The NFL said that the study unfairly included criminal incidents in college and that there arrest rate is no different from any other group. According to the actually numbers, the arrest rate in the NFL is smaller than most other groups.
Benedict claims that 40 percent of NBA players have criminal records. He had to back off of those claims after NBA commissioner David Stern protested the book. Benedict later admitted that he used incomplete data to come up with his figure. Out of the 450 NBA players, he was only able to get information on 177 of them.
So we really don't know.
