RI: The NFL Looks for Gang Signs
 
There continues to be nothing on the Favre-to-DC front, but this is an intriguing read. The NFL is reviewing videotapes for signs of players making gang signs. You guys watch a lot of fubball; is this a problem? Back to Favre patrol.

I dont think its a problem now. Goodell is all about the league's public image. IMO it serves no purpose letting the media know they are checking for this except to improve/maintain a positive public perception.

***And whats this about Favre? I have been locked in a closet for the past 3 weeks. Seriously though, I love Favre, but time to go away old man.

I think this...

is Shockey's way of flashing his gang's signs. "What gang might that be?" you ask...

How about you invite a member from each gang to stand on the sidelines (don't let them see each other, of course). That should have a chilling effect.

[QUOTE=firstdown;457287]I have seen player do these finger signs which I thought looked like stuff you see gangs do but was not sure. If you watch any MTV you know the signs and I think its one of the right things for the NFL to eliminate. Maybe they could train the Ref's to all the gang signs and call a 15 yard penalty for any infraction. The Ref would throw the flag show the sign the player made then which gang it was associated to then walk off the 15 yards.[/QUOTE]The problem is, who is to say what's a gesture to a friend/family member/fraternity/deceased loved one vs. a gang sign?

For instance, this might look like a gang sign to someone who doesn't know any better:

But it's actually a gesture for McNair's college fraternity.

Seems to me that brining this to light publically is sorta dumb. I had no idea that players were flashing gang signs and really doubt it is all that prevalent. For just casual fans I bet they now think it is some major problem. I might have done this more quietly.

Darnerian McCants was famous for throwing up signs when he was here.

I know this isn't the NFL, but there is some shit going on in the NBA with Paul Pierce (my favorite player). He threw up a blood sign during a game to the opposing bench. Here is the link......[url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PGAPpfrf4fk]YouTube - Paul Pierce Hits up Al Horford With the B in Game 3[/url]
