    Wow, I knew Meggett was a scumbag, but I didn't know just how much of a scumbag until I read this article:

    Meggett follows NFL path of imprisoned father

    Sounds like this kid has a really good head on his shoulders and won't make the same mistakes his dad made. Then again, it sounds like Dave is his father in biological terms only so there wasn't a lot of influence there anyway.

    Back in the day - spring of 1998 - I stumbled upon a sports memorabilia store that was having a going out of business sale and found a white Meggett jersey for 10 bucks. (Or maybe 20, can't remember for sure. Either way it was super cheap.) Literally two days later the story broke about him smacking around that prostitute in Canada. I have never worn that jersey. I've tried it on at home once or twice but I won't wear it.

    WTF?!

    I had just presumed this guy had slowly slithered into obscurity following the sordid business of having ripped off a prostitute following their liaison. UGH!

    No and in a way, I wish I didn't. What a loser.

    Dave Meggett was an admirable football player, which made it shocking how despicable a person he was.

    It sounds as if his biological son has benefited a little from the first (name recognition, major football figures calling to check in on him, perhaps a little advice straight from Dave, etc.). He may even have benefited from the second (if you have some of those genes, don't mess around with your impulse control).
