The NFL is Straight Garbage and this is Why!

If you follow me on twitter, and you should @BDSlider, then you know my continuing disillusion with the NFL.  This league is a mess and they know it.  A league whose Commissioner and Owners have gotten accustomed to printing money and are scared to death of losing this money train due to decreasing youth participation and the PC police.  So what has this league has done in the past few years to address these issues?

  • Pointless PSAs they don’t believe in.
  • Play dress up with their players in attempt to trick women in believing they care about them.

  • Change the rules and punishments whenever they want to make them appear to be ahead to the game on social issues and violence. 

This last point is the one I want to focus on today.  Full disclosure, I am a Bengals fan and have been since birth.  Also for the record I have been wanting the Bengals to cut Burfict and Adam Jones for the past two seasons because I don’t feel you can win in the playoffs with guys you can not count on mentally.

With that said I show you this clip…

 

Now the PC police are running out in groves saying in their best nerd voice, how according to the new rules a receiver running a pass route is a defenseless player when the defender approaches from the side or behind. If the receiver becomes a blocker or assumes a blocking posture, he is no longer a defenseless player.

Sweet Jesus!  What the hell are we talking about here people?  Look, is Burfict a dick?  YES!  Does he have a history?  YES!  Will he probably do this again?  Of course!  But aren’t they still playing football?

Burfict was not coming from the full back’s side nor looking to destroy the guy.  If Burfict wanted to hurt him trust me, he would have.  He steps up and leans into the guy leading with his shoulder and the back get knocked off his feet.  Nothing more nothing less.

Aren’t you taught as a receiver coming out of the backfield and within 5 years of the line of scrimmage to keep your head up and watch for this?  They teach that in CYO for the love of God but now we have to baby full backs.  You get that right, he was a full back!  And because of this hit Burfict is facing a 5 game suspension.  What a crock of shit.

I love football but I can not stand the NFL.  If it wasn’t for the Bengals I wouldn’t care if the league folded.  I honestly do not remember the last time I watched a non Cincy game from start to finish and that includes Super Bowls.  If they keep this shit up I will not be the only one.  Being a husband and father of 4 girls I can only squeeze in so much football in these fall weekends and for me the choice is a simple one, Saturday > Sunday.

Give me college football everyday over the NFL.  You can keep your clown of a commish, your social causes and rule book that cause officials to start guessing on the field.  I’ll stick with Saturdays.
