Shutdown Corner - NFL

Political pundit James Carville spoke at the NFL owners meetings on Sunday night, and, in what might be an extreme case of not playing to your audience, made a joke that ridiculed both the Republican Party and the NFC West.

He told the owners that he felt like the 2012 Republican presidential candidates were as bad as the NFC West.

Via Adam Schefter on Twitter, Rams general manager Billy Devaney wasn't happy about it.

In response, NFL PR guy Greg Aiello rattled off a series of tweets saying that Devaney and Carville ended up laughing together. He also quotes Devaney saying that he did not curse Carville, and said that the Ragin' Cajun is a good guy who really loves football.

Bless Devaney's heart for his passion about his job, but really, making fun of the NFC West is off-limits? After a 7-9 record won the division? Maybe it's time to loosen up a bit, Bill.
