LEAGUE EXECS TUTORED ON SIGNS OF GANG ACTIVITY

Among the topics that were presented to front-office types during the recently-concluded NFL Annual Meeting in Phoenix was a session on how to spot potential gang activity in the locker room.

Seriously.

Per a league source, NFL execs received specific information on the signs of gang activity, apparently so that action can be taken before any criminal conduct results.

To date, there has been little or no evidence to suggest that the recent rash of arrests has been tied in any way to gangs.  But since NFL players come from a somewhat broad range of backgrounds and experiences, the presence of actual or former gang members on a team shouldn't come as a shock.

Meanwhile, if the league wants to discourage that kind of stuff it might be a good idea to keep guys like Snoop Dogg off of NFL Network.  Mr. Dogg is a former member of the Crips.  (And a devoted fan of at least 37 NFL franchises.)

No, Snoop Dogg has been a devoted fan of at least 37 NFL franchises.

This doesn't surprise me in the least.  Flashing signs should be the least of their worries.  There are some gang activities they should be very concerned about.  Think about Nate Newton's side job and consider the amount of money these players make.  I'd be surprised if some players are not financing criminal activity.

Like black market sneakers?
I think that was a Charger thing though...

Snoop Dogg still is claming crip also, you can hear it in his lyrics. I would not be surprised if some of the NFL stars are not connected to crime in some way. The "streets" are getting worse by the day, the same streets PacMan Jones and etc... are running around with guns and beating up stripers.

Gangs...hmmm, maybe Pacman or Tank could shed some light on this?

Snoop Dogg is the shiz, he always talking about his crip blue six fo. He still is a crip,just not a gang banger anymore. Now,Maurice Clarrett was messing with Wok,and ended up in jail.
