The emperor has no clothes! Hypocrisy runs rampant in the streets of the NFL! Roger Goodell has a flamethrower in his right hand, an Uzi in his left and a black banana over his face! He’s an outlaw! A crook! A thug! He’s killing the neighborhood!
Vontaze Burfict has been suspended 5 games for this hit:
The problem with this, of course, it that the hit was legal by every stretch of the imagination. ESPN’s top NFL writer, Bill Barnwell, even agrees that Burfict shouldn’t be suspended at all, let alone for five games.
A this point, the NFL is Whose Line Is It Anyway? and Goodell is Drew Carey, everything’s made up and the points don’t matter. First Brady, then Zeke, now Burfict. Who will be next? He seems to have an insatiable craving for suspending his stars. Boo this man! Booooooooo!
Burfict is appealing the suspension and the Bengals are backing him, here’s to hoping it gets lifted. The general consensus on Twitter is that it should.
