The NFL wants less taunting and Hesjedal admits to PEDs

From where I sit it looks like the NFL is thinking about another crackdown on celebrating...
This time I actually agree with them. I like end zone celebrations, I'm even fine with a bit before the goal line, but what we saw on Sunday was disgusting. And I'm a Seahawks fan! Golden Tate's showboating on his way to the endzone was idiotic to say the least. I'm not saying act bored when you score, but taunting like that doesn't have any place in the game. It's pathetic. I'm fine with the idea of taking points off the board for taunting while the play is on. Tate was so busy making an ass of himself he almost stepped out of bounds. Get there. Then celebrate. If you can't manage that you deserve to get drilled next time the ball comes your way.

Another big name cyclist has admitted to using PEDs...this time it's a Canadian...
 I feel very torn by this confession. Ok, Hesjedal used PEDs, briefly, 10 years ago. He's not denying it. He says he regrets it. Good. Perfect. I'm disappointed, to say the least. However, I'm not going to have Hesjedal drawn and quartered for something he did a decade ago. The problem is Lance Armstrong. If he can lie, cheat and steal, why is anyone else a surprise?  The facthe duped everyone for so long leaves us questioning every cyclist. I think Hesjedal is clean now. I hope he is. But, there will always be nagging doubt. And that may be Lance Armstrong's lasting legacy. A constant cloud of uncertainty surrounding cyclists.

At least that's how I see it...and I sit in the cheap seats.
