The Rams think their hometown market is economically stagnant and thinks the plans for a billion-dollar stadium was a recipe for financial disaster. Of course, with the Rams thinking that, it has brought immediate condemnation from the officials and fans. Mayor Francis Slay and the St. Louis NFL Stadium Task Force sent responses to the NFL, stating what they thought was inaccuracies in the Rams’ application. The task force stated that it was not prepared “for the cruel attack and false claims made by our local team owner, to his League peers, in an attempt to punish and embarrass St. Louis – a city whose residents and businesses have loyally supported the Rams for more than two decades.” The Chargers’ stadium turned nasty last year when Fabiani attacked Faulconer and his proposals to keep them in San Diego. Of course, the Chargers walked away from the negotiations in June and is focusing on their efforts for Carson. Jason Cabel Roe, a political consultant to Faulconer said in an email to the Associate Press, “Now that we know the disparaging sentiments Uncle Stan had for STL, one can only wonder what Deano had to say about

    Mr. Jackson contended that the WLAF eventually hired a coach who did not conform to their informal guidelines when they hired Roman Gabriel. Gabriel was a local hero in North Carolina who had no prior coaching experience, only having played the quarterback position in the NFL. Additionally, Mr. Jackson produced personal notes of a telephone conversation with Mr. Vainisi that offered evidence of discrimination. Within this conversation, Mr. Jackson was told that he could not be hired for the team in Germany because “They’re not ready for a black head coach” (Jackson v. National Football League, 1994). Moreover, Mr. Jackson maintained that the WLAF and the NFL should be considered a single entity and, therefore, he had cause to sue the NFL.…

    The NFL has recently received a lot of media/political attention in the last year. About a year ago, former San Francisco 49ers quarterback, Colin Kaepernick refused to stand during the playing of the National Anthem and he was kneeling while it was playing. His reasoning for why he was kneeling was to protest against police brutality and racism that is going on across the country. Last year, there were not many NFL players who supported Kaepernick and his form of protest, but this year there have been hundreds of NFL players joining in on the protest and there have been two major arguments that have developed. People who support refusing to stand for the National Anthem argue that athletes are justified in using their celebrity status to bring…

    Domestic Violence in the NFL has become a terrible problem over the years, it has escalated and the NFL is having a difficult time controlling it. Dating back to the O.J Simpson trial in 1994, the NFL had no plan for these types of cases. The old NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue thought that if it didn’t happen on the field it didn’t affect the NFL organization (Barrabi). Imagine that kind of a response now? Our society would be outraged more than they already are about this issue.…

    “Three Equifax executives sold shares days after the company found out about the hack” (CNN, 2017). This gives a bad image to the public and shows them the organization is dishonest for not telling their customers as soon as the incident occurred. The public will criticize Equifax for the security breach and cause a dent in their reputation. Equifax also tweeted messages such as “Happy Friday” during the crisis (Temin, 2017). This did not help as Twitter erupted and caused the public to dramatize about the fact that the organization was not making progress.…

    Later on that year, the NFL determined Mike Webster to be permanently disabled. This information was withheld from the media until Frontline reporters, Steve Fainaru and Mark Fainaru-Wada discovered it. Webster’s attorney then came to the conclusion that withholding evidence made the NFL even more suspicious because they kept it from the media. “It’s pretty devastating evidence,” he said. “If the NFL takes the position that they didn’t know or weren’t armed with evidence that concussions can cause total disability — permanent disability, permanent brain injury — in 1999, that evidence trumps anything they say.” (Lauren Ezell,…
