I don't think he's the devil, but I haven't seen an improved product...I've seen lip service to players about safety issues... fining the shiat out of people for legal hits while the league ecschews any responsibility. I've seen the game continue to become slower and more commercialized, constantly repackaged for people who mistake a high score for a good game... I mean, it certainly could be worse... but the only thing the league has done that has made me happy in a while has been putting the superbowl in new york.
What metric are you using to determine that the product hasn't improved?
Teams are more valuable than ever.
TV contracts are some of the biggest ever penned.
The league is in more households every week than ever before.
Players are better protected than ever before.
Players are richer than ever before.
But you dont get to see someone carted off the field every week with their career and future in doubt.
go watch NASCAR and WWE...
