If Ray Rice Doesn’t Condone His Actions, He Did A Terrible Job Of Explaining What Those Actions Were
A lot has been made of the Rams’ drafting of Michael Sam, the first openly gay NFL player. One day we will get to a point where this is neither a big deal nor a news item, and when we do, Sam, the Rams and the NFL can take credit. The NFL has created serious societal goodwill, but being the NFL – the league that was quick to fine players for celebrating in the end zone and slow to fine those that delivered dangerous, crippling hits – they’re doing their best to erode it. And in the case of Ray Rice, the Pro Bowl running back for the Ravens, they might have given it all away.
A video uploaded to YouTube last week showed a man peeing on Art Modell’s grave. That got us thinking about other sports team owners that once held a city’s hearts in his hands – before he crushed them, becoming a hated pariah forever more.
