On Darryl Talley

The reaction to Tim Graham’s excellent Darryl Talley story has been downright heartwarming. Seeing fans, players, and alumni alike contributing thousands of dollars to help Talley with his financial struggles should make you pause the next time you consider cursing humanity.

With that said, I can’t help but feel we missed the point–at least those of us who tuned into the Bills/Browns game. The physical state that Talley finds himself in, is in no doubt, due to the sport we love to watch. How do we continue watching a sport that is likely to produce more heart wrenching stories like Darryl Talley?

Do we want to know the terrifying truth? Or, do we want to watch the Buffalo Bills d-line sack some dingers?
