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.
