The controversy between Papa John and the NFL started during football season last fall. There was a drop in Papa John's sales by 5% and the then-CEO and founder John Schattner blamed that NFL's inability to stop the national anthem protests by the players as the leading cause of this sales drop.The national anthem protests that started in 2016 after quarterback Colin Kapernick sat and kneeled during the national anthem to protest against police brutality and inequality.
According to him, these protests were spoiling Papa John's sales and it's shareholders interests. This turned into a media nightmare for the company and he was immediately removed from the post of CEO and replaced by Steve Richie on Jan 1st, 2018 . Steve said that the sales slump was because of 'negative customer sentiment' and Schattner's words hurt the sentiments of people especially when President Trump's calls to owners to fire players who protested were the news of the day. Another reason for the sales drop was the decreasing viewership and attendance of the NFL.
Anyway, the controversy spoiled relations and now they have officially split. Both organizations are claiming that it is a "mutual split." Sure, Papa John still has contract with 22 of the 32 individual teams but its no longer NFL's official pizza.

If you play football in high school you are most certainly putting your brain at risk for developing CTE, especially if you experience a lot of hits to your head. Your risk may be greater if you played tackle football before the age of 12 and continued to play through high school. A 2017 study from researchers at Boston University’s Chronic CTE Center looked at 214 former football players, including 43 who only played during high school.
The researchers concluded that “playing tackle footballs before the age of 12 increased the odds of problems with behavioral regulation, apathy and executive functioning later in life by twofold, and the odds of suffering symptoms of depression threefold.”
You will likely never get everyone to agree on who is the hardest hitter in NFL history. Let me give you five fairly recent players and you can argue about it with your friends all night. J. J. Watt, 6’5”, 289-pounds, won three NFL Defensive Player of the year awards. Clay Matthews, 6’3”, 255-pounds,won the NFL Defensive Player of the Year award in 2010. James Harrison, 2008 Defensive Player of the Year is one of the most feared.
He has been suspended and fined more than once for causing injuries to other players. Von Miller, 6’3” and 245 pound Super Bowl 50 MVP. And Vontaze Burfict, 6’1”, 248-pounds, suspended for three games in 2016 for his head hit the Bengals’ player Antonio Brown.
Bill Belichick’s Patriot teams should not be stripped of their titles for cheating because I believe they probably would have won even without the cheating. Yes, Belichick has a bad reputation and deservedly so. I found it quite humorous that Hall of Fame coach Don Shula once called him “Beli-cheat”. And Bellichick has cheated.
Who knows for sure when it started but I do remember in 2007 Bellichick was personally fined $500,000 and the Patriot’s team was fined $250,000 and they lost their 2008 first-round draft choice for stealing (via videotape) the New York Jets signals. And of course there have been other instances since then. But hopefully the fines will be larger enough in the future so that Belichick will think twice before cheating again.
I would rather have Peyton Manning as my starting NFL quarterback (QB) than Tom Brady. I just think Peyton Manning is a more honest and moral person than Brady. As for their QB skills on the football field, Brady probably has a slight edge over Manning but I would have to check their ratings to be sure.
I’m sure they will both be future Hall of Fame QB’s. But, it really doesn’t matter to me because as I said, Manning is more personable. And I like his “Nationwide is on your side” TV commercials! He’s a lousy singer but the commercials are entertaining.

CTE is short for chronic traumatic encephalopathy which is a degenerative brain disease. I do think the discovery of CTE has impacted the popularity of football, at least in terms of the number of younger players participating in the sport. Mothers are definitely more worried and even some fathers who once played football no longer want their sons to play. And, this is despite better helmet protection and more rules about contact in youth football leagues.
I don’t think the discovery of CTE has really impacted the popularity of watching football. There are still plenty of college and national football league fans who will binge watch game after game on Saturdays and Sundays
I don’t think the NFL is in danger of folding in the near future but maybe in 20 years or so. My reasoning for this is there is still a lot of kids going through the high school and college “system” and there is still a lot of education that needs to be disseminated on the dangers of head injuries before a big difference will be seen. The Sports and Fitness Industry Association reported that the number of kids playing tackle football across the county, has been steady for the last five years, after a big drop in the older age group in 2011.
Here are what their numbers looked like: Ages 6 to 12: 1 million (2011), 1.055 million (2012), 1.007 million (2013), 959,000 (2014), 965,000 (2015), 982,000 (2016). Ages 13 to 16: 1.891 million (2011), 1.532 million (2012), 1.579 million (2013), 1.631 million (2014), 1.574 million (2015), 1.562 million (2016).
