Q    

All these NFLers need to be watched now---given the suicide of Dave Duerson and the effects of CFE, these guys just arent right in the head---far too many hits. Domestic violence, substance abuse, anger, road rage, assaults.

If the Players and Owners are not making this health concern a big part of their Greed Negotiations going on right now--then let them all suffer the consequences of being greedy. IN the near future no self respecting parent will allow their child to take part in football...it will become solely the domain of the poor and ignorant to fill its ranks.

It will become a Gladiator sport with Step N Fetch It types providing the entertainment---please change the rules, equipment, treatment, something to stop this madness.

I have to wonder exactly who it is that's running The Plaza, The Beverly Hills, & others like them when they let the lower types stay there simply because they have money. Nouveau riche never know how to act in these places. Those pesky innkeeper laws.

OK...The hotel is NOT in Beverly Hills despite the fact that owners want it to be. If it was then the Beverly Hills PD would have been there. Please TMZ stop this BS...only things that are ACTUALLY in Beverly Hills should be noted as being in Beverly Hills.

Does not sound like he did anything and the hotel was over-reacting and looking for 15 minutes of fame because it was Marion Barber that they called the cops on and sure it would get them some press.....But in this case all it is getting the Hotel is NEGATIVE press.....could not have been bad.,...he was not arrested and released after speaking with the police and he posed with a child for photos......so ...............

Barber was extremely intoxicated possibly on drugs or suffers from schizophrenia. Threatened people with physical violence and caused a commotion. NBA All-star attracts all the ghetto folk. NFL should drug test him!
