THE NFL SCANDALS vs POLITICS/GOV IN THE U.S.


Deflategate, as it is called by the mainstream media has been getting a lot of press.  Several press conferences with quarterback Tom Brady and coach Bill Belichick of the New England Patriots have been held as well as owner Robert Kraft.  It has been an issue on the news and a huge issue on sports news and programs, particularly talk shows.  Whether the investigation finds that there was cheating by releasing air from the footballs by the Pats or not, much attention has been drawn towards the team and the NFL.   Fans that have a dislike for the Patriots, and there are many, keep the conversation moving and are screaming CHEATERS, especially with the biggest game of the season on Sunday.

Benghazi, should get so much attention and concern.   How is it, our political scandals and government official’s misconduct and corruption can’t compare to what happens in the NFL.   I know there are diehard fans.  We should be so lucky to have diehard citizens, with as much interest keeping politics (government) clean as the National Football League.  You would think, We the People would hold the government and politicians more accountable.   We expect our professional sports teams to play by the rules.   We throw a flag when they don’t and we scream when we feel our team has been treated unfairly. The winner of the Superbowl is not as important as the winner of the next presidential election.   We will survive no matter who wins THE GAME,  whether they did fairly or not.   We don’t want or need cheating in the NFL, MLB or NHL……..we don’t want that taught to our children, but we’d survive.   We must be more concerned with who we put in the big house at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue this next time.  We’ve had enough lies and corruption.  That is about our children and grandchildren’s future. 

We don’t need any repeat offenders in the White House.   Go ahead read between the lines, you know who I am talking about, they’re a team of their own.   The media could do well to cover the garbage that goes on in Washington, no not the Redskins, as they do the sports world.

Enjoy the game.
