NFL players are the manliest of men so when we hear reports of a tickling scandal, it makes us wonder. Recently during Tiki Barber’s “Ask Me Anything” session on Reddit he shed some light on some of the dirt in the NFL.
When a fan asked him which player he always tried to avoid on the field he firmly answered Jeremiah Trotter. This lead to a series of stories about them on the field but no account was more suspect than an alleged tickling incident.
Barber wrote the following:
“We played each other so much and knew each other so well that when he hit me, he hit me hard, but he’d also help me up and sometimes tickle me under the pile.”
First of all pause. Secondly, there is no room for tickling in sports. Roger Goodell must take a further look into this matter before this becomes a widespread epidemic throughout the league.
