It's a different set of rules, and a different skill set for each. Throwing to Alge Crumpler in man-to-man coverage is one thing. Ignoring drug laws because you're young, rich, and "above the rules" (or because you were never taught the consequences) is quite another.
Flip the argument for a minute: would a guy who makes bad judgements on the football field be apt to make bad decisions in real life? No.
