Charles Tillman said that if his wife goes into labor Sunday, he won’t play in the Chicago Bears game against Houston. You know what that makes him? Good. Very, very good. I’d give the idea one Facebook-like right now. Thumbs up.

Mike Florio, of NBC and Pro Football Talk wouldn’t. He said that football players should plan their “nine-month family expansion activities’’ so that potential childbirth doesn’t conflict with the football season. Florio said Tillman chose this profession and owes loyalty to his teammates by showing up for work at the games.

Well, then, I guess that makes Tillman bad. Very, very bad.

The story that played out about Tillman the past few days has been so typical. It is reflective of our tendency to over-simplify by creating an argument as fast as humanly possible.

First off, if Tillman blows off the Bears game Sunday night, then he will be doing the right thing. We’ve done enough damage in this society with the mentality that sports come first. If Tillman wants to put his family first, then good for him.

There is nothing that comes before the birth of a child. And for Florio to suggest that players should plan the extension of their families is absolutley ridiculous. That would be similar to someone saying he should do the same thing since he reports on the NFL, his family life should be planned around the NFL schedule.

I swear some people freakin' amaze me!
