eligible to have their suspensions overturned.

So I asked the question again, does breaking the law mean the same thing today that it did ten years ago?

Even the president of the United States has broken the law and nothing has happened to him. There have been no repercussions. That says a lot about the way this country is headed. When we allow the President of the United States to break the law and nothing happens, we are sending a message to the young people of this country. In fact, we are sending a message to every citizen of this country.

If you watch the National Football League on a regular basis, then you are aware of the fact that by week fourteen, over half of the players on any given team, wouldn’t be able to walk out onto the field, much less play, without the use of drugs. They are so banged up, beat up, with injuries across the board, that without the use of the illegal drugs they wouldn’t be able to play the game.

There isn’t a single player playing the National Football League that doesn’t want the recognition and star power that comes with the game. If they are allowed to use drugs without any consequences, what kind of message is sent to the young people of this country. Don’t tell me these players don’t want to be role models. They want the star power, and with the star power comes the role model.

So I asked the question one more time. Does breaking the law mean the same thing anymore?
