Class - 2 Cents
Posted by: Paul Nichols

What do commentators mean when they say a football player has class? That he respects his football opponents? Or that he keeps his extra-marital affair private?


Should there be a distinction between class in the public and private realms? I don't think so. Some sports stars get described with class while others (with possibly more class) don't. And we still haven't even defined "class."


People have made this public-private distinction for selfish gains since times eternal, justifying hypocritical or evil behavior. But now they seem to have a good way to explain it away. Even if you're a total jerk at home, as long as you behave in public, you can be a "real class guy."

An article that mentions class a lot. Drew Brees broke Dan Marino's passing yards in a season record, but did it in the 4th quarter of a game they were already winning by a lot. It was at home and a nationally televised game, so I don't think it's that big a deal. Especially because everyone involved is classy.

Another article
Here's another article about the Saints running up the score. It says it should be expected. And that Drew Brees is a class guy.
