Bill Simmons Column; Ken Williams Prepared To Kick Some Butt

Given how crazy this day got right off the bat with the revelations regarding the Gregg Williams speech the night before the 49ers-Saints game, I wanted to close out the day with a couple of interesting links. The first is an article by Bill Simmons earlier today discussing the issues surrounding NFL violence. There are so many issues involved that it is not remotely as black and white as we might want to make it out to be. There is a certain level of hypocrisy for all of us, and this is an evolving issue that will take some time to sort out.

The other article is an NFL.com interview with Chicago White Sox GM Ken Williams. His son is 49ers wide receiver Kyle Williams. The Gregg Williams audio includes some comments in which Williams spoke about making sure to give Kyle Williams a big pop because of his concussion. Ken Williams is not too pleased with that as he says it is best that he and Gregg Williams never be in a room together. There is no reason for that to happen, but Ken Williams is definitely fired up about this.
