Another step towards internationalization

Standard

National Football commissioner Roger Goodell has made it clear that he would like to expand the NFL internationally.

According to Pro Football Talk, the NFL has taken another step in that direction.

On September 26th the Sunday Night game of the week between the Miami Dolphins and New York Jets will be aired on Telemundo in Los Angeles, New York, and Miami.

The reason that was given for this is to celebrate Spanish Heritage month.

However, that is load of crap as that is just a cover for their real reason being to gage the interest of the spanish speaking population.

Obviously, if there is a good deal of interest then a television deal would most likely be done with Telemundo to televise all the national games, which would snowball from there.

In the end, it will be interesting to see where the NFL is in 10 years.

Another dumb story

Standard

The National Football League is in the midst of its slow news season, which is prevelant in the form of ridiculouse articles that you won’t see in the regular season.

So, I am not surprised another dumb story is making the rounds.

According to ESPN, via Pro Football Talk, Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Raheem Morris, on Monday’s organized team activities practice, went on a swear word latent tirade.

Um, I think it would be bigger news when a coach didn’t swear at practice at all as it is the head coaches job to get his players perfect their craft.

Sometimes a player or two gets lazy during a practice and that is usually when the coaches let them fly.

In the end, really my fellow journalist get a life and find something else to report.
