GOODELL COMES DOWN HARD ON NFL DOMESTIC VIOLENCE!
49'ER ARRESTED FOR DOMESTIC VIOLENCE!!
Professional Athletes Gone Wild!
RAVENS CUT TIES WITH RAY RICE OVER DOMESTIC VIOLENCE!
SAYS HE WAS REACTING TO WHAT SHE HAD DONE!
In just the first EIGHT months of 2014, 34 NFL players have been arrested! That would average one arrest per week. One of the reasons why? Professional athletes are coached on every level of being an athlete, but they have very little understanding or education on what it takes to be a responsible professional off the field! As one athlete recently told me, "We are told what to do right from the start. When we are left alone to figure out our personal lives, of course we are not very good at it!"
If you are a coach or agent and you are reading this and it is after ten PM, do you know where your professional athletes are? Do you know what they are doing? Without the kind of proper training and direction early in life that Derek Jeter had from his mother and father, the player does not have enough “coaching or training” to make the right decisions for themselves when it comes to their personal lives. They have few healthy concepts to build upon when it comes to personal relationships.
They are not looking out for their best interests when they join the guys at the clubs or bars. In their minds, they want what the other players seem to be getting and they are willing to leave behind common sense to get what they want.
What players are not thinking about is, females they are meeting at clubs and bars are there because they are on a mission as well. Their mission is to get a pro athlete interested in them. They will do whatever they have to do to get into a relationship with an athlete...to make lives easier for THEM!
My job will be to bridge the gap between being naive and inexperienced off the field to learn common sense and right from wrong in their personal world.
NFL is trying to get players to stop being violent by punishment!
THAT IS NOT THE ONLY WAY TO STOP IT!
The way to stop it is to get to the players to understand that looking for the wrong kind of girls at bars or clubs will eventually turn against the player during the rough times. When the problems arise such as jealousy, that is what sets off the violent interaction!
I AM A RELATIONSHIP TRAINER!
Wanting better, deeper relationships with a healthier mate is what will minimize the problem and I can be the vehicle to make that happen!

Dez Bryant - July 2012
Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant was arrested Monday on a misdemeanor domestic violence charge, DeSoto (Texas) police confirmed.
According to police, Bryant was booked after turning himself in without incident. The alleged assault occurred Saturday, police said. No further information was immediately available.
A source said that Bryant, in an argument with his half brother, wound up pushing his mother, Angela. According to the source, police responded to a call on Saturday night, but no arrests were made at that point. Further examination of the reports resulted in Monday's arrest, the source said.
Bryant was charged with a Class A misdemeanor for assaulting a female family member, police told KDFW-TV in Dallas. The woman did not need to be taken to the hospital for her injuries, the report said.

49'ers Leads The LEAGUE......
The 49ers are not handling the disturbing breaking news of the Ray McDonald arrest on August 31st, 2014, on felony domestic violence charges involving his reportedly pregnant fiancee at a party at his home in San Jose Sunday morning.
This is one more extremely troubling incident in what has become an ugly pattern under Jim Harbaugh’s tenure. Since the beginning of 2012, when Harbaugh and Baalke had control of the team for almost a year, the 49ers lead the league in player arrests. That statistic comes from the San Diego Union-Tribune database, which tracks NFL arrests.
Ray McDonald is the 10th arrest in 32 months. In second place, according to the database, is Detroit, with nine. Tampa has had eight arrests and several teams are tied with seven: Chicago, Cincinnati, Denver and Minnesota. Harbaugh’s brother John has dealt with six arrests during that time frame. Stretch the period back to the beginning of Harbaugh’s tenure, in early 2011, and the 49ers end up tied for second – Minnesota leads the league with 14, but has since switched coaches.
