    NFL Teams, Players In For A Surprise

    It shouldn't be a surprise. No fans in the stands and TV ratings Way, way down. That means greatly reduced revenue. Greatly reduced revenues mean the whole NFL was in the red for 2020.

    The NFL hot stove league cannot start in earnest until everyone knows where they stand on the "salary cap." The NFL determines salary cap as a percentage of revenue. A percentage of "way down" is gonna be way down itself. In essence player salaries are being cut - very unevenly.

    Some free agents are gonna be really disappointed.

    Makes absolutely no difference, my understanding the players make the most money from their endorsements. That is where the boycotts must be directed. Nike seems to be having no issues. I wonder if it is worthwhile to ask the S,O.D. to prohibit sales of these companies in the associated Exchanges?

    This is what happens when you have overpaid dumbasses. Athletes aren't known for being smart. In fact, most made it through school via their athletic privilege--not having to attend class, having people take tests for you, or just being given a passing grade for showing up once in a while and breathing. They were so stupid that they starting biting the hands that feed them. Then the whole league started biting the hands that feed them. This is the result. Crybaby, woke, millionaires. Boo Hoo.


    Get Woke. Go Broke. Suck on reality for a while you crybabies.
    It takes a FAMILY to raise a child--Not Hitlery Klinton's Socialist, Anti-Family, Nanny-State...I mean, "Village".

    Islam is a religion of violence and terror as practiced by the Islamofascists. The Muslims that do speak out against terror are then terrorized by the Islamofascists and are ignored by the Lap Dog Media.

    Endorsements happen because they are professional athletes that people treat like tin gods. No longer a professional athlete that people look up to as heroes good bye endorsements. It'll take awhile but the endorsements will go too.

    They can go to work at McDonalds for the new $15.00 minimum wage.

    What kind of weak person does one have to be to run out and buy something just because some ungrateful athlete was promoting it on TV? Especially those overpriced Nike shoes made in hard labor sweatshops with $2 materials?
