Sports Sillies

The Small Sports Blog is going to kick off Sports Sillies with the recent comments from Buffalo Bills GM Doug Whaley.  In response to a question about injure WR Sammy Watkins Whaley  said football was a violent game that he thought humans shouldn't be playing.  Then said it was a poor choice of words for this:

“Clearly I used a poor choice of words in my comment yesterday morning,” Whaley said in the statement. “As a former player who has the utmost respect and love for the game, the point that I was trying to make is that football is a physical game and injuries are a part of it. Playing football no doubt is very physically, mentally, and emotionally challenging, and that is all part of what make the game so compelling to play and watch. The game has more protection for players now than ever, thanks largely to the safety advancements and numerous rule changes made by our league and promoted to all levels of football. I believe our game continues to have a bright future and I hope that this statement provides clarity as to the intent of my earlier comment.”

Saying it was a poor choice of words is just plain silly .
