Todd McNair, who played running back for Kansas City Chiefs from 1989 to 1996, "was twice convicted on charges related to mistreatment of dogs in the 1990s." And you know what? Our very own Bruins Nation scooped everyone else on the story. The following is from the Wizard of Odds coverage:
On March 30, 1996, McNair was charged with cruelty to animals, failure to obtain licenses and keeping animals for the purpose of fighting on his property in East Greenwich, N.J. Animal control officers found up to 22 pit bulls, including 17 adults and five puppies.
Wow. This story is still spreading around the Internet and the traditional media. The original diary breaking the story is here. Congrats to the Bruins Nation community for their hard work.
Granted, this story probably doesn't mean much without the Michael Vick plea a few days ago. Still, its fun to see a UCLA blog possibly shake up the staff of the USC football team.
