I don't really see an issue with it, but I'm sure Goodell will make one of it. The Michael Vick thing occurred in America where it is illegal to have dog fights, this occured in the Dominican Republic.

Having your own opinion is fine. Publicly tweeting it is something else. As one of many faces of a multi-billion dollar corporation, I'm betting his employer has a few words with him. That goes for any walk of life. If a sr. accounting director of some giant Wall St. firm started tweeting about how cool it was you're allowed to embezzle in Somalia or wherever, I'm betting his employers would have a word or two with him.

I'm w/ the guys on 610 regarding this. If he wanted to go see it, fine...BUT he didn't need to tweet it, much less a photo. He's still a member fo the NFL and subject to scrutiny for his off-field behavior.

I see where your coming from , but I just think that article was meant for readers to automatically form a negative opinion . I hate these types of articles. With all that said I do understand your point of view.

I like the first comment on there.

Why is bullfighting considered something you can publically talk about and take pictures of, but cockfighting is not? Neither bulls or roosters are really "pets" and so don't have the stigma that dogs do.

At the same time, this is a pretty stupid move on KJax's part.

Although, given the text that accompanied the pictures, Im not sure "brilliant" was a word I would have used to describe him

LOL.

The guy's not too bright. Public Perception FAIL.

How long before franchises hire a person to be a full-time employee who coaches and monitors players' social media offerings? The day is coming soon.

If you want to get a job in the NFL, and you're right out of college, go and present yourself to an NFL team and tell them you want to get paid to monitor and coach the players on social media do's and dont's.

I think there's going to be a market for that sort of service. Your job is to hold an orientation every year, and to Big Brother the players' messages. All the owner has to do is put verbiage in the players' contracts that states they will abide by the conduct set forth for social media and they will allow the Social Media Czar to monitor and coach them/guide them on what to do and what not to do.

Either I'm conflicted or I'm a hypocrite or both. I hate dog fights and bull fighting, but I'm indiffrent about cockfighting. I think it was a dumb move to tweet a pic. Too bad too many people feel the uncontrollable need to share too much by tweeting, facebooking and all the other forums. They have turned the world into a planet of gossiping school girls.

Agreed GP.... I think this would fall under the Player Development umbrella of NFL franchises... something that will definitely be getting more attention to in the future.

Sorry, but Jackson doesn't and shouldn't get a pass here. If he wasn't smart enough to learn from what happened with Michael Vick than I don't know if he's just brain dead or slow. Advertising something like this could easily end up all over ESPN and be all over the news where he's forced to issue out apologies and everything. If he wanted to go watch it, that's sort of sad but if so he was really stupid for twitting or tweeting it however you say it.
