    Actually, to be honest, this is probably why men like sports, because it's not so p.c. and equal.

    If football becomes, P.C. I'll puke. He says soccer is P.C. yeah right! I played for 8 years (ten if you count junior high school team). And it is NOT the hippie sport everyone thinks it is.

    Sports and capitalism aren't even close to being the same thing. On the field there isn't such thing as structural racism (well...at least not any more. There USED to be, like when referees would turn a blind eye to the unsportsmanlike abuse that blacks endured during games).

    Oh...and structural racism is just ONE of the many inherent inequalities in our society. Apples and oranges, gentleman. Apples and oranges.

    I'm no fan of "P.C." either, but people always over-generalize what it means.

    This post will be locked before midnight.

    Someone here will not be able to contain them self, and this is going to turn into a political left or right wing sermon.

    That's not fair, RP. Intelligent discussion doesn't have to come from the far left or far right.

    In any case, I don't want to start anything. I'll delete my post if it makes you guys happy. We'll leave it to football discussion. Apologizes for taking it to the next level.

    Intelligent discussion comes from Greg Jennings. If Greg Jennings never said it, it's wrong.

    evad04- Your post is just fine my friend.

    I am just having some fun, about people, all people. Any topic that has even a political or religious thread inter-twined eventually goes down in flames.

    I have a policy... I have enacted in my life. Never discuss politics or religion with anyone I have not known for at least a year.

    Article makes a valid point.

    Pass some of them INTs off to other players. Oh yeah, Brett should probably get some more rushing TDs under the shared system.

    Not a bad policy. I guess I bend the rule on the internet, but maybe that's a bad idea. In any case, I think the real answer is (as stated)--Greg Jennings.

    Go Pack go.

    I think this author has read Ayn Rand once or a thousand times. Funny inclusion of the "20th Century Motor Company" which also has a role in "Atlas Shrugged".
