I was just reading Peter King's article on SI.com regarding creation of a higher professional standard in the NFL in the wake of the Richie Incognito/Miami Dolphins report. The article starts off indicating that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell contacted some former players to discuss the idea of a new professional code. The first player quote in the article was Jason Avant tellign Goodell “we need you to set standards. We need you to make it black and white. We need standards, and if we don’t meet them, we shouldn’t be here.”
Stand up quote from a stand up guy and a great example of the values of a Michigan Man in light of what par has become in the NFL.
