Question of the Day — 9/20/05

Issue: Hall set to return for home opener: Boise State defender permitted to play despite felony charge in fatal crash/Chadd Cripe, Idaho Statesman

DFO: I’ve had it up to here with star athletes getting second and third chances. This guy was part of a high-speed chase that resulted in a crash that killed a Boise area couple and there young child. He’s lucky he’s not facing vehicular manslaughter charges. He should have been suspended until a judge or jury determined his guilt in the felony leaving the scene of an accident charge.

Question: Am I being too harsh? Should Cam Hall get a second chance to play football from Boise State this season? Do star athletes get too many chances?
