NFL: Turn angst into a positive

Riled up over Monday’s NFL call? Here’s an idea: Every time you feel your stomach churn, take out a dollar and put it on the table. In a short time you’ll have a stack of bills. Put these in an envelope, put a stamp on it, and address it to your favorite homeless shelter.

A child might sleep with a full stomach and a roof over her head because of you. And the great and glorious game of football will go on.

    Not exactly a reply to the letter – as I don’t see altruism tied to being a bit upset over NFL refs.

    But speaking to the issue about NFL replacement refs….there is one group that is even more incompetent, in areas that affect our daily lives, AND we, not NFL owners, have the power to change.

    sandhills you make a good point. that our power is in our vote every 2 or 4 years.

    as far as NFL refs: Having been a huge fan of NFL football as far back as I can remember, these refs are doing nothing different, better or worse than other refs all these years. They get some calls right, some wrong and make judgement calls based on their best understanding of the rules: judgement calls that will never please the party on the losing side.

    The difference is that now, we have 100 million armchair referees at home, on talk radio, TV and twitter, chiming in their 2 cents ad nauseum and hyping the issues.

    hey, sounds just like politics today….LOL.

    This is the first letter I’ve read that isn’t a continuation of the Seahawk’s long shrill whine about their pathetic Superbowl loss. How many of the 12th Man are justifying their Fail Mary victory with the statement, “This is payback for the SB.” Good God, get over it already, Seattle!
