football monkey businessSeriously. Most of our readers have no idea about some of the stuff that comes through to us while running this blog. For those of you who post comments, you’ll know that all comments are held for moderation in order to filter out spam (we get lots of them after spammers realized how much traffic we get), bad language and just plain dumb comments. Once in a while (although not much these days, we’ll get a weird one from some strange source or another (remember these two posts from back in 2008 HERE and HERE).

Anyway, after posting the piece on the new OSHA study summary on long-term problems from brain injuries pose for football players, we found this strange comment awaiting approval (as always, click on thumbnails to enlarge for easier viewing):

You can see that an IP address (geo location) comes in with each comment so we know where most of them come from.

Bayonne, New Jersey?!! Who would be sending this joke from New Jersey?

So then we looked up NFL Alumni Headquarters in New Jersey using Google Maps:

NFL Alumni HQ’s right across the river from Bayonne in Newark! Would someone from the Alumni have any reason to slam DeMaurice Smith and Domonique Foxworth and the NFLPA? Or Roger Goodell and the NFL? Nahh! Anyway, we don’t know exactly who wrote this comment (and an earlier one from “J. Fred Muggs”) from New Jersey with something in it to insult everyone (except the Alumni) but we thought it was worth sharing.
