MY TURN: Players out of control

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

NFL and college football programs just don't get it.

Football is so popular that players, owners and administrators don't think the rules apply to them. 

The public has been fed up with the behavior of football players, who abuse women and children, use incredibly offensive language in public, take performance enhancing drugs and in at least one case even commit murder. Well, finally the money behind football has had enough. 

Major advertisers are threatening to cancel multi-million dollar contracts if owners and administrators don't properly discipline players. 

You can bet there will be a new focus on player's behavior when it starts to hit their pocketbooks. 

Football is the same as politics, just follow the money.
