ON THE DEATH OF SPORTMANSHIP!

Patriot’s Steven Ridley Takes Devasating Hit During AFC Championship Game

That was the headline. The viewer was cautioned: “Video is disturbing”

Whatever happened to Sportsmanship? This atmosphere of let’s “deliberlately hurt the opposition” which has become pervasive in all sports, has caused me to stop watching them altogether. What a lesson to send to impressionable kids: “If you don’t win, HIT!” Or at the very least throw your hat, helmat, bat, etc. on the grond and holler obscene curses, flinging your arms around like a child in a tantrum. I so mourn the death of fair play!
