Ever remember a crazier week for the NFL? People are calling for Roger Goodell’s head, players are getting held out of games and practice but still earning paychecks and every day it seems like there’s a new domestic violence announcement. After a terrible Thursday night game, can’t wait for Sunday to roll along. And there’s that Saturday Gators vs. Crimson Tide game. Not too optimistic about that one. Interested in morals clauses and how it affects a guy like Adrian Peterson who is losing sponsors? Check out my law firm’s blog post on that subject. This week on FORBES: (1) UCF Commits To Its Athletes’ Futures And Announces Plan For $6.5 Million Student-Athlete Center; (2) Vikings Justification For Not Punishing Adrian Peterson Is Pathetic; and (3) The Women’s Advocacy Group That Won’t Give Up Until Roger Goodell Resigns.
