I listen to football players defending bounties and it reminds me of fraternity brothers defending hazing or hockey insiders defending fighting. As a football fan I expect my team to hurt “our” opponents, not injure them. Unfortunately, there is no bright shining line separating the two, only broad fuzzy ones.
The instant you start thinking that outsiders just don’t understand is the instant that you need to start looking for that broad fuzzy line. Because you have started to think that the mores of your group of insiders trump the mores of the world you live in.
And trust me, they don’t.
