Giving the business

IT’S ORIGINS ARE FROM THE NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE.

THE TERM WAS USED BY PLAYERS AND COACHES TO DESCRIBE WHAT GOES ON DURING A PILE UP OF PLAYERS ATTEMPTING TO RECOVER A FUMBLE OR A LOOSE BALL ON THE FIELD.

PLAYERS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PILE WOULD OFTEN RESORT TO DIRTY, CLASSLESS TACTICS

Giving the business

THIS PHRASE WAS FIRST STARTED SOMETIME IN THE 1940’S.

IT’S ORIGINS ARE FROM THE NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE.

 It’s exact origins are unknown BUT THE TERM WAS USED BY PLAYERS AND COACHES TO DESCRIBE WHAT GOES ON DURING A PILE UP OF PLAYERS ATTEMPTING TO RECOVER A FUMBLE OR A LOOSE BALL ON THE FIELD.

PLAYERS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PILE WOULD OFTEN RESORT TO DIRTY, CLASSLESS TACTICS in an attempt to recover the ball from another player while the referees were attempting to clear the pile to discover who had recovered the ball.

OFTEN TIMES, PLAYERS WOULD RESORT TO PUNCHING, KICKING, SCRATCHING, GRABBING AN OPPOSING PLAYERS BALL SAC AND SQUEEZING, ETC….

In the hopes that the player with the ball would give up the ball to try and stop the other player from “GIVING HIM THE BUSINESS”.

THE PHRASE BECAME KNOWN TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC IN 1986, DURING AN NFL GAME BETWEEN THE BUFFALO BILLS AND THE NEW YORK JETS WHEN REFEREE BEN DREITH CALLED A PERSONAL FOUL PENALTY ON THE JETS’ MARTY LYONS AFTER HE TACKLED BILLS QUARTERBACK JIM KELLY TO THE GROUND AND STARTED TO REPEATEDLY PUNCH HIM IN THE HEAD.

Dreith announced to the crowd: “We have a personal foul on number 99 of the defense — after he tackled the quarterback, HE’S GIVING HIM THE BUSINESS down there, that’s a 15-yard penalty.”

Player 1: “Who recovered the fumble? Did they make a call yet?”

Player 2: “Dunno. There still in the pile GIVING THE BUSINESS.” … punching someone in crotch. the referee called a 15 yard penalty FOR GIVING THE BUSINESS.

I’ve seen so much hate thrown at Goodell and the NFL

that I thought I would give them a personal shout-out of gratitude!

 

Thank you for giving me back my Sunday afternoons and

Monday & Thursday evenings.

 

Thank you for giving me more time with my family.

 

Thank you for giving me more clarity on my own beliefs.

What you disrespect, I hold sacred.

 

Thank you for putting more money in my wallet as I finally

cancel cable. ESPN was about the only reason I had it anymore.

 

Thank you for showing your true colors in disrespecting the

colors I hold true.

 

Thank you for showing your true contempt for America before

we wasted even more time and treasure on you.

 

Thank you for showing that your outreach to veterans and our

servicemen and women was only a cynical business calculation.

We can now devote our efforts to those who truly care about them.

 

Thank you for giving me an excellent example of what not to do

as a business owner.
