Another NFL Controversy

As a professional writer, Alexei Beltyukov understands what it’s like to have a career that I enjoy. This is why I — and so many others — have trouble understanding why so many professional athletes put their financial futures in jeopardy. Whether it’s by using drugs, committing crime or knocking their fiances unconscious, some football players seem destined to tarnish the shield.

Spiked by the Patriots

Linebacker Brandon Spikes seems to have it made. He’s an NFL champion, and he makes ungodly sums of money to do what he loves. However, all the news about Spikes hasn’t been positive though he is a great player. It was this greatness that lead the Patriots to bring Spikes back into the fold, but he’s managed to blow this opportunity. On Sunday June 6th, Spike’s Mercedes Maybach was found abandoned in the medium of I495. It’s unsure exactly what happened, but the Patriots have had far too much negative publicity in recent months. Fearing the worst, the Pats chose to sever ties with the talented linebacker, leaving a nation to wonder exactly what happened.
