A Hypothetical…


Imagine you are a truck driver on the East coast with a shipment bound for L.A. The person receiving that shipment has promised that your payment for this job will be based on how quickly you can get the shipment to him. The faster you get it there the more you’ll be paid. In fact, your pay will go up exponentially for every hour of time you save. He’s also given you secret directions on back roads that he guarantees speed limits will not be enforced.

Would you speed?

Would you drive through the night despite laws prohibiting it?

I think many on here would probably say yes to at least one of those questions. Do you see the parallel? Think of what’s been going on in the MLB and NFL. See any similarities? Just some food for thought.
