5 Knocks Of Common Sense

Sometimes this world has a major deficiency of practicality. Dumb things are done, said and thought of every second. When these moronic moments occur in the football world it is time for a knock of Common Sense Football to the heads of the day’s screw ups.

Knock 1.)
The NFL Marketing team
Putting up posters all over Denver to promote the kickoff game is one thing. Putting posters featuring Denver’s new arch enemy Joe Flacco thats a whole new ball game. The posters have created chaos. One attention craved Denver sports radio personality ( who will not be named- don’t feed the beast ) put duct tape over the Joe Flacco posters. Fans are upset in Denver. The kickoff is already hyped up, it will be sold out no matter what poster you put up. The NFL is silly for its use of these posters and they need a Knock of Common Sense!
Knock 2.)
Broncos fans must get over the posters. They should not be offended. It was a dumb marketing campaign but it was about the game. It was not about Joe Flacco. The fact that Denver is offended is an insult to everyone’s intelligence. They have no perspective. Baltimore is the defending champions of the football world. It is an 8 year tradition that the champions host the kick off game. The Ravens are the first team to not be given this honor. Denver, if you’re mad about a couple posters… You have no perspective!
Knock 3.)
Texas A&M, NCAA come on man! The university suspended their star quarterback for 1 half! 1 half against a team they should beat easily anyway on Saturday? Manziel Is one of college footballs biggest stars and he barely gets punished? He accepted money for autographs. Last time I checked he broke NCAA rules; and was facing a year penalty! What an unbelievable lack of accountability.
Knock 4.)
The NCAA the “non profit” governing body of college sports…is full of shit! There really is no other way to say it. The NCAA has too many rules. The realm of college sports is completely murky. When you look for trouble you find it. Honestly if someone wanted to give me thousands for my John Hancock you better believe I’d do it. Anyone would. The rule traps college students. If you are going to have a magnitude of dumb rules it is hard to take the NCAA seriously. Then the stupid rule is enforced with a minor slap on the wrist? I don’t care what happens next to Manziel, this is stupid. When will college football say the hell with the NCAA and govern itself?
5.)
Bob Kraft one of the better owners in the NFL needs to shut up. He is now “rooting” for Timothy Tebow to make the team? He is the third string quarterback and should be treated accordingly. I wish every bubble player to make the team would get the support Tebow does. What a publicity grab by Kraft… He needs to shut up on this one.
