Point / Counterpoint

Tuesday Morning Quarterback:
"[H]ere's why the affair matters: If a big American institution such as the NFL is not being honest with the public about a subject as minor, in the scheme of things, as the Super Bowl, how can we expect American government and business to be honest with the public about what really matters?"

Gregg, you ignorant slut:
"But you can't hold a whole fraternity responsible for the behavior of a few, sick twisted individuals. For if you do, then shouldn't we blame the whole fraternity system? And if the whole fraternity system is guilty, then isn't this an indictment of our educational institutions in general? I put it to you, Greg[g] - isn't this an indictment of our entire American society? Well, you can do whatever you want to us, but I for one am not going to stand here and listen to you badmouth the United States of America. Gentlemen!"

Well, I'm pretty sure that those guys are closely following the NFL for standards of ethical behavior. I can imagine Ken Lay having had a moment of conscience as he holds a bloody knife over a prostrate investor before he muttered, "oh, what the fuck, Bill Belichick is filming his opponent's sidelines."
