The NFL offseason (even though we’re currently between preseason and regular season) proves to be nothing by a trap once again. This time, first year Indianapolis Colts strong safety John Boyett - out of the University of Oregon - learned his lesson the hard way.

He is still adjusting to his life as a pro player, which surprisingly entails more responsibilities than one would think. Your list of responsibilities run from making it to practice on time, avoiding murdering anyone and definitely not assaulting the police.

According to the Marlon County jail records, Boyett not only stiff-armed an officer for being too drunk in public early Monday morning, but he swung on him, too. This came after police were called over to an Indianapolis bar that denied the 23-year-old entrance because he was, well, too damn drunk.

But the best part of it all was that during the arrest he kept repeating, “You can’t arrest me, I’m a Colts player.” This would probably work if you were say, Andrew Luck or something. But considering that you’re an unheralded rookie who has somehow managed to make the team’s reserve/non-football injury list, you should probably just shut your big mouth.

Then again, he was sauced out of his mind and is likely feeling like a complete imbecile this morning. This just goes to show you, when you can’t handle your liquor, it could cost you your job in the NFL. Leave this sh*t in college.

Get Started On Your Resolutions: Why You Don’t Need A New Year For A New You

We are lazy people. Let me rephrase that: We have a general inclination towards laziness. There, that’s a little less offensive. However, since there is this general inclination towards laziness, I shouldn’t expect much backlash for being offensive. After all, being offended takes energy; you actually have to do something to express your anger. So, […]

His questionable decision-making extends off […]
