I’m fairly certain that the one thing I find absolutely infuriating in sports is when athletes quit. This past weekend we had 3 examples of football players quitting within 2 days of each other. 49ers linebacker Ahmad Brooks started the theme on Sunday when he took himself out of the 49ers game due to what he felt was inadequate playing time.
