SportsFilter: The Wednesday Huddle:

A place to discuss the sports stories that aren't making news, share links that aren't quite front-page material, and diagram plays on your hand. Remember to count to five Mississippi before commenting in anger.

I admire his forthrightness and sincerity but in the current climate, he's apologizing too hard.

No one got knocked out cold in a hotel elevator, and his level of transgression is a small order of fries on the Ross-Manafort scale.

Give me a rookie white collar criminal with a shred of remorse over a woman beater or a Buffalo Bill Romanowski any day.

Agreed with everything (except the statement that he's a rookie-he's played 5 seasons in Philly). Dude sounds like a stand-up guy who got talked into something he didn't quite understand thinking it was under the radar, and he got popped. Now he owns it.

I think he meant that he's a rookie criminal.

Well, shit. That makes sense.

Or maybe I just wanted to be disagreeable and start a pissing contest with beaverboard. Buck toothed, flat tailed, gnawed-on, river-dwelling, scruffy-looking nerfherder.

Call me whatever you want, it don't matter.

I'm delighted because my previous impromptu statement has been vetted by legal counsel.

Ivanka, be honest with yourself. You've always wanted to meet a man who can say that and mean it.
