Yes, it is a football story. But it isn't about a player:

Is this guy hated or something? I don't get into sports politics.

I don't even know if HE's hated, but I think the idea is just that these people think "oh hay I'll do these AMA things I've heard are super popular with the kids!" and don't think through all of the ramifications of it.

He's the commissioner of a league that claims is non-profit but he (and all of the owners) makes billions off of, that routinely covers up concussions and horrible injuries in their employees, that has coaches and players guilty of all sorts of wonderful Felonies, and wants to waltz into a PR thing pretending everyone is going to pitch him softballs like he's their favorite movie star.

Oh, I think he is hated. Not terribly important to get the twatsphere fired up. I was fond of some of the comments at the end. Hey, does your wife call your dick the ginger hammer?

I think this is it. In particular their handling of concussion research in connection with CTE upset me. The NFL tried to ruin any medical professional that told the truth, later pretending they'd been on board all along. Goodell was instrumental in that scheme before he was commissioner. They co-opted Junior Seau's son to halt his father's brain evaluation. How low can they go? Every parent who's considering putting their kid into organized football should watch 'League of Denial'. Originally set to broadcast on ESPN, they caved to NFL pressure. The PBS website showed it.
