This has got to end … and quickly! Look, we get it; free agency in sports has caused all of our favorite gladiators to become ‘boys. Problem is this is happening both off and ON the field. Couple that with wussification rules across the board and it’s no wonder that we yearn for the battles of yesteryear.
Never again will we see the great Larry Bird and Dr. J throwing hands at each other or Chuck Bednarik standing over Frank Gifford saying “this fucking game is OVER” (and not coincidentally Mr. Kathy Lee’s playing career as well). Instead, we get the love-fest shown below. After a very hard hitting and emotional game last night, the Cowboy fans are treated to this???!! Look, primatomma realizes this is commonplace in soccer, but what’s next? Feigning injuries like futbol’s “warriors” so as to induce a red card? (Or is it green card? Having a hard time finding any soccer fans in the office).
After spending $100 on tickets, $50 on parking, and $200 on concessions, you’d think our vitriol for the enemy would be shared by those pocketing our cash. It’s not. So wise up and realize these guys are mostly making business decisions. The more they cozy up off the field the less likely they’ll be hammered on the field. And that sucks for all of us.
Zeke Elliott and OBJ, for continuing this annoying jersey swap trend, you two are now primatomma #ZIP award recipients.
