NFL: Matt Leinart's Party Blown Out of Proportion

C. J. KrasykCorrespondent IApril 3, 2008

By now I am sure that you have heard about the party that Matt Leinart had over the weekend. Which leads to me so say, 'Who gives a rat's behind?"

I really think that there is too much being made of this. We are talking about 24-year-old. All the girls look to be of the proper age to be there. Big deal that he is using a beer bong and having a good time with some friends.

I am almost 24 and can tell you from experience that is what happens at parties thrown by people in their 20's. Its the offseason and I am sure that Leinart is working out and getting ready for the upcoming season.

The only reason that this is huge news is because Leinart is a big name star and because of the Pacman Jones stuff. This is a non-issue and will be forgot about by the time training camp rolls around.

The only thing that makes me mad about this is Coach Whisenhunt decided to throw his two cents into it. Saying that it "disappointed him" hearing the news. The only part of it that should disappoint him is that someone sold the pictures to the websites so that people like ESPN could run coverage and debate this subject to death. 

Most athletes go out and party or even throw parties at their houses. Yet only some are criticized for it.

Gilbert Arenas threw a huge birthday party for himself in Washington, D. C. just hours after a home game and nothing negative was said about that. But Matt Leinart throws a party in the offseason with some friends and gets nothing but negative press.

Just in case you might have missed that Arenas's party came after a game in the MIDDLE of the season and Leinart's party was in the middle of the OFFSEASON!!!!

So like I said at the beginning "who cares?" It was a dead issue when it came out. There is no reason to even debate and question it.
