Jeff Hart: Friday Linkfest for April 6, 2012
By: Jeff Hart | Posted: April 06, 2012
By now, you’ve probably psyched yourself up for the morning commute with the Gregg Williams pre-49ers audio, but in case you haven’t, here it is. I never apologize for shoulder-blocking pedestrians on my way to get coffee – that’s the kind of athlete I am. Where’s my money, Greggers?
There’s been no shortage of fallout since the Williams audio dropped. For starters, is there a difference between Williams’ rhetoric and the kind of mindset that had the Giants targeting concussion prone Kyle Williams?
Then there’s the reaction of the players, summarized best by a pair of safeties. Bernard Pollard of the kinda intense Baltimore Ravens defense is worried that Roger Goodell is turning the NFL into a flag football league. Meanwhile, knock-out artist Donte Whitner finds the Gregg Williams approach disgusting. And so, the great debate over how hard grown men should try to hurt each other continues.
Tired of the all the bounty talk and ready for a new scandal? Then it might be time to start paying attention to college football where there’s a doozy developing in Arkansas. Mayhem, motorcycles, and maybe mistresses!
Track & Field – now there’s a sport where nobody’s trying to kill somebody else’s head. It’s also a sport where you can, if you’re DeAngelo Hall, put up a $100K wager to race an Olympian for his gold medal. Too bad Hall chickened out.
Speaking of guys with good foot speed, how come no team has tried to steal Mike Wallace away from the cash-strapped Steelers? Maybe because his asking price is like 50 gold medals.
Oh man, with all that scandal talk I almost forgot to mention Kim Kardashian’s attempted seduction of Jeremy Lin that was thwarted by super-friend Tim Tebow. Fictional scandals are a lot more fun, aren’t they?
