and he makes some very strong points

But the next time the league chooses to celebrate the life and times of Robinson, I have an idea that’s far more symbolic than having a collection of players and coaches wear No. 42 on their backs.

Kick Tom Yawkey out of the Hall of Fame.

Very insightful. Odd that Rupert isn't in Cooperstown, though.

Ironically, the last NFL owner to integrate was George Preston Marshall, who was a charter member of the PFHoF. His Washington Redskins began life as the Boston Braves.

Everybody run! The PC Police are on the march in Boston.

It might not be admirable, but he cannot be serious.
