HAS THE NFL MESSED UP AGAIN WITH THIS PUNISHMENT? DO YOU FEEL THAT GOODALL WAS TO HARSH? TO LENIENT??
“I think it’s really disgraceful that NFL teams whose profits at an all-time high had to be paid to honor our veterans,” McCain told reporters on Tuesday.
He said he planned to take up the issue when he considers the annual defense bill in his committee soon.
McCain’s Arizona Republican colleague, Sen. Jeff Flake, uncovered public documents detailing marketing contracts between 2011 and 2014 totaling $377,000 between the New Jersey Army National Guard and the New York Jets. The documents specify that the funds covered “Hometown Hero” salutes on the billboards at the stadium, tickets for veterans and their families to attend games, and costs of veterans attending kickoff events with Jets players.
