Guns Kill, Helmets Only Maim

Players suspended. Coaches under fire. Analysts fired. Seems as though every base has been covered in the 31-Player Brawl Recourse Handbook. But as Helen Lovejoy is so fond of asking...

"What about the children?"

Deadspin got wind of a special project in Miami called the Join-a-Team, Not-a-Gang Program which the Miami-Dade County Police run to entice young men and women from the area to want to be more like thier favorite Miami football player and less like a local gangbanger.

"
This Saturday, the Miami Dade Police Department will bring about 700 children to the Miami vs. FIU football game as part of the program."

Oops.
