In Topic: It's about to get even worse

Today, 06:14 PM

Problem is, the NFL is profit driven. Much of their profit comes directly or indirectly from advertisers.

The advertisers are no longer happy with the status quo of "let's wait for the courts to decide".

Advertisers don't want their products associated with players who are beating defenseless women and children. It is bad for business.

There has been a monumental shift in how these issues will be dealt with from here on out. Get in trouble with the law and expect to be suspended with pay until the issue is resolved.

The NFL cannot afford to have individuals like RR and AP playing when photos and videos are all over the internet of their handy work.

 

Temporarily perhaps, and I agree they don't have much of a choice but to do something now.  But in a few months this will be mostly forgotten, and I hope at that time the NFL develops a fair and consistent policy, albeit one that allows for differences in the circumstances.

May not be cancelled, but a whole load of the fun has been taken out of it.

 

What fun has been taken out of it?  If we win, I will have quite a bit of fun Sunday night.

Nah.....Flying on the corp jet kicks First Class's ass

 

When I worked for Wachovia (before they were bought by First Union), I flew on the Corporate prop plane from Winston Salem to Atlanta.  I wouldn't say it was a first class flight, but it was one of the more interesting ones I have taken.  We flew from Smith Reynolds airport in Winston which meant the walk from the car to the plane was about 50 feet.   Boarding consisted of a Woman calling our names then shouting all aboard, like one of those old train movies.  In flight service consisted of a cooler with a rope that the copilot would pull from the back of the plane to the front, allowing us to pull out a cold soda on.  It wasn't first class service, but it was a lot more relaxed than normal air travel. To be honest, I think I liked it better than flying first class.
