No other league has the same level of parity as the NFL. Even though the Patriots consistently play the previous year’s AFC division winners, they consistently end the year with a pretty easy schedule. They have the correct scheduling system, the league really is Any Given Sunday. Now AB and Jalen Ramsey are just begging to be released, which could set in motion a huge NBA-like wave of star players leaving bad teams, or teams in bad markets. AB might have employed a more Leeroy Jenkins strategy of just going all in with the insanity, but I’m sure at the very least we’ll see more Jalen Ramsey type requests. And the whole “get pulled away from your coach/coach gets pulled away from you” thing.
Of course all the suited up “CONTRAKT IS CONTRAKT” folks at The WWL hate the idea of employees changing offices. You know because fan Darren won’t be a fan anymore if that guy leaves, or that team owner might not make enough in jersey sales. I think? Idk. Maybe it’s a law thing but as a sovereign citizen I wouldn’t know. Luckily we know that NFL drama means the NFL being in the news which is always a good thing, so I enjoy it when players freak out and act like babies. Except when it’s our team. I also would like to say I do NOT like Aaron Hernandez.
However, Steve Young’s position on the matter makes total sense. His buddy Brigham Young wasn’t really a fan of people being able to choose where they want to go either.
