On Monday night’s telecast of the San Diego Chargers and Arizona Cardinals, Chris Berman and Trent Dilfer awkwardly attempted to praise the NFL for the way they handled the situation. Berman and Dilfer talk as if the NFL never botched the original 2 game suspension, and the total investigation prior to that.
“The NFL sent a strong message,” Dilfer said. “It’s more than being a great football player, you’ve got to win off the field as well.”
Berman agreed. He also thinks Roger Goodell and company sent a powerful and admirable message.
“I think the NFL, which prides itself on being leaders — it’s even larger than just football,” Berman said. “As you suggest, youth football — the NFL has an obligation, in my mind, to help those who need help right now. We could make a list of what that means, but this is something that (you) take a leadership role in society. There are those who need help right now. Get involved. The message is clear to anybody playing football.”
In the middle of Berman trying to get his point across, an Arizona blocked punt saved him from continuing his ramble. See the video below:
