Football: A new favourite player, Ellis Lankster

Nothing can be finer than tearing someone a new one today when you never heard of her/him prior to yesterday.

Only a true NFL obsessive knew that Ellis Lankster was a rookie cornerback for the Buffalo Bills before the clip below started to spread virally.

There should be some empathy for Lankster. He seems to have a speech impediment. He would not be the first person who had problems communication which belied his intelligence and value. Who knows, given the way NFL teams overanalyze every bit of minutia about a prospective player, perhaps it caused him to fall to the seventh round in the draft.

Anyway, sorry, but a football player stuttering is not funny. As for the Bills' offence sputtering ...
