As always, Few has the right to be presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. That’s our system here, and we should all be thankful for it.
Having said that, if he is guilty of drunk driving, then he’s an absolute idiot.
Mark Few reportedly makes north of $3 million a year to coach the Bulldogs. He can 100% afford an Uber or a driver.
There’s no excuse for anyone to drive drunk, and there’s damn sure no excuse for someone with the money he has. Drunk driving puts everyone on the road at risk.
If you do it, then you 100% deserve whatever punishment might be headed your way.
There isn’t a lot more to say other than 1: Drinking and driving is bad. 2: Yes, he made a mistake. Drinking and driving is still bad. 3: When human beings make mistakes, such as drinking and driving, there are consequences. Mark Few should face those like everyone else does.

Let’s hope Few learns his lesson if he’s guilty and doesn’t ever repeat this mistake.
