    NFL players arrested less frequently than national average.

    Surprising Numbers About NFL Arrest Rates | ThePostGame

    The numbers don't lie. One in every 45 National Football League players (2.2 percent) is arrested. The national arrest rate is 1 in 23 (4.2 percent), according to the FBI in 2010.

    I realize that the exact correlation between poverty and crime has never been defined, and can be a controversial subject, but there is some correlation.

    Therefore, it makes sense that professional athletes would be arrested less than the national average. Very few of them are poor.

    So it's the bye week in Minnesota where many fans organize work place pools to see which Viking will get arrested this year !
    Not really, but it is something that seems to be a perrenial concern.
