Wow! What a week in the NFL!
Sports are amazing in this country and around the world for that matter. We build up our celebrities and sports heroes and then rip them down. But sometimes a system needs a wake up call. Athletes have always been treated differently. Because they have a special ability to throw a ball, we give them free items, let them pass through school, and offer them millions of dollars yearly.
Imagine if we lived in a world where teachers, factory workers or nursers were treated the same?
I’m not surprised by the issues of domestic violence going on in the NFL. The athletes are treated like they are above the law and many times the system supports it.
What is surprising is the Americans who are so in the dark about the sport and their real objective. The objective is money. Pure and simple. They are a business and want to get the most out of a person they can.
Sad but true.
