Alabama Tornado Relief
(Text "REDCROSS" to 90999 to make a $10 general donation)
1. Over 346 people died in the April tornado outbreaks this year not to mention the homes, businesses and cities that were destroyed. That is hardly something to joke about. This is just football, some lines you just don’t cross and this is one of them.
2. The player pictured as a deadly tornado is Arkansas wide receiver Joe Adams who has 198 yards receiving and 1 touchdown. This puts him as the 78th ranked wideout in the nation - hardly anything to write home about.
3. I hope Nick Saban finds this and prints enough copies to hang in every Crimson Tide player’s locker this week. Because while I can’t take out the physical anger that I have about this image - Courtney Upshaw, Dont’a Hightower and Mark Barron can.
