The NFL used to stand for the National Football League
Millions of fans that would watch on Sunday without fatigue
Climaxing in a Super Bowl watched by almost all homes in this land
It was in the sports world the king, the emperor, the most powerful brand
A violent sport, a violent game, the closest thing to war on a football field
Violence unchecked on but off how to curtail and to violent urges not yield?
With news of yet another arrest NFL may now mean National Felons League
How much longer with the fans and sponsors stand this criminal intrigue?
How much longer will the female fans put up with a culture that violence against women condones?
How many suspensions or bans must the NFL dish out while it tries to atone?
The NFL needs to come down on felons like a ton of bricks with 4.2 in the 40 speed
The NFL needs to rip out the violent criminal behavior off the field seed.
If not the fans will leave, the sponsors will withdraw
No one will support a team of felons violating the law.
