Head Hunting

I am going to have to strongly disagree with the growing chorus of people calling for a bounty on Tom Brady in light of the way the Patriots are beating teams this year. Isn’t a bit unseemly for prominent sports columnists like Mike Wilbon to air this kind of thing? We’re basically talking about crippling a man because your team got its bell rung. It’s a god damn GAME people. It’s all fine and good to whine about running up the score, but the score is not being run up ON YOU. Unless you’re down on the field getting strafed by the Pats, you really ought not to take it so personally. Besides, the players are supposed to be professionals; if they are getting abused between the lines, there’s something they can do directly to address that: they can play better.
