The NFL did not cancel its games on Sunday, Nov. 24. (Recall the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, and the debate about what games should be played.) In today's column in the Boston Globe, Dan Shaughnessy does a good job of explaining how NFL leadership made the decision to play -- and how that decision backfired, some people believe today.
“Whether it was the right call, I can’t say,’’ former Congressman Joseph P. Kennedy told the Globe on Wednesday. “We were devastated by what occurred, but there has to be some notion that the country can recover.’’
