Nick Fairley Says Sorry Over New Facebook Account

A day after making a new Facebook account, Detroit Lions defensive end comes out and says sorry?  Fairley was arrested for a DUI in May and in April for second-degree possession of marijuana.
Fairley means a lot to the Lions. He could have a big impact like Ndamukong Suh does. While playing in 10 games healthy last season, Fairley had 1 sack and 15 tackles.
 
 
THIS IS WHAT HE POSTED ON FACEBOOK:
After taking some much-needed time to reflect on recent incidents, and after conversations with my advisors, teammates, and members of the Lions organization, I would like to make the following statement:
I want to personally apologize to my fans, teammates and the Detroit Lions organization for bringing this unwanted attention to our team. I recognize my actions were inexcusable and I personally need to uphold the expected standard of behavior of a professional athlete. I do not take for granted this opportunity and feel blessed everyday to play in the NFL.
At this time, I am fully cooperating with the Mobile, Ala. Police Department. I am now focused on moving forward and committing my focus to football. I would like to thank everyone for your concern and understanding.

      thank you for your comment!!

  3. Jeffrey Scheidegger says:

    I think he was sincere in his apology and I don't know what else he can say. We will see if his words hold weight and if does start to get his priorities straight it will help people forget about what happened. At the end of the day everybody is human and makes mistakes and I think he really understands that he needs to start focusing on football and conduct himself in a positive way.

    1. Trevor Uren says:

      Thanks Jeffrey and I totally agree with you on that!

  4. Go Lions 35 yrs strong from the Golden State.
