“Broncos sign Demaryius Thomas to five-year . . . contract” (Updated)

😉

I’m happy the Broncos were able to sign this great player to a long term contract, but I really dislike how professional sports has evolved over the years, the emphasis now being overwhelming on PROFESSIONAL (i.e., money) rather than sports. Perhaps it is unavoidable, but I dislike it when reading coverage of the NFL too often feels more like reading the business (or legal, or police blotter, or political) section of the newspaper than the sports section.
