SMH...Degrading the fanbase and basically calling us stupid by saying we're brainwashed by sports radio & fantasy football & a bunch of other shit and that we're incapable of making up our own minds. What a dipshit.
Holy ****. This dumbass actually blames video games and fantasy football. That's what's wrong with fans today, according to this ****ing idiot...

Let's start with video games. The proliferation of popular video games like the Madden franchise has only served to increase the disconnect that some fans have in terms of realizing that these professional football players are, in fact, human beings themselves. Because everything else in video games like Call of Duty and Grant Theft Auto is make believe and fictitious I think sometimes there are fans that almost forget that the players are real and not just characters in some video game they play.

Then there's fantasy football. Like video games, fantasy football has been a huge boon for the business of the NFL and, in turn, NFL players. Like video games, however, fantasy football has contributed to the propensity of fans who think of and thus treat NFL players like commodities. If you draft and trade and drop players on your fantasy team enough you really do begin to think of them in that way. Ultimately they just become numbers whether that is the jersey they wear or the statistics they generate. The human element is gone.
