A little weekend amusement for you little mobsters there. Had the President just said, it’s not the President’s business, I would have let this slide. But, he still somehow managed to work a little socialism and the word “stuff” into the same sentence, so …. I’m just funnin with you Mr President.
And indeed, he does have bigger fish to fry than jumping into the NFL Player’s agreement, or Wisconsin, or the Boston Police, or … ahh never mind. Notice how he has the NFL revenue down to the penny, unlike the deficit. Notice how he explains the negotiation process as dividing up the spoils, equitably I am sure. But … he has stuff to do.
Actually he’s right. Let these folks knock it out. If the players union is smart they’ll concentrate more on player health and injuries, not money. And in fact, I think that is the crux of the negotiations. 18 more games means there should be more time off to recover. If the NFL is smart, They’ll agree. Here’s the latest.
Negotiating issues include the division of $9 billion in annual revenue, the most of any sports league; adding two games to the 16-game regular-season schedule; limiting salaries for rookie players; and health-care coverage for retirees.
By the way … what is it with this President and the word stuff? Hmmmm? Nuance.
