Why, I can smile, and murder while I smile,
And cry 'Content' to that which grieves my heart,
And wet my cheeks with artificial tears,
And frame my face to all occasions.
I can add colours to the chameleon,
Change shapes with Proteus for advantages,
And set the murderous Machiavel to school.
Can I do this, and cannot get a crown?
Just an observation...
Whenever some sports figure does something wrong, there's always a bunch of people who come to their defense by offering names of other sports figures who have committed more egregious acts. The end result of that logic stream is that no one can really be told they've done something which makes them unworthy of the privilege of playing that sport unless what they've done is so vile that nothing else compares ...and at this point, short of murder everything else seems to be easy enough for some to casually dismiss it with "but so-and-so did this..."
Personally, I'd like to see sports cleaned up. I blame the owners' greed more than the players for why it's gotten as bad as it is. At any time, the owners collectively could have said "This is the line, cross it and your out." But bad publicity is as effective as good publicity for putting butts in seats, so greed trumps pretty much anything else. But this is America and here, greed is a virtue.
I believe any man's finest hour - his greatest fulfillment to all he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle...Victorious
Compared to what many in his sport have done his offense was relatively minor and will be quickly forgotton. This is todays big media story there will be a new one next week, just ask Mike Pouncey.
People can get on their high horse and call for him to be sacked and demand the sport to be cleaned up but The first time he catches a pass for a big gain or a td all will be forgiven, he messed up, he was a prat, he didnt kill anyone and his life and carrer will go on, the NFL forgives all when you are useful to it.
Difference Makers dolphins should target in draft:
Eric Ebron (TE) North Carolina
Zack Martin (G) Notre Dame
Calvin Pryor (S) Louisville
Mike Evans (WR) Texas A&M
Brandin Cooks (WR) Oregon State
Lache Seastrunk (RB) Baylor
