I just finished writing the story about Roger Goodell and the money he wants from the NFL–to be the league’s commissioner. Unfortunately, the knot in my stomach hasn’t gone away, so perhaps this poll will help me feel better.
I don’t know about you, but I no longer watch the NFL, whatsoever.
It never used to be like that. I used to watch all the games. But when they started with the “taking a knee BS,” I found myself turning the channel. And that was last year. This year, I couldn’t tell you which team is doing well and which team sucks, because, in my book, the entire league is a disgrace.
I am not alone. Americans are turning their backs on the league. Well, I should correct myself…. most Americans with a spine are turning their backs. I know one retired N.Y. cop who actually drove seven hours to attend an NFL game. The cop was accompanied by relatives who are members of the NYFD. What is wrong with these people? But that’s another poll for another day.
With ratings down and the NFL brand in the dumps, the league’s head honcho, Roger Goodell is demanding a salary of $50 million and a private jet, for him to stay on with the NFL. I know it sounds comical, but it’s true. And a group of team owners is considering giving him what he wants.
