Today in Ron Cook Poetry: Question America? OK. Question the Rooneys? Way Out of Line.

By Artistry

It takes a lot to get Ron Cook's ire up.  Rashard Mendenhall suggesting the tragedy of 9/11 may have been orchestrated by the United States government and Osama Bin Laden may have had nothing to do with it?  Didn't bother Ron Cook.  Freedom of speech, remember?  It's that freedom of speech thing, again, he probably thought to himself, several times, in paragraph form.  Heck, we've been openly mocking him for a year, and Ron Cook hasn't made a peep in response.  But when James Harrison this week tweeted criticism of NFL owners who voted to codify punishment for dangerous hits?  Ron Cook was apoplectic.  He hasn't been this worked up since the Koreans invaded Oakmont Country Club.  James Harrison, you just made enemies with the wrong asker of rhetorical questions.  With that, we bring you Friday's installment of "Today in Ron Cook Poetry":

Rashard Mendenhall...
That's OK.
We live in America.
James Harrison...
That's unacceptable.
Forget freedom of speech in this case.

I have no problem with Mendenhall's tweet.
I have a big problem with Harrison's.

Like the Steelers are the only defense that hits hard?
Calling Goodell and the others "idiots" is going to help that situation?

Is it just me or is that contradictory?
Like he was going to walk away from his $51.75 million contract?
That $51.75 million contract, remember?

Would Tackle For Free
