A Bengals player was arrested. Normally this is not news. What is news is that Maualuga was driving a 2003 Pontiac Sunfire.
There was a very telling sequence in last night's excellent episode of Hard Knocks that perfectly illustrates the culture of "toughness" that ultimately dooms so many football players to retirements filled with crippling, life-altering pain.
Rey Maualuga may be an All-American, a Bednarik Award winner, and a Rose Bowl champion, but if he thinks that gives him the right to harass America's Sideline Princess—he's dead wrong.
