One can literally say that "greedership" has replaced leadership in this matter. And what has it led to? A substantially degraded product that is a farce for the players who participate in it and a source of frustration for fans. But it's not enough just to point this out and rage against it. To remedy this situation, everyone who is bitter about what they've seen over the past three weeks of the new NFL season must withdraw in disgust and revulsion.
You have to boycott the NFL, now.
