Gridiron Gridlock: Why The NFL Has Become An Unwatchable Product

Roger Goodell

NFL fans hate the league’s commissioner because they know that he is the owner’s stooge. They sighed with despair that bordered on indifference when he signed a new deal until 2027. They’re paying him more money to do what the owners want but he doesn’t care about the sport.

Yes, he brought millions to the league through endorsement deals. But it has also become an unwatchable product under his watch. For example, Goodell enraged Philly fans in 2023 because he wanted to remove the ‘Tush Push.’  Meanwhile, there have been more scandals during his tenure than any other (via Distractify).

The Moral Aspect

The NFL is the most popular sports league in North America. But that disguises the reality that fewer parents are allowing their children to play gridiron football. Now we know about the health risks and that we’re allowing our young men to inflict brain damage on each other. At least boxers don’t pretend they don’t know what is happening.

That’s why the NFL is currently engaged in a concussion lawsuit. Many people think that it’s an unwatchable product because it doesn’t entertain them anymore. Tua Tagovailoa’s concussions in 2022 shocked the world and created another discussion. The sport may be at a turning point (via The Guardian).
