The Burke Blotter: The NFL Needs Leaders, Not Cowards

One of the cardinal rules for anyone involved with the National Football League, whether it’s as a player or executive, is “don’t harm the shield.” After a week that featured perhaps the biggest public relations blunder in league history, the NFL shield has not only been harmed but it’s also been dented, soiled upon, lit […]
