So I have heard a lot of people complaining about how Sergio Kindle parties a lot. Personally I have no problem with this. As long as they aren't doing anything stupid like driving home or getting into fights then there is really no issue. Players party all the time but you don't always here about it. Young guys like Kindle who aren't married nor have any kids have a lot more free time.

As long as he isn't showing up to practice drunk or late then he can do what he wants with his free time. Just because he isn't playing well doesn't mean he needs to sit in a corner and cry all night. You are only young once so let him have his fun. Going out and partying doesn't really affect his play and is very common in people and players his age who don't have families.

He likely was but understandably he can't remember. It's a shame, such a strong pick at the time.

I'm sure someone would know. Was it even proved he was out that night?

I heard rumours he sleep walks as well.

I think he is just fighting too many lingering issues from that head injury to ever be the player we hoped for when we drafted him. I wish him the best, but I hate to say that I think his time is coming to a slow end here.

What are the odds? Might as well forbid them from driving, since they might get in an accident.

He was at home when it happened. There is no proof he was drunk as no alcohol was found in his system (which they usually test for). It's more likely than not that he wasn't drunk or it would have been proven through someone saying he was or tests. He doesn't remember because of the severity of the injury which is unerstandable. The commonly reported part was that he was sleep walking or that since it was so dark he couldn't see and tripped.

There seems like no reason he would need to go down the steps anyways.

This is the honest truth. These guys can't just shut down their lives. If nobody took risks we would never leave our houses. There is a line between living your life and staying safe that Kindle and most players do not cross.

Kindle has a history of drinking and has gotten a DUI while here, I think these guys need to learn to phone a friend or call a cab.

I was about to say, someone with epilepsy playing football... you're just asking for trouble. My brother-in-law has epilepsy and he can hardly bend over, let alone run 40-yards or tackle someone at full sprint.

I'm not certain he was even tested for alcohol when he fell. As it did not involve driving nor any other person, he very well might not have been. As for "assuming" he was drinking when he fell, well, when you make poor decisions (and they seem to involve alcohol) that does happen.
Whether or not the fall was the result of alcohol or not, he has had more than one incident.

"Kindle, the Ravens' first draft pick in 2010, fell down a stairwell at a friend's house three days before training camp opened and suffered a skull fracture that has sidelined him for the year and jeopardized his career. He had been arrested in a drunken-driving case while in college in 2007 and crashed his car into a building in 2009, an accident he blamed on driving while sending text messages. Kindle is on the nonfootball injury list and can take part in physical therapy with the Ravens but cannot participate in football activities."

He was arrested for drunk driving after falling down those stairs where he tested for twice the legal limit.

I'm fine with straight partying, but hasn't Sergio gotten a DWI and had to go to some correctional facility or something? That's a little more than just partying....
