When is accurate purity not a necessity?
The NFL has been criticized for its recent decision to allow players to play in the AFC Championship game, despite a recent ruling that said it was against the rule.
“I believe there’s a strong case that it’s a necessity to have a purer system in order to play football,” Saints coach Sean Payton said during his weekly radio interview on SiriusXM NFL Radio, according to the New York Times.
When the NFL decided to allow the game to go forward, many people took to social media to express their displeasure.
Some said the league had a moral obligation to allow more players in the game and they wondered if the NFL could actually improve its game in the meantime.
The NFL’s decision has created a lot of controversy, particularly on social media.
The league had already been in the news recently when former NFL star Michael Strahan called for an end to the league’s use of a blood test to measure player blood-alcohol levels after he and others were arrested during a protest over police brutality.
In the wake of the Saints decision, some people took a look at the NFL’s past practices and whether they are still necessary.
It’s also not clear whether the league will change its rules in the future, as it’s only allowed to change its rule in the last three years.
