That controversial Bryant Gumble....

"Have Paul Tagliabue show you where he keeps Gene Upshaw's leash. "

That Bryant Gumble.....always fighting the man. His scathing remarks, which really seem to be more directed at Gene Upshaw than the NFL consortium of owners, has some of the suits in NFL offices in an apparent tizzy. Personally, why the suits care what Gumble says during his ego driven attempts to gain attention and controversy at the end of his HBO show, is puzzling. Anyone who watches his show knows that B-Gum (over the recent years) has really put forth an effort to "tell it like it is". For a guy that spent years collecting checks from the establishment as the melba toast, flavorless host of Today, he really has little currency in his current incarnation...railing against the establishment during most closing segments of his show. Truly tho, this was not his smartest move. I am clearly not as savy as B-Gum, but is the NFL Network owned by the NFL? I'm no sports show host, but seems like a bad idea to tick them off.....when they are the ones that are (or maybe now, aren't) going to be signing some of your paychecks in the future.
