    I don't think anyone could die from what happened on that boat. Drunk drivers kill people.
    Yes, this is technically worse, but it doesn't get that much attention since it happens all the time to athletes. But heaven forbid daunte gets a steamy lap dance...
    I Love Kerry Collins (and John Rocker).

    Re: Offord arrested for DUI!

    I openly admitt having a DUI 9 years ago and feel that anyone on any day/night can get one that drinks and chooses to drive. I am actually glad I got one and didn't hurt anyone in the process. It served as a wake up call and haven't drove drunk since. As a pro athlete being in the public spotlight you'd think that you could leave the Escalade or Hummer home if your headed out for a few drinks. It drives me crazy with all the crap pro athletes get away with. I say sit him down for a couple games and move him to a backup role and let him ponder his decision to drink and drive. Although million dollars athletes seem to buy their way out of trouble.

    Isn't going to happen. 1 & 1/2 beers just isn't going to put you at 0.08.

    Yes it is, but 1-1/2 cans of beer still isn't going to do it.

    Its a measurement of alcohol in your blood as a percentage. Heavier people have more blood and therefore require more alcohol to reach the same percentage. Also, it takes time for alcohol to be absorbed into the bloodstream and things like food in your stomach will effect the rate at which it is absorbed. There is also a dissipation rate, rule of thumb is 1 beer per hour (but yes, this is different for different people), if you drink 6 beers over 6 hours, you'll more than likely be under the .08 limit. 6 beers in 2 hours and you're busted.

    The other thing is that different people are effected differently by alcohol. Some folks lose their motor skills and thought process at much lower levels than other people, however, since it is so hard to make judgement calls the actual BAC number is pretty much the major factor in prosecuting someone. However, someone with a high BAC of say .15 that is a pretty heavy drinker may easily convince a police officer that he is okay to drive and look good on the sobriety tests and be allowed to motor on home. The next guy at .08 may be weaving down the road and having a hard time walking a straight line (this dude is more likely to tagged with a DUI).

    BTW: Shame on you Willie, don't do it again, take it as a wake up call and get back to focusing on football.
