The NFL’s Rigged High Stakes Game

Posted in Football, NFL, Sports, St. Louis Rams with tags , , , , , , , , , , on May 18, 2016 by thelegendkil

Viva-Las-Vegas@thelegendkil

ST. LOUIS, MO

Well, well, well look what fell into the well. The latest NFL rumor about the possibility the Oakland Raiders moving to Las Vegas has grown some legs. Now Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has come out and said that he wants the Raiders in Vegas. So you already know what that means. That means that not only this rumor has legs, it appears to be walking upright towards the 702 area code. Wow it was only just four months ago before the curtain was pulled down and the St.Louis Rams went back home, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said,”I want to keep our franchises in their current markets.”

First off that was a blatant lie by the commish, but I’m sure that wasn’t the only fib that has eased across his lips. Just for example, his stating that all three stadium proposals were not suffice to keep teams in current markets 48 hours before the decision was announced back in January. Then he followed that quip in the first week February which I might have found funny however, the quip was delivered by a guy whose credibility is below sea level. “If Al Davis was alive today, he would slap the league,” said Goodell. Honestly the NFL hasn’t been slapped enough. This cluster of madness happened on his watch makes him an easy target for angry fans but, he’s insulated by a handsome salary and greedy lust for money by owners that pay him to basically take all the public abuse and outrage.

Which brings me back to his boss and the real commissioner of the NFL, Jerry Jones. He didn’t want the Raiders in Los Angeles, he sure as hell didn’t want them in San Antonio, Texas. And St. Louis was never an option. If we didn’t learn anything from this stadium kenundrum its that what Jerry wants he gets. It was his power his influence that was the key factor in the Rams going back to Los Angeles. The St. Louis Task Force didn’t stand a chance in this rigged game. Or just go back when the NFL had realignment over a decade ago. The New Orleans Saints, Carolina Panthers, and Atlanta Falcons were moved to the NFC South. And that makes perfect geographical sense but, when it came to the Cowboys they stayed in the NFC East. Why? Cash money homie. The Cowboys staying in the NFC East blatantly spits in the eye of geographical realignment. Jones wasn’t having none of that. He got his way, notice how all the other professional teams that play in Dallas are either in the West or Southwest division?

Now back to this talk about the Raiders playing footsies with Sin City, the one caveat to this is Jones want Raiders owner Mark Davis to sell the team. Jones wants new ownership in Las Vegas. And he’s not concerned about the gambling and all the other fun that’s available in a city that’s chalked full of tourist and transplants from other parts of the United States. Davis who gained control of the franchise after his father passed in 2011 has refused to sell the Raiders. I recently talked with sports talk show host Melissa Ferris from GirlChatSports.com on a recent podcast and she had this to say; “I would go to a game, I would go to many games to watch what teams would come. Having a professional sports team here is like you never hear that.” It’s sounds more strong to be happening this year than in previous years, our Mayor Carolyn Goodman she’s behind it 100 percent,” said Ferris.

moneyWhat about the price tag? The Raiders would put up 500 million, Sands Corporation 150 million, taxpayers 750 million and the NFL will contribute 200 million. Only 750 million in taxpayer dollars, again we are witnessing the NFL looking to solicit taxpayer dollars from people that are for the most part struggling financially. I saw a familiar line that went that the NFL is not going to leave free money on the table. Hell they already did it once leaving 400 million on the table in St.Louis. Whose to say it won’t happen again? And the for those that still wonder why the NFL didn’t just expand, the owners didn’t want to share the revenue. Something they will never admit, but they don’t have too. The NFL will expand or allow teams to move, when Jerry Jones says so.
