The flow of National Football League players being suspended for domestic assault incidents is in danger of turning into a tsunami of bad news for the teams.

And as one team after another has to deal with losing a prominent player, it raises a question: how many teams have players on their team who are in this kind of trouble and that the teams are hiding with fingers crossed that they don’t lose a player to some kind of suspension?

The pressure to win in the NFL is, with just a 16-game season, incredible. Teams have to put up with injuries that can be seriously harmful to any roster or game plan.

Losing another player -- be it because domestic abuse charges, or drug charges or some other kind of miscreant behavior -- is a frightening prospect team.

I’m not saying it’s happening, but I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised to find a team or two hiding a troubling incident with the hope of keeping the player playing and the certain firestorm of media at bay.

He's seen Milwaukee grow, suffer pangs of growth, strive for success and has been involved in many efforts to both shape and re-shape the city. He's a happy man, now that he's quit playing golf, and enjoys music, his children and grandchildren and the myriad of sports in this state. He loves great food and hates bullies and people who think they are smarter than everyone else.

This whole Internet thing continues to baffle him, but he's willing to play the game as long as keeps lending him a helping hand. He is constantly amazed that just a few dedicated people can provide so much news and information to a hungry public.

Despite some opinions to the contrary, Dave likes most stuff. But he is a skeptic who constantly wonders about the world around him. So many questions, so few answers.
