The National Football League should change its name to the National Greed Association. Now, you can view these crybabies in wide screen...WOW...and you can see the greedy owners, too...all at one time!
All these ticket prices are obscene, as far as I'm concerned, and I would never pay for a ticket. I'd rather find something else to do, etc.

There's a sucker born every minute, who pays all these obscene prices for goods, services, sporting events and entertainment.
It doesn't take a rocket scientist, to know that we all live in the Age of Greed and Selfishness!
