The NFL Never Disappoints, Does It?

Those football "fans" out there who dislike the Minnesota Vikings in general, or Randy Moss in particular, have new grist for their grinding jaws. Once again, the NFL gave it's seal of approval to the lad by fining him a whopping $5,000.00 for his pantomime 'mooning' of the fans at Green Bay (and all watching on TV) last weekend.

Back in December I wrote about a head-high tackle that cost one player $75,000 and the other several days in hospital hoping to get all the use of his limbs back. In the last day of the regular season, another player got fined the same amount for launching himself as a helmet-first missle at an opponent's head.

Terence Jeffrey at TownHall has his take on some of this. Personally I think he misses the bigger picture. In recent years the number of convicted criminals has risen in professional football, while respect for the fans - either ticket buyers or the greater watching public at home - went out of the game with Johnny U's high tops and crew cut. They can mouth all the right platitudes, but if the contract is a dollar short or all the demands aren't 100% given, they are GONE!

Players move, teams move - ask someone from Cleveland about the Rams, or someone my age from Chicago about the Cardinals - the NFL has never been about fan loyalty. Hell, the Chicago Bears moved there from Decatur after only a year or so after the league was formed!

Like I said once before, the professional sports in America are good for a giggle, but always keep in mind that there ain't a damn thing happening in it that's going to affect your paycheck.

I agree,

I love Football. and recently I have bought stock in it. Not like real stock on Wall street, but a stock market that is strictly for sports.

You have seen it? Its pretty cool. You buy issues for your favorite teams and you make real money. Not like a fake stock simulator. I cash out Dividends each time the team wins. Also I can sell my team stock when the price goes up.

Keep up the good work on your blog!
