Abner Haynes’

Heroes of Football

Mission Statement

 Abner Haynes invites you to become a Member of the Abner Haynes Heroes of Football
Organization. For over 20 years our Founder and Chairman Abner Haynes Sr. has
been on the front line fighting for fair and equitable treatment for retired NFL
football players and their families. After years of witnessing the unfavorable
outcomes of great men who built the game of professional football Mr. Haynes
could not sit on the sideline quietly any longer. Mr. Haynes established The
Heroes of Football to assist those in need as well as to bring groups together
who are natural allies. The retired players, the fans, the children,
the elderly, the military. Together along with the corporate and
non-profit communities we continue to make a positive difference in many
lives.We have adopted a Mission Statement and are committed to working with
charities and non-profit organizations in a wide variety of areas. The Heroes of
Football also take very seriously it’s role in being an advocate for those who
can’t defend themselves such as children, and the elderly. In pursuit of that
goal we hold summer camps for the kids, visit childrens hospitals as well as
assisted living facilities. The Heroes sponsor golf tournaments, fishing
tournaments. health screenings and our annual Heroes Awards Banquet. The Heroes
also have a special relationship with the military, lifting wounded soldiers
spirit’s with hospital visits. We have also participated in many “Welcome Home”
events for the troops coming home from the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

This is the beginning of a process that will invite all retired players to join our
program of helping others and helping ourselves and our families by telling our
stories on the Internet.

Our Founder and Chairman Abner Haynes Sr. believes that every former player has an
important story that needs to be told and we are the unbiased vehicle that
players can use to tell their story, their way.

These stories are important to many communities and people of different ages and
backgrounds. All of the stories are true, about football and life in America
over much of the last century. Most NFL veterans will never be voted into the
Hall of Fame because the system is not designed to praise many. The Hall of Fame
is designed to praise a chosen few selected by people who never played in the

Within Abner Haynes Heroes of Football, there is room for all who have played. All
former players deserve recognition and, now, through Abner Haynes Heroes of
Football we will tell our own stories on the Internet and beyond.

Please consider joining us and we encourage you to invite your friends.

Editorial: The media coverage of Tiger Woods' apology is hurting him not helping.

Tags: , , , , , ,

I have up to now written just once about the Woods’ issue. That was concerning his asking to be left alone about the issue of his infidelity. I don’t care about that because frankly I don’t think it is any of my business. Whatever happened is between Woods, his clients, his family and the women involved. Frankly I don’t care and have zero interest in any of it.

Woods is a public figure both because he is a professional athlete and because he is a spokesman for a number of public and private companies. He must accept the public scrutiny because he has received millions of dollars for hawking products. There is no question that he and his handlers had carefully crafted an image that was too perfect for any reasonable human to believe. That image was also damaged badly perhaps irreparably by what he did.

The media has made it worse by a factor of 100 by giving his statement coverage on every network then dissecting each syllable of his statement for hours on end. For those that had no opinion about Woods good or bad, this drum beat gives us a headache that Tylenol 45 could not possibly cure. That coverage will end up hurting him far more than the actions themselves including the bizarre events of Thanksgiving morning. His clients clearly insisted that he make the public apology. However, they should have known what affect the medial frenzy would have on him. He was smart not to answer questions because they would have involved the most lurid aspects of his sexual encounters.

P.T. Barnum once said that no one ever went broke under estimating the intelligence of the American public. I am not sure if that is true. Based on some of the people we elect to public office, I tend to believe it. I am sure however, that Tiger will live to regret the statement almost as much as he regrets his actions.

That’s what I think. Tell me what you think.
