If you truly want to see stupidity, just look around you. It is everywhere. However, few examples are as perplexing as NFL stupidity.
NFL stupidity is special! It takes unusual incompetence to destroy something as successful as the NFL.
Perhaps the only thing that compares with NFL stupidity is political stupidity. But that comparison is improper. Political stupidity is mostly imagined.
Most political actions are considered stupid because they rarely achieve the stated goals. The average wage-earner and citizen is made worse off with these failures. But that doesn’t mean they don’t work for the political class. When viewed in this fashion, political actions are not stupid and ineffective. Politicians “fail” while getting richer and re-elected. The citizenry continues to pay more in taxes and lose freedoms. Is it the politicians who are stupid in this equation?
