    High school is over, Bolling. Get over it. You’re the one who looks deranged for equating jocks with psychopathy.

    It doesn’t help when some American Football players act like stereotypical high school jocks or gangsters.

    Way to go Ruben baby!! Finally one (other than Lucky Ducky) that I truly love. Jimmy Wittinson always intrigues me, how he can play on 5 different teams and always stay the rookie with a torn acl.

    Pretty risky taunting the NFL mega-church. It’s followers are fanatics. HOW BRAVE! p.s. that last bit’s a twofor.

    I would agree that the Redskins should change their name.

    I don’t mind the commentary on team names, but smearing the reputations of the vast majority of professional and semi-professional athletes who are law abiding decent people because of the actions of small handful is, dare I say it, the action of a bigot.

    It would have been a far more trenchant commentary would have attacked the team owners (who are responsible for the names of teams) who routinely block changes to the rules of play that cause high rates of concussions and long term injuries to players.

    Also, Bolling, your white privilege is showing when you dog whistle about athletes.

    Humor is observational and right now there are four issues related to the NFL that are quite prevalent in the news: murder, bullying, concussions and team names. It’s not as if Mr. Bolling just pulled these ideas out of thin air. The reputations of the law-abiding majority of athletes has already suffered thanks to the actions of that minority that is spoofed here.

    Football is way too macho. I understand the game and used to watch it, but the seem to be hired for their ruthlessness.
    Maybe they Need a Ruth or two.

    I think Snyder should change the team name to the Washington Whiteskins. That way you can still use the term “Skins”, Or " Crackers when they are losing. This way no one would be offended because it is not possible to be racist against White folks

    Why is this comic not under the Editorial section?

    TheGunrunnerRimbaud, your comments strike me as deranged.

    Yeah, I bet most of them are good people. However, as a group they have a reputation for getting away with murder, because enough of them do, because the bad ones aren’t held accountable.

    If pro athletes players want to improve their reputation, they should push for the convictions of the bad actors in their own ranks. They have a bad reputation in part because they get away scot-free for their misdeeds. If the bad actors are punished properly, there’s a chance they’d clean up their act.
