Manage episode 331521986 series 2473576
This week, we check into a man, who worked his way onto an NFL roster, almost exclusively on the back of his ability to use his body, with reckless abandon, to take down, and preferably hurt, opposing players. Some cracks began to appear, while still playing. He attacked a reporter, and fought with coaches & teammates. But once he retired, the full impact that his physical style began to show, on his brain. A charge of twice firebombing a business associate & long time friend. He had an epic, and disturbing showdown with police, who wanted him top stop choking & hitting his wife, with a remote control. But they didn't much better luck, with the whole thing escalating from violence to a showdown! All of this, and the NFL thinks his brain is fine!!
Make it to the top of your profession on pure grit & violence, deny firebombing your friend's family home, and try your best to remember the months of the year with "Mean" Gene Atkins!!
Check us out, every Tuesday!
We will continue to bring you the biggest idiots in sports history!!
