Well I have listened to lots and lots of people about the mess that is going on in the NFL. I have listened to every professional, think-they-are-a-professional and everyday fan talk about the crisis that is happening. Here are the facts that everyone is either afraid of or somehow, incredibly, missed it. I have some experience, albeit very old, with all of this. Amazing how it never changed.
1. The men. These players are gods – well at least that is how they are treated. Since they demonstrated an ability to play at an exceptional level they have been treated “special”. Since elementary or middle school, perhaps during some camp….they were treated “special”. They are huge, well trained and very in touch with their strength and their station in life.
The women. They have come to accept and expect ANYTHING that their player hands out. ANYTHING. They have a lot to lose. The lifestyle that being a player’s wife can produce. The hair, nails, clothes, homes, players wives club…..a lot. Every wife (or significant other) isn’t like that. Don’t get me wrong…..but most are.
The Commish. Here are two things that must be understood. 1. Goodell makes $40,000,000 a year. Those zeros are not a typo. Forty million dollars. For one year. Every year. Unreal. 2. He works FOR THE OWNERS. The MEN who want every strong, well fit and program understood player available to suit up.
This all came to being with a TMZ video of Ray Rice punching his fiancé in her face and leaving her unconscious. Then all of the fingers started flying. All of the players, agents, coaches, owners, commissioner, police departments, security departments and whoever else started pointing and saying more confusing….if not downright lies….about what really went on.
Here is what I say……this has been going on for a long time. Roger knew then, he knows now. He knew! He wants to put a committee together BY THE SUPERBOWL????? Is he joking????? Time for him and all of his people to say goodbye. Time to say Roger out…..Roger.
