Past DUIs don't keep Stabler from selling wine

In 1995, former Raiders QB Kenny Stabler was arrested on DUI charges. In 2001, he was arrested on DUI charges again. And in 2008, he hit the trifecta, getting arrested one last time on a DUI charge (on this last one, though, he was acquitted).

Thus, it makes perfect sense that Stabler – a four-time Pro Bowler who was the league’s MVP in 1974 – is launching a collection of Chilean wines, labeled “12” (as in, the number he wore in the league).

The Birmingham News asked him if his past transgressions with alcohol make this an inappropriate venture (for the record, part of the $11.99 charged for a bottle goes to the XOXO Stabler Foundation, which supports a variety of children’s charities).

"No, not at all," he said. "It's all about our foundation. … "I didn't ship a thousand cases in here to drink.”

Fair enough. More from the story:

"I wanted to celebrate the teams that I played on," Stabler said. "I've been so fortunate to play on great teams."

Stabler's Legend Cellars partnered with Anderson Estate Wines of Santiago, Chile, to produce his wine, which is being marketed with the tagline, "Celebrate your success."

The wine, which includes three reds and two whites, got high marks from wine lover Andrew Coleman, a Birmingham lawyer who attended the Overton & Vine tasting.

"I love it, and I knew I would," Coleman said. "I'm familiar with the Anderson Estates label, and I love Chilean wine."

There might possibly be under no circumstances actually a better evaluate of what any one is than what he does when he's entirely cost-free to make a decision on.

Boy, the snake sure looks like he could use a face lift...the former Raiders, Oiers and Saints QB perhaps has a drinking problem and maybe some of the money donated from the Chilean wine can go to his rehab or the rehab of others. Nice that hehas a lot of children's charities, but he should try and be a better role model. I think he should grow that scraggly old beard back.
