Hopefully Humorous (and sometimes R-rated) Musings About Life

Sayonara, Mr. Goodell

1 Comment

As a fan of an NFL team — who didn’t win a 7th SuperBowl this year — I admit that I’ve gone to nfl{dot}com to buy more than my fair share of shirts, jerseys, jackets, sheets, comforters and plenty of other crap. But then came this e-mail from NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell last Friday.

No less than 7 hours after Japan was struck by immeasurable horror in the form of an earthquake and tsunami, Mr. Goodell had the nerve to send out an e-mail to NFL fans bellyaching about the fact that filthy rich owners and ridiculously rich players can’t come to an agreement. He even goes as far as to say about the breakdown in negotiations – “It was a deal where everyone would prosper”. Just what we fans — who are the reason you prosper — want to hear.

Mr. Goodell, on a day when great loss of life should have been everyone’s concern, you chose to show how greed and narcissism were all you cared about.

As an NFL fan, I’m embarrassed. As a human being, I’m appalled. And as a consumer, I’m done purchasing your shit.
