Goodell gets it right

Finally, something has been said. Now something has to be done. Roger Goodell thinks the rookie pay scale is ‘ridiculous’.  There is no need for unproven, untested, rookies to get that insane amount of money. On a separate note, if teams are giving this crazy amount of money to rookies, can’t this money be given to something good? Charities? It seems to me that there are 30 million better ways to spend 30 million than on a football player. But I digress. Rookies make way too much money. The Players Association will fight this, but they really have no case. If a team misses on a rookie, they’re set back for years. If this gets done, there won’t be the holdouts. The rookies will get into camp on time, and learn the playbook, and become productive faster. Look, part of the problem with these entitled rookies is that they get all this money so quickly. It’s not good for them. They’re only 22. If they hold out, they create separation from the veterans, who will not give you any respect. With a reduced pay scale, all these issues can be ironed out, and the league will benefit for it.
