Over the last few years there have been plenty of complaints from fans and players alike that the NFL is starting to go soft on us. Not only are you not allowed to shoot up strip clubs anymore — damn you, Roger Goodell! — but you can’t kill anybody on the field either. It’s a tough situation. Players and fans want there to be more violence, while the commissioner and the owners want to protect those players and their investments. Surely there has to be a happy medium between the two sides, and there is only one man who can find it.
Yes, that man is Da Coach, Mike Ditka. Iron Mike was at his alma mater, the University of Pittsburgh, on Wednesday and he let his feelings be known on the subject.
