Now is as good a time as any for a lil’ bit of pride.
The NFL is a morally questionable organization at best. They have gone out of their way to alienate a whole lot of people over the past decade and the news of their racist practices toward Black players seeking compensation for head injuries is downright deplorable. However, the NFL is a corporate entity that is made of human beings, the men who suit up on Sundays, Mondays, and Thursdays to give their all to the fans and to their teammates. Yesterday, something very human happened in the NFL and we hope that they don’t exploit it in an attempt to aerosol their ongoing failure to treat people properly.
