What makes them thugs in the first place? So playing great football = thugs nowadays?
Well thugs typically bully and push their victims around before robbing them. Thats pretty much how the Seattle D operates. Our D should act the same. We should out thug/bully/whatever Seattle(and other opposing teams)
I don't think the OP meant thug in the way you wanted it to. Stop trying to connect dots that aren't there in order to create some non existent social justice issue. Thats lame sauce.
