Context and tone

Without knowing the tone or context of the questions posed to Dez Bryant and Myron Rolle, it's impossible to know whether or not they were inappropriate. What we do know is both men were mature enough to handle them.

London Football a Foggy Idea

Instead of trying to force your product on a country that's already happy with their national sport, why not export it to a country that actually wants to see it?
