So another day, and another Seattle Seahawks player that says something stupid about the San Francisco 49ers and head coach Jim Harbaugh. It's actually pretty funny, given that they're just angry that Harbaugh calls it as he (and everyone who isn't a Seahawks fan) sees it: they cheated, it probably wasn't Adderall, and it's happened more since Pete Carroll took over.
I also think it's pretty shameless that players get fined for criticizing the NFL, criticizing referees and wearing the wrong socks, but a player can say, in so many words, that he wants to choke a coach and another can reference an illegal hit -- for which he was fined for -- and suggest he'd like to do that to a coach as well. I'm not upset that idiots are allowed to be idiots (well, I am, but that's a battle that was lost long ago), I just think it's a little silly.
Anyway, we're going to jump right into your links for the day. It's my birthday on Sunday so I'm eager to get to bed and sleep through Saturday!
