A Ridiculous NFL Rule

Word on The Street A Ridiculous NFL Rule

Why is it that NFL teams have to pay 53 guys but they can’t dress 53 guys on Sunday? Whose idea was that? What a ridiculous rule! Think about that for a second!

You own a business and you have 53 employees and on the most important work day of the week, seven of them are told they can hang out and not do anything PLUS get their full pay check.

This practice of the NFL doesn’t reward teams who have developed the best 53-man rosters. It doesn’t reward their ability to scout, teach and manage the salary cap. In fact it penalizes them.
