OPENING HIT: A man was stabbed during the San Diego-Oakland game on Thursday night. It's unclear if the violence was related to the game but this is how bad some of this violence is getting: the incident has received mininal coverage from the national media. This is how accustomed we've become to this sort of act. It barely registers any more.
This isn't the NFL's fault and I'm not going to climb aboard a high horsey and lecture about societal ills. This is the second incident of serious violence at a Raiders road game this year. In August, after the 49ers and Raiders played in a preseason game, a man wearing a "F--- the Niners" shirt was shot several times in the stomach.
Five months ago San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow was allegedly beaten by two Dodgers fans.
Again, no high horse, just an expression of confusion. What's always been wonderful about sports is its unifying aspect but it seems some of that is eroding and we're becoming numb to it all.
DUNGY: I wonder if he could be convinced to coach at Penn State for a year or two. No classier guy, no better cure for that mess. The perfect transition to a more pernament coach.
