How much does it cost to carry out an uncontrolled implosion of the National Football League?
Forget about the torrent of lost revenue from advertisers pulling their support, from plummeting viewership numbers and the ever increasing number of empty seats at stadiums. Forget all that and know that just one number is the root cause of the continued dalliance of the NFL with enabling the SJW tantrums of Black supremacist players.
That number, $212.5 million, is the proposed salary for NFL Commissioner Roger Goddell, making him the most highly paid member of the NFL and, according to Liberty Writers, the third most costly figure in sports. The figure is so obscene that even CBS Sports left it out of its write-up on the subject, which is hard to do when one is composing an article about that specific topic.
What CBS did report was that this unjustifiable sum may be in a bit of jeopardy; at least temporarily.
“Goodell’s deal is still expected to be completed and has been papered, sources told ESPN, but the process has been slowed while the overwhelming majority of the NFL’s attention has been diverted to handling the anthem issue, which has affected TV ratings, merchandise sales and the country’s feelings about football,” reports CBS.
Normally, Goddell’s inflated manna from heaven would have been addressed last week, but alas, kneeling players have held things up and only earned the Commissioner a twenty minute meeting with the League’s compensation committee.
Oh, to be a fly on THAT wall!
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the NFL is expected to suffer around $200 million in lost revenue from pulled advertisements. How about that? The total can conveniently be recouped by canceling Goddell’s contract and there would still be millions left in profit!
Now that’s a number Americans could accept. What do you think?
