Radio Analyst Endorses Criminals In Football


Yahoo Sports helped us track this story down. Former Notre Dame running back Allen Pinkett is also a radio analyst for the team. Pinkett was on CBS's "The McNeil and Spiegel Show" on 670-AM The Score in Chicago and said  having criminals on a football team makes for a better product.

Pinkett said, "I've always felt like, to have a successful team, you gotta have a few bad citizens on the team. I mean, that's how Ohio State used to win all the time. They would have two or three guys that were criminals. That just adds to the chemistry of the team. I think Notre Dame is growing because maybe they have some guys that are doing something worthy of a suspension, which creates an edge on the football team. You can't have a football team full of choir boys. You get your butt kicked if you have a team full of choir boys. You gotta have a little bit of edge, but the coach has to be the dictator and ultimate ruler."

He went on...

"I don't want any mass murders or rapists. I want guys that maybe get caught drinking that are underage, or guys that maybe got arrested because they got in a fight at a bar, or guys that are willing to cuss in public and don't mind the repercussions of it. That's the type of criminal I'm talking about."
