Well there have been 2 confirmed arrests since the last update. NFC west is showing up big this week! Today at 4 pm EDT the free agency signing period begins, some players are about to get paid while some players are about to get handcuffed and we ain’t talking fantasy football drafting.
San Francisco 49ers FB Bruce Miller
-Spousal Battery (Misdemeanor)
Mr. Miller was arrested last week at an undisclosed location for spousal battery charges. Northern California Authorities said yesterday, Monday 3/9/15. Even after all these changes to the 49ers organization, at least one thing has stayed constant, and that’s alleged criminal activity. The team has undoubtedly been a fixture in the Fantasy Crime League about as much they have been for on the field achievements in the past couple of seasons. The team is in general disarray as they have a new coaching staff and as some marquee players have left through retirement and free agency. Look for the 49ers to continue lighting up the fantasy crime scoreboard as their roster takes shape. Since the Ray Rice fiasco, the NFL has a domestic abuse policy and look for Miller to be subject to that policy. 3 points for battery, 1 bonus point since the Goodell bot waved his finger at the players regarding domestic violence. 4 points total.
Arizona Cardinals LB Alex Okafor
-Evading Arrest (Misdemeanor)
– Outstanding Jaywalking Warrant (Misdemeanor )
Well Mr. Okafor returned to his alma mater, University of Texas and had himself a good time until police asked him to get out of the street, but he kept on walking. Austin Police then chased him on foot briefly and charged him with evading arrest after catching him. It was then later noted that he also had a misdemeanor warrant for Jaywalking so he was charged with that too. Well it seems like Mr. Okafor is much better at being in pursuit of people, rather than the other way around. He led a very talented Arizona defense last season with 8 sacks. Sounds like the Arizona linebackers coach now has some fuel to make Okafor do some more speed drills. 2 points for evading arrest, with it counting it as a crime against justice and there’s 1 point for the jaywalking warrant. 3 points total.
As we enter the new league year, it is now a little over a month into the off-season. The Green Bay Packers still lead the league with 10 points, Indianapolis Colts/Baltimore Ravens tied for 3rd with 6 points, The San Francisco 49ers are in 4th place with 4 points and rounding out the leader board are the Arizona Cardinals and Dallas Cowboys both in 6th place with 3 points. The NFC West comes on the scene hot, with 2 arrests.As of 4 pm EDT today, all players who do not have a contract with an NFL team will be considered to be a free agent until they sign a contract with an NFL team, unless they were franchise tagged. Stay tuned to the Fantasy Crime League for your Crime League updates.
