More than a month ago (dear, June flew by quickly), Eugene Chung, a former NFL player and assistant coach, said he was told by an unnamed team that he was. “not the right minority. “This has sparked outrage among NFL fans, players and the media. The NFL has jumped into action, launching a internal investigation trying to find out the truth behind Chung’s statements.
Now, when the calendar kicks off in July, the NFL has concluded its review and determined that … nothing can be confirmed or denied.
This “verdict,” if you can even call it that, from the NFL is just another example of why internal investigations are a reverse concept in the first place. “Hey, we’re going to look at this subject that involves ourselves. Don’t worry. Of course there won’t be a conflict of interest. Of course we try our hardest to get to the truth and we don’t determine what the outcome should be. based on our public image. Why would you even think that? ”Um, well, because that’s the first conclusion any rational person will come up with. Why not just have an external source to determine what really happened? The NFL is one of the largest corporations on the planet. I’m sure they could afford to hire a company to examine Chung’s claims and determine what actually happened.
I’m not even that unfortunate that the NFL hasn’t found anything. The fact that Chung refused to name the owner and / or the team involved accompanied by the fact that each team would obviously reject those allegations would surely lead to an inconclusive result. It’s the NFL’s audacity to come out and tell everyone to trust themselves for what they’ve done despite the fact that the league has regularly lied to its fans in the past.
The league and its teams have lied pre-draft prospective visits, on their own popularity, the severity and adverse effects of concussions, the list goes on and on, so when the NFL tells us to be loyal … why should we? They did nothing to earn our trust.
The only investigation the NFL has conducted recently that has actually had any results (even if it was practically meaningless and purely symbolic) was the Washington Football Team an investigation that ended just today and led to a $ 10 million fine to be donated to charity.
However, everyone already knew how horrible the culture of the Washington Football Team was. A quick search on Google and anyone can immediately understand how much Dan Snyder sucks. So why did it take them over a year to finally … do that? Probably because they wanted to minimize the reaction. Here we go.
The NFL cares about only two things: its public image and money. If the NFL really wanted to understand the truth of Eugene Chung’s accusations, they probably would have, but why when, both the outcome and the evil, the league? But quite funny, by choosing to take the safe road and trying to avoid conflicts at all, they are made to look bad. How ironic.
