NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell feigned ignorance about how the NFL actually works and suspended New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Peyton for a year for his involvement in Bounty- Gate. Bounty- Gate would be the revelation that defensive players for the Saints could earn a little extra scratch per game by "taking out" or getting huge hits against opposing players. In other words, players could earn extra money by doing their job. Ben put it best; you can pay them millions of dollars to smash other people, but you can't pay them $20 to do the same thing. Oh well. This is one of those deals where Goodell has to play stupid and make an example because the truth is that EVERY team does the same thing... the Saints just got caught. Whether you agree with the terms of the suspension or not, all of us know someone we'd like to 'suspend' for a year. Could be your significant other, your boss, your neighbor, whoever. Today's question: IN YOUR PERSONAL CIRCLE, WHO WOULD YOU SUSPEND FOR A YEAR AND WHY?
Here's a sample of some of the day's answers:
Would suspend his friend from all geek- related activities for a year... or until he gets a girlfriend... whichever comes first
Wants to suspend his friend who is always talks about being 'depressed' (attention whore), has no job yet finds a way to smoke weed all the time
Wants to suspend the new guitar player in his metal band ("Inside the Gates")... not because he's not a good player, but because his name is BRIAN ADAMS!!! Not very metal
His wife... so he could have fun for a year
His co-worker who pisses and moans about everything, including, but not limited to, the smell of warm potatoes (???), people who type too loud, people who whisper, etc. She's worked there 30 years
Would suspend his buddy Moosejaw (yes, Moosejaw) who is a "grown- ass man" but talks "way too much" about dinosaurs and Legos. WTF???
Wants to suspend his very good friend who proposed to a girl two years ago, she said yes, and then cancelled the wedding 2 weeks before the big day. He stayed with her and proposed again... and she said yes again and cancelled THAT wedding the day before. He's still with her. Then he found a text conversation between her and a co- worker that read something to the effect of "I love you and want to be with you". He's still with her. This guy is the definition of a 'f**king idiot'
Wants to suspend her friend who introduced her to her current boyfriend... you'd think she'd be gracious, but it seems that her friend also shared a bunch of secrets with the boyfriend
His father... dude is 60 years old and works 14 hours a day, 6 days a week and never takes time off... just wants his father to relax. I don't know the guy, but I'm assuming that he has a wife at home that he doesn't like dealing with and going to work IS his relaxation. Just saying'.
Would ban his buddy Jon for inviting him to a co-ed baby- shower... come on, man! Guys don't enjoy baby showers. We don't. We never have. We never will. Is this really news?
OK bitches, time for me to go. For those of you who keep coming to trivia, thanks and what's up!
Until tomorrow, don't force my hand when my eyes are wide open and STAY BEAUTIFUL!"
