We New Englanders have it good when it come to football. We have Tom Brady and Bill Belichick. They are among the greatest ever on their own, but together (and with a cast of supporting characters) they have built a dynasty that modern football has never seen. The Belichick system is so good, that any player can be plugged in and it’s just going to all work out.
- 4 game ban for Tom Brady? No problem. 3-1 through those first 4 games.
- Go 5-1 in the division and 11-1 in the conference? Sure, we’ll trot our way to yet another Super Bowl appearance.
- Down 28-3 with 2 minutes left in the 3rd quarter at the Super Bowl? Time to humiliate Atlanta right into the record books.
Football is a spectacularly entertaining sport – especially with emotional roller coasters like Super Bowl 51. However, the medical evidence in combination with the NFL actively avoiding any acknowledgement or responsibility for CTE means that I cannot in good conscious be a fan.
The NFL and team owners making millions upon millions of dollars on the backs of players whose lives are irrevocably changed for the worse is barbaric and morally abhorrent.
I will not watch any longer.
