With the coarsening of political discourse under fire, now the NFL is warning against trash talking in sport. The league's chief disciplinarian has put out a warning, especially against threats of violence.
Are we getting too sensitive ? Does this mean we can't crack jokes about Rex's foot fetish or Brady's haircut ? Will team spirit and spirited jobs prompt the most unstable among us to do the inthinkable ?
Are military metaphors to be banned from football?
Seems like expecting dignity and decorum from people recruited to beat up on each other is expecting a bit much...
The trash talk will diminish when the JETS crush those SOBs from Boston this afternoon.
