Super Bowl XLV Morality Play?

Jason Whitlock of Fox Sports wrote this great article on the Super Bowl and the quality of the Packers Organization and what it may mean to the future of other teams and the CBA. He highlights how the Packers attention to the very character of the athletes helped them win in the end versus a mercenary get the best player regardless of attitude approach.

I wholeheartedly agree with Whitlock that if the Players want half of the income and to be paid like CEOs they need to step up and act like owners and leaders of an organization. Whether they like it or not, everyone of them is a public representative of their company – their team – and they are beholden to put forth the image that team and the league wants. Besides, again whether they like it or not, they have turned into and will be from now on people that others – especially youth – will look up to. In that case they hold a responsibility to try to be someone that they can look up to. Yes we all make mistakes but we have control over the situations we put ourselves into and that is the problem athletes have.

Just say NO. Don’t go there.
