I don’t hate it because it’s bad for the Eagles. Let them get more rest. I don’t care. I’m thinking about the fans. What if you bought tickets in August and are flying out to the game and flying back Monday? You only miss one day of work. What if you can’t miss two or have a college final on Tuesday and now your plans are fucked? I hate this shit.
I love the NFL, but they’re too big. They only care about themselves and not the fan and they can do that because they make money hand over fist. They don’t care that stadiums are shitting on people’s heads and turf is ruining player knees. It’s just money, money, money for the owners. As long as the owners want to cut costs and put their employees at risk while also screwing over their customers, they can, because we’re sheep for 17 weeks of the season. God, some of me wishes Mark Cuban’s prediction would’ve come true:
“I think the NFL is 10 years away from an implosion,” Cuban said Sunday evening when his pregame conversation with reporters, which covered a broad range of topics, swayed toward football. “I’m just telling you: Pigs get fat, hogs get slaughtered. And they’re getting hoggy.
“Just watch. Pigs get fat, hogs get slaughtered. When you try to take it too far, people turn the other way. I’m just telling you, when you’ve got a good thing and you get greedy, it always, always, always, always, always turns on you. That’s rule No. 1 of business.”
Now it looks like it’s coming for the NBA in an all-time backfire after he sold a majority stake in the Mavs.
If any “fan” is going to benefit from this, it’s going to be fan traveling event companies like Phans of Philly. If I’m looking to go to Dallas or San Francisco for a trip I’m not doing all the scheduling myself. I’d rather have someone plan it out for me. Let them take on the risk. Plus, these companies have relationships with hotels, airlines, bars etc. They can just make a couple calls and get everything situated. Tom, Dick, and Harry would be yelling at a poor Southwest airline rep right now and getting charged out the ass to switch their flight because it’s only 18 days away.
God I hate you Roger Goodell.
