So while these deflated shenanigans have been dominating the newscycle for 6 months straight (conveniently during the off-season) The other 55 players have actually been arrested, broken the law (or a jaw) and have only lasted longer in the media spotlight than Ryan Fitzpatrick can last on an apartment lease.

55. There is a full active roster of degenerates and criminals, most of who still have their jobs. But we’ve been exponentially focused and honed in on someone who “may or may not have been possibly involved in allegedly doing something that could have, or could not have happened.

How perfect is it that THAT is the only story we all care about.

Sweep the real bad shit right under the rug.

Well done NFL PR Machine and Roger Goodell.

Sleight of Hand at its best.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
