They're too smart to fine players for something like that. No way they would've done it, for this is one case where the consequences outweigh the benefits.

Why? It isn't a national holiday. It is observed, yeah, but it isn't a holiday like July 4th, etc. Besides, if you were to mourn, you should wear black. You should be remembering the people that were lost that day, not doing the rah, rah, rah USA USA stuff. That is what we did with Pearl Harbor, remembered those who lost their lives after the war was over. We didn't cheapen it to a national lovefest.

I tend to agree with you Gus. It is a day of remembrance. It should not be anything other than that. It was a terrible day in our nations history.

True. Maybe I'm just cynical, I hate that I already know that at least 30 min of the pregame shows are going to have some stupid piece on 9/11. It's not that I don't care, it's just that I don't like sports and politics to mix.

In my opinion sports should be an escape from real life not a reminder of it. I was in the pentagon parking lot that day an I lost some friends in the world trade center. I'm going to remember for the rest of my life. I don't need my escape to be a constant reminder.

What does 9/11 have to do with politics?

I could put about 20 pages here, but I don't want to turn this into something else. I'll leave it at I don't want pregame shows to be about anything other than football. I don't want to hear about Katrina every time the saints play, the economy, or about anything else . I like sports to be sports.

If players want to wear something patriotic I'm all for it, glad that aren't going to be fined.

Kudos to the NFL for doing the right thing. Sometimes they can be total asshats about stuff like this, but they got it right this time.

Not sure who's on Twitter, but Adam Carriker just posted an awsome tweet about remembering 911, prayers for the families, and leaving it all on the field tomorrow for country and team. A few other Skins seemed really psyched too.

Might as well mandate something for Pearl Harbor, Vietnam, War War II, Korean War, Iraq War I & II.


Breast cancer is a ongoing battle, and claims more lives a year than 9/11 did. That's just one year. Don't compare the two please. I know you guys are all emotional about this, but think.
