We have previously lodged complaints in this forum citing the horrible example athletes like Matt Leinhart, Tom Brady and Brian Urlacher have set for their young fans with their irresponsible lifestyles. Pointedly, about the budding army of illegitimate children the three are mobilizing.
Finally, after months of our shedding attention on this plague, the judicial system is listening to us.
Possibly, Urlacher referring to his child as a "pussy" was the final insult against fatherhood that could not be overlooked.
A judge ordered Urlacher to attend parenting classes.
We applaud this action and commend the judge responsible for mandating that Urlacher at least make an effort to learn the skills necessary to deal with the situation.
Certainly, this is a message being sent to the triumvirate of bare back lovers. Strictly and sternly saying that society will not accept them polluting our environment with their seeds if they are not willing to adequately parent them.
This is a step in the right direction in enforcing the concept of personal responsibility on these particular athletes and their ilk that seem to live life as if they are beyond reproach.
Let's just hope they get the message.
