One seemingly innocuous comment from Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury at the NFL owner meetings has raised quite the uproar.

An ESPN story by Josh Weinfuss titled “Kingsbury to allow Cardinals ‘cellphone breaks'” was probably written to emphasize that Kingsbury, who coached college students at Texas Tech, was more in tune with our very modern society.

Instead, it received backlash from people who believe that Arizona allowing cellphones during breaks will ruin the team, the NFL and perhaps America.

Let us begin with ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith losing his mind over this preposterous matter.

Some of those anti-cellphone break advocates, of course, bring their opinions to Twitter with a little bit of hypocrisy.

And yes, there were also folks defending Kingsbury regarding this very controversial — but probably minor — decision.

It’s an apparently heated debate, but here’s to guessing it will be Kingsbury’s decisions made before and after those cellphone (a.k.a. bathroom, a.k.a. water) breaks that will determine how the Cardinals succeed or fail.
