Johnny Arrogant will play by his rules ... for now

There is an uncomfortable truth far greater than just the personal, and most likely unintentional, assault currently being staged against the NCAA by Johnny Football Inc.

The NCAA was founded on the ideals of fairness, much like our great country, and then in practice we learn that so little in life is actually fair.

Pursuing equality and fairness is admirable and a necessity, only until it gets right in the way of what we want. Thatís when there are issues.

Why would we prefer if Johnny Football didnít party it up, act like a spoiled brat, taunt opponents and get away with it? Because 99 percent of us would never get away with it.

1. Maybe the best thing

that could happen to him would be that his "career" should follow the same path as Tim Tebow's did. Although Tebow never seemed to be an arrogant shit, just sort of stubborn in wanting to play a position he's just not good at on a Pro level.

Anyway, "Johnny Football" really needs his ass to be taken down a peg or three. He needs a firm kick of reality and he needs to land squarely on his face.

Arrogance, even if someone is a whiz at what he does, is a huge turn-off.
