Neandertal anti-defamation files, 20

I was just telling an audience of 500 the other day that Neandertals were really not very much like professional athletes. Now this, from BusinessWeek: “NFL Players With Elite College Degrees Become Bullying Targets”

Theres enough stress in the everyday life of making a team and trying to stay on the team, Kacyvenski said. The whole idea of hazing is outdated, its gone. Its a Neanderthal way to have this rite of passage. The rite of passage is how you play on Sunday.

I imagine there was no Neandertal hazing. And if there had been Neandertal hazing, they would have had much better imaginations than these guys.
