I love college football, but I don’t follow the NFL much because it seems the pros have lost their passion for the game. They play for the bucks now, and oftentimes, they’re just overpaid babies.
Case in point, yesterday, the Minnesota Vikings and the Dallas Cowboys played for a chance to move forward to the Super Bowl. Minnesota owned Dallas–it was 17 to 3 at half-time. Defensively, Dallas improved somewhat in the 3rd quarter, holding the Vikings scoreless, but early in the 4th, the Vikes pulled ahead 27-3.
After that, Dallas just seemed to give up. I don’t think they gained 20 yards in the next 8 plays! They started pouting and stopped playing.
Fast forward to about 2 mins left in the game. It’s 4th down and 3, and Favre throws a TD pass and one of the Cowboy players gets his panties all in a wad about it and runs over to the Viking bench and yells at Favre and the coaches for ‘running up the score.’
“I thought it was totally classless and disrespectful. This is the NFL, that’s not what this is about. I don’t think there’s a place for that … I was looking for [Vikings coach Brad] Childress. I didn’t think it was right, but they’ve got to see us next year.
Dude. Did you hear yourself? It’s the NFL, not pee wee football. If you don’t want them to run the score up…PLAY SOME FREAKING DEFENSE AND STOP THEM! Are you seriously whining? Aren’t you supposed to be a grown-ass man?
Oh wait. You’re an overpaid baby. Yup. This is exactly why I don’t follow the NFL. Hope you had some cheese with that whine…
