And a Not-so-good Deed…
Arizona Cardinals general manager Steve Keim was cited for driving under the influence on July 4 in Chandler, Arizona. Here is his statement:
“I truly regret my incredibly poor judgment and inexcusable actions. Everyone associated with the NFL and its teams is held to a high standard of behavior and I obviously failed to meet that. I sincerely apologize to our organization and its fans as well as to my family. I accept full responsibility for my actions and hold myself completely accountable. Moving forward, I will take the steps to ensure that I never put myself or the Cardinals in this type of situation again.”
