I'm not big on rooting for someone to fail - every one of us has shortcomings enough to keep us off the soapbox for very long. And when a person constructively employs a second chance, I try not to be cynical; rehabilitation and change take a lot of effort. But Dallas offering TO $10 million up front after his despicable, ego-oriented behavior in SF and Philadelphia, brazenly encourages the lowest of motives. Blinded by a fantasy, Jerry Jones has enabled the TO monster for another session; the absurd belief that TO can put his team into the SB has clouded the rational and moral judgement of Jones and the entire Cowboys organization. Anyone with half a brain can look at this transaction and firmly state that money rules over any other guidance the NFL society suggests to maintain. Personal responsibilty, teamwork, dedication, subjagation of the one for the many - all of these supposedly core ideals are obliterated by the TO signing. The fact that TO didn't have to sign for the minimum meant enough other teams were invloved to erode any sense of collective moral decency, or social oversight, the NFL ever had. Such events make me worry that America is diminished by the making of profit such an all consuming goal that we forgo all meaningful values in its name, certainly the NFL is. BTW, MoLewisRocks has an exceptional post in the earlier TO thread.
