Mark Wahlberg is an executive producer for the show, which stars Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson as a financial adviser for NFL players.
Wahlberg appeared on ESPN's Mike & Mike on Friday and dished a little dirt about NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.
According to Amie Just of the Washington Post, Wahlberg said:
The first season of the show, the only call that I was getting was from guys like Roger Goodell saying 'you can’t do this,' and various owners in the league. And we're saying is it's actually a good thing for the league and for the players because hopefully you get the word out there with the crazy stuff and the financial side of it, we'll hopefully get these guys to realize they gotta be more careful with what they do with their money.
He went on to express a commitment to realistic portrayal and said, "We want to make sure the key is to make it as authentic as possible no matter how outrageous it gets."
Just a guess here, but Wahlberg—a well-known New England Patriots supporter—might not be Goodell's biggest fan.
Update from Sunday, July 17
According to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, the NFL has officially declined to comment on the matter.
