Ed Reed, Baltimore Ravens safety, who was involved in the slide play by Tom Brady in Sunday's AFC Championship Game doesn't believe Brady is dirty. Reed said he and Brady had communicated about the play and are cool now. “It’s a tough spot the quarterback’s in,” Reed said on WJZ radio Monday night. “You know, I understand Brady’s point. Him protecting himself. I know he’s a great player. I respect Brady and his game for all it stands for, and I know he’s not a dirty player."

No, he was fined due to political correctness, the chickification of the sport and rise of feminism in America. Pro football is fast becoming flag football. If that's the way you like it, well, enjoy. Will they take away his three rings and five SB appearances that make him the greatest QB of his era to play the game?

Now here's a fine we can all support:

NFL fines 49'ers player $10,000

I like dirty players..

From Butkus trying to twist your head off and Deacon Jones head slapping you in the ear hole..
to Jack Tatum knocking out a reciever, and of coarse Mike "Mad Dog" Curtis lying out the Drunken Fan. And who could ever forget one of my all-time favorites Conrad Dobler! Back when it was a real game, football was about Intemidation! Football has lost its toughness where the players on the field decide the game, NOT a bunch of ticky tack pass interference calls or some stupid "don't touch the QB call"

The passing game is the worst part, Just letting these recievers run virtually untouched. Its no wonder why even the average NFL qb is able to throw for 3-4 thousand yard every year.

When you lay the wood like Doug Plank and Chuck Cecil did to those recievers coming across the middle they'll think twice about it the next time and thats where Intimidation gains you the advantage in the game. The gladiator/warrior aspect is all but lost in today's climate controled game.

In the immortal words of the great Al Davis

"In the first quarter the opposing quarterback must go down, and he must go down hard"

That Brady Slide? Please, thats modern day cream puff stuff. Hell nobody even got hurt! Now that guy who got knocked out! Thats Football! Im surprised they didn't call a penelty on that.

What a sissified game it has become when the biggest "dirty Play" of the game is Tom Brady's slide.

I think a Mean Joe Greene elbow to the head is in order here.

I am excited about football sucking so bad. A chance for Baseball to get back America's game status.
