Directly following Hannah Storm’s tearful commentary on Sportscenter, the panel on NFL Countdown led right into the very same topics. The big difference was the tone of the discussion, especially coming from Cris Carter.
Carter managed to bring his own personal life into the discussion, bringing up a point that I’ve heard quite a bit over the past few days. Just because your parents used punishment doesn’t mean you have to. You learn from their mistakes.
I still think it’s a big deal to hear this kind of thing from ESPN. Normally they hold the line on the side of the NFL and to see them actually question what’s going on is quite the moment.
