Prevalence of Primadonnas in sports/Downfall of the NFL
BtB inspired me to get into more of the other parts of the board, so i will do just that.
Somethign has been bothering me significantly lately, and its pretty much going to be strictly NFL examples, since it is what im msot familiar with. But why has the game gotten to the point that great players are often overshadowed by their louder, "whinier" couterparts.
You have Brett Favre, overshadowing other players in the league with his shit, Randy Moss taking plays off, and they get away with it.
Then you have players like James Harrison, playing the game HARD and hitting hard, getting fined. if the NFL is trying to make it a safer, more marketable game, i would be hard presses to see not fining those who do what Moss does, what TO does and play half speed, half assed.
"Before the Beginning, after the great war between Heaven and Hell, God created the Earth and gave dominion over it to the crafty ape he called Man. And to each generation was born a Creature of Light and a Creature of Darkness... and great armies clashed by night in the ancient war between good and evil. There was magic then. Nobility. And unimaginable cruelty. And so it was until the day that a false sun exploded over Trinity, and man forever traded away wonder for reason."
