    It's smart PR.

    I would rather have this fallout than the potential of her going on a concussion rant.

    Hell, even if she didn't, the media of a fatherless daughter crying because the NFL pretty much killed her father is bad enough.

    Heartless, but it's good business.

    I disagree that it's good PR. This decision has potential to blow up in the NFL's face far worse than giving the family a podium at the Hall of Fame induction would.

    This would be a much bigger deal if it hadn't been the HOF policy for deceased inductees for years now.

    A policy 4 years old? I have belts older than that?

    Still, and I'm not one quick to defend the shield, it isn't like they suddenly panicked about what the Seau family might say and suddenly made a rule.

    And I have T-shirts that are 15 years old, so there.

    You can bet both inches of Roger Goodell's dick that if Junior Seau was killed in a small plane delivering humanitarian supplies to Samoa, they would waive the waiting period and waive presenter rules and put the induction ceremony on Sunday Night Football.

    The fact that Godell's employers negligently and with intentional indifference allowed Seau to be slowly killed, led them to this result.

    That's Hall of Fame right there. Take a bow.

    I don't care how big it is, as long as he sticks it to Brady.

    If this is true about the alleged length of the commish's penis, I need to find out where Jane Skinner goes for a cup of coffee.

    Obviously in a corn field next to a bookstore. Duh.

    So, you have players who don't get recognized into the Hall until after their dead.

    Then, you have a rule where no one is his family can speak at the award ceremony.

    Almost makes me think, why even bother then?

    Stupid rule.
