The nfl would not allow a sarver into ownership at present.I don't believe it has to be equal for Florio to take a similar stance. He smells smoke on all these issues and however all the rumors/allegations play out, you can bet there will be a bunch of articles. Throw in the survey and everything else and yeah Florio is now openly writing articles presaging future troubles.
There's also the chance all of this is not bad enough to shame Bidwills into selling. It could mean simply removing Michael and putting a worse Bidwill in.
Good thing cheese? Yeah, likely. Unless the replacement is a $arver.
I'm simply stating as fans we're going to have to live through all of this, and that I'm not looking forward to. Florio is on Bidwill, and he's not going to stop. (Not sure how much people follow pft, but Florio gets obsessive on teams/owners/issues and his new shiny toy is MB and the Cardinals)
The NFL worked on that specific field for over two years in a independent sod farm here in Phoenix. In total, the league spent about $800,000 on the surface. It looked great upon first reveal earlier in the week, yet during the game numerous players on both teams were slipping and sliding across the field.
What did George Toma say about why the Super Bowl 57 field was so slippery?In an interview with ESPN, Toma said the field was watered the Wednesday morning before the game, which took place on Sunday, Feb. 12. After the watering, the field was then immediately rolled into the stadium, using the hydraulic system that allows the turf to catch sun. Toma's belief was that the field should have remained in the sun Wednesday morning to dry out before being rolled in, advice that NFL field director Ed Mangan did not heed.
"So, what he does, he waters the hell out of it and puts it right into the stadium and that's it," Toma told ESPN. "Never sees sunlight again. He can't do that."
Toma added that a tarp was laid over the field to protect it from rehearsals for the pregame and halftime shows. Toma said he was told in the lead-up to the game that the field was starting to decay.
"It had a rotten smell," Toma said.
Were there any other issues with the field at Super Bowl 57?Toma also told ESPN that Mangan did not allow the field to be sanded enough, a process that encourages efficient drainage.
"He sanded it two weeks too late," Toma said. "He had only one sanding. He should have had two or three sandings, but he didn't do (expletive). And that was it. And not only that, he didn't take care of it. He wouldn't listen to anybody."
Uh, I'm a Liberal...I don't hate Michael at all. I dislike and disagree with some of his choices, but no hate here. Most people in the United States fall into the political moderate spectrum (Liberal or Conservative) and can understand and respect differences. When you go to either extreme, however, that's a different story.I think it is as simple as Florio is a liberal and he hates Michael
Not sure if they are Liberal or Democrat, but these owners Donated to Biden campaign. Most of the $12 million that NFL owners donated, however, went to Trump in 2020.Are there any liberal owners?
Discouraging.Not sure if they are Liberal or Democrat, but these owners Donated to Biden campaign. Most of the $12 million that NFL owners donated, however, went to Trump in 2020.
NFL owners have donated $5 million to the Republicans over the last four years, compared to donations of just under $900,000 towards Democratic causes.www.newsweek.com
