Twit Goodell and the Fall of the NFL

Saw the headline on this a couple of times, finally read the story.

There was never a doubt that Roger Goodell is a PC twit, but this kinda puts the icing on the cake.

... Dallas Cowboys star Ezekiel Elliott is appealing his $13,369 fine for dropping $21 in a Salvation Army kettle following a score against the Washington Redskins.

“I mean, I didn’t really expect a fine, really don’t care about the fine,” Elliott told reporters. “It’s all for a good cause and we’re trying to bring awareness to the Salvation Army, and if the NFL doesn’t like that, then, I mean, that’s on them. I’ll pay their little fine.”...

The NFL's trouble with declining teevee ratings and revenues plus its trouble selling tickets for games (last week even Packer fans were noticeably absent from Lambeau) result from a combination of things including excessive hype, overexposure, greed, and PC crapola.

Las Vegas is building a stadium.  I wonder if they'll be able to pay it off.
