VIDEO: Bobby Petrino Fired, Proving A Deranged Falcons Fan Rules The World

NEW ORLEANS, LA - JANUARY 04: Head coach Bobby Petrino of the Arkansas Razorbacks looks down in the third quarter against the Ohio State Buckeyes during the Allstate Sugar Bowl at the Louisiana Superdome on January 4, 2011 in New Orleans, Louisiana.

The Arkansas Razorbacks have fired Bobby Petrino, who once interned as the head coach of the Atlanta Falcons for a semester. He got a partial credit. In case you're just now joining us, Petrino was found to have lied to his boss about his state-funded affair -- by which I mean that whole paying his 25-year-old mistress a $20,000 booty bonus to take an Arkansas athletic department job ahead of 158 other applicants.

Falcons fan, you've known as well as anybody (short of a Louisville fan, of course) just what sort of a character Petrino is. Anyone who wasn't clued in has now joined you. But I can't help but wonder about one thing. With Petrino and the Saints both receiving such devastating blows in a single month, should we worry about our insane new Falcons fan overlord? Has he or she gone power-mad?

The fact that Petrino was fired VIA A NOTE is all the evidence we need, really, that a lunatic Falcons fan has taken control of everything, but you'll agree our crime scene is quite convincing.

Apologies this time around for the video quality, though I was sort of going for that whole "terrible video" thing.

One thing for which I will never apologize is defending the good name of June Jones, and I'll recite to you a stat about Jeff George's career interception percentage outside of Atlanta as evidence if you ever challenge me about this. LEAVE JUNE JONES ALONE, UNHINGED TYRANT OF SPORTS.
