This past week was the NFL draft. If you aren't a sports fan, you have to at least give it up to the NFL for being a huge success, and quite popular. In fact, I dare say, it is more the national sport than Baseball. At least if you look at viewship and the amoung of revere it garners.
But, this past week should serve to remind us all that the NFL, for all of its pomp and glory, is a fairly socialist organization as a whole.
Yes, I said it. Socialist.
What, you say?
Consider this: unlike other sports, the NFL mandates salary caps, to keep one team from just spending tons of money and building a team of super stars that would crush every team they played. Instead, the NFL keeps everyone on a level playing field.
And then there's the draft, where the worst team of last season gets the 1st pick among all the up and coming college players. So, the best coming into the sport goes to the worst contender from the pervious season, while the winner of the last superbowl, gets to pick last.
What kind of insane equality is this? Ain't this America? Greed is good?
So, the next time you think about the NFL, remember that America's biggest sport, is also the most socialist organization that we all praise and cheer.
