Good luck trying to explain most human behaviour with logic on that count, but I hear you Chief.
Also a wealthy businessman once told me to never forget that "desperate people do desperate things," and wow have I seen more of that than ever since he told me that in 2002 including during boom times mostly when I was in Las Vegas since I left in this Great Recession.
Also consider the eternal maxim that power corrupts and that even the feeling of absolute power corrupts absolutely.
Certainly I still like you can't wrap my personal head around the matter if I were in such a position, but all the same it does not matter because this sort of deal goes on regularly far more than reported with professional athletes.
Charles Barkley, definitely not a role model by his own admission and definitely not one at the core as we found out a few years ago and recently yet again, caught a lot of heat back in the 1990s for talking openly about the party life of professional athletes. Our prudish, incestuous, and hypocritical largely New York faux national media, before they could be as exposed for the phonies they were and still are shortly after YouTube because popular about 2005, cried another round of phoney outrage, but even no one back then would have thought anything such as Tiger Woods' off the course porn partying would arise including with the encouragement of Barkley and Jordan we learned! :lol:
We can expect far more of the same, and expect http://www.tmzsports.com to become the DOMINANT reporting medium on athlete's true lives just as ESPN and their likes feared rightfully though unadmittedly at the end of last year due to their increasing irrelevance.
And for the better at last I say because I am hardly alone in saying I can't stand phonies whether athletes or not and fawning, circle-jerking largely New York media who pander to them under the guise of "reporting."
Watch each sports commissioner in turn adopt stricter personal conduct policies akin to the NFL, as the cost of a tarnished brand ultimately forces their hands whatever one has to say or not about any ethics or morality.
