You'll be throwing the baby out with the bathwater then. For every Pac-Man, there are 4 dozen good guys.Professional athletes are out of control. They're paid way to much money and I for one will boycott their sports and speak out against them at every opportunity I get. I may only be one voice in one small pocket but that is how change is started isn't it.
Inferring that the whole league should be punished due to the transgressions of a few very bad apples is misguided and shortsighted.
A previous poster (sorry for not crediting you by name) had it right. Deterrence works. If there were no cops on the highway, the speed limit would be pointless. If the cops succeed at decreasing accidents, their presence is merited even if a few drivers still insist on speeding.
NFL=Baby, Pac-Man= Bathwater, don't get em confused.
Regarding F. Evans, what he did was stupid, and beligerant, but I too feel this is his 1st offense and he should be given another chance. That said, if coach cuts him I understand why. He's got to be held accountable for his actions just like the rest of us. We all pay the price for our misdeeds, just for some of us the pennance is not quite as public.
