Presenting news and views - often outrageous, always thought-provoking - on a wide variety of topics, usually related in some way to coaching, to leadership, to citizenship.

********** It's been no real news that for some time pro football has been  crossing the line between sports and entertainment. 

The NFL acknowledges as much with its trampy "cheerleaders" and grotesque halftime shows, and winks when its players engage in ridiculous acts of buffoonery.

What we haven't really understood was which line it was crossing, and which type of entertainment it was crossing into.

Now we know.

A vulgar act that once would have been cause for expulsion from a sport, an act that  even now would get a man branded for life as a sexual offender if he were to stand outside an elementary school window and do it, is laughed off by one and all as simply good old Marshawn Lynch, a great fellow and a great teammate, doing his thang.

Just another contribution by  the NFL to the coarsening of our culture.  The late Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan referred to it  as "defining deviancy down."

Enjoy the Super Bowl. I understand they may even play a football game before and after the concert.
