Believe it or not, as I watched the backpedaling by Goodell and Friends after the Monday Night debacle, I found an odd comparison with the latest installment of what I like to call “As the Mortgage Settlement Turns”.
The basic premise is this, if you lost your home to foreclosure, you’ll get a claims form, if you fill it out and you’re deemed eligible, you could get some money for your troubles.
When you take a long hard look at this process, you’ll probably see, as I have, that this process is inherently flawed from the get-go.
It’s why I’m not assisting my clients fill out these forms. I am not getting involved.
So how does this relate back to the NFL? Well since the lockout started every statement that came from the League was a complete and utter whitewash of the problems caused by the use of the replacement referees.
Rather than apologizing or even acknowledging their mistake, a mistake millions of people saw with their own eyes, the NFL just stuck to a hollow narrative and hoped we’d just accept it and move on. Just as the government and the banks are trying to do now with this flimsy settlement.
