    Maybe, but it's also rotten pieces of shit cutting b/c the environment makes it acceptable to do so.

    As a friend just mentioned: That billion-dollar TV contract means nobody should lose his job.

    I logged on tonight to start a thread saying exactly this, but you gentlepersons beat me to it.
    What bullshit. The NFL doesn't want to appear fat and happy -- even though it is -- so a bunch of bottom-tier employees scraping out a living suddenly don't have jobs. There is nothing going on economically in the world of the NFL that requires this. Absolutely nothing.
    Until today, I was pretty impressed by what I'd seen of Roger Goodell. Not any more.

    I can't take credit for the doing-it-for-fun reasoning. That was brought up by Jeff Pearlman and others on the mlb.com thread.

    Along those lines, I sure hope someone asks Bud and Roger why they didn't just sacrifice a million bucks to save 10 jobs.

    But hey, look at the fat contracts still being tossed around, and the jackass agents ordering their clients to ask for more to offset the expected Obama tax increase on the rich.

    I haven't watched a pro anything in three weeks because of this shit.
