The NFL announced that the Jaguars will play not one, BUT TWO, “home” games in Europe this season. Owner Shahid Khan is even worse than Ross.
Much like Ross, Khan feels that he is in the entertainment business. In addition to fielding an uncompetitive NFL team, Khan also owns a pro wrestling company. He just tosses money around wherever he feels like, instead of focusing his passion on his NFL team. Sound familiar?
Now for the bad news. Very bad:
This would be laughable, except for a possibility that I think will occur and you heard it here first…I think the Dolphins will now have to play back-to-back games in Europe. We already know that Knucklehead Ross does not like to have 8 home games and already gave one away. We will have one “home” game in London. But we also have a road game on the schedule vs. Jax. It should be an “easy” road game, a short journey up to Jacksonville, where there are still thousands and thousands of Dolphin fans. But the NFL will make that Dolphins at Jax game in London. No quick ride up the coast, but rather, a transatlantic flight to play in front of soccer hooligans.
Some NFL team will have to “volunteer” to go to London and play “at” Jacksonville. Or the NFL will simply force a team to do so. And we all know, the NFL will pick the doormat Dolphins. Roger Goodell needs a patsy, and Stephen Ross is always all too willing to step into the role.
