While I didn’t love your tactics or your game that much, it was a fun way to spend certain times of the year. Now, no more. I hold no illusions that sports figures in North America get away with far too much – they are not always role models the way I would hope that they would be – but this Ray Rice fiasco is too much. That, combined with Adrian Peterson, Plaxico Burress, Michael Vick, RAY LEWIS etc, has pushed me over the edge. There are just too many. Too much bad press, too many role models gone wrong.
So farewell NFL. I’ll be spending my time elsewhere.
