This has now officially gone out of control.
Brother Jimmy’s BBQ, a restaurant in South Florida had apparently posted a sign in front of the eatery that stated that NFL commissioner Roger Goodell was in no way, shape, or form allowed inside the establishment. Why?
The restaurant just happens to be co-owned by none other than Saints’ linebacker Jonathan Vilma. Go figure.
While this might seem amusing to all of us, this isn’t necessarily a good idea by Jonathan Vilma. Here’s why.
The biggest rule in business is to never EVER burn bridges, especially if that person doesn’t have any plans of making a sudden career change. You just never know who you’ll end up working for in the future.
Unfortunately, for Jonathan Vilma, Roger Goodell is his boss and more than likely, Goodell will continue to be the league’s commissioner way longer than Vilma’s NFL career. Like we said, not exactly a good move.
Now, the restaurant is also co-owned by two more NFL linebackers in Broncos’ D.J. Williams and Panthers’ Jon Beason. Both of these guys could’ve certainly made the call to release the picture and not Jonathan Vilma. If we were Vilma, we would surely be taking this route to eliminate any further criticism that may hurt the Saints’ linebacker from returning to the NFL.
With that said, it doesn’t take away from the fact that this was completely awesome.
