I am a pro-football fan. I watch every game I can every week. I seldom watch college football, not because I do not like it but there are so many and those that I would like to watch is not on television. I do not get into techniques or coaches, the politics, nor do I know most of the players and their bios. I just like to watch the game and, yes, I have a favorite team. I also seldom watch the talking heads, the television analysts. I cannot tell you why, I just do not. Some say, especially my wife, I am not a true football fan but, to me, I am. I just love the game in my own way.
My wife keeps asking me to go to a stadium to watch a live game. I do not want to go. I have tried to explain to her that I can sit in my mancave, relax, be warm and cozy, have my food and drink when I want it without any hassle, and if there is rain, I am dry. Another thing, I can watch a replay of a flagged call as many times as I choose, and it will be a close-up.
As far as the Jon Gruden case is concerned, I knew it would be a matter of time before the bad actions of a coach came out. In my mind, I knew some coaches has said what he has said and done in their hearts also. Jon got caught from another investigation. If not for the other investigation he would have never been caught and would have continued. He is not the only one, he just thought others thought the way he does and would accept what he wrote. They did but kept the messages that was finally read by others that eventually outed him.
I cannot feel sorry for him because, even losing his job, he is okay. He has made millions and will still make money. His family, as well as his brother, who is an NFL coach, will not suffer. People have known about this for years and have not said anything. What about them? It is okay to think it, believe it but not act upon it or write it. Keep it to yourself. If you do not want others to know, keep it to yourself. If you do not want to be caught-up in these things, keep it to yourself. If you want to keep your job and make more money, keep it to yourself (on the money issue read my other blog from last week ( www.faithingodministries.net dated 10/10/2021)).
Many, many times I want to say something about a lot of things, but I keep it to myself. If I am the only one that know, I cannot be accused of saying something that will bite me in my rear-end. If people think good about you and you have another personality that is not shown, do not write it nor say it, keep it to yourself and not a single person will be the wiser. Jon Gruden should have kept it to himself.
