vdawg: Jason Smith should be fired for drinking on the job. This is as bad as journalism gets. He makes Chris Chase from Yahoo look insightful.

Super Chronic: Doc Daneeka: The NFL is the least diverse sports league in America.The NHL is full of Canadians and Europeans. Players from a dozen countries speaking a half-dozen different languages.MLB is full of Latinos from the Caribbean and Venezuela, as well as players from Japan, Taiwan, and other Pacific Rim countries.The NBA has had an infusion of Europeans and is growing like crazy in China and elsewhere in Europe, as epitomized by Yao Ming and others.The NFL, by contrast, has basically no diversity. 99.9% of the players come from one country, one culture, and speak the same language. Aside from the occasional Aussie kicker or something, basically all the players are Americans.Tell that to Tom Brady as he's running away from the Ugandan Mathias Kiwanuka and the British-Nigerian Osi Umenyiora in the Super Bowl. I'm not disagreeing that there's less national-origin diversity in the NFL than in other sports, but 99.9% is an exaggeration. In any event, obviously any lack of diversity is due to American football not being played in other countries. And through all of this, I'm also kind of wondering why I'm supposed to care where the players come from.
