Classless Acts

Despite the insipid [observations] of the more effeminate, football (American football, if you insist) is not meant to be a barbaric sport.  Granted, the opposing teams go out there to knock the snot out of each other until the whistle blows, but it is supposed to be done with good sportsmanship being foremost in mind.

No, this is not to deny that there have always been some dirty players and coaches involved.  In fact, the head football coach when I was going to high school would “suggest” that if the player across the line from you got knocked-out of the game, it would stand to reason that his replacement wouldn’t be as good, but this sort of thing was rarely openly spoken of.

Much has changed since.  For when Jim Harbaugh, the head coach of the [San Francisco 49ers], blatantly disrespected Jim Schwartz, the head coach of the [Detroit Lions] last Sunday, which is shown in the first video below, far too many did not see a problem, which is well represented in the second video.

Yes, just to make what you already probably think is an absolutely ridiculous thing to write about even more so, I am compelled to add that this is another clear example of our Heavenly Father withdrawing His goodness [Hosea 4:6].  For a great outrage should have erupted in the sports world over a 45 year-old head coach acting like a coked-up street punk, and the last two videos below display other classless acts that have gone largely unnoticed by those who have the power to help reign in this madness before it gets way out-of-hand.

So violence OUTSIDE of the game (like a quick knee to the groin) is wrong, yet during the actual game itself it's completely fine to tackle a man to the ground and plunge his face bloodily into the mud, simply because he holds a little ball?

Well, we want that ball, see.

Thanks for stopping by again, my dear John!!! Hopefully, Lavender will listen to you more than me. (Well, at least on this matter. No, there's no use getting carried away here.)
