Kill The Redskins

I mean this metaphorically, of course. The problem is, they don't.

Threatening to hit an injured man, intentionally, on his injury, is cruel, evil, and pathetic. It would be pathetic enough to say, "I hope Romo plays, because an injured quarterback is easier to intercept and otherwise keep from winning the game." This would in essence be admitting that you are really too afraid to face your foe strength to strength. It says you are depending on the other person's weakness to help you win the game, rather than your own prowess.

But think of how much more pathetic it is to say that you are aiming at your opponent's injury. Really? We all understand that if you play, people have to try to tackle you. No problem there. And they cant go pussyfooting around the place where you are injured, no matter how honorable that might seem. No problem there. But any decent human hopes that, in the process of doing their job and beating the other team, they don't hurt anybody. 

Any decent person, even if they may in a their heart of hearts hope that the other guy's injury will slow him down and make the game easier to win, does not hope that the other guy gets slammed in a vulnerable spot and seriously injured. Any decent person would, if they knew ahead of time that this would happen during the game, say, "Boy, I wish he didn't play, so that I didn't have to be the one to hurt him."

Now turn to the words of the Redskin who says, "I hope he plays, and I hope he plays injured, because I'm going to put my helmet on him right where his injury is." Turn to the words of the same player who talks about fights that continue after the play is over--fights whose only goal is not to win a football game, but to injure and maim. This guy is not a competitor. He is a sociopath, and he needs to be institutionalized as such, not allowed out on the field. I had to post this because I couldn't believe no one was commenting on it. If you can find the exact words (I heard it on the radio while driving), please chime in.
