The only reason I am posting this is to hopefully be a real drop of water in the tidal wave of webtrends against the NFL after this aberration of a weekend of "fair competition".
People robbed of their money. Children robbed of meaningful memories. Players robbed of their dignity. Teams robbed of wins. And a league robbed of its integrity.
Dear Roger Goodell,
I, a longtime Packer fan and dedicated customer of your product will no longer patronize your business. I will not watch NFL games. I will not visit NFL.com. I will not play fantasy football. I will not be a part of my Sunday ritual, possibly for the rest of the season, until you and your league get it right again. Your labor dispute with the referees has made NFL Football a sub-par product. It is unsafe, unsatisfying, unfair, and frustrating to watch.
I do not watch the NFL to be frustrated. I watch it to be entertained through the exhibition of great talent on a field of fair play.
I am done. I do not care if I already am missing the NHL. I don't need a cut-rate league taking my time. I would rather watch professional wrestling than watch what you have put in front of us.
Mr. Goodell, you should be ashamed. I am disgusted and embarrassed by what you have presented to the American public over the past 36 hours, and I for one will not take it.
So many have said that "it won't matter because America will still watch".
My TV is off. Next Sunday, it will remain that way.
Good day, sir.
