After watching all of the hype and ridiculous nonsense regarding the upcoming Super Bowl I have decided that I can no longer stomach all of this thuggish trash talking. I really wish the league would put a gag order on these loudmouths who can't open said mouths wtihout coming off like a street thug. This hip-hop...ghetto...antisocial attitude in pro sports has got to stop. I am glad I don't have kids to have to explain all of this to. Can't any of these guys ever show respect to a fellow professional at the top of their game, or are they now bigger than the game? I grew up playing sports my entire life...from football to bowling to baseball to martial arts and in all of them the first thing I was taught was respect for my opponent. I coached all of my little league teams this way and all of my kids and some of their parents thanked me for it. The shame is that the media will denounce this type of behaviour but a minute later incite the very same thing. Oh well, perhaps I am silly and naive....more's the pity.
Sorry for the rant. maybe I am getting old (I am 44).
