This is bouncing all around the webs today, but I’d thought I would mention it here, if only to note the NFL’s reaction. As you may have heard, the Washington Post (DC) chose not to run some Tank McNamara comic strips that skewered Commissioner Goodell for his decisions re Vick, etc., that seemed particularly racial. Today’s strip captures our basic view here at RadRev that the commissioner is “the world’s highest paid assistant principal” due to the overbroad NFL personal conduct policy.
According to the NYTimes, the N.F.L. offered “a restrained reaction”:
Joe Browne, the league’s executive vice president of communications and public affairs, said in a statement: “By nature, cartoonists, like newspaper columnists, present — and are entitled to — their opinion even if it is not a balanced one.”
