I couldn't believe this when I first read it. I'm a huge sports fan and even agree that players deserve certain perks. However, getting a slap on the hand for DUI manslaughter is a travesty of justice.

How many of you here think you would only be in jail for 30 days if you drank until 7am and killed a man on his way to work? I myself have had a DWI, but was fortunate enough to not injure anybody or myself, and I find this disgusting that when somebody was killed they get less of a punishment.

It's ridiculous. Brings up M. Vick comparisons. What he did was heinous but he did do hard time for it not to mention totally screw up what football career he had left.
As far as DT. I don't know if anything can be done on the judicial end of it but the NFL should have the good taste to suspend him for at least a few years.
