National Football League will officially endorse and become part of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD)’s “Campaign to Eliminate Drunk Driving” initiative and expand its partnership with the organization in the 2013 season. According to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, “we are pleased to endorse MADD’s campaign and further build upon our partnership to do everything we can warn players, team personnel and fans about the dangers of drunk driving. We have made progress but have more work to do to ensure that everyone associated with the NFL makes safe, responsible decisions with alcohol and never gets behind the wheel when they shouldn’t.”
I wonder why the NFL is doing that. Hmmm..
The Bears replacement for Brian Urlacher? D.J. Williams, whose second DUI came last summer.
The Bears’ Evan Rodriguez was a passenger in a vehicle, apparently while drunk, but still got arrested for disorderly intoxication and resisting arrest in Miami Beach.
Rams cornerback Trumaine Johnson was arrested for DUI Friday morning in Missoula, Montana after being stopped for driving without his headlights on.
