Fraternal Society of Hypocrites: Lance Briggs
The Fraternal Society has, up to this point, been reserved for NFL head coaches after they've denied for weeks through the media that they have no intentions to return to college football and then quit on their NFL teams to return to the NCAA. (See: Bobby Petrino, Nick Saban) But in this era of change we, too, will adjust. You have to when something happens like Lance Briggs signing a 6-year deal with the Chicago Bears. The linebacker vowed on March 12th, 2007, "I've played my last snap for them. I'll never play another down for Chicago again." Welcome to the club, Lance. Hey, how's your 120 hours of community service coming? At least you can do it in Chicagoland.
