My father in law said that the NBA has more players with a criminal record than any other sport. Is this true? I looked every where and I couldnt find an answer to this. His favorite sport is the NFL and it seems to me like the NFL would have more felons than the NBA. In the last few years there have been a couple NFL murderers like Rae Carruth comes to mind. Even Ray Lewis was involved in some kinda homicide if I remember correctly. I remember a NJ Nets guy shot someone on accident with a shotgun a few years ago, but It seems to me the NFL would have more criminals, just based on the fact that there are way more players, personell and coaches in football than in bball. There is alot of pot smoking in the NBA and alot of steroids in baseball. There certainly are alot of thugs in the NFL. What about hockey? Anyways, let me know what you find. Any links would be helpful.
So which pro sport has the most felons or players with a criminal record? NBA, NFL, MLB, NHL?
