No excuses for stars to drive impaired

Of all the stupid, thoughtless, idiotic things a star athlete can do, drinking and driving is near the very top of the list, right there with ... let's see, being one of a handful of men in the same room with one woman, or taking a puff from that funny looking cigarette the night before a scheduled drug test.

It simply makes no sense why today's star athletes continue to get busted for driving while impaired -- and in so doing, endanger their lives, the lives of others, and to a lesser degree, their careers and reputations.

Dolphins receiver Chris Chambers is the latest athlete to be caught doing this very dumb thing. He was somewhere in North Carolina last week when he was stopped for speeding and driving while impaired.

I have no clue whether Chambers is guilty or innocent. But barring a total fabrication of the facts by the arresting officer, one has to believe Chambers must have had something in his system that shouldn't have been there when he got behind the wheel.

So why the no-tolerance policy on this blog for the most stupid crime any star athlete can be accused of? Because it NEVER has to happen.

Note to athletes: Ever heard of limos? Ever heard of cabs? Ever heard of getting a friend to drive you home?

Chambers, like it not, guilty or not, now joins a Goggle search of athletes busted while driving impaired. This dumb incident has put his good name in the same company with folks such as hockey's Sergie Federov and Peter Worrell, baseball's Carlos Guillen, football's Koren Robinson, the Heat's James Posey, Raiders kicker Sebastian Janikowski, hockey's Dany Heatley, and St. Louis Cards' manager Tony LaRussa.

All of them have been busted doing this really moronic thing.

Thank God Chambers isn't on the same list with Rams defender Leonard Little and Cards pitcher Josh Hancock -- the sad list that includes people who have died or killed someone while driving impaired.

And the sadder thing is it can be prevented. Just ask Dan Marino.

Marino, you see, has been known to tip a few back every once and I have zero problem with him doing that. But knowing himself. Marino actually went out and bought himself a limousine during his playing days. The guy would drink on nights he would tape his TV show in Coconut Grove but at the end of the night he'd get in his limo and his driver would take him home.

No incident. No problem.

(Little known fact: Marino's driver at the time was the father of former UM linebacker Dan Morgan.)

When Danny would decide to go out for dinner on the road, he would hire a limo for himself and his buddies or he'd make sure he had a trusted friend that would drive a rental car.

The point is Marino NEVER would put himself in a situation that would compromise his or anyone else's life, his career, or his reputation.

Fast forward to today's athletes. Many of these guys are making more money than Marino did during his heyday. They have the money to buy security from a drunk driving incident.

It's just too bad many don't have the brains to prevent it.

What a load of santimonious BS. You don't have a clue. Of all the stupid, thoughtless, idiotic things a writer can do is jump to comclusions without knowing the facts.

I just saw where Chambers passed his breath test. Armando, you need to get a job as a used car salesman or a preacher where the facts are not so important and you can lecture people all day.

Wow, Armando I agree if you are making that kind of money you can afford a cab, however he passed his breathlizer, you should have waited for the facts before jumping to conclusions. Chris has always seemed pretty clean cut, odds are his behavior at the traffic stop was probably just from being nervous that people like you would over scrutinize him and bring discredit to his familly, the dolphins and the NFL.

I wish Jason Cole was still around he knew what the hell he was doing.

Armando , I think you are off base witht this one. DWI doesn't mean he was drinking. He could've been doing any number of things for that charge. I do agree alot of these pro players are stupid for DUI, and a list of other things!! But as far as Chris goes we need to wait and let the rest of the facts come out!! The real question is "will he be given a pass like Joey Porter"???

Armando, interesting the morons always hide behind the anonymous tag...

I will have to agree with them to an extent. While Chambers passed his test it doesn't preclude him driving sporadicly enough for the agents of the law to pull him over at 2:30AM. The stupidity of his actions was the fact that he put himself in that position to begin with. Athletes have to understand they are no different than Paris Hilton. Unfortunately it is part of the job when a person is paid millions to entertain whether they be an actor or a football player. The public and those agents of the law have this morbid fascination with seeing the rich and famous in the back of a police cruiser.

I don't put Chambers in the category of the classless Pacman or even Joey Porter, but it only takes one mistake to waste a thousand at-a-boys. Now even with the passed test he will be ostracized by the press and forever associated with that one mistake. Clearly getting behind the wheel was foolish because he had a choice not to do it but chose to take his chances.

BTW, good to have you back!

I'm a cop and it doesn't matter that Chamber passed his breath test. He can be impaired with marijuana, he could be impaired with any number of drugs or substances and it wouldn't show on that test.

There's a reason why the charge was not a DWI which is driving while intoxicated.

Get a clue morons.

I agree there's no excuse for driving like a maniac -- impaired or not.

When Marino was not throwing footballs he was snootching 8-balls with many women that were not his wife.

Yeah, I agree that this blog was based on what could have probably been a pretty safe assumption, but the bottom-line was that you put Chambers name along side of people that were definitely driving under the influence prior to having all of the facts.....I agree that there is no excuse for athletes, or anyone, driving impaired, but you probably should have held off a day or two before tossing Chambers' name in that hat.

As for the guy ripping Dan Marino for something alleged back in the early 80's......there is a lot more support for this man being a class act than being what you say.

At the end of the day, of course they are not perfect, but do not kid yourself and follow them blindly like sheep.

Believing Marino is ALL class is about as ridiculous as thinking Michael Jordan "retired" when he went to play baseball and it had nothing to do with his gambling problems.

Chambers should not be blasted till he is found guilty of a criminal charge. Who knows what the statute definitions for driving under the influence are in North Carolina. It could be a number of things including but not limited to recreational narcotics, prescription medications or lack of sleep.

What Cambers is guilty of is being a terrible receiver. Maybe if he drank more he would play better. He can't catch a football but he can catch a buzz. Add Cops to the list of things that Chambers can not out run.

This drunken bum has only had one good football game since the Dolphins wasted the 2nd round pick on him. If Chambers would have caught half of the balls he dropped that game he would have set an NFL record. The guy is garbage who cares how he drives.

Next year the Dolphins will trade their draft picks on magic beans. The Dolphins will plant the magic beans and a giant bean stock will grow. Wayne will climb to the top of the bean stock. And hopefully while on the top, he will take a swan dive into the wreck he calls a stadium. Then maybe, just maybe his wife will take over the organization and make some better football decisions.

Wow, you know you're going to get in some serious trouble when you mess with Danny Boy... Bottom line, we all do and/or have done things that are not within the limits of the law. Even speeding which I know none of you saints have ever done.

I think what Armando pointed out was not Danny's sainthood, but rather that he was wise enough to surround himself with trusted people and not put himself into situations where his reputation was destroyed by his inappropriate actions.

Even FLPD has done some things he may regret and in the world-wind 80's and the Danny worshiped 90's it stands to reason that there would be temptations beyond ones ability to resist.

Let me put it this way, she's a 5'7" Blondie brick house and she says, "I don't like spiders and snakes and that ain't what it takes to love me, like I wanna be loved by you." What are you going to do? I know there are a few among us who would resist, but there are many more who would not.

As for the 8-ball comment, I'm a PA boy and I too have heard that before, but back to the point. If you got that kind of money and you want to do something illicit spend the money to make sure you don't get caught... It's sanctimonious even callous but it is the smart thing to do.

About Danny-boy - of course he ain't no saint. His wife loves him and puts up with him. Anything else is none of our business :)

Having said *that* - I've had five friends tell me that they have personally met Dan Marino off the field. Only *one* said he was a nice guy. "Four out of five dentists ..." :)

FLPD, you must be a cop. You have convicted Chambers of driving under the influence of "something" before his court date. I suppose cops are stupid enough to give a breathalyzer test when some other drug is suspected. Nonetheless Chambers gets his day in court despite retarded prejudging cops.

If you are a cop you must know that the charge of reckless driving is virtually automatic to provide "probable cause" to give the drug test. It means absolutely nothing.

I do know one honest cop but the vast majority of them that I have met are the most dishonest humans I know. What I really love is when they issue speeding tickets after they break the law by speeding into work themselves.

So he was not legally under the influence of anything and apparently had ONE drink. How many of you holier-than-thou douchebags have never had one drink and then driven--there is nothing wrong with it at all!
Maybe his eyes were glass because it was 2.30 in the morning and he was tired? Or maybe that's the sort of pretext all cops use to justify pulling a brother over when he is driving a nice car (or any car for the matter).

I work for the court. cops lie. cops lie all the time. I've heard former cops, now sitting judges, admit, when the tape was off and doors shut that they knew their brethren were often full of $h!+. It's tolerated by the judiciary because it's a dirty dangerous job. So let's not act all astonished at the possibility. Ask Seligman, Evans and Finnerty about Gottleib, Wilson and Nifong.

But let's cut to the chase. Driving with a .06 BAC is legal. Hoisted upon your own petard Betard? Rush to judgment Betard? Wanna apologize now Betard. And that speeding ticket? You think that was clocked by radar? Hell no. It was guesstimated by a cop. A cop who we already know confused a casual drinker for a drunk.

Imagine him up on the stand. So Officer, you made a few mistakes that night didn't you. You thought Mr. Chambers was drunk, correct? But he wasn't, was he. Is this the first time you've made an error in judgment stopping someone? How else did judgment fail you? We know you were wrong about my client's sobriety... why should we trust that your opinion about his speed. How impaired was your judgment officer?

Armando,thanks for the customary excellent work.Let me point-out to the readers whom apparently think themselves criminal law experts because they watch reruns of Law and Order.A driver may be convicted,depending on state law,of driving under the influence even if their BAC is slightly below the legal limit of .08;obviously there has to be other mitigating factors such as reckless driving and being unable to pass the routine coordination tests.That being said,I hope this all works-out in Chambers' favor as he is a nice guy with no apparent history of lawlessness.And this being his first offense should not cost him any playing time.Hopefully,Chambers has learned a valuable lesson.

While I certainly agree that "cops lie," as has been noted several times, and while being below the legal limit is a good thing...let's not forget the alleged fact that Chris was driving 75 in a 45.

30 mph over the speed limit.

Do you have pets? Children? Do you really want people to fly around at speeds that far over the speed limit? He risked the lives of others, which is inexcusable.

I no longer feel he should be cut on principle, but I hope the fine is SEVERE.

If Trent Green were a used car, his Carfax report would reveal that his odometer has turned over and he was totaled in a collision on Sept. 10, 2006. Green was once an excellent system quarterback, a point guard who always got the ball to his receivers in space on short routes and could pick his spots downfield. But he was very shaky when he returned from last year's concussion. Take away his 297-yard, four-touchdown game against the Browns, and he threw for just 1,045 yards, three touchdowns, and eight picks in seven starts. Green turned 37 last week, making him an old dog trying to learn the new tricks of Cam Cameron's offense in a shortened off-season.

Great attitude Dick. They are all guilty just lock everyone up. On the street you clearly have way too much authority for your limitted mental skills.

And since you don't seem to understand the effects of marijuana on drivers I'll spell it out:

1. The tendency is to drive below the speed limit due to being paranoid about being pulled over.

2. The tendency is to give people wide berth when passing because you are acutely aware you are impared (as opossed to alchohol where you think you are invincible).

I have been given one of those field sobriety tests, they are bogus, and leave way to much up to interpretation by someone who gets atta boys for everybody they bring in. During the test you are given instructions, if they are interpreted wrong (due to poor instructions) people are marked down for failing.

Lastly acusing Chris of being on weed is paramount to slander and libel, I hope they trace your IP so you can get your over paid butt sued. It is obvious when someone is on weed, if the officer suspected it their would have been a blood test.

First, I'm not sure why this merits a response from me based on the fact that you posted a T. Green bash in a C. Chambers blog, but that said...

How much discrediting can you deal yourself when you site some stats that say "take away his best game".

take away his best game out of 8 starts is like saying..."take away Peyton Mannings 2 best games last year and his stats are pretty average." Or, take away Marino's two best games in '84 and you'll see it was only a good season, not a great one."

You see, citing stats by taking out the ones that don't fit your premise only prove that your premise is flawed to start with.

How many people on here can honestly say they've never driven after having a couple drinks at least once in their life?

Armando is the way he is, but people don't have to agree with him. And to the cop killer not all cops are people that used to be bullied, plenty of athletes who become cops too. funny thing is the cops that used to get picked on still get picked on but now by the other cops.

Salguero,

Get the crime right, he was speeding, not impaired. I think the legal limit is .08 not .06. That he didn't pass sobriety test, that seems more like it was a subjective test, a matter of opinion. Remember we're talking about the Carolina's and he's a black man speeding in a nice car. So all of a sudden everything looks suspicious to the cop, just because. When the made the law the limit was set very strict, meaning that even at .08 it would be considered DUI. So anything below means you were not even close to impaired. Before you start talking s___t get you're facts straight. So far, he was only speeding, but then again we're talking to Jesus here so nothing us mortal do here on earth really matter. Maybe, we should look at your record, I think I'll do that. After all it is a matter of public records then we can pass judgement on you..................

That's ridiculous as we all should be held to the same standard when it comes to deciding to drive under the influence. And for the record, I've driven when I probably should not have.
