How about a little Friday morning football talk? Yes, there is real football to discuss, or at least something like it, the preseason form. We’ll have more analysis and overreaction to Thursday’s games, but here’s a quick rundown.
This Garoppolo kid might be okay.
Saints rookie Michael Thomas just keeps making amazing catches.
Tampa’s kicker may have gotten off to a Britton Colquitt Jersey rough start, but the defensive line looks ready to go. Jameis Winston looked like he’s been working on his footwork and mechanics during the offseason.
The Falcons won, but the starting Cam Johnson Jersey offense looked like they thought it was still June. Not backup QB Matt Schaub though, he was aces.
We know Washington’s offense is going to be fine, but Thursday’s game offered some hope for the defense, too.
“We have been approached by no fewer than 20 individuals who traveled to the game to participate and be ready to enjoy the game,” Avenatti told AP. “And unfortunately they did not have the opportunity to enjoy the game, and as a result lost a significant amount of money.”
Refunds are being granted for all ticketholders, but Avenatti says that’s not good enough for fans who were informed the game was off just a few hours before it was scheduled to begin.
“They could have offered what these fans paid for the tickets and to reimburse them for any expenses incurred,” Avenatti said. “The league has a history of being cheap with its fans.”
NFL executive Troy Vincent accepted responsibility for the disaster, but until the league is also willing to accept responsibility for the travel costs those who intended to go to the game, it will have to deal with a group of unhappy fans.
People want their money back … and then some. I’m sure the NFL will make them jump through some hoops first.
Oh, and today is the 10th anniversary of Roger Goodell being named the commissioner. Fitting.
