    Now it's about assaulting women, beating up children, shootings and killings, former player lawsuits, strange new debatable penalties and so forth.

    That stuff has always been going on, they just seem to actually care that people are getting killed up and beaten now. Pussification of America :coffee:

    It's teetering on unwatchable on the field. The rest of the crap is a media creation and their failure to do anything competent when questioned is comical.

    Don't forget it's also about marginal players making headlines because of being gay.

    Now that games are over 3 hours, constant whistles and always cut to a commercial just ruins it.

    I watched the Niners game on Sunday, they scored a TD and went to commercial not showing the extra point. Granted the kicker makes those 99% of the time. But it just showed on fucking greedy the NFL is to squeeze in that extra commerical.

    That's the road it's going. There is a reason why I don't watch arena football.

    The NFL is over as we once knew it. They just hired 3 women as executives to oversee domestic issues and how to enact changes to the culture of the players.

    Soon. These two incidents coming to light so closely to each other blew the doors off a bit, but soon enough it will be business as usual.

    They did. It's over Johnny, it's over. Remember when there were no politics in sports? Sports have always been the one place you could go to get away from anything political.

    I can't wait for Anthony Anderson's new show "Black-ish" premiering on ABC this fall. A show about a black family in a white neighborhood trying to remain true to their black roots. Sounds awesome.

    When do we get to see the episode where the fiancé gets punched in the face? Or the episode where the little son is beat up?

    You're confusing that sitcom with the show COPS.
