The NFL released its 2011 schedule Tuesday, overlooking the fact that the league is currently under a labor stoppage due to what Commissioner Roger Goodell later called “that whole lockout thing.”
During a press conference Tuesday evening to discuss the upcoming schedule that features another game in London and even rarer Monday nighter in Detroit, Goodell was pressed about the logic behind releasing a full slate of games for a league that’s currently operating without a contract with its players.
“Oh, you mean the whole lockout thing?” asked Goodell. “Yeah, we’re going to work on that. We’re splitting up a multi-billion dollar pie so eventually everyone’s going to get fat and happy and come to a point where we play a full season next year and continue getting as rich as ever.”
