"Take the example of hockey..."
When not attending random celebrity events, Alan Thicke is apparently studying NFL issues and coming up with new ways for Roger Goodell to phrase the rules in his rulebook.
As required by law, all Canadians must relate everything in the world to hockey, but in this particular instance it might actually make sense.
As told to the Dan LeBatard radio show in Miami:
"Take the example of hockey where they ultimately, simply say in the rules that you are responsible for your stick. By the way, that rule could also apply to Brett Favre and Ben Roethlisberger I suppose.
But if you're responsible for your stick, that means that no matter who lifts or how it gets swung around or what happens, if you hit somebody with your stick, even accidentally, and they bleed or get cut, there's a penalty for that and occasionally fines for that.
So, ultimately, you're responsible for your stick and maybe if you're responsible for your helmet and that be the ultimate definition of that rule... maybe that's one way to approach it."
Tune in next week, when David Faustino comes up with the definitive solution to the college football postseason.
