As the draft nears, football fans from around the world will look up potential players on the NFL’s website in search of on-field stats, strengths and weaknesses, and analysts thoughts on guys who may be a staple on their favorite team for years to come.

So, please tell me why this is the first sentence of’s profile of Northern Illinois safety Jimmy Ward?


Has a child. Prepped in Alabama. As a true freshman in 2010, he logged 21 tackles, one pass breakup and zero interceptions with one forced fumble and a school-record three blocked punts.

What does the fact that this young man has a child have to do with football?   Will having a child prevent him from excelling in the sport?  Why doesn’t this football  profile highlight his on-field accomplishments first?

This definitely seems like a shady attempt at a character assault and should be changed immediately.

    Bro Jimmy Ward isnt the only one with this. Look at Josh Brown’s of Pitt State, or Henry Josey of Mizzou, James Wilder FSU etc, those NFL scouts are clowns.
