Welcome to football’s silly season.
The games are footnotes to history. The players are scattered across the continent. Some have too much time. Some have too much money. And, for a few, it adds up to way too much trouble.
So far nobody has shot themselves in the foot like Plaxico Burress but, hey, the off-season is young and Kenny Britt is just warming up.
He spent the weekend detained by police after hauling a friend with stab wounds into a hospital ward.
His lawyer says it’s all a misunderstanding. But, then, isn’t it always.
This is the ninth time Britt has been involved in a “misunderstanding” with the law.
