Do NFL contracts have morality clauses?

...because the heretofore widely-respected Larry Fitzgerald, star wide receiver for the Arizona Cardinals, spent the weekend associating with a rather unsavory character -


From AZFamily.com (the website of KTVK-TV, Channel 3 in Phoenix), written by Dennis Welch (emphasis mine) -

While most Arizonans watched the Super Bowl at home Sunday, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer was hanging out in New Orleans with some big stars and the so-called “Party King of Scottsdale.”
Brewer was in the Big Easy with her son, Michael Brewer, Arizona Cardinal Larry Fitzgerald, actor Edward James Olmos and Scottsdale business man Jason Hope.

Come, come now. Governor Jan Brewer is no more unsavory than Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Speaking of flying trips, do you prefer the company Democrat Sen. Robert Menendez keeps?

@John,

I would be careful about casting aspersions as it is akin to casting stones. Might want to make sure your own house isn't made out of glass first, for I seem to recall rumors of a certain conservative radio host who enjoyed visiting the Dominican Republic and prescriptions for Viagra not in his name.

Dear Phoenix Justice,

Was you warning directed at Craig, me or both of us?

Thane - Truly, Brewer is no more unsavory than Arpaio, but Arpaio wasn't on the trip, so far as I know.

John - I'm more concerned about the apparent corruption. I don't condone the Dominican sex trips, but so long as everyone was/is a freely consenting adult...

However, since you apparently think the hooker allegations are significant, I've got two words for you -

David Vitter.

I do not know if the sex charges are true but I do know that there is no corruption at all in Brewer's trip and a lot of yellow flags surround Menendez and his trip with someone he appears to have helped alot.

Regarding the two words, if they are what I think they are, then you and your blog just went down a whole lot of notches. I thought that you ran a thoughtful and intellectual site and not a street corner blog where the reply of last resort are the two words I think you are referring to.

If I am wrong, please set me straight. If not, so long.

John,

A couple of things -

1. David Vitter is a US Senator from Louisiana. A few years ago, he was caught up in a prostitution scandal, but was excused for his bad behavior by his fellow Republicans. Apparently, you consider his name to be some sort of obscenity or vulgarity. While I consider his behavior and his arrogance about it to be somewhat vulgar, his name is not.

2. I'm a wiseass. Yes, occasionally thoughtful, sometimes perceptive, and (hopefully) frequently informative, but I am (almost) always mouthing off. This picture was part of that. I don't care for Brewer, that much is obvious, but I basically agree with Thane on this (and he and I almost *never* agree on something) - as bad as Brewer is, she is nowhere near the most embarrassing official in the state.

My error. The words David Vitter were off my screen due to spacing and I thought you were referencing two other words, which can be signed with a single digit.

Disregard my comments. To err is...

Also a good lesson at how easy it is to misunderstand.
