The owners of the NFL’s 32 teams just got together last week to talk a little business (and probably cackle behind closed doors at all the money they’re making).
You’d think that given the short time since then, it would be easier to have a unified message.
Shortly after the league denied a report that it was considering a doubleheader of Thursday games, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones told Daniel Kaplan of Sports Business Journal that the league is thinking about a Thursday night doubleheader.
The league’s PR office repeated its denial of the initial report to Kaplan, but it’s hard to imagine Jones is just making things up, given the detail he was willing to discuss (including the fact it can be done within existing TV contracts, along with suggesting the NFLPA can’t fight the switch).
We anxiously await the inevitable wave of clarifications, after Jones and the corporation he exists within get together for a chat.
