New York Giants David Diehl Apologizes

New York Giants offensive tackle David Diehl is said to be "very remorseful" about his arrest for DWI over the weekend. Diehl did issue an apology via his Twitter account.

Ralph Vacchiano of the Daily reported today that Diehl is likely to face a fine, but not a suspension.

Interestingly, Pro Football Talk today said that the NFL has been trying for years to increase penalties for players arrested for driving drunk. PFT says it has been told the players union has been resistant.

As far as the Diehl incident, this is the first trouble Diehl has been in throughout his career. Obviously, it is no joke. Let's hope, though, that it was an isolated incident.
