Re: Commissioners Office

I think the biggest reason you don't see players working for the league is that such work isn't all that alluring to former players. They've all spent many years participating in a competitive team sport. For those who wish to remain involved in the sport all the things that made them love the sport will draw them to being as close to the field of play as possible either coaching or in a football ops capacity. They may not be able to step between the lines to help their team win a game or championship but can still be a big part of the team trying to do so. Working for the league itself won't feed those now ingrained passions.

You're as old as you've ever been and as young as you're ever going to be.
