The Daily's Hot Reads For Friday: Violent Times
Published February 8, 2013
FOX SPORTS' Jen Floyd Engel writes of the NFL reinstating Gregg Williams: "As long as he remained banned, it was too easy for everybody to pretend the league had a Gregg Williams problem instead of a straight-up violence problem. … It is a fairy tale, this idea that Gregg Williams was singular in his lack of regard for the health of his opponents" (FOXSPORTS.com).
The CHICAGO SUN-TIMES' Rick Morrissey writes, "The Cubs want fans to design a logo that salutes 100 years of Wrigley Field, which is to say 100 years of wretchedness. Really, what else could be saluted? One hundred years of winning? No" (CHICAGO SUN-TIMES). Also, the Cubs are set for one last Spring Training at Hohokam Stadium (CHICAGOSIDESPORTS.com).
The S.F. CHRONICLE's Scott Olster writes of Condoleezza Rice taking part in the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am: "Rice, intentionally or not, is quietly helping change the face of golf for women and people of color. She keeps popping up at golf clubs and in tournaments that were once fortresses of the white, male ruling elite" (S.F. CHRONICLE).
