FIRE JOE MORGAN: Of*fen*sive


Where Bad Sports Journalism Came To Die

FJM has gone dark for the foreseeable future. Sorry folks. We may post once in a while, but it's pretty much over. You can still e-mail dak, Ken Tremendous, Junior, Matthew Murbles, or Coach.

1: of, relating to, or designed for attack
2: contrary to a particular or prevailing sense of what is decent, proper, or moral

For a good example of how the quality "offensive" is demonstrated in everyday speech, let's turn to Steeler LB Joey Porter:

"It was just one of those games, the world wanted Indy to win so bad, they were going to do whatever they could. It was like the 9/11 year when they wanted the Patriots (who beat the Steelers in the AFC final) to win it for the world, just for the patriotic of the world. That's what they wanted for Indy today."

Remember the worst tragedy this country has ever faced? It's totally cool to cite that event in relation to an alleged conspiracy among NFL referees, right? Okay, good. Just checking.

Although, maybe Porter has a point, because remember how that tragedy was centered in Foxborough, Mass.? Oh no -- wait. It was New York. And Washington, D.C. And...someplace else...oh. Pennsylvania.

For some reason my favorite part of this is the phrase "the 9/11 year."
Can we all just agree the officiating was worse than the alleged "Holocaust" and move on?
