Of course I suppose Kimo could then have said his interpretation of the rule was simply different from that of the league office and apologized to the Steelers organization and their fans (but not to Palmer)
But I recognize the Pats and their fans own the moral high ground when it comes to any issue concerning fair play within both the letter and spirit of the rules.
Throwing a similar example back in a Steeler fans face after they tried to take the 'moral high ground' is....taking the moral high ground?
Its simply stating that Steeler fans shouldn't be throwing stones form that particular glass house.
They've been great for a while now, three Super Bowls' worth of great. But only this season have the New England Patriots become The Show, the must-see team of stars, pretty boys and reformed bad boys. Suddenly, the Patriots are not simply great; they're compelling, fascinating, appearing to be almighty and a touch lawless.
The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.
