Papa John’s is still struggling, but can’t blame NFL for it

When Cowboys owner Jerry Jones battled NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell last year, former Papa John’s CEO John Schnatter slipped into the ring and smacked Goodell with a chair. (Goodell would eventually throw Papa John into a turnbuckle, before slamming Jerry onto the mat for a three count.)
Schnatter tried to blame his company’s financial problems on the NFL generally and, specifically, on the anthem controversy. The argument lacked merit at the time (some owners believed Jones cajoled Schnatter into doing it), and intervening events show that Papa John’s problems continue, months after ending its relationship with the league.
This season is already a success, not that they’d be satisfied with a first-round exit. Few expected the Jazz to return to the postseason right after Hayward’s exit, which could have been crippling for a small-market team that relies heavily on developing homegrown talent. Even fewer anticipated the Jazz could overcome Gobert’s missing 26 games due to injury. Quin Snyder, who has quietly established himself among the league’s best coaches, deserves a lot of credit. With Gobert and Mitchell as foundation pieces, the forecast is bright for Utah.
Joe Ingles vs. Paul George. Russell Westbrook can’t win a playoff series alone, as we saw last spring when Joe Carter Authentic Jersey the Rockets made quick work of the Thunder in Round 1. That’s why Oklahoma City pulled off the offseason trade to get George, giving Westbrook an All-Star partner. The Jazz need Ingles, one of the league’s better irritants, to keep George from getting comfortable during the series. That didn’t happen enough as the Thunder won three of four regular-season games against the Jazz, with George averaging an efficient 21.8 points per game against Utah.

The league has the right on an annual basis to move the wild-card game away from ESPN. Per Ourand, the relationship between the NFL and ESPN under former president John Skipper had deteriorated to the point where the league was prepared to move the game to FOX. Efforts under new ESPN president Jimmy Pitaro have been made to repair the relationship, and it has worked so far.
Actually, the part of the bet that really stinks is the fact that zoo workers had to wear Eagles gear while cleaning the animal enclosures and my God there are so many punch lines in that one.
