And don’t even get me started on the fines/suspensions of healthy players who visited a restaurant or didn’t wear a mask or during the season.
Note: the Ray Rice suspension eventually was increased, but only after video emerged of Rice hitting and dragging his knocked-out-cold girlfriend off an elevator. Beaten women–ho hum, whatever. Bad PR look for the NFL–OUTRAGE!

Random Thoughts of the Day
If you play fantasy football, you’ve likely noticed that 100+ players have recently tested positive for Covid, requiring each player to miss 1 or more games, despite the fact the vast majority of cases are asymptomatic. The rest have very light symptoms that go away quickly. I hate to point out the obvious, but why the hell is it so bad to spread an asympomatic infection to some of the healthiest, cardiovascular-strong men on the planet? I’m not a scientist, but my understanding of vaccines (at least pre-mRNA ones) is that a weakened form of the infection is introduced into the bloodstream, prompting an immune response which creates antibodies to protect the person from future infection. Wouldn’t allowing a relatively harmless Omicron strain to spread among these healthy young men accomplish the same effect; in other words, a sort of natural vaccine?
And these are tough NFL pros! They regularly play through sprained ankles, bruises, back pain, broken fingers, and so on. In pre-Covid days, while following fantasy football news, I can think of 100s of times players had a cold or flu during the week. I can’t think of a single time the affected player didn’t suit up on Sunday. Imagine you’re one of these players who’s worked his entire life to reach the postseason & Superbowl, then be forced to sit out with asymptomatic Covid…all because you play for a pack of cowardly, PC pussies too gutless to state the obvious.
As for the relatively harmless Omicron strain, I believe the same kind of thinking needs to be applied to the general population. Omicron might be a gift–an easy way to naturally build Covid antibodies in a large enough portion of the population to achieve herd immunity and end all this nonsense. Instead, we know the powers that be have complete tunnel vision. No matter what the stats, new research, and common sense tell us, they absolutely CANNOT admit they were wrong. Vaccine and mask mandates are the ONLY solution–a totalitarian boot stomping on your face forever.
Linebacker Reuben Foster is arrested for domestic violence, threats, assault weapon possession. Running back Lesean McCoy beats the crap out of his kids, dog, and ex-girlfriend. Cornerback Brandon Browner is charged with four felony charges including attempted murder of his ex-girlfriend. Countless other domestic violence incidents add up. NFL Players Association: We are filing a grievance against the policy that forces our spoiled millionaires to stand for 2 minutes during the national anthem, as it’s clearly the number one critical issue we must face.
