Quotes from other web resources in regards to Rozier’s case…

…everything comes together to paint the picture of a gun-toting, crazed superhuman.
http://egotvonline.com/2013/06/27/3-nfl-players-convicted-of-murder/

After his NFL days, Rozier fell in with a savage cult. In order to gain admission, he had to kill a “white devil”. Rozier went above and beyond that, slaying and dismembering seven people before getting put in jail for life. Just a special note that when a guy starts killing because a man named Yahwey ben Yahweh convinces him white men are the devil, there might be more at play here than just repeated head trauma.

Rozier said he was mesmerized into violence by Yahweh Ben Yahweh who called himself “God the son of God.” Rozier said he was ordered to kill by “a very intelligent Hannibal Lecter” who claimed he was “God on planet Earth.”

NFL Scandals

-According to accusations from NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, the New Orleans Saints defensive players and coaches operated an illegal bounty system between 2009 and 2011 in which large sums of money were offered to players for knocking a high-profile opponent out of a game with an injury. In an unprecedented move, Goodell suspended Sean Peyton, the head coach of the Saints, for one year, suspended ringleader and former defensive coordinator Gregg Williams indefinitely, suspended New Orleans General Manager Mickey Loomis for eight games, fined the organization $500,000 and stripped the team of two second-round draft picks for the scandal. It gets worse, those penalties don’t even count player fines and suspensions.

-Put 17 stars of the Minnesota Vikings on a pair of houseboats with prostitutes flown in from Atlanta and Florida and nothing bad is sure to happen, right? Wrong. After the players allegedly performed some pretty freaky sexual acts in front of the 90 people aboard the boats in 2005, photos hit the Internet and criminal misdemeanor charges followed. Allegedly, photographs were taken at the party showing people engaging in sexual intercourse. As of December 2005, four of the players have been charged with misdemeanors related to the events.
There were apparently ninety people on the two boats.
Attendance included quarterback Daunte Culpepper, Fred Smoot, Mewelde Moore, Pat Williams, Bryant McKinnie, Nate Burleson, Ralph Brown, Troy Williamson (who was then beginning his rookie season), Travis Taylor, Kevin Williams, Lance Johnstone, Moe Williams, Jermaine Wiggins, and Willie Offord.[

Apologies, outrage, fines and Google searches all followed.
