Tampa Bay Buccaneers Team Official Arrested in Sex Sting Operation
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers just can't seem to avoid making headlines.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have had a tumultuous offseason dealing with Aqib Talib and his off-field escapades, but now the trouble has found its way into the front office.
There is a reason that Commissioner Roger Goodell has come down so hard on the league when committing infractions, and it's because things like this continue to happen regularly.
The Daily Commerical reported on Wednesday morning that 32 men were arrested as part of a sex sting operation, including one official from the football franchise.
The details of the report are absolutely disturbing.
After corresponding with undercover detectives online, the 32 men were arrested -- including an official with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers -- this past week after being accused of trying to engage in sex with children.
I guess it could have been worse, as at least the official didn't find himself on an episode of To Catch A Predator with Chris Hansen, but it's pretty poor judgement.
It's astounding that such high-profile people seem to set themselves up to fall from grace with such regularity, but at this point, nothing that happens off the gridiron surprises me when it comes to the NFL.
Hopefully the next time that the Tampa Bay team decides to pursue a hire in the front office, they run an in-depth background check on the interested candidates.
Clearly, this employee was less than forthright and didn't divulge all of his interests during his interview.
