Within minutes of the Super Bowl result being known, desperate NFL officials met to hammer out a rule change to save their league.
“Something has to be done or we may as well just hand over the Lombardi Trophy to them again next season and not bother with having any games.”
The NFL has always prided itself on being a competitive league where weaker teams always can hope to improve and win the big game due to the draft system. But Roger Goodell conceded that was not enough anymore.
“Until we have a system where everyone can draft a Tom Brady as their quarterback, the ‘tie-Tom-Brady’s-legs-together’ rule is the best solution we can come up with.”
The new rule has its critics, who say it is ridiculously inadequate.
“Unless we saw off his throwing arm off to force him to use the other one, the next season is a foregone conclusion.”
