What does NFL stand for?

"No Fun League"? "National Fieldgoal League"? Maybe "National Football League"?

I think it should stand for "National Felony League." On the field, it's been a good year for the NFL. New England, Dallas and Green Bay are all having stellar seasons. HOWEVER, for every feel good story, there are 5 bad news stories. Mike Vick and dog fighting, PacMan Jones and guns, Tank Johnson and jail time... and now the Sean Taylor tragedy. Yesterday the 24 year-old football player was shot during a home invasion, and passed away today. Earlier this year a Denver Broncos player was shot outside a club, while another died after crashing his jet ski under the influence of drugs. I don't know what's going on, but this is kinda disturbing. Can you blame the league? I don't think so. Maybe it is the fact these kids are making so much money, and don't know how to deal with it? Maybe Biggie was on to something when he rhymed about "Mo Money, Mo Problems." Whatever the issue is, it doesn't look like it's going to get better anytime soon.

Pray for the Taylor family, these next couple of days are sure to be pretty tough, and they could probably use some heavenly help.
