Lol, you guys are funny.
Seriously though, this is a great opportunity to teach kids what not to do. We shouldn't try to hide or forget about this one (as much as we all would like to). Maybe putting a sticker on the helmet may be going to far, but kids of all ages should learn from this disaster of a mistake and we should all hope it never happens again.
Well I will take a different tack and give your idea some creedence 2LT
no not a helmet sticker which is for tributes but a visual is a lot stronger often times than words or symbols...they showed the rookies at the Rokkie Symposium watching the Hernandez situation on tv including when he was in court as the charges were being read-and the ones they interviewed and the coaches there said it made an impact
it would not be to bad an idea for every NFL team to have a picture of Hernandez in the locker room...maybe also in the gym in the hallways in between-that would be a constant reminder, everyday, every time they pass it
If every MLB locker room posts the rules against gambling and a quote by Bowie Kuhnas to why it is the ultimate sin against the game, if teams from high school to college to the pros can have signs that say things like "Play Like A Champion Today" etc....and photos of all time greats and all that stuff, why can't this be in every NFL locker room? Doesn't need any words or saying or anything other than his picture-I really think that would be appropriate and it would be the strongest reminder to players-especially the rookies coming from the mean streets, etc...-of what can happen even if you have the world in your hands
Well said 42. I agree that the sticker idea was pretty bad. I really cannot believe what has happened with Hernandez over the past 2 weeks.
He went from being part of potentially the best 2 TE set of all time to a serial killer thug loser in the span of 2 weeks. It really is shocking
