Post Tank Johnson- Clueless Bear? 
http://www.startribune.com/510/story/970516.html

Chicago Bears defensive tackle Tank Johnson met with reporters recently, discussing his efforts to rehabilitate his image after a string of legal problems.

The 2004 Bears draftee made national headlines after a December police search warrant recovered a small arsenal of illegally possessed guns and ammunition, and arrested his roommate for narcotics possession. This seizure followed his arrest in a nightclub in illegal possession of a handgun. Undeterred by the raid, Johnson and his roommate William Posey were partying 2 days later in a gangster nightclub and Posey was shot to death.

In the interview, Johnson expresses his concern and regret about being "stereotyped". "I realize people buy into stereotypes," he said. "I'm young. I'm black. I have tattoos. So it's easy to stereotype me and put me into a category. ... "

Yes, it is, Tank. You carry guns. You hang out in gangster nightclubs. You have a home full of guns and ammunition. Your roommate has narcotics in your home, and is murdered in a gangster nightclub right in front of you. Yes, it is easy to put you in a catagory.

You are a gangster thug.
Now aren't you glad we got past the stereotypes, and kept it real?

It is hard to find NFL players who are not gangster thugs these days. They are like those gangster rap musicians. But who do we blame? Fans are paying these thugs millions of $$$$.
