Stopped watching the NFL and cancelled my Sunday Ticket over this mess.

As of next season 15 yard penitaly, turns out it was hurting their bottom line.   What a shock.

Too little...too late.

Making a move this far after the fact shows a band-aid mentality and removes all genuineness and sincerity in my humble opinion.
"Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined...The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able might have a gun."~Patrick Henry

For the Patriots of this country, the Constitution is second only to the Bible for most. For those who love this country, but do not share my personal beliefs, it is their Bible. To them nothing comes before the Constitution of these United States of America. For this we are all labeled potential terrorists. ~ Dean Garrison

"When it comes to the enemy, just because they ain't pullin' a trigger, doesn't mean they ain't totin' ammo for those that are."~PegLeg

"We are far out on a limb......the wind is blowing, people have saws....and the tree is old." ~ PegLeg

It does stink of, "let's see how this flies and then adjust our policy."

Several years ago the Minnesota Vikings hired a head coach named Les Steckel.  Les followed Bud Grant, and brought with him the same work ethic and professionalism that many of the great coaches carried.  However, he lasted less than a season, and the team brought Bud back for a short period.

Bud Grant, upon his return to retirement, stated that the players had changed, and that he could not coach in the current atmosphere.

Bud would start each season and each practice with "the basics."  He also included the National Anthem in practice every week:  Standing at straight and erect, along the sideline (can't remember if it was heels or toes on the line), heels together with toes angled out, helmet under one arm (I can't recall hand on hear or not), and looking up at the flag.  No talking, no swaying, no gum chewing, etc.

Team sports are just like the military:  There are no individuals, and everything everybody does is for the good of the team.
If I appear taller than other men it is because I am standing on the shoulders of others.

If you work for me and represent my brand (whatever that might be at the time) I certainly have a right to expect you to not bring dishonor to the brand.   

This includes what you do, say and post on social media as well as how you look and act when representing the brand.   And the more "public" the brand, especially in entertainment (sports), then the more you're "on."  You're representing that brand 24/7.

It's not just about putting the go-zin-ta into the right widget, or blocking a blitzer, or catching a hail Mary, or getting the load to its destination on time.  It's about representing the brand.   You're the 3rd assistant pencil pusher in an administrative office and nobody outside your cubicle knows who you work for, then feel free to act stupid outside of work.   But if you're part of the face of the brand, then suck it up or find another job.
