5. Now that's how to protest.

After a week of burning things down, stopping mass transit, and other unproductive ways of protest that probably did more to alienate public sentiment than it did to garner support, the Rams nail it on national TV.

These men are heroes to many who don't normally give a crap one way or the other about Michael Brown or the perceived lack of justice that culminated in a failed grand jury indictment. Hopefully, at least some will finally get an inkling that there's a police enforcement problem that demands national attention.

Of course there will still be those who have absolutely no respect for racial accord, but there's no bringing them on board anyway. These are the ignorant couch potatoes who see NFL players as their personal slave labor and consistently side with team owners on lower compensation for their talents and injuries. I'm sure everyone knows at least one of these slovenly armchair coaches.

Overall, a good day of progress as I see it.
Go Rams! With the Browns tanking in the 4th, today I'm a St Louis fan.
