Protecting the Shield . . . My A$$!

“Protect the Shield!”  Well, once again Sheriff Goodell has demonstrated that his empty battle cry embarrasses the NFL shield as much as the Tin Star he wears on his chest!

 

Let’s see, he has fined players for uniform violations, end zone celebrations, not wearing a microphone, flipping the bird . . . and then suspended players and coaches for NCAA violations that were not committed “under the NFL Shield” . . . and has even suspended assistant coaches for using drugs under the care of a doctor for quality of life issues.

 

Oh, and let’s not forget the massive fines levied under the guise of “protecting the players”, new penalties and rules that totally confuse referees and turn the game of NFL football into a glorified “7 on 7” flag football contest.

 

But let two head coaches acting like 5th grade banty roosters, full of testosterone during school recess, put on a disgracefully immature show after a game and the NFL simply wants to “sweep it under the rug” because they promised “never to do it again”!  My gawd almighty, the ghosts of Curly Lambeau, George Halas, Paul Brown, Vince Lombardi, Tom Landry, not to mention the still alive Don Shula, Chuck Noll, . . . I think you know where I’m going with this . . . cannot put a combined spit shine on the now tarnished “NFL Shield” that will remove this lack of sportsmanship.

 

There are a number of things I can accept from players . . . they are all prima donnas who have had everything given to them throughout their playing careers, not to mention totally embarrassing sums of money; however, their leaders should be adult enough to represent the team in a distinguished manner.
