Be Forewarned, NFL Players: Satan Wants Your Soul

So says Dallas Cowboys offensive lineman Leonard Davis, a devout Baptist who discussed Satan’s presence in the NFL during an interview with BPSportsnet, which covers sports from a “spiritual perspective.”

Davis, who along with teammates Jason Whitten and Terence Newman, sat down for the interview with the God-fearing BPSportnet shortly after the Pro Bowl.  All three of them discussed how their faith intersects with their careers, but Davis’ comments were the most enlightening:

On the temptations of the NFL: “The biggest thing is for Christians who come into the league or [for] those of us who are already here is to know is that Satan is definitely on the prowl. He wants to see us fail.”

So, Satan is the Commissioner of the UFL?

Who knows? Maybe Davis is on to something here. To be frank, I am not sure to what extent Satan’s demonic ways have permeated and corrupted the National Football League, but I can tell you one thing: Satan definitely is happy there will be an uncapped season in 2010.

“The Power of Christ compels you to work out a new Collective Bargaining Agreement! The Power of Christ compels you to work out a new Collective Bargaining Agreement”

Say it with me. “The Power of Christ compels you to work out a new Collective Bargaining Agreement!”

May the Lord be with us during these evil times.
