Just to bring everyone up to speed, these are the headlines from the past week in the NFL:
- – Cedric Benson was pepper sprayed and arrested for operating a boat under the influence (you know you’re drunk when you’re resisting arrest in the middle of a lake… Where were you going to go Cedric?)
- – Marvin Harrison is being “questioned” about a shooting where the evidence is so stacked against the Colts’ receiver its a miracle he hasn’t been charged yet.
- – And, of course, there is more silliness from the Pacman Jones saga as the gunmen is trying to claim that Jones ordered the whole thing to go down.
But fear not! Emmitt Smith is here to make sense of it all. The master of morality, the king of Kantian ethics, the… guy in gold shoes apparently stopped by Cowboys camp to set things straight. I would try to summarize, but ESPN pretty much nailed it with their headling “Emmitt stops by Cowboys camp, advises Pacman to make [and they quote] ‘better choices’.”
Well, “better choices” is kind of vague guys. Care to clear that up in the first two graphs of your story?
“As long as you’re not killing anybody, getting anybody shot at and going to jail, then I don’t have any issues,” said Smith, NFL career rushing leader. The former star running back for Dallas was visiting Cowboys rookie minicamp Saturday.
Ahh, that’s better. So the three commandments of the NFL according to Emmitt: Thou shalt not kill, thou shalt not get thy neighbor shot, thou shalt not go to jail.
However, thine drug trafficking, human trafficking, brothel, and rape…. Thy league shall looketh the other way.
