I’m beginning to think there’s something terribly wrong with my favorite game   -   and it doesn’t seem to be getting better  --

Nfl commissioner roger goodell suspends 4 players for the saints bounty program    …    saints linebacker jonathan vilma gets the entire season off   ….  And waaaaaay too many people continue to argue the punishment is too harsh   ----
 
Really  ??    I mean  --  really ?    the saints were told on 3 occasions to stop the bounty program and they kept doing it   …    I DON’T THINK THE PUNISHMENT IS HARSH ENOUGH  ----   that’s why when you get 1 speeding ticket it’s a fine   …   you get a bunch of ‘em   …   you lose your license  …   and you lose your license not for the last one   …   but for continuing to speed when they told you to slow down
 
Trust me  -    I know
 
But in a game that is becoming too vicious   …   where players are dealing with brain injuries long after they stop playing   ….    Where players get hurt when no one’s trying to hurt ‘em   …   what the saints did deserves at least the penalties they’re getting
 
Former chargers linebacker junior seau apparently kills himself Wednesday morning   …   the 8th player on that chargers ’95 super bowl team to die before the age of 45    …   think about that   …   8 players who were great athletes   …   in great shape   ….   All dead before they celebrate their 45th birthday
 
Coincidence ??     I think not   ---   
 
There’s something wrong with my favorite game   …   and arguing about roger goodell’s attempts to fix it  -   at least reign it in a little bit  --   is almost as dumb as what the saints did in the 1st place
