I don't know why, but I wasn't bothered by it at all.

February 12, 2024 09:26AM
I have had to think this morning of why ... because it's everywhere.

I remember thinking back to a game with ... I think Jerry Rice going against Deion Sanders and one play they just started fistfighting relentlessly. Like one hard press pop and Jerry Rice just started throwing hands and they had to be pulled off each other.

I also think about Will Smith at the Oscars. How I wasn't actually bothered by it.

In both cases there was a history at work that most people knew nothing about. In the above cases it was rivalry ... that includes Will Smith. It's not really our business is my feeling. It's not a decision I made about it, of course it shows terribly and we tell our kids "That's not adult behavior and while there is likely a lot more to it, it's never okay to resort to physical interactions" ... but I actually don't care personally.

Kelce and Reid will work it out. They've been together for how long? They're family. It's a family problem. We see it and get all fussy because it was out in the open, as if there isn't a lot like that going on in households all across the country. When we see it, we can talk about it. They have some time to discuss it and get right with each other and make statements.

I see it as an opportunity to have a conversation. Just like with Will Smith at the Oscars. There are consequences obviously and I'd think Kelce would be fined for "conduct unbecoming" or whatever by the NFL or organization ...

So for me the question isn't "Is that level of anger and violence okay" ... it's "why is that level of anger and violence 'normal'" ... then we can get into emotional suppression vs intelligence, parenting, and processing emotion. Then I can sell my self published book to the NFL and go on vacation finally.

Rams4391February 12, 2024 05:16AM

  Definitely a new generation in football

Speed_Kills69February 12, 2024 05:41AM

  I think Kelce should be heavily fined by the Chiefs

six2stack74February 12, 2024 05:48AM

  lol

Speed_Kills58February 12, 2024 06:01AM

  Personally, I think Kelce would be fine with it...(no pun intended).

  So you think this is proper behavior??

  Most people are riled up when they lose control. Hell, Corad Dobler had more self control

  I'M not making it a big deal. I have seen it played no less than a dozen times today.

  Lil Secret. This is a MESSAGE BOARD!

  I would move Kelce this offseason

  I don't know why, but I wasn't bothered by it at all.

alyoshamucci52February 12, 2024 09:26AM

  EXACTLY why it's a problem. Acceptance. Was it a hard core physical act? NO WAY!

Ramgator27February 12, 2024 10:06AM

  My take

waterfield56February 12, 2024 09:28AM

  Not an excuse for lack of self control

Ramgator42February 12, 2024 10:09AM

  Self control ?

waterfield31February 12, 2024 11:24AM

  Boxing is violent. FOOTBALL is violent!

Ramgator31February 12, 2024 11:38AM

  He did not push him

headslapper29February 12, 2024 11:46AM

  You're right. As I watched closer. But still zero need to get in his face that aggressively.

Ramgator20February 12, 2024 11:53AM

  I'm with you on this one, Gator....

JamesJM31February 12, 2024 12:00PM

  You guys are conflating issues

waterfield33February 12, 2024 01:18PM

  Not really...

JamesJM26February 12, 2024 01:41PM

  Re: Not really...

waterfield30February 12, 2024 02:36PM

  I don 't think he meant to bump him.

RockRam33February 12, 2024 12:32PM

  Yup, the bump is irrelevant...

  Reid Srugged it off after the game like it was nothing and probably nothing to him

BerendsenRam18February 12, 2024 01:44PM

  That's what this board is about. Discussion and different opinions.

Ramgator22February 12, 2024 01:54PM

  His post game speech was worse

headslapper35February 12, 2024 02:24PM

  Not the SB but the greatest post game display from a player...
