The 2013 NFL season has been interesting and contained one fewer player suicide than last year, so far. Below is a list ranking every football team in order from which team’s fans are talking s**t down to which fans feel like they are eating s**t.
Last night the NFL season kicked off as the defending Superbowl Champion New Orleans Saints played the Minnesota Favres in a rematch of last year’s NFC Championship game, yielding the same result: a Saints victory.
Before the game, however, players on both teams made a statement by holding up one finger as a solidarity gesture. The move was intended to show that the NFL players union is united (duh, as “union” implies) in the intense debate over a new labor deal with NFL owners where both sides will end up with a ton of money.
The NFL money fight is front & center instead of behind closed doors, where it needs to be. Fans who supply the league with dollars want to see football, not financial frustration.
Unfortunately, the fans don’t get a chance to collectively give the middle finger to the entire NFL: players and owners alike.
