How to Save the NFL in Three Easy Steps

I used to love professional football. Watching the "Red Zone", playing in several different fantasy leagues, - you name it. Not anymore. Sure, I'll still watch part of an occasional game, but the state of the current NFL is not the NFL that I grew up with and enjoyed watching.

The NFL has become so PC oriented it's disgusting. Is Roger Goodell the entire problem. No, but he is a big part of it. It seems to be a case of the inmates running the asylum. The current management of the NFL seem to feel that fielding the best athlete or football player is more important than the integrity of the game. Bonnie Ramthun wrote an article with the above title with 3 excellent suggestions on how the NFL can restore it's place in society as one of America's premier sports. Here are her ideas. Agree or Disagree?


1. The NFL will return to a celebration of America and our military and police forces. They’ll put on pre-game and halftime shows that rival the musical sequences in Captain America. Troops will be honored. The colors will be marched into the stadium with a full military honor guard. The National Anthem will be sung with dignity and pride, and every player on the field will stand with their right hand over their heart. If they don’t, they will be at the curb with their duffle bag within minutes. Do you want to save yourselves, owners? Then kick any ungrateful athlete right out of your beloved sport.

2. The NFL will require each paid athlete to take courses in ethics, history, and finance. Perhaps they were raised in a well-educated home with plenty of books and excellent teachers at school. Most likely they were not. The courses are going to be non-negotiable and if the athlete is illiterate, tutors will be hired by the NFL to teach him to read. Many of these young, brilliant athletes have been shamefully shuffled through the school system without ever learning the tools they need to be good public citizens. In return for their dedication to their sport, the NFL is going to teach them. If they refuse to take these classes, then to the curb with their duffle bag they will go.

3. Athletes will be required to dress professionally off the field and portray themselves as gentlemen. No more slugging women in the face. No more staging dog fights. No more wearing socks showing our police officers as pigs. Perhaps a vicious thug can run faster and catch a football better than anyone else. It won’t matter, because they won’t be in the NFL. The NFL football player will become a role model for young boys and girls across the country, and a source of pride to all fans.

How about the NBA? Or any other organization that sells it's soul for the almighty dollar?

Daisy Cutter will work just as well for a fraction of the cost.

Joe Buck and Troy Aikman on military fly-over during NFL Game.

The costs of flyovers are deducted from the training budget of the branch that takes part, and the time involved does count towards pilots’ training, however limited and simple the flyby may be.
