What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions
As mentioned yesterday, since my Eagles’ playoff run enjoyed Dallas nearly as much as JFK, between now and Super Sunday I will be listing reasons not to care which of the contestants prevails. Today, the New Orleans Saints.
Archie Manning, amongst other things, is the elder statesman of the the franchise, largely for his year of yeoman’s service being mashed into the Superdome turf for those usually-dreadful Saints teams of the 70’s.
Never mind the pseudo-irony of Manning’s offspring leading the Saints’ opponent. Never mind all the “split loyalty” twaddle you will hear over the next two weeks. Archie Manning could have stopped the murders of two people, and chose not to do it.
As the above photo proves, Manning had contact with Simpson prior to the 1994 murders of Nicole Simpson and Ronald Goldman. It was such an “open secret” amongst Saints fans Manning had prior knowledge of these killings they would routinely disguise themselves to deal with the shame.
