We are in week three of the regular season and the big talk surrounding the NFL doesn't have anything to do with the actual game. When people talk football nowadays they commonly use the names Rice, Goodell, Gordon, Sam and now Peterson. We are not talking about the great plays made on the field, instead we are talking about what these guys are doing off the field.
These players are all involved in topics that need to be discussed, but with the exception of Michael Sam, they don't deserve all this attention that they are getting. The media needs to just move on and worry about football. We as fans deserve to see highlights when we turn on Sports Center or the local sports channel, not another press conference about a guy saying he's sorry and won't do it again. Let's be real he'll probably do it again anyway. So on behalf of the average NFL fan I say "Let's just play football".
