The NFL is a perfect example of how not to do business.
The league has never been a good business, and the league is no better than any other.
The NFL, for its part, has always been a league of winners.
But that’s all changed this year, and that’s the most important thing to remember.
The reality is that it’s very hard to predict the future, and you need to keep an open mind about the future.
That’s why the NFL’s current model, where the league sells a game package to individual fans and then bundles those fans with games to sell to fans on a per-seat basis, is so untenable.
The real future for the NFL, in the NFL view, is to try to win again, and it will never be better than it is now.
What happens in Cleveland is just a drop in the bucket, the future is better.
This isn’t the end of the world.
This is not the end for the league.
We’re going to survive.
But it’s time to take a step back, to think about how this is the way the NFL should be running things going forward.
It’s the way to keep the business going.
It also shows that the NFL has changed.
I’ve been in the business for 25 years, and I’m not a fan of any of the business decisions that have been made.
But the fact that the commissioner of the NFL said something about the business and the way that he wanted to run things is the biggest thing.
I think the league needs to keep a real focus on winning.
You don’t just have to be a good football team.
You need to have a great team, and if you don’t, the business isn’t going to be successful.
And the NFL can only do what’s best for the business, not what’s good for the fan base.
This year’s NFL draft, though, was an incredible step forward for the franchise.
We saw a lot of great players go to college, and we saw a team draft a guy who has some of the best upside of any quarterback in this draft class.
I really thought we’d see more of the same.
And then I saw the way this year’s draft unfolded, when the NFL tried to sell a game deal.
There was nothing more to that than that, but it’s really the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen.
I hope that when this year is over, we see the NFL make a more consistent effort to be good at the business.
I’m a fan first, and foremost, of what the NFL stands for.
I know what the owners stand for.
They want the NFL to be the best.
They don’t want to see any of their franchises get too far behind.
I don’t see how that’s going to change in the next couple of years.
So I’m very excited about the next few years.
The next couple is going to look very different than the last two.
And that’s fine.
It will be the same as it always is.
But I think we’re going in the right direction, and when it’s all said and done, we’ll be able to say that the business is great.
