    NFL pisses me off with their decisions sometimes. They wouldnt let Peyton Manning honor Johnny Unitas when he passed away by wearing black cleats. Peyton played for the freakin colts but their logic was that it wasnt a Baltimore team. So the freakin Ravens who were the Cleveland Browns, neither a team Unitas played for get to honor Johnny U?

    Or how they fine players $25,000 and give 15 yard penalties (actual in game penalty) for end zone celebrations but only $25,000 and 2 game suspensions for Drug Trafficing?

    NFL is way beyond fucked up in its disciplinary decisions.

    All I can guess is that it's the NFLs' pitiful attempt at being PC. Gotta keep the anti-war people watching football. :lame2:

    It's about uniformity. Uniform. Team. It's about keeping people from wearing pictures of their dead cats on their helmets.

    Ludicrous. Nothing at all wrong with the "40" decal. Very tasteful and should be allowed.

    So adjust--make a rule that allows anybody to honor someone with a small round decal

    Or dont be so beuracratical. Just grant permission to those cases that you wish. Its your league. You dont have to be fair to everyone and allow dead cats to be honored. Do it on a case by case basis. Plummer wants to honor his old teammate let him and anyone else who feels the need to do so do it. Take other cases as new and decide it with no precedent.

    That'll be fine too--(maybe they're just too lazy to make a lot of decisions) :thup:
