Default Derrick Ward rips NFL players who drive drunk

After reading this, I'm missing me some Derrick even more than before. Where are all the other supposed upstanding NFL player voices........seems like an epidemic of deaf, dumb and blind.......

Derrick Ward, the former NFL running back who announced his retirement this month, has some harsh words for the NFL players who have been getting arrested for drunk driving this year at a pace of about two a month.

In a series of messages on his verified Twitter account, Ward went off on NFL players who drive drunk, calling them “dumb,” “stupid” and “ridiculous,” among other things, while noting that every NFL player makes enough money to afford to have someone else drive him, and telling players that they should walk before driving drunk if they can’t get a ride.

Alright NFL players!!! Its absolutely E-N-O-U-G-H!!! Drinking and Driving? How dumb can u be? Its absolutely stupid and your making the good

“Alright NFL players!!! Its absolutely E-N-O-U-G-H!!! Drinking and Driving? How dumb can u be? Its absolutely stupid and your making the good guys that actually do right in the NFL look bad,” Ward wrote. “How easy is it to call a cab to get a ride home? So what? Leave your car get it in the am!? Stop being so dumb! Yes that’s right dumb! I’m sitting here retired enjoyed a great career now all I want to do is become a fan and I see numerous arrest for DWI in the past several weeks? How many has it been this week 4? Absolutely ridiculous your not only putting yourself in danger but your putting other innocent people in danger that don’t deserve your stupidity. Open your eyes and do the right thing. I know what its like to get go out get drunk and debate on weather to drive home or not. Call a taxi! So what if u spend some money to take one or U get a ticket on your car in the am when u go bac 2 get it At least u won’t have to pay bail and then lawyer fees and then miss game checks from being suspended for a few games. Damn this really has me furious and its so avoidable. Tighten up youngsters of the NFL because guess what it doesn’t mean National Football League it really means Not For Long league. There’s no excuse to drive drunk! NONE! If all else fails WALK! NFL players are world class athletes Walking should be nothing!”

Ward is, of course, absolutely right. It’s stunning how many NFL players — including Nick Fairley, Kenny Britt, Donald Washington, Marshawn Lynch, Robert Quinn, Aaron Berry, David Diehl, Justin Blackmon, Jerome Felton, Darrius Heyward-Bey, Brandon Meriweather, Knowshon Moreno and Aldon Smith — have been arrested for drunk driving this year. I would say something along the lines of, “What’s going to have to happen before they stop? Will an NFL player have to kill someone?” except that NFL players like Donte Stallworth and Leonard Little have already killed people while driving drunk. And it still hasn’t stopped.

Kudos to Ward for saying what should go without saying.

Epidemic?



Could it be possible that Ward only ripped them because he's now retired? I bet that has something to do with it.

That's not what I was trying to do. What he has done is absolutely commendable and I am glad he lashed out on the players.

I interpreted that as you saying he had no balls while he was in the NFL

Which isn't necessarily a bad thing.

Good for him. Someone needed to say something, retired or not.

I followed him on Twitter for a little while. He didn't seem to be the type of person to hold his tongue when he thought something. He seemed to be able to avoid the "poor timing" posts, but that didn't mean that he refrained from calling people out when they deserved/earned it.
