Athletes and DUIs

so I don't understand why athletes get DUIs. It happens all the time - yesterday, for example, to Oakland Raiders defensive end Tommy Kelly.

But look at Kelly. He signed a $50 million dollar deal, and he can't afford to hire somebody to drive him around? I never understand that. Pay your best friend or a relative or something! Give me a break. Either pro athletes are absolute morons (which is very possible) or, for some reason, it suddenly becomes really fun to drive drunk when you become a pro athlete. Maybe the teams should start hiring drivers or taking away pay or something when athletes get caught.

I would drink heavily if I were stuck on a team like the Raiders, too.

True, but then you could hire somebody!

Maybe it was a cry for help
