It is worth remembering, however — in the wake of another high-profile domestic violence incident involving now-former Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt that exploded over the weekend — that the idea that NFL players are prone to criminal behavior is decidedly, definitely not true. A 2014 FiveThirtyEight study showed NFL players, when compared to men aged 25–29 in the country on the whole, are dramatically less likely to commit crimes, particularly drug-related, DUI, burglary, and assault charges.

The League has attracted perhaps the most love from the Hollywood community, playing host to a plethora of cameos, including Seth Rogen as a porn director, Jeff Goldblum as Ruxin’s father, and Allison Williams as a Pete paramour, to name just a few. The Daily Beast sat down with the cast of The League—save Lajoie, who was busy celebrating Canadian Thanksgiving—at PH-D at the Dream Hotel in New York for an amusing discussion about … [Read more...] about ‘The League’ Roundtable: The Cast Dishes on the Funniest Show You’re Not Watching

It was a nightmare." … [Read more...] about Rare company: The 16 who have attended every Super Bowl
