Wiener of the Week

This week's WotW appears to be on track to become an annual recipient. Who is it? The National Football League. Just as I did last year, I'm calling out the NFL for their ridiculous and thick-headed policy of refusing to publish a general list of Pro Bowl alternates.

WHY is the NFL so obstinate? In order to know who the Pro Bowl alternates are, you have to run a Google search and check various blogs and newspaper websites in order to piece together the complete list in a mind-numbingly tedious one-team-at-a-time effort. That's asinine! Where's the logic in that?

The NFL is the big dog of all sports leagues in North America; second place isn't even close. So why the secrecy on something that is of general interest to the very fan base that keeps them in business?!?!?!?!

C'mon, NFL! Cut the crap! Publish an alternates list! For crying out loud!

NFL, you're the Wiener of the Week. Again. And you probably will be when next year's Pro Bowl rosters and alternates are named as well.
