    When’s the days without an arrest meeting getting reset? First Haynesworth, now Macklin, still 4 days without an arrest?

    Shame, seems like a good guy.
    Macklin runs a foundation named 27 Reasons (27 is his college and professional number) which aids underprivileged kids in Arizona and Virginia.

    I’m from Newport News, so I can answer your question. Newport News was once a great place to live until section 8 housing came along and with that, thugs and scum. Even the police are mostly scum.
    What’s wrong with the pro athletes from Newport News? The same thing that’s wrong with most of the section 8 youth. Stupidity.
