The Dangerfield Effect

Lot's of talk this week about Mike Vanderjagt's abrupt dismisal last week. The Indianapolis Star has a great opinion piece looking into what went down and also how hard it is to be a kicker in the NFL.

As Adam Vinatieri put it:

"Sometimes if you're a lineman or something, you can get kind of lost in the shuffle," Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri said. "But if you're a kicker, you're on an island, and everybody sees what you've done, good or bad."

If there was ever a Rodney Dangerfield of sports it would have to be the kicker.
