Done and Done…NFL Style

The Inaccurate Reception

The answer to this NFL referee debacle is really quite simple. Stop watching. Stop going to games. Cancel your NFL package on cable/satellite. Do this now until the owners and their puppet, Roger Goodell show you a modicum of respect, because as of yet, we have seen only contempt.

Think about it for a second. The NFL produces a product. We, as consumers, purchase it, in the form of tickets, viewing packages, merchandise, sponsor support and the like. Well, Roger, you have been putting out an inferior product. In fact, contractually, you have not provided the product you promised.  In fact, you have provided us with a sham. That you were willing to go ahead and play with officials clearly inferior, speaks volumes of your willingness to take our money, but provide nothing in return.

I’m done. No NFL on TV. I will go out of my way to avoid supporting NFL sponsors. If you feel as cheated as I do, I encourage you to do the same.  Will it make a difference? Probably not, but it’s the right thing to do. I simply can’t continue to spend time or money on something that is a fraud.

I let Roger Goodell know how I feel. I explained this position. I’m pretty sure my correspondence will never be seen. However if enough of us reach out to him, the sheer volume will get his attention.  That’s only if he’s not too busy fining players for “conduct detrimental” as a result of their justified outrage…HA…time to look in the mirror pal!

The Green Bay Packers won the football game Monday night.  (And by the way Seattle, way to celebrate a victory clearly gained fraudulently, Pete Carroll, you should be very proud). Unfortunately, the Seahawks were given the victory by a bunch of immoral scabs. They are not at fault however…it’s the ownership group that decided it was okay to produce an inferior product. Shame on you…I’m done…

    An avid sports fan, I am glad my son is not around to see this nonsense. Between the NHL (he was a hockey player) and the NFL, I see no reason to continue the tailgating parties. What rot! i had lots of new recipes for this year too! When we pay thousands of dollars for our prized NFL season ticket seats and spend much more at the game, well you are correct. Quit spending money, let the ratings go in the tank and write to anyone who you think will listen. I am directing my feelings to players as well. They need to get their union reps at the table somehow to represent the physical risks that they may incur as a result of this debacle!

    A little devil’s advocate here … the referees have a part-time job, their serious work is one day a week for about five months out of the year. Yes, they go through training and have some other responsibilities, but, ultimately, they “work” maybe 20-25 days out of the year. For this, they want to get paid an amount average Americans never see in their lifetimes, and get a pension that pretty much doesn’t exist in America anymore. I get that there’s a ton of money in professional sports and owners shouldn’t get to pocket all of it, but I think there’s a whole lot of blame here on the referees who don’t realize they already have an incredible deal for what they do. And, most of them are gainfully employed in other professions where they also draw a salary.
