NoC sports editor Troy Lyle was going to follow up his “Disillusioned with the NFL” piece this week but decided to crawl into the bottom of a bottle of Laphroiag instead, leaving me holding the bag. Here are my thoughts based on our observations following yesterday’s day of football.
While gleefully watching the systematic dismemberment last evening of what was once known as the Dallas Cowboys at the hands of the Packers, a recurring conversation between Lyle and myself once again percolated.
“How could you subject me to this god-awful white washing?” he asked me about halfway through the second quarter. “You know that I’ve basically waved the white flag on my football fandom after the stunt that invalid Shanahan pulled last week against Detroit.”
