It is, of course, understandable that Vilma and his fellow NFL players turned restaurant owners would harbor ill-feelings toward the league commissioner as defensive players.
Does Brother Jimmy's BBQ's sign cross the line?
Not only have the new player safety rules made it harder for linebackers like Vilma, Williams and Beason to do their job without punishment, but the current legal struggle between Vilma and the NFL has surely strained Goodell's relationship with the higher-ups at Brother Jimmy's BBQ.
Although I'm not sure that Goodell has trouble making reservations at any other restaurant across the country, or in Miami, for that matter.
At the end of the day, this is nothing other than pure fun from a trio of NFL stars who seem to have a student-principal relationship with their boss.
I wouldn't expect Goodell to fire back with any shots of his own, but perhaps he'll be a little less forgiving on these players' bank accounts if they blast a receiver coming across the middle too hard in the future.
