The hypocrisy in the NFL has hit an all time high. All we the fans have heard about for the past 2 plus years was PLAYER SAFETY. Commissioner Roger Goodell has been fining people at an alarming rate and suspending players for where people have been getting hit. Defenders literally have a smaller hit zone than MLB players have a strike zone.
So what does good ol’ Goodell want to do to remedy the situation?
Adding two more regular season games.
Expand the number of playoff teams (Water down the playoffs)
Now he wants to add more Thursday night games.
All 3 of these things will only hurt the game and the product of the game.
It’s a ludicrous thought to think by doing these things player’s will not be hurt more. Come playoff time do you really want to see your team playing a good majority of 2nd stringers and guys off the streets?
Injuries are inevitable in this game but doing these proposed things will CERTAINLY mean more injuries and high profiled players being on Injured Reserve.
If you’re an NFL fan you can’t like what Goodell is looking to do to the game.
