No one should be kicked while down. No matter how unlikable. It’s a bad look for whomever is doing the kicking. And, it’s unethical. And right now, the NFL is down. Although they put themselves there, the NFL is down, and so we won’t kick them. Sigh.
A new sheriff is in town, and 11 Pac-12 football officials are out of a job.
The poor sports official. We pejoratively yell “come on, BLUE!” or “you’re just GIVING them points” or “you’re missing a GREAT GAME, ref,” and so on.
But they have a tough and essential job. Without the official, we have no sport worth watching. The elite athletes and coaches want to Win. They are not trained to be concerned with Fairness. They pay passing lip service to the antiquated notion of Sportsmanship. The player/coach mission is Achievement. Their game is the pursuit of Success.
