It seems apropos to have read this today. While people cheer what is happening on the field, this is a look at what sometimes happens in the aftermath.

It was the same speech. That commercial is a whole new level of callous/clueless.

Callous clulessness? Because that’s what the rich in power offer us. Let’s not take that offer.

I’m not too familiar with MLK; how angry would he have been about having his words about “serving” played in such a way that they were obviously being conflated with military service?

I’m surprised the “head injury” (concussion) didn’t get brought up more. Not only did they avoid saying concussion, but to avoid showing an unconscious player from being brought out from the game they made a hard cut to commercial.

It even appears that Cooks may have been rocky on his feet before the big hit took him out, probably from a hit earlier in the game or just from the season wearing him down. Running in a circle like that and especially running horizontally like he did it something that is drilled into wide receivers day 1 to avoid injury.

They could use a dye packet on the top of the helmet…?
