Okay, this will probably be my last post about the NFL referee lockout.
It should be obvious: I'm for labor, against the bosses. Also against the scabs.
Tonight, though, it's about the bosses. The contract is settled, the real referees get to go back to work, and all is right with the world.
So right, in fact, that Roger Goodell, NFL commissioner and professional POS, is being quoted as apologizing to the fans. In fact, that's the headline on the ESPN web page: "Roger Goodell apologizes to fans." Here's what he said:
"Obviously, when you go through something like this, it is painful for everybody," Goodell said. "Most importantly, it is painful for our fans. We are sorry to have to put our fans through that, but it is something that in the short term you sometimes have to do to make sure you get the right kind of deal for the long term and make sure you continue to grow the game."
"It is something . . . you sometimes have to do to make sure you get the right kind of deal."
In other words, he keeps insisting that he and the owners were right.
That's not an apology.
As I say, professional POS.
