build a stadium with an over-head monitor too-low (by NFL specs) that may interfere with a ball-in-play??? ~ tell the masses to marvel at the other amenities the facility has to offer

have the Super Bowl at a stadium (same-place), where tickets are sold to fans for seats that don't exist??? ~ throw more confetti, and the networks won't mention it

former Commissioner Pete Rozelle came from a PR-background, yet he nutured the game's popularity based-on the game-itself, but Ms. Goodell has taken the 'hype' to new levels

if a team-owner had verbally mentioned 'getting' an opposing player, the NFLPA would've screamed like a mashed-cat, but because it is THEIR members who were doing the dirty-deeds, they are silent

hence, I root for the meteor
