Two Seahawks have fun pretending to crank call Goodell
More idle time than they are accustomed to has led NFL players to do all sorts of stuff this offseason.
During the lockout there have been a series of arrests. There have been players tweeting about enjoying their downtime. There have been players criticizing NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. Now, there has been players crank calling Goodell. Well, pretending to crank call Goodell.
In a skit that you can see right here, Seattle Seahawks Raheem Brock and Chester Pitts got on the horn and pretended to have a little fun.
Pitts, calling as NFLPA boss DeMaurice Smith, asked Goodell to legalize player-owner marriage so they could show “real love” for one another.
Brock asked Goodell if his refrigerator was running because “Refrigerator Perry isn't after the 10 years of the NFL. How about lifetime health care?”
The skit took about 90 minutes to create, according to Danny O’Neil of the Seattle Times.
“There was no malice or anything,” Pitts said. “The people that know me, they know that I'm completely having fun.”
Of course, at one point they said, “Stop being a douche.”
But other than that it was utterly harmless.
