Jay Mohr Sports / Another Way of Thinking About Irsay

I didn't write this, it comes from

I'm not sure i agree with entirely, but it is interesting, and JJ always say he likes to hear from people that have opposite opinions from his own. I bolded the part where the author quotes Kravitz's article (The indy beat writer who was on the show today)

"Substance addiction is a serious problem, but it isnít a license to be a dangerous asshole. Yet if you believe people like The Indy Starís Bob Kravitz, Irsay neednít even ask for redemption. Itís already come.

[Now comes the wake-up call.

Do you hear it, Jim? Do you hear it? Or do you press the snooze button and continue on this downward spiral?

Thereís no shame. Thereís no embarrassment. Fact is, if Irsay gets the help he needs, heíd be a public beacon for the multitudes who also need help with alcohol and drugs. Just as Chuck Pagano has taken the lead on finding a cure for cancer and more specifically leukemia, Irsay can be a guiding light for those in the grips of addiction.]

Thatís right, Jim Irsay f*cks up and itís immediately framed as his shot to become a hero. Must be nice.

But perhaps Kravitz has adopted a similar tone with players who gotten in trouble while intoxicated? Oh, nope, itís heavy handed derision for them. Take his reaction to Pat McAfeeís 2010 arrest for public intoxication for swimming drunk in a canal:

[Iím supposed to be taking this more seriously. Iím supposed to be body- slamming Phelps ó thatís Indianapolis Colts punter Pat McAfee from now on ó for his drunken, early-morning dip in the Broad Ripple Canal, a body of water that is known as ďthe cityís primary conduit of raw water.Ē

Whatís next, Phelps?

The Love Canal?]

Where are the attempts at understanding and concern? After all, McAfeeís crime was certainly less hazardous to others than Irsayís. I guess McAfee shouldíve come closer to hurting someone then perhaps he couldíve been a hero too! Then again, Kravitz is a toadying Colts beat writer. A positive relationship with an NFL owner is much more important to his job than a punter who will be gone from the team in a few years, at most. Itís regrettable but not entirely surprising that he would think this way.

Unfortunately, many others who cover the NFL think the same way, even without the clear conflict of interest. NFL owners have had enough breaks in life, they donít need an obedient media prepared to immediately absolve them of their mistakes on top of it.

"look at the kicker on a kick return, does he look like a football player? No, he's a specialist".
