NFL Double Standard?

December 05, 2010 By: Katchop Category: NFL

Did the NFL look after it’s own interests first when deciding how to handle Andre Johnson?

Andre Johnson walked away with a knockout over Cortland Finnegan last Sunday.

In Johnson’s case, his next game was a couple of days later, Thursday night on the desperate-to-be-demanded NFL Network, the league’s own baby and hopeful big money-maker.

The Eagles, Thursday, were an eight-point favorite, at home against the Texans. Without Johnson, what was not expected to be a close game — one that would keep viewers glued while causing heat on cable systems that don’t carry NFLN — stood a greater chance of being a blowout.

Johnson is that kind of player. We know it; the NFL knows it.

Am I suggesting that the NFL’s proprietary TV business entered the thought process through which Johnson (Finnegan, too) was spared a certain suspension? Yes, I’m suggesting that. I’m not claiming that because I don’t have proof. But the NFL long ago taught us that if we’re looking to find the answers, follow the money.
